Pros/Cons of Steel Siding
 
My sister in law is looking at a house built in 1925 that still has steel siding on it. It seems to be in excellent condition but I'm wondering if there are any glaring issues with steel siding in general. Doesn't seem like it was a product that survived very long before everyone got into aluminum and then into vinyl. Anybody have a reason not to buy the house with steel? thanks all!

The coatings dont hold up forever, so like anything else it has a lifespan before needing repaint or rusting. It depends on where you are, salt air, sun exposure, etc.

Pros/Cons of Steel Siding
 
You may need painting sometime.

You will probably get tired of the siding or decide to remodel/add-on before the siding is shot.
