One effective way to make your home stand out is by utilizing steel siding. Not only does steel siding provide strong protection, but it also enhances the appearance of your home.

However, not all steel siding is made equal. As we look deeper into how steel siding can brighten up your home, you will discover how Rollex sets the standard in this category.

What is Steel Siding?

Steel siding is a great choice for residential siding because it is attractive, easy to maintain and very robust. It has a zinc coating that helps prevent rust and corrosion to make it even more durable. You can choose from a range of styles and colors, including panels and vertical boards, which makes it suitable for many different types of homes and businesses.

Advantages of Steel Siding

If durability and easy upkeep are on your checklist for siding material, steel siding is an ideal selection for your home. Thanks to its robust nature, coupled with the broad spectrum of colors it comes in, it's not hard to discover a hue that will amplify the aesthetic appeal of your home.

Distinct from vinyl siding that loses its color due to sun exposure or wood siding which necessitates recurrent repainting, steel siding has the ability to withstand a myriad of weather situations to preserve the look of your home. Consider the following benefits:


Steel siding is very low maintenance, it doesn't absorb water, grow mold or mildew and insects can't bore through it. In addition to this, steel siding is very easy to clean. With just the occasional rinse of water from a garden hose, your steel siding can look like new in no time. If there is noticeable dirt buildup, all you need to do is apply a simple cleaning solution and rinse it with water — no harsh chemicals or abrasive cleansers are required!

Plus, with Rollex’s metal siding, there’s no need for repainting or caulking because of its factory-applied baked-on coating. This means your home will maintain its curb appeal for years to come without tireless upkeep.


Steel siding is incredibly durable, and it can withstand severe weather and changes in temperature. Unlike other siding, steel siding will not crack, chip, rust, blister or peel as it resists damage from UV lights, weather conditions and humidity. Because of this, your steel siding will not only look great for longer but will maintain its structural integrity as well.

Fire Resistance

Metal is non-combustible, so steel siding is a good choice if you live in areas prone to wildfires. In addition, it’s resilient against high-heat exposure means it won’t burn or melt if your grill is placed too close to your home or a spark from your outdoor firepit lands on the siding.

Environmental Impact

When purchasing steel siding from a trusted manufacturer, you can feel good knowing that you’re investing in an environmentally-friendly siding. At Rollex, our processes and products are specifically developed to reduce waste and conserve energy. Our steel siding can be continuously recycled and decreases maintenance and replacement costs over the lifetime of your home.


Metal siding can reflect heat, which can help lower your air conditioning energy consumption and costs while increasing indoor comfort.

Understanding Your Neighborhood Aesthetic

While you should not feel coerced into copying the design of every other house in your neighborhood, being aware of common decorating styles could be beneficial. A well-coordinated look can enhance not just your curb appeal, but also your home's potential market value if you ever decide to sell. Blending in does not mean sacrificing uniqueness — it's about knowing how to stand out in a subtle way.

Choosing Colors That Align with Your Home's Architecture

When choosing colors for your home, consider its architectural style. For example, if your home is designed in a Cape Cod, Federal or Georgian style, lighter shades like grays, blues, tans, light browns and neutral earth tones will enhance its welcoming feel.

In contrast, if your home is a Craftsman or Victorian style, medium to dark tones will highlight the pillars, trim and gables to add depth and character.

Consider the Size of Your Home

Your home's size is another factor in your color choice. The smaller the house, the bolder the color can be. Conversely, larger homes are better suited to lighter shades, which help to prevent them from looking overwhelming. A smaller house can pop with a rich chocolate brown or a deep barn red while larger homes often benefit from softer grays, blues, tans and greens.

Recognize the Role of Region

The region where you live can have a significant influence on your choice of colors and styles for steel siding.

The climate of your area can affect your color selection. If you're in a warm area, it's best to opt for light-toned siding like white and tan because they reflect the sunlight and will help keep your house cooler. Rollex’s Navigator steel siding offers a variety of light color options to fit your needs, such as Antique Almond or Snowmist.

If you live in a colder region, dark-colored steel siding can help contain the heat inside your home. If you live in a place with both cold winters and hot summers, you might find our Navigator Iron Gray or Granite Gray to be a good choice. For a medium-toned color, consider Navigator Steel Ember Grey or Boothbay Blue.

The colors and textures you choose can blend with or contrast against your local environment. For instance, if you live in a forested area, you might choose a green or brown hue to harmonize with the surroundings. If you're in a coastal region, blues, whites or sandy colors could complement the seascape.

Depending on your region, prevalent architectural styles may influence your siding choice. If you live in a historic district or certain neighborhoods, there might be rules and regulations about the colors and materials you can use on your home's exterior. Make sure to check with local authorities or homeowners associations for any restrictions.

In some regions, specific colors or styles may carry cultural significance or are simply favored due to tradition. It's always good to consider this as it can add to your home's aesthetic appeal in the context of your community.

Depending on the conditions of your region, materials can weather in particular ways. For instance, if you live in a wet climate, certain materials or colors might show age or weather damage more quickly. You will need a color and material that resists weathering and maintains its appearance over time.

Choosing the perfect color for your steel siding may seem daunting, but the effort is rewarding. A new and vibrant exterior not only gives your home a brand-new look but it can also increase your curb appeal and potentially save you money on your utility bills.
