Vinyl siding is made from a plastic resin that’s melted and extruded into sheets. The sheets are then stamped to make them look like wood fibre or other designs. Additives are introduced to improve impact resistance and resist the fading effects of ultraviolet rays.
Completely maintenance free, vinyl siding allows you to enjoy your home without the hassle of painting.
Premium and Dark Colour Siding
Due to improvements in extruding and dying technology, vinyl siding is now available in dark colours and carries lifetime colour warranties. No longer limited to just light colours, you can punch up your exterior profile without the heavy cost!
To improve the overall efficiency and comfort of your home, consider pre-insulated siding. Far more cost effective than a two-part, clad-and-side process and fibre-based and composite sidings, pre-insulated siding is viable in a vast array of colours.

Engineered siding has a technological edge over wooden siding as they are fabricated to eliminate flaws, resist rotting, and for ease of maintenance.
Using particleboard material such as OSB to create a core, layers are laminated together to create a strong siding product. Engineered siding is also coated with special additives and treatments to prevent rotting and mildew.
An overlay is installed on the substrate that is embossed to look like various different wood grains. Warranties of up to 30 years provide peace of mind for the longevity of your siding products. Visit our manufacturer, LP® Corp., for more detailed information on engineered siding.

Fibre cement siding is composed of a mixture of cement, sand and wood fibres. Heavy and durable, this type of siding is fire resistant, impervious to rotting and insect infestation, and does not deteriorate due to ultraviolet rays.
Since fibre cement siding is pressed from concrete, many different designs are available – from vertical and horizontal siding to architectural details such as scallops, battens and other various trim materials.
Fibre cement siding can come raw (which needs to be painted) or prefinished from the manufacturer. Finishes are guaranteed for up to 15 years, and can realistically be expected to last much longer due to improved manufacturing and painting processes. The product itself can be warrantied for up to 50 years – which is a testament to its quality and durability.

Some of the most beautiful buildings in the world are fashioned out of natural stone: marble, slate and granite. Although beautiful and long-lasting, these materials are difficult to implement in home construction. Their massive weight requires complex support structures which are not usually available or practical in residential applications. Also, the great cost involved in mining and transporting these materials from their origins makes the price quite prohibitive.
Manufactured stone allows you to take advantage of lighter-weight materials such as cement and lighter stones such as pumice to give you the beauty of stone. From cobble and castle stones to limestone and river rock, hundreds of styles and colours are available to accent your home’s exterior.
