5 Finishes to Enhance your Home’s Exterior

These seem to be the ‘go to’ finishes in our clients as they provide a high level of finish and in most cases low maintenance for the end user. These finishes are frequently used in combination with one another and can be utilized to highlight certain building features.

Fiber Cement Siding

Fiber cement siding offers maximum durability and resistance to prolonged exposure, especially against British Columbia’s freezing temperature and high UV rays. The paint is baked into the siding boards, ensuring a consistent, lasting finish. Some companies even offer colour pallets specifically designed for BC homes, featuring forest greens and mountain sage.

Pre-Finished Aluminum Siding & Soffits

Aluminum soffit and siding gives a beautiful and natural wood appearance while being low maintenance and weather resistant. Wood grain, colour, and gloss are customizable, allowing a completely tailored look that will last forever.

Stucco

Stucco is a natural cement-based material that cures to a hardened state when applied. Stucco finishes are relatively low maintenance, last several decades, and can be painted when a change of color is desired. Stucco has a large range of finish textures available, ranging from a smooth, lace, dash, sand finish, old English to comb texture.

Natural & Faux Stone Veneers

Natural and faux stone veneers are protective and decorative coverings for exterior and interior surfaces, used for a range of designs from siding to outdoor fireplaces. Natural stone is durable and strong, while manufactured stone can come in a variety of custom designs and colours. Both have the ability to completely transform the exterior of a home, ranging in styles from rustic brick to sleek modern slate.

Pre-Finished Metal Cladding

Metal offers a wide variety of choices, including aluminum, galvanized and stainless steel. Metal cladding allows for specific tailored cuts and designs, and secondary metal services such as embossing, perforating, laminating and precision curving are available. This creates a unique, custom look that will be low maintenance and long lasting.
