Siding Types And Styles We Offer

Our siding is available in a vast array of materials, colours and styles. The choice of materials includes vinyl, cedar, aluminum, fiber cement and engineered wood. Each type of style – planks, panels, and shingles – is available in at least one, if not all, of the materials. And each type has its pros and cons.

So how do you navigate all the options? It’s easy when you work with a professional:

  1. Vinyl siding is by far the most popular option, particularly because it is the least expensive, as well as durable, attractive and easy to maintain. It’s a great choice for protecting your home, and the investment you made in it. It offers the beauty of wood siding, without the possibility of fading, peeling or rotting.
  2. Cedar siding sets the standard for luxury, beauty and warmth, and is eco-friendly, but requires more maintenance than its man-made counterparts.
  3. Aluminum siding is lightweight, durable and attractive. It is a great choice for contemporary homes. Available in a solid finish or made to resemble natural wood, it is resistant to moisture, mould and pests.
  4. James Hardie® siding is a fiber cement siding made from cement, sand, cellulose fibers, and water. Both durable and attractive, it is supplied in long, horizontal strips, just like wood lap siding. It can be made to mimic virtually any siding material, such as wood lap boards, stucco panels and wood shakes.
  5. Engineered wood siding is made from recycled wood content or leftover lumber materials, so it is considered eco-friendly. Consisting of wood fibers bound with resin and wax, it is stronger than natural wood, while equally as beautiful. It can be pre-stained to any colour, and is durable and easy to install and maintain.

Here are some of the most common style options so you can start thinking about what design is right for your home.

Lap Siding

The most popular in Canada is plank siding due to its low cost and ease of maintenance. It can be installed horizontally or vertically depending on your design plan. This option puts a frame around the outside of your house, defining the edges and lines and making your house pop.

Siding Panels

Siding panels can be installed horizontally or vertically based on your design plan. They are typically found in homes with a contemporary, minimalist look. Available in a smooth or cedar mill texture, the panels are cut on-site to ensure they match the design of your home.

Shingles and Shakes

Shingles are the ideal choice if you are looking for a natural, rustic look. Their distinctive shadow lines add contrast and depth to a home’s exterior, creating a sense of coziness and warmth.

While siding shingles were traditionally made from cedar, they are now available in a wider choice of materials. Advances in technology have resulted in fiber cement shingles that mimic wood, but are less expensive and require less maintenance.

How Much Does the Siding Cost?

The cost of your siding project depends on several factors, including the cost of the material you choose, as well as the current condition of your house. We may have to demolish old material and remove construction waste removal and install trim boards, soffits, and fascia boards.

Most homeowners choose James Hardie®, because, in addition to being durable and easy to maintain, it is the most cost-effective option. Cedar siding is invariably the most expensive, and vinyl is the cheapest. Regardless of which you choose, we give you a final price before the job begins to help you make an informed choice:

  • Vinyl siding. Easy to install, vinyl siding costs approximately $10 – 12 per sq. ft. Installing vinyl siding on a 1500 sq. ft. house, which is the average home size in Ontario, will cost between $15,000 and $18,000.
  • James Hardie®. Fiber-cement siding is more expensive, at approximately $14 – $15 per sq.ft., resulting in a cost of $21,000-22,500 for a 1500 sq. ft. house.
  • Cedar siding. This is the most expensive, with a price tag of $20 per sq. ft., bringing the cost of using it on a 1500 sq. ft. house to approximately $30,000. Painting and staining costs are additional – an estimate will be provided.

Here is the table of the materials and their cost that we offer to our clients in Hamilton:

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
AL-13 Starts at $50.00
Cultured Stone Starts at $48.25
* Prices are guidelines only and can change based on the seasonality, availability of materials and complexity of your project.

How We Work

When you choose Ideal Siding®, you will be working with a team of experienced and talented professionals with a minimum of 7 years of experience in the industry. Our first job is to walk you through our work process so you know exactly what to expect and can prepare for your siding project.

After you have reviewed and approved our complimentary design mock-up showing you what your home will look like after the job is complete, we order the materials and have them delivered to your home. Additional time might be required for the custom orders or if any of the materials are out of stock.

Then the work begins!

Step 1
Old Siding Removal
Our team begins by removing your home’s existing siding, a process which takes on average between 2 and 7 days, depending on the size of the project and the type of your siding. Some types of older siding such as vinyl or cedar can be removed quickly, while stucco and stone can take longer.
Step 2
Sheathing Inspection and Repair
Next, your existing sheathing is inspected for rot, mould or other damage. You’ll be happy to know that most homes do not require sheathing repair. However, if repairs are needed, there might be a small additional cost associated with the repairs. Of course, before we proceed, we will provide an estimate once the scope of the work is determined.
Step 3
Preparing Walls for the New Siding
After your home’s sheathing has been inspected and any necessary repairs have been made, we start preparing walls for new siding. At this step we install building paper, flashings and strapping (optionally). This process is designed to protect your house from water damage, which is especially important in Hamilton’s rainy climate.
Step 4
Siding Installation and Touch-up Work
The next step is installing a siding itself, as well as trim boards around windows, doors, soffits, overcap corners and fascia boards. We also put in insect screens, flashings, dryer vents and light fixture boxes, and apply touch-up paint to the nails, matching the colour of the siding to create a seamless, professional look.
Step 5
Cleaning Up and Waste Removal
The final step is cleaning up your property, and removing and recycling all construction debris in accordance with the best practices in the siding industry. All construction waste will be removed and placed in the recycling bin.

When the project is completed, your Project Manager will inspect the work, and then meet with you to explain the details of the materials and workmanship warranties and provide you with the maintenance instructions. Our team is always prompt, efficient and attentive to the details, ensuring that you will be satisfied with the end result.
