Every West Vancouver homeowner wants their house to have the best aesthetics and the best protection. While good roofing will help with protecting your property, quality siding is key. Siding not only protects your West Vancouver property, but it can also improve it with a fresh new look. Siding is one of the most important West Vancouver home renovation investments since new siding installation can add a lot of value as well as quality decking, cladding roofing, guttering and general exterior. Of course, as such, the process can be expensive. As it happens with every layer shielding your residence from the elements, siding can be susceptible to long-term decay and may also require maintenance. No matter the style or material of choice, it is always important to make a plan and consider all options before committing to such an enterprise.
The most popular siding materials nowadays are insulated, metal, vinyl, wood, and fibre cement. Each has its own strengths and weaknesses, as well as its own costs. When considering style, vinyl and wood both have the largest range of styles and can give your house the most wonderful appearance. Wooden wall cladding can look stunning with the proper stain or paint coat. Both materials can be either cheap or expensive, depending on the quality you settle for. Metal siding has very low-cost upkeep and can look gorgeous as well, but depending on the weather you might run into a denting problem. Insulated vinyl and fibre cement siding, on the other hand, can be a bit more expensive, but both provide an extra layer of protection. Proper quality insulation can also mean a reduction in energy needed indoors to regulate temperatures, which translates directly to long-term savings.

Once you have decided the siding style and material to use on your West Vancouver property, here are some things to consider before hiring a siding company:
- Check the quality of siding materials the provided, and make sure they are appropriate for the type of weather your West Vancouver home will be subjected to. Lower quality usually means cheaper costs, which might be tempting, but it can also mean it is going to cost you more in the long run.
- Ask around for reference regarding the level of expertise and professionalism of your general contractor. The siding company is trying to sell their service to you, so your best option to get objective information on them is to get references from previous customers.
- Find out the type of maintenance your siding requires, and whether the contractors you hire to do the job offer such future services.
- Be certain about your budget. As long as you know how much you can spend, and you communicate it effectively to your contractors, then you reduce the chance of surprise expenses popping-up mid-project.
