SIDING INSTALLATIONS

In Calgary, where we know all too well that our homes are frequently exposed to harsh weather conditions such as hail, snow, rain, and strong winds, siding issues and damage are common. Replacing siding that has been worn or aged can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency, comfort and safety.

Siding can be a major element in your home’s appearance and purchasing the right type and style can be daunting. RidgeCrest is here to help you understand the aspects of the various types of siding in Calgary to give you the confidence in making an informed decision. We will help you to choose the most appropriate siding for your style of home and preferences. Siding is available in a variety of colours and styles, and you can even use panels that mimic building textures that would be costly to apply.

WHAT TYPE OF SIDING SHOULD I CHOOSE FOR MY EXTERIOR?

There are many siding installation choices available for businesses and homeowners who are concerned with energy efficiency or durability and there are advantages and disadvantages to each type of siding. We have a large network of siding vendors and manufacturers to give you access to a variety of choices.
