Steel Siding 

Steel siding is very strong and weather resistant material. While being the most recycled metal, It also resists fading, chipping, peeling or chalking. At Boyum we have endless styles and options of steel siding for you to choose from. 

To help you decide what type of steel siding you want our experts to install give us a call and we can set up a time to go over your ideas and vision. Also you can send us a picture of your home and we can help you visualize it. 

Seamless Steel Siding

At Boyum we use a machine to roll out the forms you wish and the perfect measurement to your home. Built on site this technique provides us the ability to install without seams. Available in limitless colors we can create the wood grain texture you are looking for. 

EMCO Steel Siding

We recommend EMCO siding because of its high performance and durability. Manufactured from 70% recycled steel, EMCO is the greener option. The finish of EMCO siding is protected by a coating that will help with preventing scrapes while making it easier to maintain, and reduce energy usage. Visit the EMCO Website 

Rollex Steel Siding 

Like most steel siding brands Rollex will help protect your home from the elements, without leaving beauty and design behind. According to Rollex, their siding is the "most durable siding product on the market." This can be claimed because they offer an oven-fused finish that protects, creates tighter seems, no warping, and non fade colors. Visit the Rollex Website ​ 

Vinyl Siding 

Mimicking natural wood without the maintenance or issues makes vinyl siding the choice for most home owners. Vinyl is constructed from a PVC plastic in an extrusion process., that resists fading. Vinyl siding from Boyum, is typically less expensive than other siding materials, and carries a warranty. Vinyl siding's unique low gloss finish and cedar wood grain texture replicates the natural look of wood. Like all of our products, a large option of colors are available for you to choose from. 

Norandex Vinyl Siding

The most versatile option is vinyl siding by Norandex. No other choice unites the beauty and performance with the cost that vinyl siding offers. The color choices and style options available through Norandex are vast and can fit any budget. Many different collections are avaiable through Norandex and can be access on their site.

Cement Board 

This option for your exterior can be similar to wood, but have superior durability than any other option and often a bit more in cost. Fiber cement siding is virtually maintenance-free, will hold paint three times as long as real wood, and is easy to clean. With strong warranties, you can be assured that little additional money will go into maintaining the siding. It can be formed into a variety of siding patterns, have a smooth or embossed face, or be textured for a cedar look. A special curing process leaves the final product with a low-moisture content, making it resistant to warping and conducive to paint application. The product is resistant to harsh weather, insects, and rot; and it holds up against the effects of temperature swings in cold weather climates.
