you will get your self in trouble !!! your number one concern is price. watch out !! the person who is most concerned about price only is the most likely to get burned... What grade of siding what type of under layments, starters strips, finish trims, capping, debris removed, existing removed? Insulation? house wraps? type of window besides size, type of frame, besides low-e energy star qualified? tax credit qualified? Too much info ? get three or more estimates, do more research other than price. know what grades quality's exist know what you want, know what is included in the price more important, what is not included.

Agreed. We couldn't even give you a ballpark price if we wanted to. There are way too many variables to account for. What type of siding is probably the biggest question I have. Hopefully not vinyl or aluminum (research other questions on vinyl and aluminum sidings to find out why they are such a huge scam). One story or two? Existing siding type? What type of backing material and vapor barrier do you have currently and do they need to be replaced? Removal of old siding required (I recommend it)? Etc.


Research contractors in your area to narrow down to a few with good reputations that install quality products. Then get estimates. Don't use price as your deciding factor other than to throw out someone who is way higher or way lower than everyone else. Look at the contractor and how well you get along with him/her, how good their reputation is, and if they have experience doing the work you need done. You can have 2 of the following 3, but not all 3: Low Price, Customer Service, or a Good Product. Which is the least important? You can, on rare occassion, find a good product cheap but with bad service and poor installation. Likewise you can get great service with a junk product (vinyl siding). Or you can pay fairly to get a good installation backed by a warranty on a good product.
