Whether it’s due to damage, old age, or to improve your home’s curb appeal, there comes a time when you have to replace your siding. 


The most significant caveat that comes up with replacing siding is the cost, particularly how much the project will set you back. 


Before we get to that, let’s see what can affect the project’s cost and how you save with insurance claims.  


What Affects The Cost of Siding Installation in Calgary? 


The cost of the installations is greatly affected by the following factors: 


The Size of Your Home 

  • Simple mathematics here: the bigger your home, the more work will be required, and therefore, the more the cost will rise. The architecture of your home can also impact the siding installation as it might require a specific approach or take up more time. 

The Type of Siding Material 

  • Depending on your choice of materials, it can affect the bottom line as certain materials cost more than others. Example: As reported by Thumbtack, vinyl costs $5 per square foot, while fiber cement costs $9 per square foot. Depending on what you want in terms of value, you will have to consider your options. 

The Removal of the Old Material

  • It is always recommended that the old exterior is removed, which will be factored into the quote, depending on what it is. For example, siding is easier to remove then stucco. 

The Labour Hire 

  • The experience, quality, and professionalism of a siding contractor in Calgary. will impact the project’s overall cost. You are paying for an installation service that might be more costly than others, but you’re getting a worthwhile investment that pays off in the long-term.  

As a note: look for siding installers certified Gentek Premium Gold Renovator and members of the James Hardie Contractor Alliance. It means you’ll be hiring siding experts, particularly James Hardie siding in Calgary.

Hubbard Roofing and Exteriors has served Calgarians for almost 35 years. Started as a roofing company, Hubbard soon added siding to their slate of services and has now installed siding in Calgary for 25 years.


Bjorn Delblanc, a former renovation expert for James Hardie Building Products and of Blue Jay Renos in Edmonton, was able to see the company’s legacy first hand when he worked for James Hardie in Alberta.


“Because they’ve been in business for so long, they’ve got addresses for all their previous customers in Calgary,” says Bjorn. “You can see their work from years ago, and it’s a powerful thing to go check out that past work.”


When Bjorn first approached Hubbard to increase their comfort, installing James Hardie siding products, he encountered a company keen to learn and grow.


“Hubbard was very open to change and was open to trying new stuff,” says Bjorn. “They were very receptive and good listeners.”


This enthusiasm to improve was evident to Bjorn as he coached Hubbard’s exterior experts and Hardie Board installers. 


“They listened, and they learned really quickly, and they sought my feedback. They didn’t just wait for my feedback. They were actively making sure that they were getting better as they were doing it,” says Bjorn.


As a result, the quality of their James Hardie siding projects improved significantly. So much so that they achieved a status claimed by only one other Calgary siding contractor.


“Every time I went to their houses, they got better and better,” says Bjorn. “It’s culminated in them achieving Elite Preferred contractor status for James Hardie.”

“That’s the top-level that a renovation contractor could achieve on the James Hardie Contractor Alliance program, and there’s only seven or eight in Canada,” says Bjorn.


Elite Preferred status is not easy to secure or maintain. To be eligible, a contractor must maintain a certain level of work. 


“You have to do 18 jobs a year,” says Bjorn. “An Elite Preferred Contractor with Hardie also has to maintain a high standard of customer service.”


According to Bjorn, “Hardie uses a company called Guild Quality to do third-party customer surveys for every project you enter in their system.” This means that these customer ratings are much more trustworthy than the average review you find online.


These two requirements – volume and quality of work – make Elite Preferred status so challenging to achieve.


“You can’t make Elite Preferred if you’re not doing lots of work with Hardie, which is important for the experience aspect, and also making your customers happy throughout the process.”


This status shows that even after nearly 35 years in business, Hubbard continues to set high standards for exterior renovations in Calgary.
