Gentek - Distinction Siding

In Distinction steel siding from Gentek, you have found a premier exterior cladding that beautifully merges the unmatched strength of steel with the visual appeal of organic wood.

Design-inspired and impeccably crafted, Distinction siding adds value and elegance to any home by wrapping the exterior in a robust steel shield. The 12' panel system features a pre-notched anchor band and concealed fasteners for installation ease and an upscale finished look.
  • Heavy-duty 26 gauge steel construction
  • Premium paint system over G90 galvanized steel or Galvalume provides long-term durability and rust prevention
  • Resilient, UV-resistant paint prevents discolouration and cracking
  • Installs vertically or horizontally; panels lock together on four sides
  • Choose from a variety of colours in the Wood Series, Nuanced Wood Series or Granite Series

Remarkably Realistic Appearance
