SuperGard's superior construction is visible from the start. Built to withstand even the most punishing weather, each high-performance Galvalume® AZ-50 steel panel is virtually "weather-sealed" in a thick PVC finish that's three and one-half times thicker than most conventional coatings. The uncompromising endurance of this heavy-gauge siding promises lasting beauty and protection for your home. Taking care of SuperGard steel siding will require very little upkeep. Unlike fiber cement that may require periodic recaulking and repainting, or wood siding that typically needs repainting every five to seven years, SuperGard demands not much more than an occasional rinse with a garden hose - perfect for today's lifestyle.
