Metal Wall Panels : The New King of Siding?

In Arizona, stucco has reigned king of siding because of the aesthetic simplicity and low initial costs. As modernization continues, Metal wall panels and their contrasting metal roofing panels have began a new trend in Arizona for those looking for a sleek, new look that will age beautifully.

There are many reasons for this, but one of the main benefits is that metal panels are a much cleaner install and come pre-finished from the manufacturer. They come in a variety of colors and styles, most manufacturer's offering the "If you can dream it, we can build it" approach as well. Metal wall panels are a great choice for homeowners who want a look that's here to stay. These systems are more popular in the commercial and multifamily new construction industries because of the lack of qualified installers.

Installing and repairing stucco as siding is not only messy, but maintenance that comes with it looms regardless of time. Choosing a quality primer and paint can most certainly extend the overall life of stucco, but there is no doubt that the Arizona sun is unforgiving and will cause cracks in your stucco. It is inevitable especially parapet walls. In other words, traditional stucco, prime, + paint for siding costs much less for the builder. But in the long run, it will cost the homeowner or building owner much more in maintenance and rehabilitation than if you were to install a metal siding system.

Metal wall panels offer many benefits that other types of siding cannot match. For example, metal panels are resistant to mold, mildew, and fire. They also do not absorb moisture, so they will never rot or decay. This makes metal wall panels a great choice for homeowners and building owners alike who want a durable and long-lasting siding solution.

Metal Wall Systems don't need to be installed on a brand new substrate. If your home or building is an existing structure, a sub-framing system can be mechanically fastened onto the exterior walls to provide a flush substrate and leveled panels. Not all contractors are equal in skill for this (newer) installation method. For best results and to ensure all implied manufacturer warranties remain honored, it is recommended that you choose a roofing contractor with a proven track record in Metal Roofing and Siding installation.
