Aluminum Longboard Siding in Vancouver

Want your project to ooze the warmth and beauty of natural wood but have no desire to tinker with all that tricky maintenance the natural material requires? Here is a solution to bridge the gap between aesthetics and technical issues in cladding – Longboard siding.

It is manufactured by a Canada-based brand that offers its products across North America, including Vancouver. Made of extruded aluminum, they are somewhat different from other similar options since Longboard aluminum siding doesn’t look (and feel) like metal at all.

The house on the picture above features Longboard® 4″ V Groove in Dark Cherry & Dark National Walnut

The cladding comes in the form of 24-foot long aluminum profiles with the thickness varying from 1.57 to 1.78 mm and widths of 4″ and 6″. It’s anodized for better protection against both corrosion and ultraviolet damage. It’s also covered with powder coating to ensure a more damage-resistant surface coupled with an amazing range of finishes.

The tongue and groove profiles are equipped with hidden fasteners to provide a fast and relatively easy installation with perfectly unnoticeable joints. Longboard siding is available in two designs, V-grove and Channel, while j-channels, corners, and other components are designed to flawlessly match the profiles for a classy finished look.

Why Opt for Longboard Siding Installation?

There are a few considerations that favour Longboard among other types of siding:

  • Unlike natural wood, Aluminum Longboard Siding is free from rot, warping, peeling, and fading under sunlight.
  • It also has all the advantages of top-grade aluminum products – lightweight, durability, weather resistance, and incombustibility.
  • The brand offers a nice choice of woodgrain options (close to 20 textures) along with shimmer finishes, solid colours, terra-cotta series, and the possibility of custom colour matching.
  • Though the cladding purchase and installation may add several thousand dollars to the cost of a whole project when compared to wood, you can expect no maintenance expenditures for years to come and save tens of thousands in the long run.
  • Holding AAMA 2604/2605 certificate, Longboard siding is proved to resist corrosion and retain its colour and gloss for at least 10 years. However, the manufacturer adds 5 more years of warranty for the coating.
  • The warranty period covering manufacturing defects amounts to amazing 50 years, which is in no way inferior to natural wood and far more impressive than typical vinyl and fiber cement options.
  • It can be used in both commercial and residential installation projects with the product range covering siding panels, soffits, ceiling systems, and screens.
  • It boasts eco-friendliness while being fully recyclable and produced following the best LEED practices.

Longboard cladding is often considered to be the best quality product available to achieve a wood look, whether it’s used to highlight contemporary style elements or to maintain a traditional look on a home with zero of the upkeep costs that other wood siding materials require.

Nearly 20 colour options are available. Use one or use combinations to achieve any modern look you desire:

Professional Longboard Aluminum Siding Installation

Numerous contractors offer installation of Longboard siding in Vancouver, not to mention do-it-yourselfers who are perfectly sure they can cope with the task as well. However, the manufacturer’s warranty doesn’t cover damages caused in the process of installation, and it is only one of the reasons to think of turning to professionals.

Moreover, inaccurate calculations result in extra materials left, which are not subject to return, thus leading to project cost increase. So, it is much smarter to hire our qualified specialists who will provide you with proper consulting and calculation and then ensure flawless Longboard aluminum siding installation.

Amazing experience!

The salesman (Alex) was very kind and helpful. The work crew, Jeramy and Vlad, were very professional and cleaned up after themselves. Alex came back and checked on everything after completion. Thank you for a job well done.

Thank you for the great work! 5 stars!

My husband and I have been extremely pleased with the Ideal Siding Vancouver! Alex helped us to get a new windows, hardie siding, shutters, and gutters. He presented us with the best options for our home. He is the best! After these renovations , we sold our home in less than one week! We would not have moved from this home, but my beloved half changed jobs. Because the home was so beautiful and stood out in the neighborhood it sold quickly 😊

Excellent quality at reasonable prices

A fantastic experience with Ideal Siding! We had 6 Companies give us estimates on new Hardie Plank and this was the only company that followed up their quote with helpful information, ideas and advice! The salesperson, Vladimir was excellent – very professional, friendly and patient. A crew of 4 capable, professional fellows came to our home to complete a timely installation; here again, Don, the Foreman was obviously knowledgeable and experienced. We are very pleased with the products and the installations in our 60 year old home! Ideal Siding made a rather daunting project a most pleasant experience!

Ideal Sliding was awesome to work with!

The cedar shakes on our midtown semi were in an advanced state of decay and we considered three contractors to replace the shingles. We selected Oleg at Ideal Siding based on his knowledge and advice and the quality of his previous work (we visited a couple of his job sites). We were extremely pleased with the work of their team. They were very efficient, finishing the job on schedule on budget in just under a week in October and the new Hardie Shingles siding looks fantastic! We would highly recommend Ideal Siding to anyone looking to have exterior work done on their house!
