How Much Does It Cost For Vinyl Siding?

Expect to pay between $5 and $15 per square foot to install vinyl siding on an average home.

Clean, attractive siding has a significant impact on your home’s curb appeal and it goes a long way in determining your home’s value. Choosing the right siding color to complement your roofing can do wonders with making a good first impression.

Especially on Long Island, your siding is exposed to the harsh effects of the climate. In some areas, there’s constant exposure to wind, sand, salt and other storms that wreak havoc on your fresh exterior surfaces.

Factors That Influence Cost to Replace Vinyl Siding

There are generally three main factors that influence the cost of replacing your siding: the size of your home, the shape of your home, and the material.

Home Size: Unified, like most companies, charge per square foot for a siding replacement, so your home’s height and size affect the material price and labor costs. This is pretty straightforward; the more house there is to cover, the greater the cost to replace siding on home surfaces. The size of your home has a trickle down impact on all other costs, including the materials costs, labor and cost of additional elements like window flashing and insulation.

Home Shape: Similarly, the shape of your home is critical because, while a basic one-story home with straight lines is a simple job, a two- or three-story home with dormers, turrets or complicated roof angles and facings makes a job significantly more challenging. Not only do uniquely shaped homes require more labor, they also need more material because fitting siding into angled or shaped facings generally results in more wasted material.

Materials: The biggest cost variation is often the siding material itself. There are many different styles, materials, and manufacturers of siding. From dutchlap, to shake and composite siding there are multiple factors that can increase or decrease the price of your job. Each manufacturer has different specifications for different products including length of the siding panels, colors available, thickness of material, and installation guides that cut cost or labor.

There are a few other elements that contribute to the overall cost of the job that should be taken into consideration when you’re shopping for a home improvement contractor, including:

      • Removal: You need to remove the existing siding before installing new siding and the labor charges to remove and dispose of your old siding depend on what type of siding is coming off your house.

      • Gutters: Replace your old, weathered gutters to help protect your new siding from future moisture problems. On average, you can expect to pay $10 to $50 per linear foot to install new gutters.

      • Roof Replacement: If your roof is visibly declining or shingles are falling off after another harsh New York winter, you may need to replace it. Unified is a leading distributor of TAMKO, GAF and Owens Corning roofing materials. Visit us or call 888-631-2131 to schedule a free estimate.
