We Find an Ideal Solution for You

With its unique blend of nature, culture, and stunning architecture, it’s no surprise that Ottawa has earned a reputation as Canada’s most beautiful city. However, local homeowners face weather challenges such as harsh winters and humid summers, which can damage their homes.

Siding is an essential protective shield against the elements and contributes to your house’s energy efficiency and overall comfort. And, of course, beautiful siding enhances curb appeal, potentially increasing the value of your property.

Ideal Siding Ottawa's team at work
By installing new siding, you will not only be protecting the structure, but you will also be increasing its value by boosting your home’s curb appeal

Ideal Siding® is an authorized dealer for Canada’s most trusted siding brands. We offer a comprehensive range of siding products to fit your personal style, individual needs, and budget.

With our skilled team at your service, the selection process is easy, ensuring you get the best value and respecting your budget. We always take your priorities into account when we recommend siding materials that are resilient, aesthetically appealing, and budget-friendly. At Ideal Siding®, we are here for you, whether to replace the entire siding or do touch-up and minor repairs.

Variety of Siding Materials and Styles

Because there are so many siding designs, styles, materials, and colours to choose from, it can be challenging to decide which ones are right for your home. We make it easy! Our experts will walk you through the many options to meet your style, taste, and budget. You can witness the magical transformation of your choice as our complimentary mockup service shows you the final look.

Because of Ottawa’s humid, snowy climate and the typical architectural styles typical in Ontario, we recommend using one of these six types of siding for your home. Choose whichever is the best match for your home and neighbourhood and shield your home from those severe winter storms.

  • James Hardie®. This is a mixture of cement, sand, and cellulose fibres. We believe James Hardie® siding is one of the best brands of fibre cement siding on the market today, representing outstanding value for money
  • Vinyl siding. Made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, vinyl has existed for over 70 years. It is combined with other ingredients for excellent colour, opacity, gloss, impact resistance, flexibility, and durability. Economical, weather-resistant, and low-maintenance, vinyl is highly popular throughout Canada.
  • Cedar siding. Perhaps you prefer a natural product? Cedar siding is prized for its durability, moisture resistance, and charming traditional appearance. It is sourced from red or white cedar, both native to North America. Choose a transparent stain for a traditional, somewhat rustic look, or change it up with one of a wide range of colours. Cedar siding is easy to customise, replace, and maintain, which makes it a popular choice for many Ottawa homeowners.
  • Aluminum siding. Aluminium is another popular choice in Ottawa due to its high performance, low cost, and longevity. It’s made from aluminium coil stock chemically coated to protect the metal and then painted for additional protection. Aluminum’s famous resistance to rust and corrosion gives it an advantage in Ottawa’s high humidity, ensuring decades of almost maintenance-free protection and creating a striking modern look for properties of all types.
  • Everlast® composite siding. Want the look of natural real wood siding without the hassle of maintenance or the extra cost? This is the choice for you! Made from thin strips of leftover wood pressed and bonded with a resin, Everlast® is strong and durable. It resembles natural wood siding but is less expensive and easier to maintain.
  • LP® Smartside® siding. Another well-known brand of composite wood siding, LP® Smartside®, uses wood strand technology to offer superior protection against all weather conditions. It’s a great choice if you like a classic wood aesthetic without the hassle of maintenance, as it offers durability, versatility, and long-lasting curb appeal.

Once you decide which type of siding material will offer the best protection for your home, the next step is choosing the right style, which will determine its final look and curb appeal.

At Ideal Siding® Ottawa, we carry siding options for every taste. With the lifelike renditions of our complimentary mockup service, we can help you pick one that is perfect for your home’s look, personal preference, and budget.

Lap Siding

It is one of the most popular choices in Ottawa as it creates a cozy yet classic, inviting look. However, there’s nothing dull or predictable about this style. You will have plenty of scope to give your home a personal touch because lap siding comes in various designs, including cottage, Dutch lap, nickel, or shiplap (where the boards overlap horizontally).

Shingles and Shakes

Shingles and shakes are often chosen because the rough surfaces create distinctive shadow lines, which add contrast and depth to your home’s exterior. Both are ideal for creating a warm rustic look and can be stained according to your color preferences.

Board and Batten

Board and batten siding features alternating wide boards and narrow wooden ‘battens.’ Whether for a traditional or modern aesthetic, this type of siding creates a clean, multi-dimensional appearance. It is often chosen for high or gable walls because of its elongating effect.

How Much Does the Siding Cost in Ottawa?

If you’re wondering how much you should budget to install siding on your home, here are some ballpark figures to give you an idea of how the different square-foot prices compare:

  1. Vinyl Siding: is almost always the most affordable option due to its low material cost and ease of installation. Vinyl will protect your home for decades, is virtually maintenance-free, and is available in various colors. It usually costs between $9 – $11 per sq. ft. The approximate cost of a typical 2000 sq. ft. house, which is just about the average size in Ottawa, would be $18,000-$22,000.
  2. James Hardie® (Fiber Cement) Siding: this trusted brand is known for its durability and resistance to rot and insects. The price is between $12 and $15 per sq. ft., bringing the total amount for the same-sized house to around $24,000 to $30,000.
  3. Cedar Siding: this premium natural material is admired for its authentic rustic look. Be prepared to pay a bit more and expect it to require more maintenance than other types of siding. Siding a 2000 sq. ft. house with cedar will run you about $18 per sq. ft., or $36,000.

To guide you through the range of materials you could choose for your siding renovation, take a look at this table:

Material Price per sq ft*
James Hardie® (Fiber Cement) Starts at $12.00
Vinyl Siding Starts at $9.25
Fraser Starts at $16.00
Maibec Starts at $16.00
Cedar Siding Starts at $17.50
Cape Cod (Finished Wood) Starts at $21.50
Longboard® Aluminum Siding Starts at $53.00
AL-13® Aluminum Cladding Starts at $50.00
LUX Steel Cladding Starts at $60.00
Cultured Stone Starts at $49.75
* Prices are guidelines only and can change based on the seasonality, availability of materials, and complexity of your project

We know how important it is to stick to a budget, so at Ideal Siding®, we strive to be as accurate as possible with our estimates.

Our policy of complete transparency makes your home siding project easier because our quotes include materials and labour. We provide you with everything you need to know to make an informed decision. There are no hidden ‘extras’ and no surprises.

However, keep in mind that costs can vary based on the material you choose, the design of your home, any additional repairs to the underlying structure, and optional elements such as trim and soffits.

Our Work Process

You’re in good hands with our team of experienced siding contractors. You can relax as we handle the entire project from start to finish. Once you’ve reviewed the complimentary mockup, we order the materials and are 100% satisfied with your choices. We get to work as soon as all these are delivered to your home!

Step 1
Old Siding Removal
First, we remove the old siding on your home without damaging the underlying sheathing. Leaving old siding on might compromise the performance of the new installation and spoil the appearance of your replacement siding. This step can take anywhere from two to seven days, depending on the type of siding that needs to be removed and the size of your home.
Step 2
Sheathing Inspection and Repair
Now the old siding has been removed, we'll inspect the underlying sheathing for any evidence of rot, mould, or other damage. If any repairs are needed, which fortunately doesn't happen often from our experience, you could be looking at a small additional cost.
Step 3
Preparation of the Wall for Siding
Before installing the siding, we'll protect your home by installing a rainscreen system consisting of building paper, flashings, and strapping/mesh. This crucial step safeguards your property against potential water damage. While the installation of strapping is not mandatory, we recommend it as it enhances airflow, increasing the lifespan of your siding.
Step 4
Siding Installation and Touch-up
Our skilled team will install your chosen siding, paying meticulous attention to every detail. From trim boards and soffits to insect screens and flashings, we'll ensure an immaculate finish. Any touch-up painting required will be completed to guarantee a polished appearance. This step typically takes between 7 and 10 days.
Step 5
Clean-up and Waste Removal
We take pride in leaving your property clean and pristine. Our team will handle the clean-up and proper disposal of all construction debris, adhering to the highest standards of the siding industry.

Upon completion of your project, our dedicated project manager will conduct a final inspection to ensure it meets our standards and you are 100% satisfied. We’ll review the project details with you, explain the material and workmanship warranties, and share valuable maintenance tips that will preserve the longevity and beauty of your new siding.

All thanks to mock-ups

Fantastic job on our Ottawa home! Our salesman, Fouad, was always just a call away, guiding us through our options from vinyl to Hardie board siding. We chose vinyl and are thrilled with the color choices, all thanks to mock-ups. Highly recommend Fouad for his efficiency, positivity, and reliability. Big thanks for the great work!
