Vinyl Siding Cost
OK, the question every homeowner wants to know is... what is going to be my total vinyl siding cost? There are some sites that try to give tips or a vinyl siding cost estimator, but the truth is that since each home is unique, and some of the most significant determinants of the final vinyl siding cost will be due to style and material choices under your control, we'd like to give you as much information as possible to budget.
The single largest portion of the total vinyl siding cost is the panels itself. Panels can range from 0.35 mils to 0.52 mils, with accompanying variations in quality, durability, warranty and of course price. A sweet spot to get the most " bang for your buck " is choose a product in the 0.42 - 0.46 range. Below that the quality is too low and above that the vinyl siding cost skyrockets. A low quality panel may go for $60 per square which is enough product to cover 100 sq feet. A more expensive and higher quality panel or deeper, darker color may run up to $200/ sq. Once you get into Cedar Vinyl Siding you may be talking up to $300/sq. So you can see just the actual vinyl siding cost can vary up to 500%.
The next factor in vinyl siding cost is labor. While the labor for any particular contractor is relatively fixed, it's important that your contractor specialize in, or devote a large portion of his business to siding. Siding jobs require specialized skills, experience and equipment. You'd be surprised at how many generalists or handymen will attempt a small vinyl siding installation on a modest 1 level ranch, but shy away from a 3 story colonial. Making sure your chosen contractor has such qualifications will ensure the lowest vinyl siding cost.
Lastly, the vinyl siding cost may be determined or adjusted by the scope of the job. Are you willing to remove old aluminum siding? Are your gutters seamless and functioning OK? Would you be willing to forego new gutters to reduce the vinyl siding cost estimate? Remember, you are the homeowner and these are all potential savings for you.
In short, we've done jobs of all sizes from a vinyl siding cost of under $5,000 to large jobs or multiple buildings and a total vinyl siding cost of over $50,000.
