Aluminum siding: a wise choice for commercial buildings
Are you an architect or general contractor working on a commercial building construction or renovation project? Are you perhaps thinking about installing aluminum exterior siding, but you’re wondering if it would be a wise choice considering the advantages and disadvantages of the material?
It isn’t always easy to choose the right kind of exterior siding, especially if you’re looking for an architectural feature that’s distinctive and esthetically pleasing, while still satisfying your client’s needs in terms of budget, durability and ease of maintenance. Although aluminum is a very attractive option, one if its main drawbacks is its price, which is often 15 to 40 percent higher than that of other traditional types of siding, such as brick, wood fiber, fiber cement, sheet metal, etc.
Have you considered the ALUPLANK solution?
