Aluminum Siding: Why It Should Be Your Next Siding Choice

Aluminum siding has been around since the 1930s, and the design and manufacturing process has grown immensely! 

From the 1940s to the 1970s, aluminum siding was the more popular choice compared to the other option of wood siding. It wasn't until during the 1970s that a new product became the talk of the town. Vinyl siding had quickly become the more popular form of exterior siding because it was more affordable to homeowners.

Over the last couple of years, aluminum siding has started to be more utilized on the exteriors of residential and commercial buildings. New modern profiles and colour options are enticing customers to choose aluminum over other materials.

There are a variety of reasons as to why you should consider BMI’s aluminum siding for your exterior.

Boost Curb Appeal:

BMI's aluminum siding is available in two profiles: V-190 and V-Groove, both with a woodgrain embossing texture to add durability and style. With over 40 different colours available, including the Simcoe Series colors, you can create any look for the exterior of your home.

Low Maintenance:

Aluminum siding can be cleaned and maintained with a simple solution of soap and water. 


Aluminum siding won't rot or rust, and our paint finish will not chip, peel, flake, or blister. Also, aluminum is a material that is fire resistant and hard for insects to penetrate through, keeping your home safe.

Easy Installation:

When you install aluminum siding, you will notice that it's a lightweight material, easy to cut, and no need for specialty tools. That leads to faster installation times, and saves money on labour costs!


BMI uses thick aluminum to ensure you purchase high-quality products, with a finish that will last decades. See below for details.
