Horizontal Metal Siding
A simple way to add depth and visual interest to the exterior of your home is to run metal siding panels horizontally. Running panels horizontally can create long, clean lines and create the illusion of bigger, longer buildings and homes. Whether you want your entire exterior horizontal or want to mix vertical in with it, the options to achieve the style you want are virtually endless.

Using metal panels on the interior of a home or building has become an increasingly popular design trend over the years. From a simple wainscot to full accent walls, using metal is a great way to add texture to an interior. The modern flair metal provides paired with materials like hardwood floors or beautiful masonry work on fireplaces makes the perfect complement. Using metal panels horizontally can create beautiful, unique accents and provide your home or building with increased protection that will last for decades to come.
