When vinyl siding hit the market it made a huge impact in the home construction industry. Today, there is a new siding material that is reaching new customers and some who are looking into redoing, updating, or upgrading the exteriors of their homes.
As hard as technology continues to move forward, the home construction industry still has not created a self-cleaning siding. That said, steel siding is fast getting a substantial niche in the siding industry.
Steel siding, like all siding materials, should be cleaned at least once a year. Unlike other siding materials that you may have on a home, steel siding can stand up to a pressure washer cleaning.
