Steel VS Vinyl Siding: Which Should You Choose?

Whether you’re building a new home or you’re simply due for an upgrade, at some point, homeowners must decide what type of siding they want to install on their homes. Two popular siding options among homeowners are steel and vinyl. Knowing how these two siding options differ is essential for choosing the best material for your home.

At Lightning Restoration, we provide fast and professional siding installation services for both vinyl and steel. Prior to scheduling your service, take some time to learn about each option’s unique qualities.


If you’re looking for a visually versatile siding option, vinyl is the material for you. Vinyl siding can come in a wide range of colors, hues, and textures. You can even choose to have your vinyl siding mimic wood or other materials, making it an excellent choice for achieving your dream home aesthetic.

Vinyl siding is also highly durable and can withstand even the strongest Minnesota weather conditions. The strong colors are fade-resistant so you can enjoy bright and consistent hues at all times. You also won’t have to worry about excessive maintenance with this option as vinyl only requires periodic washing.

If you’re hoping to make an environmentally conscious decision, you can also rest assured that many types of vinyl siding are created with recycled materials! You can also expect vinyl to last you 20-40 years, making it a noteworthy option among siding.


Similar to vinyl, steel can also come in a range of beautiful colors. Although not quite as versatile as vinyl, you can still style steel in a way that complements your home’s trim and design. There are some steel siding options that include a wood grain to provide you with an elegant appearance.

If you’re looking for an optimal choice for durability, you may want to put steel at the forefront of your options. Stell can withstand extremely high winds and keep water and dirt out of your home. This can provide you with additional protection in times of extreme weather conditions.

Because of its ability to prevent air leaks and heat absorption, steel siding is also an excellent choice for maximizing your home’s energy efficiency. With strong and durable steel siding, you can count on lower heating and cooling bills every month.
