5 Types of Exterior Metal Panels to Consider for Your Building Project
Metal panels are becoming more popular in residential projects as people see how versatile and cost-effective they are.
Metal wall panels are easy to install, are built to last, and aren’t limited in color and design options.
Read on for a list of 5 popular types of panels that you can consider for your residential project.
1. Copper Siding
Copper metal panels are durable, long-lasting and add a distinct visual appeal to any project.
It has been used since 300 B.C. Copper withstands corrosion and so can stand the test of time
Copper is an earth-friendly material because it can be easily recycled. It is also very thermally efficient.
Copper’s longevity means less replacement and repairs which is good for our planet. The rich, warm copper hue will add sophistication to your exterior paneling.
But, copper requires expert installation as this metal is quite malleable. We do not install copper siding, but still think its a beautiful material to accent buildings with.
2. Corrugated Metal Siding
Corrugated metal panels are versatile. They work well for modern, traditional and rustic looks in both residential and commercial projects.
You can choose from a wide variety of colors to suit your style. The gentle folds of corrugated metal make one hue appear to change colors throughout the day as natural light changes.
Best of all, it is simple to install.
3. Galvanized Steel Siding
Galvanized siding has made a comeback in recent years. It was a popular choice in the early 19th century when early settlers rolled tin cans to make sheets of steel.
Today, galvanized steel is a great choice for homeowners who want a strong and attractive siding for their homes.
Galvanized steel resists mildew, fading, and damage from wood-eating insects. You never have to worry about warping or brittleness either. That’s why it is a popular choice for industrial architecture too.
It’s a low-maintenance siding option that never needs to be painted or caulked. You also don’t have to use silica dust.
Intense heat, rain, sleet, snow, and hail are no match for galvanized steel sidings. In fact, each galvanizes steel panel is sealed with a weather-resistant finish that ensures that your siding looks fresh despite the elements.
4. Snap Batten Panel Siding
Snap batten can be used for roofs, walls and siding panels. They can be installed in either a vertical or horizontal position. Or both for a custom look.
Also, you can opt for different sized panel widths to create a distinct and pleasing effect.
You can make snap batten panels look sleek and modern by aligning the ribs. this creates a smooth transition that looks elegant and on trend.
Use snap batten as both roof and siding to create a lovely waterfall effect.
5. Aluminum Siding
Aluminum is an excellent alternative to vinyl exterior siding. It has insulation to keep your energy bills down and is easy to maintain.
Aluminum siding is fairly durable and affordable. Best of all, it won’t crack the way vinyl does.
