LUX panel is an exterior contractor’s dream. It’s available in a multitude of colours and textures, is affordable and is a Canadian made product. Additionally it comes with a number of benefits and certifications, and best of all it is simple to install.
If you’re wondering why Lux Panel, well, for one, it’s made from heavy gauge, galvanized steel. Furthermore, 30 years of experience went into the design to create a metal cladding product that is unique to the cladding industry. Lux Panel can be used as siding, soffit or in other exterior cladding applications. Lux Panel also comes in a variety of colours and textured looks. With over 56 options to choose from, there’s something for everyone.
Vinyl has been a popular choice for residential cladding since it was first introduced to the market in the 1950s. At Soft Metal Experts we work with Mitten Building Products to offer vinyl siding, soffit and cladding to the Calgary area. Mitten offers several vinyl colours and styles to choose from.
Vinyl siding, soffit and cladding are an more affordable option. It’s durable, long-lasting and low maintenance. Vinyl is also an energy efficient solution. For example, insulated vinyl siding can help keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Colour choices range from darker earth tones to lighter pastels. In addition to being Soft Metal experts, we’re also experts at installing vinyl cladding applications in Calgary.
Metal panel siding, soffit or cladding is one of the hardiest types of materials you can use. Made from corrugated metal panels, Soft Metal Experts can expertly install pre-painted or galvanized 24-gauge to 30-gauge metal to your property. Corrugated metal siding and roofing are becoming a more common on residential properties.
Corrugated metal is durable, recyclable and comes in a range of colours, making it an attractive choice. In an area prone to hail storms, this is a product that will also stand up against Calgary’s temperamental weather patterns. Metal panels are dent, buckle and warp resistance. We believe in building trusted partnerships with manufacturers, which is why our metal panels come from Westform Metals.
As a homeowner you want to do the best you can to protect your home. That’s why it’s important to also care for the exterior of your property and not just when an emergency happens. One area that can be neglected by homeowners is the soffit vent and fascia board.
Properly installed and vented soffit and fascia is important to preventing moisture buildup in your attic. Without a proper soffit and fascia installation moisture will seep into your home, resulting in water damage and dry rot. In the end you will spend more repairing the system as a whole than you would have by replacing the existing nonfunctional system in the first place.
One way to look at it is to consider the attic to be the respiratory system of your home. Like you it needs to breathe. Your roof soffit and fascia act as the inhale, while your roof ventilation acts as the exhale. This creates a natural draft which will keep your attic dry and free of mould.
What Is Fascia Board
Fascia works directly with the soffit vents. But, because it’s more visible, it needs to look good if you’re going for curb appeal. It also plays an important role as it’s the last line of defense for the bottom row of your roof. It’s what your gutters are installed on and adds extra protection to your property. We provide professional soffit installation, taking all of these factors into consideration, leaving you with a system that’s easy to maintain, looks good and functions in the way it should.
Keep Pests Out
Additionally, soffit and fascia act as a barrier against animals and insects. With the right installation they won’t be able to get into your home. Broken or damaged soffit vents or fascia board should be replaced as soon as you notices them, or soon you’ll have to deal with bees and wasps making it their home.
Cooler In The Summer
Another benefit to a proper soffit and fascia installation is heat also has a place to escape to in the summer, keeping your house cooler and more bearable during those summer months. At Soft Metal Experts we specializes in soffit and fascia repair and installation in Calgary. We’re able to work with each client and determine the best solution for their home. When it comes to installing aluminium soffit we have the team and experience to get the job done right every time.

LUX panel is by far the best new siding solution in decades. This is a product I have dreamed of in my little soft metal head for years. In fact, we would custom manufacture similar products before this line was developed. Finally, it’s here and it’s affordable.
LUX panel merges all the most important aspects of exterior cladding and siding solutions. Not only is it beautiful and functional, it’s also a durable and green solution.
The line up of options are virtually endless. We can form it into any trim to make custom caps and large vertical or horizontal siding patterns (other than V-groove). Even standing seam roofing can be made from this beautiful material.
Best of all, LUX is manufactured in Canada, eliminating costly steel tariffs and reducing delivery time. Many cladding products are shipped in pre-set lengths. However, with LUX panel we can custom order the right size for your project. This allows us to cut back on wasted materials.
LUX Architectural Panel offers a 25-year finish warranty on all of its products. In addition, it’s a non-combustible steel that has a Class A Fire Rating. There are 37 woodgrain, metallic and textured colours to choose from, as well as 19 solid colours options.
Cladding is the perfect finishing touch that can be added to a commercial or residential property. Wall cladding, exterior cladding, window cladding it’s all essentially the same thing just used in different applications. Aluminium cladding is a metal feature that that’s applied over another material to add an extra layer of protection.
Metal cladding, made from coated aluminum or steel, is the best way to finish your windows and other exterior trim because, unlike wood or “smart trim,” it almost never has to be repainted. This means you can enjoy it worry free for years to come.
Metal cladding is also incredibly valuable and lasts much longer then wood alternatives. It maintains its sharp look over the years and won’t twist, warp, or expand. Soft Metal Experts can create a custom exterior cladding design specifically for your home. Using our portable break, we can bend metal to custom fit any project right on site, saving you time and money. Our metal cladding is pre-painted aluminum and comes with a 20-year manufacturer warranty, guaranteeing the paint will not fade, bubble, split or crack.
Because it comes in a variety of colours and metals — including real copper, smooth finishes and woodgrain finishes to name a few — it’s best if you give us a call or send an email so we can go over all the options available to you.
Soft Metal Experts isn’t just your residential custom cladding expert. We also work on commercial projects. For our commercial clients we can create a design based off your needs. We can help identify the problem, design a solution and build it using a heavier steel product to complete installation. Give us a call and let’s get started today.
