How Much Does Siding Cost to Replace?

Vinyl, aluminum, wood and fiber cement siding all have their advantages and vary in price.


Unless they are made of brick or stone, most homes are protected by some form of exterior siding. Traditionally made of wood, siding now comes in several materials including aluminum and vinyl. Each has its strengths and weaknesses to consider.

One of the first questions I receive from homeowners looking to install siding on their homes is, “What is the best siding product?” The answer depends.

Returning home from the store with food for your big weekend cookout, you notice the siding on your house dangling loose from the recent thunderstorm.

Color greatly affects the curb appeal, value and personality of your home.

Siding doesn't have to be boring. There are now more ways than ever to spice up your home's exterior.

Angie's Answers


Call and ask your contractors these questions.  Don't be afraid to ask questions.  It is your money and home.  I would ask for references and take a look at samples of their work (especially the low bidder).  Make sure all are licensed and carry the required insurance.  You don't want to get a bad stucco job, so do your homework first before selecting a contractor; which may not be one of these.  Check with your local building department and local building exchange for more references on these and other contractors.  Good luck.


Alside is the far superior siding. Another option with the Alside is the Center Lock panel. It locks in the center of the panel, eliminating wind blow-offs,has a 3/4 inch profile, and carries the same warranty as the Charter Oak

     Both choices have plusses and minuses.

     I am partial to vinyl siding myself if it is put on by a contractor that pays attention to details in sealing against water intrusion. The better grades of vinyl stand up to the weater very well. The siding on my own home is over 15 years old and shows no signs of fading or any changes due to sun exposure and have had no problems with water entry around windows or doors. It does not dent like the old aluminum siding did or break if hit by a ball or a rock thrown by a lawnmower. As long as you save a few extra panels even if a rock was to be broken by something like a rock it is easier to repair. I will add that the earlier vinyl sidings did tend to fade but I have seen homes I sided after putting additions on that were done 20+ years ago and they look fine. Those closer to the 30 year mark not as good on the fading though. I gennerally never use the cheaper panels though so I can not vouch for them but I think that as long as it is one of the better manufaturers it seems to be just panel thickness. Just a personal opinion but if you are looking for added insulation I would use one of the 4X8 or 2X8 panels rather than the insulated siding. I can not see how insulation on the back of each panel with all the joints can do much more than stiffen the panels and I would think it would hamper the movement of the panels with changes in temperature.

     As for Hardi or any of the other fibre cement sidings it is way more costly and relys on caulk or tar paper strips between the panels to seal out water. It is not very forgiving on install mistakes and must be done perfectly to get the full Hardi warranty. I was just involved with a job where the contractor did not put a few pieces of flashing in properly and his guys lapped a corner board incorrectly and the Hardi lifetime warranty was void. Another thing I did not like is that it is put in with a blind nailing method and even though this house was done to specs in this area of the install the bottom of the siding was not tight to the lower courses in many spots. They did install it to the maximum exposure and I believe if they had gone to a larger panel or even lessened the exposure by 1/2" it probably would have been fine. The other thing I saw was the paint seems to be prone to scratching durring install and to me the house looked like it needed a paint job even though siding was new. I do think that if painted after install a paint job would last many years as the product is very stable and does not expand and contract much. The one big plus I see is it tend to HELP in and area prone to fires such as some ares out West.  I put the word help in capitals because it will not fireproof the home but may stop ignition from sparks and moderate heat exposure.



"Normal" construction practice dictates that the contractor remove all tools, unused materials (that you did not pay for) and scrap, and leave the worksite in a "broom clean" condition - this would include disposing (as he wishes) of removed saleable scrap - be it siding, old HVAC equipment, metal piping, etc.

Generally, unless you are talking copper sheet roofing or decorative copper ceiling panels or such, or in some cases very old in-demand recyclable timber or full-thickness hardwood flooring, the value of the metals will only marginally pay for his labor to load it and haul it to the metal recycler - especially with painted materials, which typically go for about half or less the going "clean metal" rate.
Look at the other side - how much hassle and cost will it take YOU to cut or bend the sheets into transportable lengths (since probably 10-12 foot pieces for full lengths) and haul them to a metal recycler - who may only be open during your normal work hours so you have to take time off, and maybe borrow or rent a pickup or trailer to haul it too ? All for a couple hundred $ in scrap value. Also - in some areas - scrap dealears are now limited by law to accepting construction scrap only from licensed contractors, because of the increased problem with people stripping houses and stealing from construction sites, so you as an individual might not even be able to sell it.

Siding reviews in Forest


Provider refused to contemplate a repair to vinyl siding for a customer who had previously purchased $8k+ in new Windows from them. The needed repair is unrelated to the window install but the "sorry, we only replace ( not repair ) siding" coupled with a refusal to suggest anyone else who could help prompted this negative review.
- Dan H.

Everyone was prompt, easy to work with. Had plenty of crew, fast, efficient and flexible when extra repairs were needed.

(Able) did a fantastic job of updating the exterior of my townouse. It was time for exterior work -after 26 years (built 1989/2nd owner); water damage on front box bay window trim; gutters with pinhole leaks etc.
I wanted
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
trim for the usual reasons-durability, composite material with color baked in, fade resistance, pest protection etc. The
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
website listed Able as a preferred contractor (only 3 in my area). However, I selected Able because
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the field manager, who came to estimate the job gave such a detailed evaluation of the project. Also, the price was competitive with the other companies. Although this was a smaller job by Able's standards, the attention to detail and responsiveness shown by
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
, the crew, and
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the admin. end made them a pleasure to work with.
Able installed

trim to replace rotten wood on the front box bay window trim; exterior trim below the roofline-decorative gable area, friezeboards etc. They also installed new gutters/gutter leaf guards/downspouts, soffits and capped the area behind, all return boxes and rakeboard. The final result looks great - even better than I expected.

I purchased an exterior home assessment package for $49.00. I knew I needed roof repair, decks and extensive work on the entrance and drainage, but I had little understanding of how much the repairs would
cost. I called
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
and met with

. He put me at ease
and helped me to set priorities.
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
was very honest and did not push me to
plan for work that was not absolutely necessary. He also brought an architect to
advise me on the entrance. He came about three times before I understood what
needed to be done. I now have a good understanding of how much I will have to
budget for this work and hope I will be able to begin the repairs next

was very kind when I told him that I could not contract any work at this time. I would recommend him
for being an honest professional who is easy to work with.

This is the second time this year that we have hired
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
and were again pleased with the quality of their work. The crew arrived on time on the date promised. The crew chief

from the office walked the property with me and reviewed the project details. The crew then went to work. They cleaned up the job site at the end of each day and were done in the two and a half days as estimated. The crew was careful of the flower beds and deck covering them with plywood and drop cloths.. The entire crew was polite and considerate.

We live in a 1930's house with a detached garage. The old garage entry door couldn't be secured and was of an odd size and make.
Forest Siding Contractors Provider Name Locked
were very responsive to my request for a quote. They showed up at the appropriate time and gave me a full estimate within a couple of days. I originally thought the estimate was a little high, but other companies I had look were even higher. After seeing the work they had to do, I understand a little more why the cost was higher than I thought it would be. The installer had to actually reposition wall studs and enlarge the door opening by four inches before the door could even be installed (as I mentioned above, the original door was VERY non standard). The resulting door looks great, is well installed, and now our garage not only looks better, but is about as secure as can be expected for a detached garage. I have used

one other time for some gutter work and they have pretty much become my first point of contact when I need something done.
- Derek D.

They came to the house and reviewed the issues I had seen with the siding. They told me that everything was ok and to not worry about the problems I had found. They then reseated some siding on the side of my house that had come loose. The guys that came to the house were professional, told me exactly what I needed to know with no hassle and no unneeded repairs. Will definitely use these guys in the future for any siding jobs that I'd need in the future.
- John A.

This company has to be one of the absolute best I have ever used. The attention to detail was very shown in all aspects of the job. All of the workers were extremely professional, respectful and just all around nice guys. I felt very comfortable with everyone and trusted my house was in good hands. The job continued without stopping. I have never experience this with contractors before. The owners are also very creative and gave great ideas/suggestion on design. I would highly recommend this company and will use them again in the future.
