How much does the siding replacement cost?
The industry is changing and vinyl siding was 2x less expensive than fiber cement and 3x less expensive than cedar. Today, the difference is not that significant. In most cases, fiber cement will only be 10-20% higher than vinyl but lasts longer and looks better.
The reason behind this change is that:
- Many parts of the project like demolition, waste removal, building paper are the same for any of those materials.
- Price of Hardie siding which is one of the fiber cement brands dropped as it became more popular
- Over the last 5 years, many siding crews learned how to install fiber cement and supply of labour for fiber cement is higher than for vinyl
- The technology of vinyl siding advanced resulting in better warranty, colour protection but at the same time the price for premium vinyl siding is almost twice as high as regular
For an average home (about 2,000 sq ft) price for a renovation that includes everything involved in siding replacement would be $17,500 for vinyl and $20,000 for Hardie.
The three most typically used siding materials in Nanaimo are vinyl (both regular and premium), fiber cement (James Hardie), and wood siding like cedar.
- Vinyl is able to withstand wear and simple to install. It can also last in the changing winter climate.
- Fiber cement (James Hardie), is a composite material that offers homeowners the natural and warm look of wood siding without the risk associated with it (rot and pests).
- Cedar has a very natural look that can be stained in many different colours. Many homeowners prefer this if they located in a forest to keep the look of their house consistent with the surroundings.
