Aluminum Siding Vs Composite Siding

Not every type of siding is good for homes and businesses which means that you should do some proper research before you make your final decision. What is good to know is that every siding comes with certain advantages and disadvantages. In the recent period, many people are wondering whether they should use aluminum siding or composite siding. By learning more about the advantages and disadvantages of both of these options, you should be able to find the siding that is suitable for your home or building.

Aluminum siding includes vertical and horizontal panels which means that you can design the final appearance in any way you want. In addition, aluminum is a great insulator and you save a lot of money on cooling and heating. When we talk about saving money it is also good to mention that this type of siding is easy to install which mean that labor cost is lower too. Aluminum siding also seems to be resistant to almost any climate. Things like moisture and salt spray don’t affect its properties. This material is waterproof and owners can’t expect formation of mildew and mold on it. On top of that, aluminum siding is insect-proof and recyclable. Of course, this siding option comes with certain downsides like the fact that aluminum siding is more prone to dents and when you need to replace one panel you will have to change few others because of the color shades. In addition, it is very easy for aluminum to get scratched.

When it comes to composite siding we must mention that this is a very affordable option and many composite siding people find composite siding visually more appealing than aluminum siding. This option also comes with a huge range of colors and materials. These materials are not prone to fading and you won’t notice peeling even in very wet areas. A typical composite material includes plastic polymers and wood fibers and some of them also include fiber cement. The only disadvantage is the probability to experience mold and fungus because many composite siding options come with high moisture content.

Rock Solid sent Joe to my house 1day after the devastating windstorm several weeks ago. Due to how busy they were, Joe didn't make it to our house until the sun was setting. We thought we'd have to reschedule, but Joe got a ladder and a flash light and headed up onto our roof. He immediately identified the worst spots, and though it was getting dark, he still made sure that those parts were tarped. Joe met with our insurance adjuster, gave us shingle samples and helped us pick the right shingle for our house. Jeremy and his crew installed our new roof. They were professional and courteous. They paid great attention to detail and did a thorough clean up. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the work and the look of our home. Thank you!read more

Levi (Owner of Rock Solid) and I have been very close friends for 25 years, so naturally he was the very first person I called when I saw shingles scattered across my lawn during Michigan’s 2nd biggest wind storm in history. He said he would have someone at my house tomorrow to assess the situation, and he’ll personally call me with the results. The following day I had someone on my roof while I was at work, and Levi called me later that afternoon to let me know temporary coverage was applied and that he’ll have someone out at my house about 2-weeks to repair the damage. He was honest with me over phone, describing to me that he needs to focus his resources on those homes in which temporary covering would not suffice and roof replacement was mandatory. Well exactly 15 days later I get a text from Levi letting me know that someone would be out to repair my roof. I was extremely pleased how timely the roof repair was done, accurate to the dates he provided up front. I mentioned in the beginning that I’m friends with Levi as I want to share with you the morals in which I know he stands for. He’s honest, hard-working, kind, fair, and trust worthy and during this situation I got to see all those ethics applied from Levi as a business owner. I would highly recommend Rock Solid Exteriors to any of my family or friends!!!!!read more

I needed a new roof and wanted to look a little more into this company because I had a friend use them, and she had nothing but good things to say about the company. I notice that Joe Minauro's name was mentioned in one of the past clients reviews so when I called I had requested him,, Joe promptly responded and scheduled a appointment with us, then after we started going over everything with him you would have thought we were Joe's only customers , but I knew this not to be true his phone was ringing none stop. Joe has been very attentive and we felt taken care of through the whole process. Thanks Joe!read more

Kudos to this company and the crew! They took my tired looking mobile home and made it look like new. I had siding and gutters replaced. What a great experience from the initial visit with the sales representative to the installation crew. Very professional, when the job was done they put everything back in my flower bed, my grill back and even my trash cans. Then I noticed they fixed a loose board on my steps. I highly recommend them.read more
