Pros and Cons of Black Aluminum Siding

Postby Andrew Herrick » Thu Apr 20, 2017 4:05 pm

Ladies and gentlemen,

Maybe it's my inner goth, but I love the appearance of glossy black aluminum siding. Having not used it myself, however, I'm timid to try. I insulate my campers pretty well, but even so, I'm petrified of turning a beloved teardrop into a solar oven. Does anyone have some light from experience they can shed on the topic? Did you add extra windows to compensate for heat build up? Use a highly polished finish?

I'm all ears.

Search for 2bits LT. His first(?) build was really classy in black aluminum skin.

Oops, don't thank me too quickly. I see Thomas' pic links are broken.
