I don't know why you are worrying about hourly rate - you are far better off getting a firm bid for the work. Paying by the hour just promotes slow work, and YOU are taking all the $ risk for weather delays, hungover employees, coffee and smoke breaks, delays (or planning failure) in going to get tools and materials and such that they forgot to bring, etc.

For a Handyman repair probably typically $30-50/hr in your area, for a siding company probably around $40-60/hr billing rate - higher end in your case the closer you get to Boston or Hanover, cheaper in most outlying areas.

Normal installation cost (not including materials) with normal house (not too much complexity or unusually high number of doors or windows) probably around $2-5/SF for vinykl or aluminum or wood lap siding, depending on local labor rates and on whether an underlayment or foam board is being installed with it. More for fancier sidings and shakes. And on whether this includes tearoff of the old or not - typically around $0.50-1.00/SF as part of an installation job.
