What is on there existing and what are the general dimensions of the garage?

Answered 6 years ago by WoWHomeSolutions


It depends on the type of material you will be using, how many square footage, is there any special details such as lights,windows, outlets that need trimming or covers for. What type of insulation you will be using, also you have to figure labor into the budget as well.

You should be able to get a mid grade siding installed on the garage for about $3.25 to $3.75 a square foot. How to measure for siding to be installed on your home or garage. Since most homes have 4 sides to them or elevations you will need to measure the width and the height of each elevation. It's best to do a diagram along with what type of items are on the house such as outlets, lights, what type of corners are needed inside and outside, address block. Once you have measured the elevations you will multiply the width times the height and that will tell you the square footage needed. In the roofing and siding industry a 10' x 10' area is 100 square feet or 1 square. Most garages are 8' high and 24' wide so you would have 192 square ft per wall now you need to figure the square feet of doors and window deduct that from your total square footage for all four walls then add 10% for waste. An average 2 car garage hipped is around 7 squares or 700 square feet if you have gables it could be as much as 12 to 13 squares. You can multiply the total of square feet by $3.25 to $3.75 and that will give you a good idea of what your garage should cost to use a mid grade vinyl siding.

Best of luck with your project
