There are multiple types of siding that is being used on residential home in Ottawa. Majority of homes are sided with vinyl siding.

Vinyl is cost effective and most builders prefer it due to cost, color and profile. D4.5 is the most common profile now a days an we are seeing D5 also in some newer homes. Aluminum siding is way to expensive for builders to use on newly constructed homes. We do see wood shakes on custom homes only.

Most of the wind damaged sidings are due to improper installation. Improper nailing patterns are the common cause. On Townhouses especially have the most amount of siding damages and problems. Due to fire code, siding is installed directly onto 1/2 inch drywall without strapping.

We offer residential roofing and siding repair services in Ottawa, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, Stittsville, Carp, Manotick, Greely, Orleans, Gloucester, Rockcliffe, Cumberland and Rockland Ontario.
