Soffit and Siding West-Island
Siding comes in different types of materials and since it is an important part of your home, determining the type of siding for your home is important. Siding protects your home from the elements but also gives your home curb appeal.
The different materials that can be used to side a home include aluminum siding, vinyl siding, stucco, cedar, brick, and composite siding. Given the all the different types of siding available, you will want to shop around to ensure that you are making the best decision for you and your home. Some of the different options that you will need to consider not only includes the type of siding you want, but also if you will purchase siding that doesn’t need painting, and the trim and gutters to match your siding.
Soffits are available in a variety of colours, profile and function. The two main categories of soffits are: Vented and Non-Vented.
A vented soffit is a functional component of any house. It creates a source for intake air to the attic space so that it may breathe. Small perforations in the soffit material allow for air to enter while restricting access for pests and rodents. Non-vented soffits are purely aesthetic and can complement the exterior of your building in a variety of colours and designs.
Our soffit materials are either solid vinyl or prefinished aluminum. In the past soffits were usually painted plywood. Plywood’s downfall is that it is very susceptible to rot and deterioration which then enables pest and rodent entry into your attic, which lends itself to other problems. In addition, plywood like all other wood products, requires periodic staining or painting which can become tedious for those hard to reach areas.
