Nice Siding - Ultra Modern House - Must See


A supplier just sent me this link to showcase their stainless steel.
It looks real and like they actually did this.

I wonder how they will keep it clean?

Looking at the house's next to it's obviously in an old neighborhood.
Looks like an eyesore to me.

Looks cool but...I'd hate to live next door and get blasted by the reflecting sun. ...or maybe they fixed it by dulling the finish like they did in LA with the shiny museum that was cooking the neighbors.
Cleaning is either going to be an occasional window washing operation or they're used the hydrophobic coating that keeps the water and dirt from sticking to it.

Just because we can, doesn't mean we should.

Yes. Rimex Corp in the States.
I believe they sell the raw material and the panels were formed by others.

Isn't that the one where they either replaced or modified the exterior to a brushed finish because the original shinny was melting the neighborhood?

If you're talking to me, no regrets.
The title of this thread was meant to be sarcastic.

That house is absolutely disgusting IMHO.

Might look okay on an Art Gallery or Commercial setting, but NIMBY, thanks.

Re: Nice Siding - Ultra Modern House - Must See


Miserable looking. If that were my neighbor...I would be hot.

If it were thin film solar, that is another thing. But "blinging" out siding for the sake of doing it seems like a silly thing.

Those darn Germans do like to engineer stuff though. Definitely don't want to subdue their creative/engineering spirit as they are fantastic at it.

Re: Nice Siding - Ultra Modern House - Must See


Ayuh,.... I don't care for that siding, but admit, I've got my eye on an ole refrigerated class 8 trailer that's skinned in a waffle patterned polished ssteel,...

I still might buy it, 'n strip the sides off it to use as siding on one side of my riverhouse,...
With the horizontal waffles, it'll make the place look bigger, 'n reflect the heat from the south side,...
