Featuring two classic profile designs, Universal conveys the traditional warmth and charm of a freshly painted wood finish while wrapping your home in a rugged steel exterior. And when you consider the punishing weather and other hazards your home must endure, you'll see why this premium steel siding is an excellent choice.

Product Features

Ultra-Premium Steel Shield  Universal's strength begins with pretreated galvanized steel that is primed and heat-fused with a thick PVC coating, making it virtually impervious to outdoor elements. This luxurious yet resilient finish will stand up strong against blistering heat, pounding hail, heavy snow and other punishing weather.

High Dimensional Stability  Rigid steel panels resist buckling and the wavy appearance that can result from expansion and contraction caused by extreme weather changes. Universal also will subtly conceal flaws in the exterior's substructure, keeping wall lines exceptionally smooth and straight.

Commanding Steel Strength  Universal's rugged steel construction is virtually impervious to outdoor elements. And unlike wood, compressed particle board or fiber cement, it won't absorb moisture. It's also resistant to dents, warping, fire, termites, chalking, fading, and brittleness in cold weather.

Simple Upkeep  When it comes to maintaining your Universal siding, you can relax. There's no need for time-consuming scraping and painting or struggling with ladders. Just a simple rinse with a garden hose will remove most airborne dust and dirt. In most cases, your siding will clean up quickly and easily.

Environmentally Friendly  Unlike some building materials such as fiber cement, Universal steel siding is a recyclable product. It also promotes energy conservation by creating a tight building envelope for more efficient heating and cooling performance year-round. "Building green" with Universal steel siding is good for you and good for the environment!
