Siding Options We Offer
There is plenty of siding types available for homeowners these days. We have decided to summarize the most popular ones to make the decision process a bit easier for you.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is usually made by combining cellulose fibers, cement and some other ingredients depending on the manufacturer. It’s a composite material that is fire-, moisture- and weather resistant with polished looks and various textures. This siding is manufactured to withstand harsh weather conditions, whether it’s moisture or extreme heat, and customized to each climate zone.
Fiber cement boards are usually pre-painted in the factory or can be primed for painting after the installation. With various colours to choose from, even the pickiest of homeowners will find something they like.
The fiber cement siding can be smooth or with a cedar-like texture to mimic the natural wood’s look. Horizontal lap is the most popular and easy-to-install option when it comes to fiber cement siding. Other profiles are board and batten, panels and shingles with the new additions recently in tongue and groove and channel siding. The manufacturers in North America include James Hardie, Nichiha and Allura, to name a few.
Vinyl siding is made of synthetic material, usually some blend of plastics. Lightweight yet strong and durable with various colours to choose from – vinyl has become one of the leading siding materials over the past few decades.
Low cost and maintenance are usually some of the critical decision-making points for the homeowners, and that’s where vinyl siding shines the most. It will keep your home protected from the harsh weather elements while looking as vibrant as when you first installed it.
While talking about the pros of vinyl siding like low maintenance, affordability, long lifespan, multiple colour options and rot resistance, it is essential to mention some of the cons. The biggest ones are a low melting point and brittleness when exposed to extreme temperatures.
There are many vinyl siding manufacturers on the market right now, with lots of new ones appearing every year. However, some of the most popular brands amongst the homeowners and builders are Kaycan, Royal, Mitten and Gentek.
Cedar siding is one of the most time-tested siding options out there. Not only extremely popular in North America and Europe in the past few centuries, but also very aesthetically pleasing. Cedar siding is known for its durability and moisture resistance if cared for properly.
You can choose to keep the natural look with a clear coat stain making all the knots and texture visible or paint the siding in any preferred colour. Cedar is straightforward to work with to create any custom profiles or replace/repair small areas when needed. Cedar siding is definitely the most environmentally friendly option when it comes to siding materials.
Cedar is highly versatile when it comes to siding profiles, and many custom options are available. It can be installed both horizontally or vertically. Some of the most popular styles: bevelled, channel, tongue and groove, shakes or board and batten. Cedar siding is often used as a soffit material or accentuating feature walls combined with other materials.
An engineered wood siding is usually made by combining various wood fibers and particles with resin and wax to make them water-resistant and mostly made from recycled wood content or leftover lumber materials to minimize the environmental effect.
Bound by adhesive resins, this type of siding is usually stronger than the natural wood while providing aesthetic beauty. The boards are entirely free of knots and can be pre-stained to any colour in the manufacturing facility. Relatively easy to install and maintain, this type of siding offers all the cedar benefits without extensive maintenance.
Since it’s relatively new material on the market, you want to make sure it is installed according to the manufacturer’s best recommendations. When choosing engineered wood siding, it is crucial to pick high-quality materials and an experienced contractor company.
The leading manufacturers for engineered wood siding in Oakville and nearby areas would be Maibec and Fraser, offering profiles such as lap siding, panels and shingles.
Aluminum siding is a premium and durable material, with a beautiful design and a variety of profiles. The leading manufacturers for aluminum siding would be AL-13 and Longboard which offer numerous styles to choose from: from large flat panels to vertical or horizontal planks.
Colours for aluminum siding usually are solid or mimic the look of natural wood. Aluminum siding is a lightweight material that is moisture- and mould-resistant. Due to the nature of the material, it does not sustain any damage from insects or animals. It usually has great insulation capabilities, helping to reduce utility costs.
Aluminum siding is a popular choice for contemporary home designs, but with premium materials comes a higher price tag. High costs of material and installation usually are the main reasons why homeowners decide against using this type of siding.
