Vinyl siding is an man made engineered product, manufactured primarily from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin that is installed on the outside of homes in place of wood siding, fiber cement, aluminium or engineered siding.
Siding estimates are calculated using two steps. The first is the square footage of the area to be sided. The second is the number of accessories, window wraps, door wraps, specialty siding or upgraded trim required to complete the project.
The first step is to determine the square footage of the areas to have siding (not the square footage of the home) installed on the home.
Take that amount and multiply it by $3.00 a sq foot. The amount you arrived at will include tear off of the old siding corners, disposal, decking inspection, new moisture barrier, starter strip, j-channel, builder grade siding and finish trim.
The second step is to add in all of the additional charges that apply to your specific home. Does the existing siding need to be removed? How many gable vents need to be replaced? How many windows and doors need to be wrapped? Are you upgrading to a thicker or designer siding? Do you want to upgrade to larger corner post?
A typical 2 story 2000 sq foot home in St. Louis has 3400 square feet of surface area to install vinyl siding on. 3400 sq feet x $3.00 a sq foot is $10,200.00
This style of home usually has 3 gable vents, 1 double garage door, 1 single entry door, 6 double windows, 5 single windows and a sliding glass door to be wrapped. That is an additional $1,760.00
$10,200.00 + $1760.00= $11,960.00 for an average siding contract in St Louis, Missouri.
Properly installed vinyl siding needs little to no maintenance. Depending on the location of the home, vinyl siding will need to be washed every few years. Homes with vinyl siding in St. Louis average about once every 7 – 10 years. At this time inspecting and applying caulking as needed is recommended.
Warranties for vinyl siding range from 10 years up to “lifetime” depending on the manufacturer. The warranty covers color loss and manufacturer defects. Some manufacturers will allow a one time transfer of warranties to the next owner.
Fiber cement siding is an man made product, manufactured primarily from cement reinforced with cellulose fibers formed to mimic the look of wood siding, aluminium or engineered siding for the exterior of your home or building.
Maintenance for fiber cement siding depends on if you installed primed or pre-painted siding on your home.
Pre-painted siding needs to be washed every few years up to its warranty of 15 years. After that time period the maintenance depends on the paint installed on the siding.
Primed siding needs to be painted right after it’s installed on the home. The manufacturer of the paint will determine how long until the siding needs to be repainted.
Engineered siding is a man made product that combines water resistant waxes, zinc borate and adhesive resins formed to resemble wood grain siding. The siding is then coated with a “paint” that is bonded to the final product.
Maintenance for engineered siding is as simple as washing it once a year (or as needed) with a garden hose. Engineered siding is warrantied for 50 years.
