You probably have many questions when trying to find the right siding for your home. Many siding options are available, and they all have pros and cons.
Seamless siding is a great and popular option for new siding or siding replacement. If you’ve never heard of this kind of siding or have questions about it, you’re in luck. As a siding contractor and seamless siding installer, Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors is here to help!
While we always recommend you give us a call for individualized siding help, this guide goes over the basics of seamless siding. Read on to learn about this sturdy type of siding.
Seamless Siding: What Is It & Why Use It?
Perhaps it would be helpful to describe what seamless siding is by describing what it isn’t. If you’ve ever looked at a traditional vinyl siding installation job, you’re most likely looking at seamedsiding composed of many smaller planks that sit on top. You’ll notice multiple seams where siding parts join together.
Seamless siding, however, wraps your home in singular, uniform material. This eliminates gaps in your siding job.
Seamless siding is made of steel, creating a more uniform, smooth look to your home’s exterior.
Benefits of Seamless Siding
Before we get into the advantages, we want to note that there are limitations to seamless siding. Some homes are too tall or have runs that are too long, which would make it nearly impossible for seamless siding.
That’s why our team at Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors takes every project on a case-by-case basis. For homeowners interested in seamless siding, we discuss the option with the homeowner at the time of the on-site home estimate.
Why use seamless siding instead of a traditional, seamed variety? There are quite a few reasons, both practical and aesthetic.
Creates a Polished Look
Seamed siding, as its name implies, has seams – places where the siding planks intersect. While this look is common on many traditional siding jobs, some homeowners do not like the ridged, bumpy form it creates.
Seamless siding is a more sleek, uniform look. It’s a great way to show off the architecture of your home.
Enhanced Moisture Protection
Due to the inherent nature of the product, typical siding installation jobs have gaps between boards where moisture can seep in, and mold can hide. In our wet Minnesota winters and springs, this is certainly something every homeowner should be concerned with!
Luckily, if you own seamless siding, you’ve got nothing to worry about. Its comparative lack of gaps functions as a watertight barrier.
Have you ever had a plank of siding fly off in a storm? It leaves quite the eyesore but also leaves you liable for replacement costs. Plus, that siding plank could easily blow around and cause damage to other parts of your house.
With Minnesota’s lengthy storm season and generally strong winds, seamless siding renders itself an elegant solution. Because it’s composed of singular units, it’s almost impossible to tear from your house.
When you combine this with the durability and sturdiness of steel siding from Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors, your home can stand up to anything that comes its way.
Why Steel Siding Doesn’t Rust
While steel siding might seem like a risk because of the potential to rust, steel siding is protected from rust problems. Seamless siding is actually created using galvanized steel. This means it’s covered in a zinc coating that keeps the materials from rusting due to water or moisture buildup.
Who Can Make Use of Seamless Siding?
Pretty much any homeowner! At Tony’s Lifetime Exteriors, we believe everyone deserves a beautiful, long-lasting, and functional home. Seamless siding definitely helps facilitate this.
If you’re concerned about looks, seamless siding comes in various colors and shapes; seamless steel siding can even look like logs. Seamless siding suits any homeowner who knows they deserve the best functionality and looks.
