How Much Does the Siding Cost?
The cost of siding renovation depends on several different factors, such as the size and accessibility of the home, the material and profile you choose from, as well as the life span of the current siding.
If the life span of the siding is over and left untended, it can cause damage to the materials underneath and, in some cases, the house’s integrity. If that occurs, the cost of the siding project will be higher to account for repairs needed to be done.
We make sure we give homeowners everything they need to make an informed decision based on their budget. No matter what, you can be confident that you are getting the best price and workmanship available on the market for the scope of work that is going to be done.
- Vinyl siding is one of the most affordable options due to its low material cost and easy installation. It is durable and requires little to no maintenance. It is usually between $6-7 per sq ft. For an average home, you’ll need about 2,000 sq ft of siding material, which brings the total to approximately $12,000 – $14,000.
- Fiber Cement (James Hardie) has grown considerably in popularity. It is very durable and resistant to rot, termites, and fire. It can be challenging to install, so finding professional siding installers is key. The cost increases to $9-10 per sq foot, bringing the total amount for the same house to around $18,000 – $21,000.
- Cedar is hard to match in terms of look and curb appeal. It is pretty easy to work with but requires a lot more maintenance than the other options. This is more of a premium option starting at $11-13 per sq ft. That brings the total for the same house to $22,000 – $26,000 without additional costs for painting or other decorative elements.
Here’s a quick table of some siding materials and their cost per sq. ft.
|Material||Price per sq ft*|
|James Hardie (Fiber Cement)||Starts at $9.50|
|LP® Smartside® (Engineered Wood)||Starts at $8.50|

Popular Siding Styles
There are many different kinds of materials and siding styles to choose from. Here are some of the most popular options so you can start planning which is best for you. Selecting the right style of siding affects its performance in different climates and the appearance, character, and value of your home.
Siding planks (also known as lap siding) are one of the most popular options among homeowners. We renovated on average 80% of houses last year with the plank style. They can be installed both vertically and horizontally, giving you more control over the finished look.
This style of siding is excellent for creating a classic, cozy, inviting look. The most common materials are Cedar, Vinyl, and Fiber Cement (James Hardie). They are available in a wide range of colors, so you can pick the shade that you like the best.
Siding Panels are a little different, offering an alternative contemporary look for more modern, minimalist, sleek-looking homes. Panels can be smooth, or they can mimic the look and texture of natural wood. They can help capture the clean lines of your home and draw attention to the architectural elements around them.
Like siding planks, panels can be installed horizontally or vertically and are often cut on-site to create customized profiles and designs. Board and Batten, Easy Trim Reveal, and Open Join Cladding are all popular panel types. Panels are also available in a wide range of colors, making them easily customizable.
Shakes and Shingles
Siding Shingles are another desirable siding option and can have a wide range of appearances depending on what materials are used. They are an effective way to highlight specific parts of the architecture, providing quality and contrast. Adding warmth to your home’s overall design, they look quaint and refined and will make your home look outstanding.
They are often made from Cedar, Fiber Cement, and Vinyl. Cedar shingles can be left with their original appearance or painted, while most other materials come in various painted options for more versatility.
