With proper installation, metal siding can withstand some of the most severe weather elements as well as prevent interior heat loss.
Metal siding is waterproof, inspect proof, it does not sag, crack bend or break and unlike wood and vinyl it won’t burn.
When considering aluminum siding or steel siding, also consider seamless metal siding. Typically metal siding panels come in 12 foot lengths meaning they have to be overlapped or spliced. This makes them more susceptible to coming loose or water leaking behind the panels. Seamless metal siding is cut onsite to perfectly meet the measurement of your property’s exterior eliminating these issues.

Cedar siding is popular for its natural and rustic look. Cedar Siding is not as resilient as most sidings in Colorado’s erratic weather, but does work as an excellent insulator. Another key feature of cedar siding is the fact that it is recyclable unlike many other materials. There are a variety of choices when it comes to cedar siding including:
- Board and Batten
- Tongue and Groove
- Cedar Shake Singles
Cedar siding can provide many custom installation and detail options giving a very unique look to your property. Cedar siding can require a significant amount of upkeep compared to other siding options. It’s important to treat the cedar siding every 5-10 years with an oil-based water sealant to increase its life expectancy and avoid deterioration and rotting.
