Siding is more than just a protective layer on the outside of your home. It’s also the first thing people see when they visit. With so many siding styles and types of siding materials to choose from, you can really make a statement with siding.
Choosing siding might seem daunting at first. There’s vinyl, aluminum, and even brickwork masonry to choose from. At Weaver Exterior Remodeling, we carry the best quality siding supplies because we believe our customers deserve the best.
Here we’ll talk about how you can customize your exterior to make a visual impact, the benefits of siding, and which material is best.
Types Of Siding
There are many types of siding available in Canada. At Weaver Exterior Remodeling, we specialize in:
Aluminum siding is durable, weather-resistant, and a great insulator. Choose from vertical or horizontal styles and a wide range of colours.
New aluminum siding adds a pop of shine and colour to any home. Match your new siding to your stone walkway, your garden hedges, or your garage. Aluminum siding can be accented with several finishes and trim options.
Vinyl is a popular choice in Southern Ontario. It’s designed with all-weather technology to prevent wear during the winter or fade during the summer. This technology also prevents warping and distorting.
Vinyl Siding can be made to match doors or window frames. You can also choose the style of siding, such as:
- Lap siding panels
- Batten siding
- Cedar style siding
Forget the boring vinyl siding your parents used. Today’s siding is made with creative design in mind. Set yourself apart from every other house on the block by choosing the finish, style, and colour of your vinyl.
Brickwork adds value and texture to your home, offering a traditional aesthetic. Weaver has many brickwork options, ranging in colour from light to dark. These products are highly durable and completely uniform.
Brick facades can be matched to chimneys and other masonry features in your home. For a pop of colour, many Ontario homeowners opt for an accent piece, bricking only the front of the home for example, or the exterior entryway.
Customizing Your Siding
If you’re looking for siding ideas, you’re in the right place. Weaver Exterior Remodeling works closely with clients to develop a siding plan that suits your taste and style. Make a statement with siding by customizing your home with colours and textures that stand out from your neighbours. Vinyl and aluminum siding comes in a variety of colours, including:
- Azure Blue
- Cabot Brown
- Cabot Blue
- Heritage Grey
- Ivy Green
- Colonial Red
- Cobalt Red
As you customize your exterior, think about adding additional touches to complement your new siding. A new entry door can be a showstopper, especially if you choose a contrasting colour for your siding. You can also add a custom window to further improve the overall aesthetic of your home.
Benefits Of New Siding
Adding new siding to your home is an investment, but one well worth the cost. There are plenty of advantages to remodeling your home exterior with new vinyl or aluminum siding, including:
- Improved resale value: The value of your home improves significantly when you add new siding. According to Remodeling Magazine, new vinyl siding could increase your resale value by 67.2%.
- Longevity: Changing out old siding for new gives your home exterior an added boost of 20 to 40 years. That’s quite a reprieve from worrying about leaks or lost siding panels on windy days.
- Water-resistance: It isn’t just rain that Ontario homeowners should consider while choosing siding. Those with lakefront properties should also think about ongoing moisture and dampness. Both vinyl and aluminum are solid choices in this area. Water beads up and rolls off, with no risk of mold, mildew, or rot.
- Customization: Gone are the days of subdued siding styles and cookie-cutter houses. Modern vinyl and aluminum siding options open the doors to originality and self-expression. Grab some inspiration from your favourite home décor magazine and design your exterior remodel in a way that fits your taste. The options are endless.
Making a statement isn’t always about aesthetics alone. Over time siding gets worn out. Older materials might even fade or warp. Fresh new siding can make a big difference to the vibe your house gives on your block. Be the home people stop and stare at by turning your exterior remodel into a statement piece.
Which Is Best: Aluminum Siding Vs. Vinyl Siding
Both aluminum and vinyl siding have their benefits. While recent sales indicate a rise in popularity of vinyl siding, aluminum has many benefits also. As you decide which type of siding is right for you, think about:
- Location of your home
- Available styles
Vinyl siding has a slight lead in longevity. It tends to last longer than aluminum siding, which is nice if you’re not looking to remodel again anytime soon. This is because vinyl doesn’t dent or scratch as easily in hail or windstorms. Aluminum siding offers a slight advantage in the area of home insulation, however.
In the end, it comes down to personal taste and preference. At Weaver Exterior Remodeling, we know both products inside and out. Our team of experienced professionals can walk you through the pros and cons of each and help you decide which is right for your home.
