Siding Styles We Offer
With a lot of new siding options appearing every year, there are still a few favourites amongst the homeowners.
This style of siding is the favourite with the homeowners. The planks can be installed either horizontally or vertically providing lots of design options. That’s why more than 80% of homeowners chose this style of siding for their homes. There’s also a wide variety of materials to choose from: fiber cement, vinyl, engineered wood, aluminum or cedar to name a few.
Siding Panels are usually the choice for a contemporary polished look. The panels can be either smooth or with a textured finish. The most popular choices of material for panels are fibre cement, engineered wood and metal with profiles like Board and Batten, Easy Trim Reveal and Open Joint Cladding.
Siding Shingles are most commonly used to accentuate certain walls or to give the entire house that cozy look. The most widely used material for shingles for many years has been cedar, but these days, fibre cement and engineered wood shingles are gaining popularity amongst the homeowners. They can be manufactured from vinyl or aluminum as well.
How Much Does the Siding Cost?
Here we show you the approximate price calculation:
- If you choose vinyl siding that costs around $9 – 10 per sq ft, for the whole house which is 2000 sq ft, you might end up paying $18,000 – $20,000. Vinyl siding is the easiest product to work with, which significantly lowers its installation costs.
- James Hardie siding will cost around $12 – $14 per sq ft, so for the same house, you will pay approximately $24,000 – $28,000.
- Cedar siding will be the most expensive option among the 3 mentioned above. Its price is $14 – $17 per sq ft, so the final price will be around $28,000 – $34,000 including the additional cost for painting.

Here is the Step-by-Step Process
Step 1. Old Siding Removal
Most siding projects start with the removal of old siding. This process usually lasts between 2 to 7 days. When removing old siding from the walls, our crews work carefully pulling all the nails properly in order not to damage the sheathing underneath.
In some cases, new siding can be installed on the top of existing one given it is in a good condition and all the necessary repairs have been completed. Our experienced Siding Estimators will advise you on the best solution that suits your house.
Step 2. Sheathing Inspection and Repair
Sheathing inspection is always performed after the old siding had been removed in order to check for any rot or damage. In the rare case that repairs are required, it usually doesn’t cost more than $3 to $4 per sq ft.
That includes the cost of the materials and the labour for a repair. In our experience, most homes do not require sheathing repairs.
Step 3. Preparation of the Wall for Siding
After sheathing has been carefully inspected, we proceed with the installation of the building paper. We recommend installing strapping with certain materials to prolong the lifespan of your siding by at least 5-10 years.
Installation of the strapping is a highly recommended option. It protects your home from any rain damage creating an airflow between the wall and the siding. You can also choose to install the exterior insulation to keep your house warm in those cold winter days and save money on energy bills.
Step 4. Siding Installation and Touch-up Work
This step, on average, takes between 7 to 10 days. The timeframe depends on the type of siding installed and design preferences. Besides siding, we also install flashings to keep the water away, bug screens to protect the house from insects, dryer vents and light fixture boxes.
We finish up with applying touch up paint on nail heads to match the siding colour and caulking between the siding boards. Allow for a couple more days for the installation of trim boards around windows and doors, detailing of the corners, soffit installation or any other additional elements.
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 remove any leftover materials and the recycling bin.
Our Project Manager will inspect the finished project to check 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.
