Corrugated Metal Siding: Transforming Your Home's Exterior

Does your home’s exterior need a makeover? Do you wince when you pull into your driveway after a long day of work, wondering when you’ll have the time to give your home a fresh coat of paint? We get it. Taking care of our home’s exterior can be time-consuming. And if you aren’t a DIYer at heart, it can be downright overwhelming.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. While you’ll have to roll up your sleeves and give a bit of elbow grease, you can save time and money with the right products.

The fact is that updating your home's outside is like giving it a fresh coat of paint. But paint isn’t always the only answer. Remember our chat on "Weathering the Elements: 7 Ways Metal Siding Stands Strong"? We're building on that. But this time, we will explain why replacing your siding with BarrierBoss metal siding is the only way to go.

Why Update Your Home's Exterior?

Think about your home's exterior as its face to the world. Updating it isn't just for show. When you update your home, you are investing in its future. A fresh exterior lets your personal style come through. Whether you're into modern sleekness or rustic charm, how your home looks on the outside says a lot about you. Plus, keeping up with design trends keeps your home fresh and modern, not outdated.

But it's not all about looks. Choosing the right materials can better protect your home and make it easier to maintain. Imagine having your house experience some of the worst weather—rain, snow, sleet, hail—you name it. And at the end of the day, your siding still looks as good as new. That’s the difference with steel siding—it lasts.

Maintenance and strength are non-negotiables in our world. Your home needs to face challenges head-on with flinching. And corrugated metal? Well, it’s got the grit and strength to do just that.

Benefits of Corrugated Metal Siding

When choosing the best protection for your home's exterior, corrugated metal siding from BarrierBoss is the answer. This isn't just any siding; it’s strength, easy maintenance, and great looks, all wrapped up with a bow. 

Let's break down why corrugated metal siding is the best type of siding on the market:

  • Strength: Our metal siding products are made from 26-gauge galvanized steel. You’ve likely seen competitive products with 29-gauge steel, and you might think that’s better. But when it comes to steel thickness and strength, the smaller the number, the better.
  • Easy Maintenance: Taking care of metal siding is easy. Whether you choose corrugated metal, deep groove, classic rib, cladding, or standing seam, they’re all easy to care for. All you need is some eco-friendly soap and a bucket of water (your garden hose will work, too). Rinse away environmental debris easily, and your siding will return to looking like a million bucks.
  • Energy Efficient: We all want to do what we can to protect our earth. And metal siding is a great way to do just that. Steel is a natural resource that is built to last. Plus, it’s recyclable, which means it can be used over and over without ending up in a landfill.
  • Gorgeous Appearance: Call it what you will—sleek, modern, timeless, gorgeous—steel siding looks awesome.

Adding Value to Your Home

When your home’s exterior is uncared for, it can start to erode its value and wreak havoc on its curb appeal. Think about it: You’re driving down the street and see a stunning home. The lawns are beautifully maintained, flowers are growing in little pots on the front steps, and the homeowners love where they live.

But the house right next door tells a very different story. The vinyl siding is dirty, warped, and buckled. The lawn needs a good mowing. And the house just lacks character.

Which home would you want to go home, too? The first one, of course!

We’re not saying that it doesn’t take some work and elbow grease to create the experience of that first home. Taking care of a home requires some work and diligence. But, when the siding and actual home structure are in good condition, you’re more likely to want to do those other little things. Plant a garden, add a swing to the front porch, etc.

Replacing your home’s siding with a steel siding product will enhance your home’s curb appeal and improve your property value. It looks great, is easy to maintain, and it will last 40 to 50 years when properly cared for.

And, the return on investment (ROI) of steeling siding? Homeowners who upgrade to BarrierBoss's steel siding can expect an ROI of somewhere between 70 - 90%. Those are some big stats! And we’re confident that you ask any real estate agent about the benefits of upgrading your home’s exterior, and they’ll tell you the same.

The Steel Siding Market is Growing

The steel siding market is rising. One of the other reasons for this (besides the great looks and unrivaled strength) is that more and more homeowners want to know they are doing something good for the environment with the products that they buy. 

Eco-conscious trends are steering the market forward. People love that steel is recyclable. After all, our landfills are filling up at unprecedented rates. Plus, steel is energy efficient in and of itself. Steel siding, when properly installed, has little to no gaps. This makes it harder for warm or cold air to escape. Plus, it won’t twist or warp over the years. So yes, your steel-sided home is naturally more emergency efficient than it would be with other siding materials.

Improving Curb Appeal

Want to improve your home's curb appeal? Of course, you do! You want that home your neighbors look at, wishing theirs looked just as good. Whether you plan to sell your home in the near future or it will be your forever home, everyone wants to live in a place that is easy on the eyes.

Here are some other things you can do to increase your home's curb appeal.

  • Add Some Natural Color: We’re not discussing painting your home in many colors. Instead, plant colorful flowers, add greenery with young shrubs and trees, and maintain a neat lawn. 
  • Add Lighting: Add exterior lighting to illuminate the yard's focal points or your walkway. Not only will this look great, but it will also help ward off would-be burglars who don’t want their presence known.
  • Add Outdoor Furniture: If you have a front porch or front yard garden, consider adding a porch swing or garden bench. These easy additions make your home look more comfortable. Plus, these elements are useful, too. Who doesn’t want to relax in a swing on their porch to gaze at the stars?
  • Add Metal Siding: Okay, we know this section was supposed to be about the other things you can do to improve your home’s curb appeal. But we know that metal siding from BarrierBoss can change the appearance of your home. We know you’ll love it as much as we do.

Alternatives to Corrugated Metal Siding

While corrugated metal siding tends to be the most popular choice, some homeowners prefer our other options. Here’s a quick overview of some of your options.

  • Deep Groove Siding: Deep groove metal siding panels utilize an exposed fastener system. It’s a great choice for those who want a balance of both traditional and contemporary. And just like corrugated metal, deep grove siding is easy to maintain.
  • Classic Rib Siding: Compared to corrugated siding, the classic rib has an understated and smooth appearance. Classic rib siding is best for homeowners who want that classic look with easy maintenance.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Why is corrugated metal siding a good choice for my home's exterior?

Corrugated metal siding is a great pick for your home because it's super tough. It requires little upkeep, saves energy, and looks good. It can handle harsh weather, helping your house stay safe and sound. Plus, it's available in various styles to match your taste. This siding makes your home more efficient and stylish. The result is an investment you will not regret.

How does updating my home's exterior with metal siding affect its value?

Updating your home's exterior with metal siding can increase its value. This super-strong, low-maintenance option appeals to potential buyers. It looks great and is practical too (because it is so easy to maintain). It enhances curb appeal, making your home stand out. Its energy-efficient properties can lead to savings on utility bills. So if you’re looking to sell, it will improve your home’s resell value as well. 

How is steel energy-efficient?

First, let’s talk about the strength of BarrierBoss steel. Our products are 26-gauge galvanized steel with a ⅞” wave profile. This means that it is stronger and thicker than other metals you might see. Further, provided that the siding is installed properly with minimal to no gaps, it is harder for warm air or cold air to escape. This helps you maintain the temperature inside of your home instead of running to the thermostat all the time to adjust the settings (which can really run up your energy bills).

Can corrugated metal siding be customized to fit different architectural styles?

Yes, corrugated metal siding can be customized. Flip the panels either horizontally or vertically, depending on the look you want. Dress it up with other architectural elements like stone or brick. Add landscaping to make your space truly stand out. 

What is the expected lifespan of corrugated metal siding?

Corrugated metal siding is renowned for its strength. It typically lasts well beyond its expected lifespan. While we provide a 40-year warranty to back up our products' quality, it's not unusual for this siding to remain in great condition for much longer. 

What is the warranty on BarrierBoss metal siding?

We understand how frustrating it can be when your products don’t last. That’s why we start by creating a high-quality product from the get-go. But we understand that sometimes things happen. That’s why we warranty our metal products for 40 years. However, in most cases, your new metal siding from BarrierBoss should stand up for 40 to 50 years, if not more.

How do corrugated metal siding costs compare to traditional siding materials?

Corrugated metal siding can cost more upfront than other siding products. However, it lasts longer. For example, vinyl siding typically lasts for 20 to 25 years. Wood siding may only last 15 to 20 years, and that assumes it is well-maintained over the course of its lifetime. In some cases, your metal siding will last twice as long as vinyl or wood. This means less hassle when the time comes to replace. And, you’ll save some seriously big dollars.
