How Much Does it Cost to Put New Siding on Your House?

Published on Friday August 3, 2018

Cost for new siding.

Your home is your castle — and every good castle needs a stalwart line of defense from slings, arrows, and the occasional dragon. Or, in the case of the modern home, protection from weather, pests, bikes, footballs and frisbees.

That’s where your siding comes in. Like a shining knight, siding is your home’s armor against hot summers, cold winters, hail storms in the spring, and airborne acorns in the fall.  Not to mention, mold, mildew, dents, rust, termites, and carpenter ants—the list goes on and on.

How can you put a price on protecting your home from all that?

In addition, replacement siding has the potential to improve your home’s curb appeal, increase property value when you decide to sell, and even lower your energy bills.

If your current siding is peeling, cracking, or just looking worn and faded, replacing it can be a worthwhile investment that provides a new level of durability and value for years to come.

Five factors that affect how much siding replacement costs

You might be wondering: how much does it cost to put new siding on your house? There are a lot of factors that can affect the cost. Here are a few:  

1. Materials

The type of siding material you choose is the biggest determinant of overall cost. There are quite a few siding materials out there, including vinyl, wood, fiber cement, stucco, engineered wood, synthetic stone, and aluminum.

“If you’re thinking of new siding, you’re in for a treat — and a conundrum,” writes DIY Network’s John Riha. “There are lots of siding options, and each presents a mixed bag of cost, reliability, ongoing maintenance, and environmental responsibility.”

Geography also plays a role. For example, vinyl siding is the most popular exterior wall type in the Northeast and Midwest, according to NerdWallet. Vinyl offers a lot of benefits at a relatively low cost: it’s long-lasting and durable, requires little to no maintenance, and doesn’t need to be painted.

Long Siding offers Solid Wall vinyl siding replacement system, which resists nicks and scratches, provides UV-protection against fading, and comes with a lifetime warranty. This insulated vinyl siding also features the thickest EPA foam insulation available, thereby helping improve your home’s energy efficiency.

2. Size of your home

The cost of siding installation is calculated based on the square footage of your home, so it stands to reason that more square feet equals a higher price tag.

3. Design/home features

Your home’s design and special features will also play a role in determining costs. How many stories? Does your home have overhangs, eaves, and gables? A tall, two-story Craftsman-style home with a low-pitched gabled roof, tons of dormers, windows, and trim work will require more materials and labor than a one-story California ranch or even a narrow rowhouse like you find in the Northeast.

4. Removal and disposal of existing siding

In most cases, you’ll have to remove and dispose of old siding. If you live in an older home, the process becomes much more painful and costly if you remove the old siding and find damage, such as rotten wood or termites. Those issues will have to be addressed before the new siding can be installed.

5. Other factors

The time of year and the labor market can also impact overall project costs. Installing siding in an off season like fall or winter can help you save on materials and labor. In addition, with fewer jobs on your contractor’s calendar, your project could also be completed quicker.

Return on investment

ROI on new siding.

While new siding has the potential to improve the look of your home, increase the value, cut your energy bills, and even eliminates noise, there are actual numbers to back up the value: Homeowners who replace siding with vinyl siding recover about 77 percent of the costs upon resale, according to the latest edition of Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value roundup.

Financing options 

Vinyl siding replacement is an important investment. The good news is that Long Siding offers a number of financing options available to fit every budget with competitive loan rates, flexible payment schedules and online options, easy-to-understand paperwork, and all-inclusive pricing.
