Metal siding provides your home with a layer of protection from Colorado’s climate, with a unique style that’s one of the most durable materials available today. The benefits that come from upgrading to metal siding include:

Increased Value

When it comes to your home you should pick the siding materials that can maximize your home’s value and provides a high ROI. With the look of wood but the strength of galvanized steel, metal siding can protect your home while giving your home a fresh, unique look in the neighborhood.

    • Give your home a natural wood grain texture with a proprietary finish
    • Metal siding gives homeowner’s an ROI of 85%

Low-maintenance

Worrying about repainting your siding, fading, or chipping won’t be on your mind with metal siding. Finding a low-maintenance siding has never been easier. EDCO is constantly redesigning and utilizing technology to provide better siding materials for homeowners.

    • There is no caulking or repainting necessary
    • Your colors won’t chip, crack, or peel
    • A quick wash can have you siding looking good as new

Durability

Colorado’s climate can be volatile but EDCO metal siding is up for the job. Metal siding is non-porous, it will never freeze or crack like vinyl can, especially in the colder climates. A crack in your siding could mean water infiltration, which could lead to water leaking in through your roof or windows, potentially causing mold or other maintenance issues down the line.

    • There won’t be any swelling, decomposing, or mold due to the moisture resistance
    • Insects and pests can’t penetrate the metal
    • Metal siding is non-combustible, reducing the possibility for a fire
    • Designed to withstand Colorado climates
    • Non-prorated limited warranty, which includes a 35-year fade warranty

Energy Efficiency

Replacing your siding can save you 30% on energy bills throughout the year. EDCO specializes in creating affordable products for homeowners, even after the install. You might even qualify for a tax credit for investing in an energy efficient siding for your home.

    • EDCO can coat its siding in cool-paint technology to provide more energy efficient homes and better savings for homeowners

Comfortability

A durable siding can prevent wind from getting in, which can make your heater work harder and cost you money. Investing in an insulated metal siding can raise your R-value from 0.61 to 2.2-2.63. With colder climates, it’s important to get a siding that can keep you and your family comfortable with sacrificing quality.

    • Insulating your siding, especially in Colorado, keeps you and your family comfortable
    • Extra insulation gives you a more sound resistant siding, keeping outside noises at bay

Protecting Your Home and The Planet

Choosing a siding is a choice that effects more than just your home. By picking a sustainable siding, like EDCO, you can do your part for the environment. Not only are you getting new siding for your home, you are getting material that was already recycled. Steel siding is 100% recyclable and made of at least 25% minimum of recycled materials. A claim no one else in the industry can make. It can be recycled continuously and never lose its strength or quality. Today’s steel is 30% stronger and requires 34% less energy to produce than the steel made 40 years ago. EDCO strives itself on creating products that won’t negatively impact future generations.

All across North America, more steel is recycled every year than aluminum, glass, paper, and plastic combined. Picking steel siding means being more environmental efficient leading to financial efficiency. With less maintenance costs and higher savings on energy bills, metal siding is what can maximize your home’s value. Metal siding also reduces your carbon footprint. Through recycling, U.S. steelmakers save enough energy each year to supply Los Angeles with almost ten years of electricity. Each ton of steel recycled saves 56% of the energy required to create new steel.

Choosing metal siding is the greener choice. Navigating all the siding choices out there can feel overwhelming but not many of them can guarantee an environmentally friendly choice. EDCO is a company that values the importance of being a sustainable company for their homeowners. Creating a greener Earth for future generations is important and the first step can start with YOU.
