Replacing your siding will completely transform your home, improve its resale value and protect the structure for years to come. With so many different options for siding materials, textures and colours, your options are virtually endless. Here is a short guide on choosing the perfect Calgary siding for your next renovation.
There are many different siding materials you can choose for your exterior renovation. Traditional stucco is still common, but many homeowners are opting for new materials like stone siding, Longboard siding, kayu batu wood siding or modern options like James Hardie siding, Royal Celect or Gentek Sequoia Select.
James Hardie HZ5 fiber cement siding is specially engineered for colder climates like Calgary and will resist shrinking, cracking and freezing. Fiber cement siding has the natural appearance of wood, in a durable, modern, low maintenance, weather resistant material. Installed on millions of homes, James Hardie siding is one of the most popular siding materials.
James Hardie lap siding (horizontal panels) comes in three main styles: Smooth, Select Cedarmill and Beaded Cedarmill. As with all the siding we install at Tony William, there are many colour options for each style.
HardiePanel Vertical Siding siding is available in 4 main textures: Select Cedarmill, Smooth, Stucco and Sierra 8.
HardieShingle siding offers the look and warmth of cedar shingles with long lasting durability and weather resistance. Choose from Staggered or Straight Edge panels.
Celect composite siding from Royal Building Products has the look of natural wood with interlocking joints that minimize seams and keep moisture out. Celect siding has great insulation qualities to keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer. Try out the Homeplay Siding Selector Tool by Royal to experiment with different siding and colour options.
Sequoia Select vinyl siding from Gentek is a heavy duty thickness for superior rigidity. The 3/4 inch lap height adds a deeper dimension for a more wood-like appearance.
Once you have settled on your preferred siding material and style, you can start to play around with colour. All siding manufacturer's offer a wide variety of colour choices. A great colour combination can drastically improve curb appeal and can also help increase your home's market value. It's common to select around three colours for a traditional-style home - one leading colour for the body and two secondary options for the trim and accents. There are many techniques for choosing colour combinations. Chose a lighter main colour with darker trim or vice versa, to create contrast. Choose complementary colours for more harmony or opt for monochromatic design choices. Play around with colour combinations with this Royal Building Products Colour Selector tool.
If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind combination to make your home really stand out, then consider adding siding accents to your design. Choose a base siding material, then add stone siding, Longboard, Kayu Batu hardwood, or stucco accents to get one-of-a-kind stunning design. With different accent materials, you have more freedom to play around with colours and textures to make your home stand out.
