Cedar Siding in Vancouver

Do not know which panels to choose for decorating the facade of the house? Is natural stone and brick too expensive? When choosing finishing materials, it is necessary to read many different factors, such as external beauty, durability, practicality, and cost of panels for arranging the facade.

In this regard, many of our clients prefer natural materials. If we talk about presentability, then cedar siding is considered the best option for you!

Main Advantages of Cedar Siding

It is made from small pieces of cedar, which are mounted on the outer panel of the siding. Cedar siding will provide the house with a beautiful appearance, but at the same time, it is notable for its reasonable cost ($10 – $20 per ft²) and unpretentiousness in care. Besides:

  • It differs in esthetic appeal and a pleasant aroma;
  • Installing cedar siding provides a high level of insulation, helps to maintain climate control inside the building;
  • Cedar siding absorbs sound and reliably protects the house from external and extraneous noise;
  • It shows the ability to withstand temperatures up to -50 degrees while maintaining an integrated structure;
  • It is a completely environmentally friendly material.
  • Provided that the panels are timely treated with sealant (once every two years), they exhibit excellent resistance to all types of insects and rotting processes;
  • Cedarwood does not crack. It releases beneficial volatility and is useful for people with pulmonary problems;
  • Thanks to the variety of structures and warm shades (red oak or white oak), it looks spectacular.

This type of wood siding can regulate the level of humidity – this is a fabulous advantage for arranging not only the external facade of the building but also allows you to finish the walls indoors.

There is no need to use any material for waterproofing. So, cedar siding is a great option to warm and decorate any house not only in Vancouver but throughout Canada, protecting it from various atmospheric influences and temperature extremes.

Types and Colour Varieties

Those who prefer cedar siding have an immense selection. They can choose painted or unpainted panels. We can offer you many styles of cedar siding, unlike other companies, namely:

  • Bevel;
  • Log;
  • Board & Batten;
  • Clapboard;
  • Shiplap;
  • Wavy bevel;
  • Tongue & Groove;
  • Pattern shingles;
  • Round edge shingle;
  • Shakes;
  • Staggered shingle;
  • Straight edge shingles.

We offer panels with a thickness of 1 inch, while the width of cedar siding can be: 6 in, 8 in, 10 in, or 12 inches. The presence or absence of spots and knots in the field of wood grain allows us to classify cedar siding as follows: class A, class AB, class B, class C, STK.

Our company can offer its customers vertical or horizontal siding in Vancouver. From mechanical indicators, both types have equivalent qualities, since a change in the direction of installation of the panels does not change the size of the entire project.

The owners of the houses are also pleased with the fact that cedar siding has many different shades that allow you to design buildings in different styles. The most attractive is the Canadian cedar, which is also known as red. In reality, it is golden honey. But this shade also looks very good.

Cedar Siding Installation

If you think about installing siding yourself, please remember that it will require a thorough study of the installation instructions (possibly with the search and subsequent viewing of several instructional videos), a lot of time, a set of particular tools, and patience.

Besides, you need to know the features of the decoration of a particular type of cedar siding. Even one small error during operation can cost you not only a brilliant result but also invested money.

Turning to our company, you can save time and money! Before carrying out wall cladding, specialists can independently evaluate the initial parameters of the building and choose the most suitable products. Our pricing for cedar siding starts from $11.00 per sq. ft.

  2. Saving your time. Well-coordinated work and the skill of the professionals honed over the years will provide effectiveness. It’s better not to experiment with your housing and entrust installation or repair works to knowledgeable people;
  3. Great specialization. Construction professionals will not only quickly and efficiently install the siding. They will also help you to choose the finishing material, taking into account all your wishes, allocated budget, and structural features.

We were not mistaken about our choice

Oleg was able to come out and give us a great estimate for siding replacement at my home. He was patient with us getting approval from our HOA and receiving other quotes. Ultimately we chose Ideal Siding because they were professional, accessible for questions, very knowledgeable and they are insured. We were not mistaken about our choice.

He told me what day they would be here, and his people did an amazing job. Honestly, I wouldn’t have even known they were here if I didn’t see the downspouts. There was no mess or debris. They made sure my gate was shut and secure. There was a small adjustment that we needed on one of the downspouts, and Oleg sent the crew that day and took care of it. We are very happy with the job they did. My neighbours are now interested in quotes, as well as my employer. I highly recommend these guys!

Fast estimate, courteous, and responsive

Guys moved my vinyl siding installation up because of a cancellation and got the job done fast. No cleanup for me afterwards because they cleaned up after themselves. Very friendly service. My floating house looks like new again!

Clemence M., Vancouver

Highly recommended! You won’t regret

A long time of history with work being done by this company at my home. Quotes were always in writing; questions answered professionally and tentative time line for when the work would start and be completed provided. I always had rapid responses from the sales team. No derogatory comments as I’ve been totally satisfied with the work performed and interactions with the staff.
