How to Combine Metal & Other Building Materials

[fa icon="calendar"] 06/08/2021 / by Kaylee Beattie

While metal panels look stunning and make a statement on their own, many homeowners, contractors, and architects love to combine them with other building materials to create unique styles that complement one another. From beautiful masonry work to accent wood, there are tons of ways to create one-of-a-kind styles by combining metal panels with other building materials. 

Steel Roof and Masonry Siding

Metal Panels & Wood

Wood is a classic and timeless building material that when paired with metal can create a stunning and textured look. A simple wood accent can make steel siding stand out. Wood tends to have a “softer” look and appearance, so pairing it with the hardness of steel creates the ultimate eye-catching contrast. Here are a few of our favorite projects that have combined metal panels with woodwork.

Metal Panels & Brick

Brick is so versatile, therefore it is one of our favorite building materials to pair with metal panels. Whether you want the classic red brick look or a more modern and neutral shade of brick, the complement between the two materials creates a durable, long lasting aesthetic that easily helps your home or building stand out.

Metal Panels & Stone 

Stone and masonry work is a beautiful building material that’s been around for thousands of years. It’s a durable, long-lasting material that pairs well with all types of other building materials. We specifically love the look of stonework when paired with steel because of the amazing contrast between the two. From simple stone wainscoting to full masonry walls, check out some of our favorite projects that combined metal panels and stone.

Metal’s versatility is easily one of its biggest benefits. Not only is the building material extremely durable and long-lasting, but it’s able to be incorporated with other building materials to create unbelievable exteriors. Metal’s modern style can easily help update any home or building’s appearance. With specialty panels profiles and premium unique finishes available, there’s a metal panel to suit every style.
