Steel Siding Installation

I have reached the point of installing the smooth siding and have decided to use 18 Ga steel. After considering the advantages and disadvantages of steel and aluminum, steel won.


Steel skin was installed for the following reasons.


I found that I could use a coated 18 Ga steel skin and then apply an additional fiberglass skin to provide a very smooth sided, corrosion resistant, strong shell for less money than aluminum skin.

.090 Aluminum sheet will be used for the bay, engine doors and wheel well areas.

You can decide for yourself what is best for your project.
