VARIATIONS OF COVERING

The options available with steel covering are numerous. Due to this, every landowner can create a unique design, which will make a house stand out. Still covering might be made with either vertical or horizontal metal siding panels depending on the preferences & the desired effect. Observe the most frequently used types of metal siding for houses:

  • Corrugated

    It’s one of the most appropriate & popular choices for the residential area. The panels are characterized by a ribbed look. Thanks to this, the surface becomes more resistant to significant denting (for instance, caused by hails). The covering is versatile and comes in very different shades & sizes.
