Why Install New Siding?

Whether you’re looking for a new and noticeable change to the exterior of your home or want to replace your existing siding to repair damage, there are several reasons to install new siding.

  • Siding makes for an aesthetically pleasing exterior, and The Home Depot offers a variety of materials and styles to choose from, including rustic, modern, or traditional designs.
  • Siding is more than just decorative. Loose or cracked siding can lead to structural damage, water leaks, and can be costly if not replaced or maintained.
  • Siding shields against Canada’s harsh weather conditions, and is an integral part of your home’s exterior, allowing you to maintain a comfortable living space.
  • Installing new siding doesn’t need to be a comprehensive project. You may choose to add accent siding to only a portion of your home’s exterior to create a complimentary or updated look.

10 Signs You May Need New Siding:

  1. You don’t like the aesthetics or curb appeal of your home.
  2. You’re looking to increase your home’s resale value.

  7. Dry rot, insect damage and/or fungus & mould on the surface of siding.
  8. Uneven boards and seam separation in siding.
  9. Deterioration and aging of siding.
  10. The siding has been exposed to prolonged weather conditions.

Types of Siding Materials

Wood siding.

Wood Siding

Wood siding is a popular choice and is available in a variety of styles from shingles to panels. Wood siding is easy to work with as its lightweight texture makes it easy to nail, saw, trim or cut. It is also a popular choice because it can be painted or stained in any colour. Depending on where you live, wood siding can be made available in cedar, pine or other such species.

Wood siding is only available through custom orders in-store.

Fibre cement siding.

Fibre Cement Siding

Fibre cement siding offers a blend of cement, sand and cellulose. It is an affordable and low-maintenance option that can be compared to wood. Its unique technology has been tested to withstand hurricane force winds and is engineered to stand up to harsh weather conditions, making it a popular siding option for many. It reduces moisture intrusion and resists damage from wet or freezing conditions. Fibre cement siding is also a versatile material, and does not rot, decay or crack, and is impervious to wood-boring insects.

Fibre cement siding is only available through custom orders in-store.
