The low level of maintenance, excellent durability and versatility, along with the affordability of vinyl siding makes it the most common choice for siding materials in Canada. 

It depends on the type of materials used and the quality of installation, however, most types of siding should typically last as long as you own your home. Aluminum siding should last 25-40 years, vinyl siding should be able to protect your home for 60-100 years, and natural stone and stucco siding can last for 100+ years. Keep in mind that these values can change significantly depending on your climate, the level of care and maintenance, and on the brand of the siding products.

Yes. Whether you have old siding that needs to be replaced, are renovating your home before putting it on the market, or need a more updated and energy efficient siding option, you expect to get up to 80%+ ROI (return on investment). It is one of the most popular and cost-effective investments into the exterior of your home.

It will be much more cost effective and efficient if you decide to also replace your windows when getting new siding installed. This will allow for the best possible flashing and water infiltration protection.
