Siding replacement can boost your home’s appeal, energy efficiency and weather protection. When planning one, cost is a key factor to consider. Several things can influence the price of your project, such as material quality and the size of your house. Labor costs can also vary by contractor.
Get an accurate siding estimate using these three tips.
1. Decide on a Material
The material makes up a significant portion of your siding replacement cost. Your location usually influences your options. It pays to invest in a material that works well for your climate. At Twin Cities Siding Professionals, we install James Hardie® fiber cement siding, designed to perform well regardless of where you live. It has the beauty of natural wood and offers superior resistance to weather, rot and warping.
2. Get Multiple Quotes
You’ll get a better idea of your siding replacement cost by obtaining estimates from multiple contractors. Experts recommend consulting at least three companies before hiring one. Make sure your prospective installers specialize in your preferred material. Moreover, beware of unrealistically low estimates. It could be that the contractor lacks experience or uses inferior products.
3. Ask About Additional Fees
The structure of your home can influence labor costs. Your contractor might need to use special equipment or spend more time replacing your siding, depending on the design of your house. In the middle of construction, workers could also discover damage. They must address it before installing the new material. Don’t forget to ask your contractor about potential issues or challenges that can add to the cost of your project. It’s also a good idea to allocate funds for unexpected expenses.
