Vinyl Siding Installation
Calgary’s resident vinyl siding experts. Let us show you how good vinyl siding can look!
Vinyl Siding Made for Alberta’s Extreme Weather
Not all siding is created equally, and siding that can endure Alberta’s weather and Calgary’s hail storms must be robust and ready for the job. Let our siding crew show you how vinyl siding can enhance your home.
For even more hail protection, consider Hardie board siding and impact-resistant roofing.
Choose from a variety of colours to match or enhance any aesthetic.
The difference between a “decent” installation and a good one is all in the details.
Robust & Long-Lasting
We only use high-quality vinyl siding from Canadian or American manufacturers.
5-Year Install Warranty
Plus a 25-year manufacturer’s warranty on the siding itself!
Questions Customers Ask Us About Our Hardie Board
With all the crazy weather in Calgary, you need to make sure your house is protected. These FAQ’s might help you feel confident about your investment in vinyl siding.
What Are the Benefits of Vinyl Siding in Calgary?
Vinyl siding makes an easy way to freshen up a house. Vinyl is less expensive per square foot than many other siding materials. It also doesn’t need to be painted, since vinyl siding comes in a variety of different colours.
How Long Does Vinyl Siding Normally Last?
When installed by professionals like us and kept in proper condition, vinyl siding can last for decades. There are stories of homeowners whose vinyl siding lasts for up to 40 years! However, environmental conditions, accidents, and other unpredictable factors can all affect the lifespan of your siding.
How Do You Maintain Vinyl Siding?
You can clean your vinyl siding with a soft cloth or a brush with soft bristles. Do not use brushes with rough textures, as these can damage the finish of your siding and change its texture.
Avoid cleaning your vinyl with a power washer, since holding it at the wrong angle can drive water behind the boards and lead to moisture damage. Do not use bleaches, furniture cleaners, nail polish remover, liquid grease removers, organic solvents, or other harsh cleaners, as these will damage your siding.
Is Vinyl Siding Better than Hardie Board?
Vinyl siding does not offer as much protection from the elements as hardie board siding, and it takes work to keep it in good condition. However, vinyl also costs less than hardie board siding, both in terms of the installation and the material itself.
What Warranties Does Vinyl Siding Come With?
Our vinyl siding comes with a 25-year warranty that guarantees it against materials and manufacturing defects. And every Big 5 job comes with our leading 5-year installation warranty that guarantees the quality of our work.
How Long Does Vinyl Siding Take to Install?
Our turnaround time to install vinyl siding on an average house is about one week (5-6 business days). Large homes or those with more than two stories may take longer.
Note that major weather events, such as hail storms, will impact these projected timelines (it’s not uncommon for us to get hundreds of phone calls in the days following a major hail storm, it can be hard to get access to materials during high-demand periods, etc.). During our initial consult, we will inform you of our expected timeline.
Do You Need to Paint Vinyl Siding?
Vinyl siding can be painted with specific products that expand and contract along with it when the temperature outside changes. Painting vinyl siding can be a great way to change the appearance of your home and revitalize your siding without having to replace it.
However, be aware that painting your siding can affect the manufacturer’s warranty. Different manufacturers have different warranties, so contact us if you’re considering painting your siding and ask for details first.

Real Customer Reviews
Big 5 just finished replacing all my homes gutters. They did an amazing job! The crew was efficient and professional and the work was top notch!
Safe , professional, site was always clean. No chatting, no music, just 2 quality tradesmen getting the project done. They noticed a couple spots on second story where the caulk was letting go...they noticed and they fixed...i wouldn't have known if I didn't see them. Site was cleaned up like nothing happened.
I needed new gutters for a rental property, and they were professional and very efficient. They even nipped a possible leak problem in the bud for us! I would recommend them to anyone!
