Tips on Preparing a Siding Replacement Budget

Determining how much to spend on a siding project is an important decision for homeowners. After all, replacing your old siding can dramatically transform your home and make it much more appealing. The question is, how much should you budget for a siding project? Colonial Remodeling, the premier local siding contractor, shares factors to consider:

Siding Replacement

The Material You Choose

There are hundreds of materials in a range of colors and prices you can choose from. Vinyl and fiber cement are among the top choices for the majority of homeowners. Both of these have excellent energy-saving properties and unique looks that go well with a variety of home styles. The type of material you choose affects both your budget and your home’s value. Our experts at Colonial Remodeling can help you choose a material that meets your needs and is well within your price range.

The Cost of Labor

Not all siding contractors charge by the project, so it’s important to verify the payment terms with your hired professional. Generally, materials account for at least 50% of the entire project cost, so the remaining amount would be for labor. At Colonial Remodeling, before starting on a major project like a siding replacement, we offer our clients a free inspection and estimate. The inspection helps us to determine the extent of damage and work to be done on your home, allowing us to present you with an accurate estimate. This can give you an idea of how much the overall cost would be.

Additional Fees to Consider

Fees for the removal and disposal of the old siding are usually separate from the repairs themselves. Additionally, structural damage caused by mold and water, usually discovered after the old siding is removed, needs to be repaired before new siding can be installed. Other problems like inadequate insulation add to the total expense, so it’s important to prepare for these as well.
