Siding Styles We Offer
Siding comes in an endless array of materials, styles, and looks. However, not every kind of siding works well with the Manitoba climate or the type of home typically found in Winnipeg. Here are a few siding options that work very well in this area.
Siding plank is one of the most popular options for good reason. It is extremely versatile and affordable. Choose from a number all materials including aluminum, fiber cement, cedar, and vinyl. Materials like fiber cement and vinyl hold up extremely well to the hot, humid Winnipeg summers.
Pick from an endless array of colours and have the siding installed vertically or horizontally depending on the style of your home. Horizontal siding plank in a colour that blends with the landscape is very popular on the ranch-style homes typical of Winnipeg.
Have a more modern house? Siding panels may be right for you. They offer a polished look and clean, stylish lines. Winnipeg is a metropolitan hub and many of the homes in this area are architectural masterpieces with an almost futuristic look.
Siding panels are perfect for this kind of home. Panels are cut on-site for a perfectly custom fit that will look amazing on your house. You can choose a natural wood effect or smooth modern panels.
Shingles and Shakes
Shingles and shakes are excellent for classic homes where a refined and charming look is desired. They are perfect for a sweet country cottage or an elegant victorian design.
Shingles come in many different materials including vinyl, fiber cement, and cedar. Fiber cement is likely the best option for Winnipeg’s climate, but you may be amazed by how much it can look like natural wood.
How Much Does Siding Cost?
How much it will cost to renovate your home with new siding is highly variable depending on a number of features. Not surprisingly, the size of your home and the material that siding is made of have an important effect on the cost.
The price may also vary depending on how old the current siding is and whether it is in disrepair. If the old siding has started to degrade, the materials underneath it may have been damaged. If the siding has degraded significantly, even the structural integrity of the house may have been compromised.
In this case, your cost will include not only the price of new siding but also the cost of repairing the damage that has been done. If you know that your siding is getting older or you can see signs of damage, it is essential that you replace your siding as soon as possible.
We are happy to assess your current siding and give you a price depending on what siding you want to install, the size of your house, and the current state of your siding. However, the damage is not always apparent until the current siding is removed.
- Vinyl siding is one of the most affordable as well as durable options, and a great choice if you’re on a budget. It generally costs between $7 and $8 per sq ft. For a typical house, about 2,000 square feet of siding will be required, resulting in a cost of between $14,000 and $16,000.
- Fiber cement is another great option because it is so durable and resistant to the challenging Manitoba climate. You need a very high-quality contractor to install this material which can be somewhat difficult to work with. Fiber cement costs a bit more than vinyl at between $11 and $12.5 per sq ft, but it will also last for a very long time. For the same 2,000 square feet of siding, expect to pay between $22,000 and $25,000.
- Cedar siding is highly versatile when it comes to siding profiles, and many custom options are available. The cost to install new cedar siding on 2,000 square feet house would be $26,000 plus the cost of optional details like fascia boards and trims.
Here are some common siding materials as well as their cost per square foot to help you calculate what the cost would be for installing siding on your property:
|Material||Price per sq ft*|
|James Hardie (Fiber Cement)||Starts at $11.00|

Our Work Process
The first step of having new siding installed is choosing what you want. Even if you have a general idea of how you want your finished home to look, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer variety of options available. You will need to choose a type of siding, material, texture, and colour. We’ll help you make these decisions using our customized mock-up of your home with the siding you are considering.
Next, our project managers will guide you through the process of installing siding every step of the way so that you’ll understand exactly what’s taking place and have total confidence in the process. We know that time is often of the essence when siding is being installed, especially if you are replacing siding that has been damaged or that’s old enough that the material underneath the siding may be compromised.
Therefore, we’ll get started immediately and work as quickly as possible. We work with all major suppliers of siding materials so there won’t be any delays in beginning your project. Below is the typical step-by-step process.
With your siding installed and the work area cleaned up, one of our experienced project managers will meet with you and take the time to inspect the job along with you. At this time, you can ask any questions you may have and ensure that your mind is completely at rest about the job that has been done. The project manager will also advise you about how to take care of your new siding and clarify all of the details of the warranties on the materials and workmanship.
