— Can I use a different kind of siding on the outside of my home kit?

Sure! Though our kits come with strong, zero-maintenance steel panels, our steel framing design allows you to attach the exterior siding of your choice. A substrate, such as or similar to plywood, can be attached either to the outside of our steel wall panels or directly to the vertical steel studs. Construction methods for attaching different types of siding vary, but techniques which work for traditional stick-frame homes will work with our steel frame system.

Our customers have used siding materials that include (but are not limited to):

  • Brick
  • Hardiplank
  • Stone
  • Wood
  • Vinyl

If you choose to attach a different kind of siding to the exterior of your home, you aren’t forced to do it during the initial construction. The steel siding we provide can be attached and act as your home’s exterior shield until you decide what other kind of surface you’d like. At that point, the steel panels can be easily removed and replaced with the new siding OR be left and used as the substrate with the new siding attached directly over.
