Siding Styles We Offer
There are as many styles of siding as there are types of homes. It is available in a wide array of materials, types, and colours. When you choose Ideal Siding, you can be assured that we will work with you to choose the one that works for your tastes, your home’s style, your budget, not to mention Mississauga’s humid continental climate.
Let’s start with a brief description of the siding material you can choose for your home:
- Vinyl siding. Vinyl siding is composed of synthetic material. It is low-cost, easy to maintain, and lightweight, yet strong and durable. It’s available in a wide variety of colours that won’t fade.
- Cedar siding. Prized for its durability and resistance to moisture, cedar siding has a rich and luxurious look. You can choose between a natural look with a clear-coat stain, as well as a wide range of colours. One of the most eco-friendly side materials, it is easy to customize and replace or repair
- Aluminum siding. Available in large, flat panels and vertical or horizontal planks, aluminum siding is both durable and attractive. Its texture is either solid or mimics natural wood. A great choice for contemporary homes, it is lightweight and resistant to moisture, mould, and damage from pests.
- James Hardie (fiber-cement) siding. Fiber cement siding is a composite material with cellulose fibers and cement as its main ingredients. Resistant to fire, moisture and harsh weather, it has a polished look and comes in a variety of textures to mimic natural wood.
- Engineered wood siding. This 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 being equally as beautiful. It can be pre-stained to any colour, is free of knots, and is easy to install and maintain.
Next, here are the styles of siding which are the most popular in Ontario:
Siding plank is the most popular type of siding in Canada, the choice of over 80% of homeowners in Greater Toronto alone, thanks to its low cost, ease of maintenance, and a virtually unlimited selection of colours. You can choose either horizontal or vertical strips, based on the look you want to achieve. It is available in vinyl, cedar, aluminum, fiber cement, and engineered wood.
Siding panels, like planks, can be installed horizontally or vertically based on your design plan. They are most commonly found in homes that have a contemporary, minimalist look. Available in a smooth, stucco or cedar mill texture, the panels are cut on-site to ensure they match the design of your home.
Shingles and Shakes
Siding shingles are the siding of choice for homeowners looking for a natural, rustic look. Because they create distinctive shadow lines, they add contrast and depth to a home’s exterior, creating a sense of coziness and warmth.
While siding shingles were traditionally made from cedar, today other wood types are available. Advances in technology have resulted in fiber cement shingles that mimic wood, but are less expensive and require less maintenance. Other options also include different types of vinyl shingles.
How Much Does Siding Cost?
The cost of new siding on your home is based on several factors, such as the current condition of your house and whether the job includes demolishing old material and construction waste removal, and other items, such as whether trim boards, soffits, and fascia boards will be installed. The final cost is also determined by which material you use as well as its design.
Here are some pricing examples:
- Vinyl siding. Easy to install, vinyl siding costs approximately $9.25 per sq. ft. Installing vinyl siding on a 1500 sq. ft. house, which is the average home size in Ontario, will cost between $13,000-14,000.
- James Hardie siding. Fiber cement siding made from cement, sand, cellulose fibers, and water, is a bit more expensive, approximately $10 – $12 per sq. ft., resulting in a cost of $15,000-18,000 for a 1500 sq. ft. house.
- Cedar siding. Natural wood is on the more expensive side, with a price tag of $16.5 per sq. ft., bringing the cost of using it on a 1500 sq. ft. house to approximately $24,750. Painting and staining costs are additional.
