10 Reasons We Love Metal Siding on Hawaii Buildings
As more people realize the benefits of metal roofing, metal siding on Hawaii buildings is also becoming more popular. Metal siding carries with it all of the same benefits as metal roofing and then some. Here is a look at 10 of the biggest benefits of metal siding in Hawaii.
10 Benefits of Metal Siding In Hawaii
Longevity. Metal siding will last a lifetime and even longer. It is the single most durable and long-lasting siding product on the market today.
Low Maintenance. Metal siding arrives to your site factory painted in a Kynar 500® color. Factory-painted siding includes a 20 warranty. During that time you should not have to do any touch-ups or repainting.
Easy Clean Up. Wash it down with a hose when it gets dirty and you are done.
Excellent Energy Efficiency. All of our metal siding in Hawaii is designed specifically for our warm, humid climate. Light colors and ULTRA-Cool® heat reflective Kynar 500® coatings improve the siding’s energy efficiency. This special coating actually reflects the sun’s rays before they can warm up the interior of the structure.
Easy Installation. Metal siding, like roofing, is available in large sheets. These sheets are attached to the structure of the building using special galvanized screws that are strong and rust-resistant.
Easy Removal. Just as it is easy to install, metal siding is equally as easy to remove. If you needed to remove other types of siding products to make a repair or perform building maintenance, chances are you would be replacing it with a brand new piece once you were ready to put the siding back on. They just cannot hold up to being removed and replaced. Metal siding can. Unscrew the fasteners, do your work, and simply screw the same sheet back into place.
Recyclable. Not only is steel siding comprised of recycled metal; it can be recycled again at the end of its life. Steel is one of those metals that do not lose any of its strength with subsequent recycling. It is infinitely recyclable, which reduces demand for raw ores used in making new steel, making it an eco-friendly choice as well.
No Rot. Anyone who has had to deal with wood rot in Hawaii knows what a pain this can be to repair and prevent. There is no fear of such rot with metal siding. Humidity and rain have no effect on the durability of this product.
Hail and Fire Resistance. Steel is strong all on its own, but metal siding is made of galvalume coated steel, which makes it way more corrosion resistant. It will not dent like aluminum and metal does not burn so it provides exceptional fire resistance too. This fire resistance can help lower your property insurance rates, be sure to check with your policyholder to see if you can get a break on your premiums.
Custom Sizes Are Possible. Custom sizing and special trim pieces are easy to create, making it easier to add special features to your building.
