Vinyl Siding Installation

Vinyl siding is an excellent choice for anyone seeking a durable, low-maintenance, and cost-effective siding option. It’s particularly popular among Kitchener-Waterloo clients because of its resistance to the snow, hail, and wind. It requires essentially no maintenance over a long lifespan.

We offer vinyl siding in a wide variety of styles and colors. Vinyl siding can emulate the appearance of cedar shakes, clapboards, and other styles. It's an extremely versatile choice that is sure to please virtually any sense of style. You can choose from hundreds of colors and styles to fully personalize the appearance of your home.

The Trough Man can help you select the right vinyl siding for your home or business. During a consultation, we'll first assess your preferred aesthetic before giving you a range of options. We can then narrow down our selection based on style, color, and price so that you can find the right one for you.

From there, it's all just a matter of time before you have a new exterior. We work with speed and efficiency to ensure the installation goes smoothly. Before you know it, your property will look brand-new.

Insulated Siding: Energy Efficiency at Its Best

We also offer insulated siding, which is comprised of an extra layer of insulating foam between interior and exterior walls. This will keep your home cooler in the summer and hotter in the winter, and it will also reduce energy costs.

Insulated siding is one of the most cost-effective solutions for the modern home. It traps air on the inside and moderates the temperature of your interior, in turn keeping your home at an even, consistent heat. In the winter, it shields your home from the cool air, wicking away frost, and reducing your dependence on your furnace. Come summertime, the insulation will also help you beat the heat and cut costs on air conditioning. All seasons of the year, you can expect our insulated siding to save you considerable sums of money.

To find out more about the benefits of our insulated siding, don't hesitate to contact us today.

Aluminum Siding Installation

For a striking residential siding appearance with unmatched durability, many homeowners choose aluminum siding. It is lightweight and easy to install and retains a high degree of protection along with minimal maintenance.

The Trough Man installs innovative aluminum siding, protecting and securing your home against the elements.

Thanks to the unmatched quality of our products, we can proudly say our aluminum siding is one of the best bang-for-buck items available on the market. It offers numerous benefits for property owners, including:

Longer Lifespan: With minimal maintenance, our aluminum siding can last for decades. Come what may, your exterior will keep doing its job for years to come.

Rustproof: Aluminum siding does not rust. At The Trough Man, we can assure you that our aluminum siding will hold up over time, with no rusting whatsoever. See for yourself.  

Weather-Resistant: Snow, sleet, rain, and hail pose no threat to our aluminum exteriors. Ours is completely waterproof, making it the perfect first defense against the wetter months of the year.

Fireproof: Unlike shake shingles, vinyl, or other forms of siding, our aluminum will not burn, melt, or fall apart in the event of a fire. Come what may, your structure will stay standing.

Customizable Aesthetics: Our aluminum siding comes with a range of customization options. It's not just paintable. We can also add a baked-on coating to transform its aesthetic quality completely.

How to Add $10,000 in Value to Your Home in Under Three Weeks

If you’re a homeowner looking to take advantage of the soaring real estate market in Kitchener-Waterloo, you’re probably looking to list your home sometime in the future. Which means you need to start thinking about how to make the best visual impression to potential buyers and appraisers.

Where do you start? If you’re thinking the best way to improve your home’s appearance and to spark a bidding war is to renovate your kitchen, well, think again. Basement renovation? Digging a money pit that’ll recoup a measly 10-20% of the cash you spent on it. Adding a second story? Okay, this will actually generate quite a lot of resale value, but it’ll also cost a fortune and disrupt your life for months.

Keep Those Eyes on the Prize

So if the tried-and-testing methods for adding value to your home come up short, what is the one true path to add value to your Kitchener-Waterloo home?

You won’t believe us when we tell you, but it’s actually renovating your exterior siding. Seriously!

Humans rely on visual impressions when making judgments about the world around us. And the first thing that any prospective home buyer or real estate agent is going to see when they look at your place is your home exterior.

So when you’ve paid talented siding contractors to make your home exterior look as new as the day it was built, interested parties are going to carry that initial first impression of newness and shine to the rest of your home. It’s a theory that the study of psychology has proved time and time again: first impressions really do make a big difference.

How Can I Add $10,000 Worth of Value to My Home With Siding?

The simple fact of the matter is that siding has one of the best return-on-investment rates of any home renovation project you could finance. In fact, the average siding project recoups a staggering 90% of the money spent on it. When you consider that installing new siding on average only takes a few days (to a few weeks for the largest homes) and provides very little disruption to your day-to-day life, it’s simply the smartest home investment project you can make.

You might be suspicious of those figures, but if you think about it for a moment it really begins to make sense. Remodeling your kitchen might persuade prospective buyers, but you have to get them through the door first, don’t you?

When they’re browsing through online listings or walking through your neighborhood, they’re going to see the exterior of the home first. Humans are visual creatures, are they not? They’re going to make some quick and definitive judgments of your home by how it looks from the outside. Don’t risk losing out on a potential sale! Invest in new siding today by calling The Trough Man.

How to Install Siding the Easy Way

So you’ve decided that renewing your vinyl siding is the best way to add value to your home. Where do you begin? While taking siding installation on as a DIY project is possible, it’s not the best use of your time—it’s hard work and easy to screw up if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Instead, call Kitchener-Waterloo’s most trusted siding contractors. The Trough Man has been operating in the area for over 20 years and have a long list of satisfied local clients to back up our claims. We’re happy to provide products we love to work with or to pick up your preferred brands at the local hardware store. Competitive pricing and quality workmanship are the heart and soul of our mission. To get started, call us today!

How Siding is Installed

Because siding is just the outermost component of the home, installing new siding is as simple as attaching J-channels to the home with staples, and then nailing the individual pieces of siding to the home’s exterior layer. For most homes in Kitchener, the layer that goes underneath the siding is foam board insulation.

From there, it’s as simple as placing the siding carefully, making sure that the ends overlap properly to prevent moisture from getting into the home, and then nailing the siding down.

Of course, just because a task is simple in theory does not make it easy to do in practice. The misleading simplicity of home siding also leads many inexperienced handymen and homeowners to take a reckless approach.

Installing siding goes quickly if you’re experienced, but as a newbie, it can be overwhelming. For the average house in Kitchener-Waterloo, you can expect to be nailing siding down for at least two to four days.

But don’t get caught up in the rhythm: it’s crucial that you take frequent breaks to assess whether your siding is fully sealed and secured. Failure to do so leaves your home exposed to the elements.

Choose the Siding That Meets Your Home’s Needs

At The Trough Man, we know that no two homes are the same. We also know that for your Kitchener-Waterloo home to look and feel its very best, you need to have a siding scheme that works just right for you. You need a siding scheme that not only safeguards you from the harsh Kitchener-Waterloo weathers, you need one that looks nice too. And it is a bonus if it is affordable, too! It can be hard to find siding that adequately meets all these needs. Here at The Trough Man, however, we are more than confident that we can most satisfy any homeowner’s criteria. With years of experience in siding and the general construction sector, you can rest assured that with us on the job you will receive the best service possible.

When deciding on the siding that you want for your home, it always helps to have an idea of what type of material you would like to use. So, for example, if durability is your most important consideration, then you might want to select a strong and stable vinyl-based siding. However, at the end of the day, whatever type of siding you choose, our skilled team of professionals at The Trough Man will be there to install the material to the highest possible standard.

Having your siding installed by professional siding contractors can make budget-friendly siding go a long way, longer than some of the more expensive siding options. Wood siding that costs $10 per square foot will be useless if not properly installed.

Board and Batten Siding

Contrary to popular belief, board and batten siding isn’t a material, but is a style of siding. It involves vertical siding rather than horizontal (the ‘boards’), coupled with battens, which are small raised panels securing the individual boards.

Board and batten siding is traditionally made using wood. Another name for it is ‘barn siding’. But these days, it can be made of any material you like. The difference? Well, it’ll retain the ‘board and batten’ look, being made of the special components that made the siding look special.

You can choose a synthetic siding that looks like wood, traditional vinyl siding, or you can use quality cedar wood for a truly luxurious finish. It all depends on how you want to style your property. Because you’ll recoup nearly every dollar spent on siding materials and installation, there’s no reason to settle for anything but quality siding that makes you happy to live in your home.

Best Materials for Board and Batten Siding in Kitchener-Waterloo

Like we said, many people call this style of siding ‘barn siding’. Why’s that? Because many of the old post-and-beam style outbuildings like barns and sheds in rural communities have this classic siding. During the primitive days of home construction, vertical siding was the only practical siding option imaginable to builders. Horizontal siding was only introduced when home construction itself evolved.

What do we think the best material is for board and batten siding? Wood is certainly a great choice. Believe it or not, wood siding is versatile. It can also be locally sourced if you’re lucky!

With a bit of sanding, wood siding can have a polished sheen look. Don’t want the polished look? No problem! The Trough Man can help you find the rustic wood siding you’ve always wanted by using rough sawn lumber.

Cedar, without question, is one of the most beloved wood choices for home siding. Cedar, unfortunately, can be quite expensive for some homeowners though. When that is the case, there are many other wood options to choose from. Maybe spruce is the right choice for you!

What’s the Average Siding Installation Cost for Kitchener-Waterloo?

The price to install siding or repair worn or damaged siding depends on the following factors: the size of your property, the type of material you’re using, and the skill and rates of the siding contractor you work with.

If you go the DIY route with inexpensive vinyl you found at your local hardware store, installing new siding on your Kitchener-Waterloo home can cost as little as $2,000. However, because siding regains such a large portion of its costs when it comes time to sell your home, it’s a good idea to invest a little extra cash in quality materials that will last a long time. This is one way to set your home apart from the rest on your street, making it attractive to neighbors and potential buyers alike.

Spending a few hundred dollars to have your siding professionally installed means you won’t need to pay to replace it earlier. You’ll better protect your home from the elements, and you’ll get our personal guarantee of a job well done.
