Question DetailsAsked on 6/2/2011

What's a ballpark cost for new siding in belmont ma?

I have a two-story, 2,000 sf house with wood shingles, in Belmont (greater Boston area) MA. The contractors don't want to guess; they want to see the house (perfectly understandable). I just need a round number so I can figure out whether I can afford to buy the house plus the work that this house is going to need in the near future (the inspection turned up a lot more issues than we hoped), and time is of the essence. Thanks!

$3,000-$10,000 for materials, depending on how fancy and how much trim, and if any of the sheathing underneath is damaged etc.

About 2-4 weeks for two guys at $15-50 an hour, which comes out to $2,400 - $15,000 for the labor.

You see it depends on how it is handled.

Removing siding usually reveals other problems underneath, or it is also time to do the windows and soffits at the same time. Will you use wood or hardyplank (concretet board), or vinyl which some people hate. Some companies will try to get you to sign a contract for the siding and windows only at about $50,000, and they will NOT be including any carpentry repairs which may be required. So be careful. It's all about the carpentry skills if you intend to maintain the wood, and even if not wood, there is probably wood underneath. Depends on the age of the house. You need someone knowledgeable to give you a detailed review of the situation, and maybe some limited investigative demo before you tear it all off. Use extreme caution.
