Types Of Siding

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is a plastic exterior cladding for a house, used for decoration and weatherproofing. It is an engineered product that is the most common cladding installed for residential construction in North America. Vinyl siding is a prefinished product that can complement a wide variety of architectural styles. They come in a wide range of colours designed to withstand extreme elements of nature

Wood Siding

Wood is a moderately renewable resource and is biodegradable. However, most paints and stains used to treat wood are not environmentally friendly and can be toxic. Wood siding can provide some minor insulation and structural properties as compared to thinner cladding materials. Wood siding is very versatile in style and can be used on a wide variety of homes in any color palette desired. The key to siding durability lies in the factory finishing process, where the wood is thoroughly dried and then stained before leaving for the job site. Wood Siding’s exceptional durability will help you maintain the value of your wood investment for many years to come

Cement Fibre Siding

Fibre cement cladding is a very heavy product and requires two people to carry the uncut sheets. Thin fibre cement cladding is fragile before installation and must be handled carefully; it is prone to chipping and breakage if improperly handled. Thermal resistance and sound transmission vary greatly between fiber cement products. Fiber cement sheet products rate poorly in thermal resistance and sound transmission and separate wall insulation is highly recommended. Generally the thicker and denser the product, the better resistance it will have to temperature and sound transmission.

Aluminum Siding

Aluminum siding is an inexpensive siding selection that is stress-free to clean and maintain. It is also a very durable product that does not scratch or dent easily. Aluminum siding is ideal for residential homes in areas with high levels of rain or moisture. The hard coating diminishes the formation and degradation of rust and corrosion within the product. Many advantages of aluminum siding include its resistance to fire, bugs, rot and mold. The product is 100% recyclable and provides a wide range selection of colours to choose from.
