Aluminium Siding Manufacturers
USA: Aluminum Siding Manufacturers
ABOUT ALUMINUM SIDING
Aluminum siding became popular after the Second World War. Reduction in military production had left excess manufacturing capacity in aluminum in the USA and Canada, and aluminum siding was developed as a diversification product. In recent years vinyl siding has tended to predominate over aluminum, due to its lower cost and greater resistance to denting. Aluminum siding continues to be used, particularly in Canada. It is available in a range of profiles designed to simulate various types of wooden siding. These profiles include: Vertical V, Vertical Board & Batten, Clapboard, and Cove. A range of powder-coated colors is available, normally white, gray and sand or clay colors.
Aluminum that has begun to 'chalk' or deteriorate on the surface may be painted. For this, the siding needs to be cleaned thoroughly. When the siding is completely dry a primer paint designed for aluminum should be applied. After fine sanding, a top coat can be applied. This is normally of flat or semi-gloss acrylic paint.
