Superior Siding Calgary – Imagine a New Exterior
Are you thinking about updating your siding? Are you tired of the same drab look? Or has your current siding been damaged by hail or wind?
Nothing has such a dramatic effect on the overall exterior appearance of your house or business as the siding. Covering a large portion of your home and clearly visible from the street, it also impacts your home’s curb appeal and value.
Coming home to a beautifully sided house improves your satisfaction too, but siding does more than just make your building more attractive. Just like the roof, it is part of the envelope that protects your home’s structure from damage due to the elements. With Calgary’s dramatically changing weather, your property needs protection from sun, chinook winds with gusts up to 128 km, rain, hailstorms, and heavy snow.
Correctly installed siding can also provide insulation and protection from heat and cold, as well as pests and general humidity. The bonus of this protection is increased energy efficiency; homeowners are sometimes pleasantly surprised by reduced utility bills after replacing their old siding.

Siding Q & A:
Q: With so many options, how do I choose the right siding for my home?
A: Cost, appearance, performance, and ongoing maintenance are all things to consider when you are making this decision. Siding is priced by the square foot or metre, and that price varies. For appearance and performance, each kind of siding has its own advantages.
Aluminum and vinyl are some of the cheaper, more durable options. They are available in a wide selection of colour and texture choices and require very little maintenance other than an occasional power wash. Other metal products are also available, but since aluminum does not rust, it is extremely long-lasting and easy to maintain. For vinyl, even if damage does occur, it is usually easier to repair than other products.
Wood siding is sometimes preferred for its great appearance and resistance to wind and the hail that can pull or dent other materials, but it does require more maintenance and repainting or resealing every few years to protect it from pests and water damage. You should have siding inspected annually since not all damage is visible on the surface. Cedar is more resistant to rot than most wood, but it still requires re-staining and maintenance, although its warmth and beauty make it a popular choice in spite of the work involved.
Hardie Board siding, a high-quality fibre cement product, is the best of all worlds option for both its combination of appearance and durability. It provides the realistic appearance of wood but without the high maintenance. And it is resistant to moisture and stands up to wind and hail, making it a good choice for the Calgary area. It is also fire resistant. However, the upfront cost can be higher than other choices.
When we prepare your estimate, we can review your options and what might work on your building and be best for budgeting both your financial investment and your time commitment for maintenance.
Q: Can you repair minor damage, and will you work with my insurance company?
A: Superior does provide repair services as well as a complete replacement. When we provide your free estimate, we can let you know which action to take, whether it is more cost-effective to make repairs or start over with new siding. And as a Haag Certified Inspector, we provide added credibility and trust to your insurance company in our damage and repair estimates.
Q: What preparation and work go into the process of siding my building? What should I expect?
A: The preparation process can vary depending on your home’s structure, the type of existing siding and what is replacing it. In most cases, we remove the old siding, which can take up the first day of the job. If there has been damage from moisture or pests to the membrane or other internal structure, then we will make those repairs. Once the siding work has been completed, we will do immediate cleanup for both aesthetic and safety reasons. Our contractors work as quickly as possible, while also maintaining standards of safety and excellence in quality.
