Prefinished wood siding is not just about providing an excellent option for house siding. It’s also about providing a quality product that contractors can install easily. Contractors have to be well versed in all aspects of home repair and renovation, and that’s not an easy job. With several projects on the go, contractors are always looking to work with materials that help them balance their busy schedules and meet their many tight deadlines. While siding installation can be an onerous job, carefully designed Siparila Topcoat® wood siding is both easy to use and easy to install.
When you’re helping your clients choose house siding, you can suggest material options like prefinished wood siding and talk about colour options, but the discussion should also include information about siding installation. For example, informing clients that Siparila Topcoat® wood siding has hidden nail heads which prevents water damage and creates a more beautiful façade can help them choose the right siding for their home. Siparila Topcoat® has secret fastenings, which means you won’t need to touch-up nail holes, nails won’t pop-out over time, and there will be no decay around nail from deep water penetration. What’s more, every Siparila Topcoat® siding piece is end-matched to allow for flexible joint placement, and not being bound to stud placement during installation ultimately decreases material loss 5-10%.
Installing Siparila Prefinished Wood Siding Can Save Contractors Time And Money
As mentioned, contractors are always looking for ways to make their projects more efficient. When you choose to install prefinished wood siding like Siparila wood siding, not only will the actual installation process be easier, but you will also receive direct benefits that will save you time and money.
- The end-matched panels and tongue and groove paneling allows pieces to simply click into place for fast installation.
- No painting is required at the work site.
- The material is suited for installation in any weather, which means less project delays.
- The siding is easy to handle and transport.
- It can be installed without cutting.
- The end matched panels decrease material loss up to 10%.
- Invisible fastening can be done with nails or staples.
Siparila Topcoat® fixed length siding helps installers calculate the amount of the siding required for a project more precisely. There is no need to estimate yield from random lengths. The siding arrives packed in bundles containing the exact number of pieces and lengths, ensuring the accuracy of material on hand. This new packing method also reduces material loss, resulting in a competitive advantage for the installer.
When the siding planks are delivered painted and ready-to-install, you’ll also spend less time preparing the materials which directly saves you time and money. In addition, since siding installation with Siparila wood siding means less measuring and cutting, you’ll also produce less waste. Want to know more?

Exterior siding used to only offer a handful of neutral colour options, but today’s house siding products provide multiple colour choices, making it a great way to add curb appeal to your home’s exterior. The right exterior siding for your home help your house stand out and look great, no matter what elements it may have to endure. While many people emphasize landscaping to add curb appeal, your home’s exterior siding is what people will notice first.
Exterior siding has become one of the most popular choices for homes across Canada. With new wood siding options that can stand up to water and humidity, it’s no wonder that exterior siding is one of the best ways to improve the outer façade of your home.
How To Choose Exterior Siding Colours
Changing the colour of your house siding can not only change the way you feel about your home, but can also positively impact its value. All types of siding, including wood siding, now offer many more popular colour options, including light and dark shades of greens, greys, blues, and yellows to beautify your home. A popular siding choice from Siparila is our Evolute 8 siding, which comes in a variety of sold and translucent colours. We’ve also developed new, natural colours that highlight the Evolute 8’s beautiful wooden structure.
To choose the right siding colour for your home, use these five questions to help guide your choice.
1. What’s your neighborhood like?
Drive around and take note of the colour schemes of homes you like, paying particular attention to your own area and homes styled similar to yours. While you can certainly choose a siding colour scheme that you love, you also want to make a selection that will look good in your home’s location.
2. What’s the style of your home?
Your home’s style will often provide visual cues that can help you decide on the right colour, but don’t feel forced to abide by tradition when it comes to your selection. Some home styles, such as cottages or homes in more rural areas, may offer more freedom when it comes to choosing siding colours as you’ll be less constrained by a neighbourhood style.
3. What size is your home?
A dark colour can look rich and distinctive when you’re looking at siding samples, but when placed on a midsize or larger house, it can feel gloomy or overpowering. At the same time, colours that are too light may prevent a smaller home from standing out. Overall, lighter colours can neutralize features that you don’t want to draw attention to, while darker colours can bring focus to areas worth highlighting.
4. What colour is your roof?
Exterior house siding can have a long lifespan, which means you should consider the colour of your roofing when making a final siding colour decision. A lighter siding color scheme can complement a darker roof shade. If your rood is mid-toned and has a neutral hue, almost any colour for your exterior siding will work.
5. What about complementary colours?
Once you’ve chosen your main colour, you’ll also need to select accent colours for your window trims, doors, and railings. If you’re unsure about what to select, start with one complementary colour that can serve as a focal point, and one hue that’s a shade or two lighter or darker than your main siding colour.
