Engineered Wood Siding in Vancouver

When choosing among the most affordable cladding options in Vancouver, we cannot overlook engineered wood siding with an appealing eco-friendly feature attached to it. If you are truly concerned about deforestation or not that thrilled with cedar price tags, but still want to enjoy the authentic feel of timber in your exterior projects, this type of cladding products is really worth considering.

Engineered wood siding installation from the best company in Vancouver
Engineered wood siding products all claim to have a technological edge over their real-wood counterparts. These products are engineered to eliminate flaws, resist deterioration, and be cost-effective to install and maintain

Unlike the traditional option, engineered wood siding is not made of lumber but manufactured from residual wood pieces cemented together by gluing and compressing. As a result, we get a board that looks like solid lumber but is actually composite material. This manufacturing method allows the smart utilization of wood wastages while reducing environmental effects and improving the sustainable use of natural resources.

As for the in-use performance of engineered wood, these products are even denser, more dimensionally stable and water-resistant when compared with the traditional option due to adhesives, waxes, and coatings used in the manufacturing process. They are also usually pre-primed or pre-finished to cut costs and time expenditures on post-installation processing.

Why Opt for Engineered Wood?

Engineered wood siding has the following advantages:

  1. As a rule, engineered wood boards cost half the price of natural cedar, not to mention savings on maintenance.
  2. Engineered wood siding installation is also cheaper thanks to the lower weight of the material and interlock systems provided by many companies.
  3. This cladding is available in many styles, including horizontal and vertical panels, shakes and lap siding, smooth and textured finishes along with colours galore.
  4. The siding delivers a wooden feel much better than other popular cladding options just mimicking the texture of timber.
  5. With various compounds added to its structure, engineered wood siding panels are securely protected from weather effects, mould, decay, and insects.
  6. The material lacks imperfections of lumber like a blue stain, pockets, knots, and other defects while being not inclined to warping and twisting.

Besides, the durability of engineered wood siding is backed by impressive warranties of up to 30 years.

What to Look for in Engineered Wood Siding?

Not all engineered wood boards are created equal, so make sure to pay attention to:

  • Chemical compounds used in manufacturing – some of them can be toxic.
  • Waterproof processing – different manufacturers employ different methods, and the results range from pitiful to outstanding.
  • Accessories for installation and fastener systems – they speed up and cheapen the process while contributing to aesthetics.
  • Dimensions – longer boards may allow for faster and more seamless installation.
  • Finish – pre-painted engineered wood often requires less maintenance.

There are many brands on the market but we can consult you for free on what to choose for your exact project.

The service was quick, fast and precise

We had siding replaced on the whole house. They showed up when they said and finished on schedule. The work was great. Our house is just beautiful and looks like new.

Bradon G., Vancouver

Nice to know there are contractors you can trust

From the very beginning, the experience was great. I can say that this is a company interested in doing quality work. Quote very clear, no surprises. Quality is above average. Oleg, the Nanaimo project manager, is a great listener. They completed the project when they said they would. Always returned my calls when I had a question. Pricing above fair. I was also suggested options that were less expensive.

Ideal Siding has given excellent service

The sales were a bit of a run around as another customer stated but… If you can wait, the install work is excellent! Guys installed our siding and trimmed our windows, their work is fantastic! I believe they strive for excellent customer service, especially on the job site. There is a reason they are backlogged for months and we would use them again!

Randa V., Burnaby

Ideal Sliding was awesome to work with!

They took care of us and did so much more than the siding. They repaired bad spots, replaced exterior lights and doors. They were there when they said they would be and did good quality work!
