What is the advantage/disadvantage of aluminum siding over vinyl siding?


Answer by  Iris (60)

Vinyl siding can get brittle when cold and melt when hot and while aluminum will not. Aluminum siding doesn't expand and contract like vinyl making it more weatherproof. Finally, unlike vinyl, aluminum siding can easily be painted in any color, making it look better for a longer period of time.

Aluminum siding tends to be more expensive than vinyl siding, however it tends to hold up against the elements for a longer period of time. Cleaning aluminum siding tends to be easier and staining is less of a concern.
