Experts will use moisture levels will determine what types of material will best protect your home from condensation and other water-based damages.
Some popular materials include vinyl, fiber cement, and aluminum. Siding can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally and can come in all different textures, sizes, and colors.
Vinyl for house siding was first introduced in the 1950s and has since become Ottawa Siding Contractor’s number one choice in siding due to its cost-effectiveness, long-lasting durability, and widespread appeal with many different choices in color and style.

This material dates back to the early 1900s, where fiber cement siding used to contain asbestos to add strength and stability. However, as research and documentation regarding the health risks related to asbestos became widespread, it was used less and less. It was not until the 1980s that building materials introduced a new, cellulose reinforced fiber cement product to be used instead. Today, asbestos is not used in buildings, having been completely replaced with the safer version.
There are typically two main reasons why people choose fiber cement over the other options. One of the most popular reasons is because it has an eye-catching curb appeal that looks very realistic. Additionally, many choose this option because when it is installed correctly by Ottawa Roofers, it does an excellent job of keeping out moisture, and can even last for more than fifty years.
