Aluminum siding is a very popular option for homeowners in the US. Aluminum has been used this way since the 40s, and it has gradually improved so that it has become the high quality type of siding it is today. You can select different thickness of the aluminum siding depending on what protection you would like. The thicker the material, the better it will withstand damage, but at the same time, the price will go up. If you are worried about denting your siding, a thicker material would definitely give you some peace of mind, especially if you have active children that tend to be rough on their surroundings.
Aluminum siding does not have issues with mold, rust, bugs, woodpeckers or rust, so that makes it superior to other materials. While it might not be as cheap as vinyl siding, it is definitely a quality choice. It is a little more difficult to install than some other materials, but if you aren’t doing the work yourself, that might not be a major concern.
