Types of Siding
When it comes time to choose siding for your home, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of materials, colors and textures we offer. Century Roofing and Siding installs quality siding from Royal Building Products. Here are some benefits of the most popular siding materials installed on today’s homes.
For over 30 years, Royal has been manufacturing vinyl siding that has grown in popularity due to its durability, versatility and ease of maintenance. With four different lines of vinyl siding from Royal, you can create a truly customized look for your home.
The different profiles available include traditional lap, Dutch lap, vertical, shakes and shingles, all of which have a wind rating of at least 225kph. Depending on which line you choose, there are up to 31 different colours for your new impact-resistant vinyl siding. Choose Haven®, an insulated vinyl siding, and lower your utility bills. For many homeowners, the biggest advantage of vinyl siding is that it never needs paint! The only maintenance it needs to look its best is an occasional wash with a garden hose.
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement siding is composed of a mixture of cement, sand and wood fiber that is cured with pressurized steam to increase its strength and dimensional stability. It can be molded to look like genuine wood planks, yet is completely resistant to rot, fire, wind and insects. Because fiber cement does not expand and contract like wood, it holds paint very well. Most fiber cement comes primed and ready to finish and holds its color for 15 years. Some lines are available with factory-finished paint backed by a warranty.
Celect® cellular composite siding from Royal is perhaps the most durable, weather-resistant and energy-efficient siding available. Its patented interlocking joints create a seamless appearance on your home. It never buckles or cracks. You can choose from four styles including two different size clapboards, board-and-batten and shake in 15 different colors. With its 25-year coating warranty, this siding is virtually maintenance free – no scraping or painting necessary.
Once the leader in replacement siding, siding contractors nationwide report that aluminum has rapidly lost ground to more modern materials. Though it can dent and fade, aluminum will not crack or rot, making it ideal for wet climates. Aluminum siding is low-maintenance, fireproof and comes in a variety of styles and colors.
Wood is a traditional siding material, either in shake or clapboard form. Because wood siding requires frequent maintenance, particularly in regions with extremes of moisture and temperature, it is less popular than other low-maintenance siding materials.
