What goes into the cost of a siding project?
There are four main categories that make up the final cost of installing new siding.
The type of siding material that’s used on your home will definitely influence the cost. Higher-cost siding material will last longer and won’t need to be replaced as often as low-cost siding material.
Size of Home
The size of your home determines how much siding material is needed, and how much longer the installation process will take. The larger your square footage, the higher the cost for materials and labor.
Shape of Home
The cost of your siding project can also depend on the shape of your home. Siding a house with turrets, eaves, and multiple floors will require higher labor costs than a house with a simple cube shape.
Lastly, whether or not your home’s old siding needs to be removed or overlaid with new siding will influence the cost. Some types of siding can be installed on top of old siding; otherwise, you may need to pay more for the old siding to be removed before your siding contractors begin installation. Not sure if new siding is worth the cost? Keep in mind that installing new siding saves you the cost to repaint your home every few years.
Types of siding for homes
Siding comes in a large variety of styles and colors. Below is a list of the most common types of siding for homes. Not sure which is best for your situation? Check out some of the details to see if one option appeals to you over another.
Vinyl siding is perhaps the most common siding installed on American residential homes. It can last up to 50 years or more. Made of two extruded PVC layers that have been bonded together into planks, vinyl siding is very durable on the outer layer and usually less durable on the inner layer to keep cost down.
Other types of siding include:
- Wood siding (clapboard, cedar shake)
- Engineered wood siding
- Metal siding
- Fiber cement siding
- Brick & stone siding
