Whether you’re looking to replace a part of the siding or considering a full transformation, this type of work should always be completed by home renovation experts. Exterior siding (also known as exterior cladding) serves to protect the structure and helps with insulation and weatherproofing. If it gets damaged, it won’t be able to fill its duties, which can lead to serious consequences.

5 things to know about exterior siding
- Vinyl siding is one of the most popular options due to the fact that it is affordable and resistant to shocks and scratches. However, it has a shorter lifespan than other types of materials and is sensitive to bad weather and sun rays, which can cause discolouration.
- Fibrocement panels are known for their nice appearance. They are easy to maintain and offer a good level of resistance against bad weather. However, certain organisations such as the Quebec Order of Architects do not recommend this material as there have been many cases of discolouration and fissuring.
- Wood siding adds a lot of warmth and charm to a home. However it requires quite a bit of maintenance. Among other things, a linseed-oil treatment must be applied every five years (if not more). Also, if you would like to stain the wood, you will have to apply a new coat of product on a regular basis.
- Brick is a traditional exterior siding material which is not about to go out of style. Although it is one of the most expensive options, it has the advantage of being very long-lasting (up to 75 years)
- Oftentimes, it is better to choose a product that is slightly more expensive but that has a longer lifespan. This will help you save money in the long run, as you won’t have to reinvest more money quickly for a new siding.
