Steel or Aluminum Siding Compared to Alternative Options
It’s not often used in my area, but the the ease of recycling steel and aluminum siding has piqued my interest – among other factors.
My initial concern would be towards heat. My wall assembly is closed cell foam with 3″ mineral wool on top of that. I’ve always considered exterior insulation (and now would certainly be the time to do it), but it is additional work I’m not sure I’d like to do unless it’s needed.
Just curious to hear anyone’s opinion on the two options as I’ve never seen it used locally.
