Why is Vinyl Siding so popular in Ottawa?

Vinyl is Ottawa’s Number One choice for Siding

Modern Vinyl siding is aesthetic and has a high-quality performance. Here are the some of the reasons why vinyl siding can be a smart choice for the exterior of your home.


Whereas other exteriors like fiber cement and wood siding can be expensive, vinyl siding is an affordable option because it is manufactured using low-cost materials. But don’t make the mistake of assuming the lower cost of vinyl siding equals a cheaply made product! Vinyl siding is known for its exceptional quality in addition to its affordability, which makes it a great value to homeowners. This value also reflects well in the housing market, where updating a home with new vinyl siding can increase its resale price.


From intense heat and UV rays, to hail and strong winds (look out, Dorothy!), vinyl siding holds up well in most weather conditions. Unlike aluminum siding that is more susceptible to damage, vinyl siding doesn’t dent and can withstand more impact to its surface. The siding undergoes several quality assurance tests to ensure it meets or exceeds ASTM standards.

The durability of vinyl siding makes it a perfect choice for homeowners who don’t want the added chore of having to maintain the exterior of their home. Once installed, vinyl siding is maintenance free. Vinyl never needs to be repainted because it doesn’t flake or chip. If the siding gets dirty, it’s as simple as hosing it down.

Aesthetically Pleasing

Vinyl siding has become a popular choice and with good reason: it offers countless possibilities when designing your home. With so many colours to choose from, there are various ways to customize the exterior look of your home. The siding comes in a wide range of colour profiles – from traditional neutrals to trendy bolds – for maximum curb appeal. You can also select from an array of styles to suit the design of your house, such as lap siding or board and batten. And there is a large number of trim and accessories for the window and doors to complete the overall look. No matter the difference in decorative taste, the result is the same: a clean appearance that refreshes worn home exteriors.

Moisture Resistant

When it comes to protecting the exterior of your home, vinyl siding does its job well. In addition to protecting your house from outside elements, the siding is also designed to prevent moisture from damaging the structure. The siding’s nail and hem locking system means the siding is firmly and securely attached to the home. Weep holes located at the bottom of the siding allow any moisture to escape, and prevents the risk of mold and mildew from growing in behind the siding.
