New James Hardie Siding for Home in Vancouver

By Gabriel Callaway

October 8, 2021

Tending to and beautifying your home’s exterior is as important as taking care of your home’s interior. One way of doing so is maintaining your siding. A damaged siding will not only look unappealing but it may pose serious harm to your home.

Mold can grow, moisture can cause water damage, and more. In the long run, all of this can lead to even bigger problems. Good siding should properly protect and preserve the inside of your home, so you don’t need to waste money on expensive repairs you could have prevented. This homeowner from Vancouver agrees with us.



Preparations for Siding Installation

Here’s what we did for this project. First, we made sure that the surfaces where the sidings will be replaced are all good. We kept the existing 1/11 of the siding to use as underlayment. We then proceeded to inspect sheeting for rot or damage, then replaced the ones that needed to be replaced.

We also installed Vycor Window Wrap on windows and vapor barrier per manufacturer’s specifications. Lastly, for this stage of the process, we installed Hardie trim around windows, doors, corners and Z-metal above windows where needed.


After all the preparatory steps, we proceed with installing the siding. We used Hardie 8 Inch Cedarmill siding per manufacturer’s specifications. To add to that, we also installed two Hardie Shingle Straight Edge Panels on 3 peaks.

To finish off the new sidings, we applied two coats of Sherwin William's Super Paint. Once everything’s done, our crew cleaned up and disposed of all the job related debris and materials.
