Siding Styles We Offer

Siding can boost your home’s curb appeal. Not to mention, it also increases the value of your property. But for that, it’s significantly important that you choose the perfect siding for your house. It should be durable enough to tolerate the climate of your location. It also should be something that can create a classy and high-end appearance in your house. And most importantly, it needs to offer a longer lifespan.

Wondering what the best options for Barrie’s houses are? Here are some premium quality and beautiful designs and constructed sliding that work exceptionally well in Ontario’s climate.

Lap Siding

Siding planks are still a trendy siding option for homeowners these days. Surprisingly, we have installed planks in almost 80% of all the homes we renovated last year. Plank siding allows you to get creative with the design, as you can install them both vertically and horizontally.

This siding type is available in a large number of colours and finishes. So, don’t worry if you want any unique tones for your house. It is also ideal for creating a cozy, classy, and inviting look.

Furthermore, you also have the option to choose between different materials such as vinyl, cedar, metal, and fiber cement. There is no limitation when it comes to siding planks, as you can get them installed on every type of house.

Siding Panels

Siding panels are appropriate options if you want to create a luxury yet minimalist look. This type of siding can make any house look modern and extraordinary, boosting the value of the property. The best part is that they are available in an impressive range of colours and textures. There are also options that mimic the texture and look of natural wood, giving your home a natural and cozy feel.

Panels are also available in different shapes that allow you to create personalized designs for your house. You can opt for square-cut or rectangular cut panels of any size. Just like plank siding, you can install panels in any orientation.

Usually, we cut them on-site to create customized designs and profiles. This way, there’s no risk of getting your chosen design wrong. Some of the popular types of panels are Open Join Cladding, Easy Trim Reveal, and Board and Batten. They not only look classy but also have a longer lifespan.

Shingles and Shakes

Shingles and shakes are not only popular for roofs but highly recommended to install along the walls of your home sweet home. They are used to create your traditional and rustic look. If you are planning to invest in shakes or shingle roofs, you can complement your roof with charismatic and classy sliding.

Shingles and shakes are the best way to highlight a specific part of your house, providing contrast and quality. They add unique warmth to your house and look refined as well.

Similar to the shingle and shake roofs, sliding is also available in an excellent range of colours and sizes. We advise you to opt for the materials like James Hardie® (fiber-cement), vinyl, and cedar for your house due to their promising quality and durability. If you choose cedar shingles, keep in mind that you can stain or paint them – whatever looks best with your home.

How Much Does the Siding Cost?

The cost of siding depends on several factors. This includes the type you have chosen, colours, material, and size. Of course, the area that you need to cover is an important deciding factor. Other things that can impact the price of your siding include the quality of the material.

To help you calculate a rough estimate, we have mentioned some types of siding with their cost:

  • Vinyl siding. If you are looking for the most affordable option, vinyl siding is the best option for you. The installation is relatively, and the material cost is low, making it the perfect option for homeowners on a budget. The best part is that vinyl siding is extremely durable and doesn’t require great maintenance. In general, it costs between $10 and $12 per square foot. An average-sized property will need around 2,000 sq. ft. of material, which will cost you around $20,000 to $24,000.
  • James Hardie®. Fiber cement is getting more popular among homeowners in Barrie. The primary reason for its popularity is that it can withstand things like fire, termites, and rot. Since it can resist challenging weather conditions and other problems, it’s quite durable. However, it is more challenging to install and requires more time. Due to their long list of benefits and difficult installation process, they will cost you $14 to $16 per sq. ft. This way, you can expect a total cost of around $28,000 and $32,000 for your 2,000 sq. ft. house.
  • Cedar siding. Of all the materials, cedar is pretty hard to match due to its unique look. But the benefit of opting for this material is that you can easily work with it. It takes less time to install, helping you complete the project in a few days. The price of the cedar starts from $19.50 and depends on its grade. So, if you are not planning to paint them and want to enjoy their natural feel and appeal, then it will cost you around $40,000.

Here is the table of the materials and the cost that we offer to our clients and suit the atmosphere and neighbourhoods of Barrie.

Material Price per sq ft*
Vinyl Siding Starts at $10.75
James Hardie® (Fiber Cement) Starts at $14.00
Maibec Starts at $18.00
Fraser Starts at $18.00
Cedar Siding Starts at $19.50
Cape Cod (Finished Wood) Starts at $21.50
Stucco Starts at $22.75
Longboard Starts at $53.00

How We Work

Once you’re satisfied with the mockup and finally choose everything, our contractor will begin the project. Our team will guide you throughout the process and welcome any ideas you have. Here are some steps that our team follows. But of course, we make changes in the plan based on your house.

Step 1
Old Siding Removal
Most siding projects start with the removal of old siding. Our experts carefully do it to avoid damaging sheathing underneath the siding. Note that the removal of the old siding is vital 90% of the time, sometimes we can install siding on top of your old siding. If you are confused or want to ask any questions, you can consult the project manager.
Step 2
Sheathing Inspection and Repair
Once we remove the old siding, we will look for mould and rotten areas on your sheathing. In case your house needs any repair, you'll have to pay an additional cost. But from our experience, properties don't require expensive repairs in most cases.
Step 3
Preparing Walls for the New Siding
During this step, our siding crew will install building paper on top of the sheathing, flashings around openings, and other elements required by the Ontario building code. Optionally we can install a rainscreen that prolongs the life of your siding for 5-10 years and protects your home from any rain damage allowing the airflow.
Step 4
Siding Installation and Touch-up Work
Once your house structure is ready, we start installing sliding. This process can take 7 to 14 days based on your chosen materials and house's size. During this stage, we also install things like light fixtures, dryer vents, flashings, bug screens, trim boards, fascia, corners and soffits. If you want, we can also do a paint job.
Step 5
Cleaning Up and Waste Removal
From the very start till the end of the siding project, we keep your yard and surrounding areas neat and clean of any construction debris. Once the installation is completed, we clean your entire area and make the required touch-ups. The project manager will conduct a thorough inspection to ensure that the work meets our highest standards.

When the project is completed, the project manager will inspect it for any deficiencies and will meet with the homeowner to provide guidance on how to take care of their new siding. During that meeting, the homeowner will also be provided with the details of the warranties on both materials and workmanship.

As one of the largest siding companies in Canada, we can start your project as soon as you decide on the siding you would like to have installed on your house. It can be as early as a couple of days after signing the contract, given the availability of the chosen siding materials.

Our professional team of siding specialists usually has multiple projects on the go and will gladly accommodate any siding project you might have.
