Metal wall panels are easy to install, are built to last, and aren’t limited in color and design options.

1. Copper Siding

Copper metal panels are durable, long-lasting and add a distinct visual appeal to any project.

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.

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.
