• Most Calgary homes have vinyl, stucco, wood or stone (cultured stone or natural) – or a combination of the above
  • Vinyl can easily last 25 years or more with little maintenance and 40 years is not unheard of
  • Stucco can last 25 to 40 years or more – stucco very much depends on proper installation – poorly installed stucco can start falling apart in less than 5 years – older stucco from the 1960s and 1970s was actually a better product than the last 20 – 25 years
  • Wood installed properly can last 40 years and more – well-maintained with regular painting
  • Stone (natural or more-commonly, cultured-stone) is lifetime if properly installed – stone itself obviously can last a million years – it’s the mortar that’s the weak point – good mortar lasts a lifetime too – poor mortar will fall apart and compromise the entire stone siding on your home – poorly installed stone has 2 weaknesses – water seepage through cracks – and mortar falling apart – both will affect your home’s integrity
  • Vinyl is subject to hail and high-wind damage – same as roofs – and will usually need complete replacement if damaged – some wind can be popped back in – vinyl with holes from hail will need replacing
  • Vinyl that’s more than a couple of years old will be hard to colour match (fading and stock changes) – that’s why usually hail damage on one side requires the whole house to be re-sided
  • Stucco is also easily damaged by hail – especially from the 1990s on – installation and product quality being the main problems
  • Stucco window sills can be hail-damaged
  • Stucco that is already spalling (peeling-away or cracking) can be further damaged by hail
  • Wood siding can be “sand-blasted” by hail though actual penetration is rare – painting usually restores wood siding
  • Stone itself cannot damaged by hail directly butpoor original mortar-work can be hail-blasted and can crack and weaken as a resultand can cause loose stone-work – this will need to be inspected and repaired to prevent further damage

  • We’ll deal with your insurance company to make sure they know the extent of any damage
  • Many insurers will send their own appraisers to assess your home – their job is to try and minimize the insurer’s liability – that is not to your benefit – they might suggest your siding is “only” partly damaged and will offer you a “percentage” covering the damaged areas only
  • It is true that often half or part of your siding will be damaged and the other half not – hail and wind is directional so that makes sense
  • But you cannot repair half of a siding easily – it cannot be patched– you cannot replace one piece of siding or section of stucco here and there – you cannot repair damaged underlay or plywood without replacing the whole siding from scratch- there exceptions which we can discuss
  • Natural fading also means colour matching new to existing siding is often impossible – doing half your siding will give it a checkerboard effect – that also affects your home value down the road
  • We’ll help you get a proper insurance claim to restore your home and it’s value
  • Your siding is your first line of defence against the elements – a leaky and unsecured siding will cause problems with the rest of your home – secure your siding
