Your home’s siding serves many different protective purposes for your home. Consider it armor for your home, shielding it from the elements, insulating it, and protecting it from moisture. It may be a simple concept, but it must be installed well if it is going to do its job properly.

If your siding looks a little shabby, or you think it might be time for an upgrade, give The Trough Man a call. We are the area’s foremost siding experts and have spent years building up our siding acumen to serve you best. Our expert knowledge and workmanship will leave you with the right protection for your home.

Book a Siding Consultation

If you are not sure about the state of your siding or the extent of repair that you need, call us up and we can book a consultation. On the set date, we will come by and put our expert knowledge to the test. We will provide a thorough inspection of the siding and let you know what’s going on, as well as provide you with an informative quote. Between the time you call and the time we arrive, there are a few things you can do to check on the state of your siding. If your siding is peeling away from the house, or you notice any warping in the shape or discoloration, it should be replaced soon. Most of the time, these problems are caused by excess moisture caught behind the siding.

If you see these forms of damage on your siding, you don’t want to leave it for too long, because depending on the extent of the defect, this excess moisture could cause interior damage as well. After all, the siding of your home is a protective barrier. If moisture has gotten trapped behind, it is no longer serving its intended purpose. Black or green mold spots in the shady areas of your siding can be another indication of a moisture problem. If you are experiencing any of the previously mentioned issues, call us for a siding consultation today.

Is Siding a Good Investment?

Significantly increase the resale value of your home and take back control of energy efficiency. Siding is a good investment for three reasons:

  • Home heating bills are reduced due to better insulation
  • The visual appearance of the building is boosted, and resale value goes up

Improve Your Home's Energy Efficiency With New Siding

When most homeowners decide they want to save money on their monthly energy bills, the first thing they do is check their roof, windows, doors, heating, and cooling systems. Although it serves as an external barrier to the elements and covers the whole building, many forget that siding is an excellent insulator and one of the key factors in your home's energy efficiency.

If your siding has been damaged, you could be losing money on heating and cooling every month. Time to replace it.

By choosing The Trough Man to install your new siding, you're guaranteed to reap all the energy-saving benefits that high-quality siding offers.

Increase Your Home's Value With Siding Installation

They say that first impressions are everything. If you're thinking of putting your home on the market, what kind of impression do you want your house to make? Of course, you can start with some landscaping. Maybe re-paint the windows and the garage door. But what does the siding say about your house?

New siding—when properly installed by a professional contractor—can dramatically increase the value of your home. On the one hand, it's a big investment. But if you sell, it will all be paid back. On the other hand, because siding can go a long way towards making an impact on potential buyers, it can boost your property value, more than covering the initial installation costs.

The only catch is that it must be installed properly. Call us today to book a consultation and get a no-obligation quote on siding installation.

Energy-efficient Siding

Did you know that siding can actually help insulate your home? Not only does it protect from the wind, rain, snow, and other weather conditions, but siding also has the added benefit of creating an extra barrier between your home's interior and the outside temperature. This is a huge advantage in a region that is affected by both cold winters and hot summers!

As siding experts, we have seen the amazing results that siding produces. But only when it is properly installed by a certified expert. That's where we come in. We are one of the region's leading siding companies. We provide solutions to energy efficiency problems and help our clients spend less on their monthly energy bills.

Want to learn more about the energy-saving benefits of siding? Call us now.


Beyond the types of siding we listed above, we also sell a range of styles. From natural tones of wood or stone veneers to the bright and colourful options in vinyl or aluminum, there is a siding for every taste. In fact, this is one of the reasons that we love siding—it allows for an added level of personalization that other building materials simply don't permit.

Bored with your red brick house? Good luck trying to change the exterior. But with siding, a flash of colour and a dash of personality is just a phone call away. A phone call to us that is!

Call now to learn about the many styles, textures, and colours of siding that we offer.

A Customer-first Approach To Siding

How Much Does Siding Cost?

Since siding comes in many different types and the amount needed for each worksite differs from one place to the next, the best way to figure out how much siding will cost is to reach out to one of our team for a comprehensive estimate.

When you allow us to fully understand the unique requirements of your home, retail space, office space, or industrial building, we can work together to build an estimate that meets your high expectations—without exceeding your budget.

The Benefits of Siding

It’s no secret that siding has dominated the home exterior scene for years, and we have no doubt that this trend is here to stay. The benefits of siding are far-reaching. A one-time siding investment translates to:

  • Energy savings
  • Increased curb appeal
  • A low-maintenance exterior

Skeptical that something as simple as siding can do so much? Let’s break down the siding advantages even further.

  1. Energy savings

How exactly will your siding investment put money in your pocket, you ask? Premium siding products feature sophisticated insulation technology. Wrapping your building in this high-tech material drives down thermal conductivity, which in turn reduces the load put on your HVAC system. Ultimately, your home’s exterior contributes significantly to the number you see on your utility bill. With siding in place, that number is sure to shrink.

  1. Curb appeal

In today’s market, siding can mimic the aesthetic of any number of other, more expensive, products. Thanks to recent developments in texture technology, manufacturers can take real-life imprints of natural materials, like wood, and craft vinyl and polymer replica twins. These low-cost imitations require far less upkeep, plus, they look life-like up-close and from a distance.

  1. A low-maintenance exterior

With siding, your home exterior’s colour won’t fade at the same rapid pace as it would with other materials. Modern siding has color injected thoroughly throughout the shingle. That way, even when harsh sunlight rays beat down on your building, the vibrant, bright finish will stay intact. Plus, siding isn’t nearly as vulnerable to rainy and snowy weather as other products are. A siding exterior is a low-maintenance exterior that you can leave virtually unattended, year after year, without fear.
