Here at Siding Express, we believe in always being transparent with our customers, especially when it comes to pricing. That’s why when customers ask us, “How much does James Hardie cost?” We point them right to our website, which shows the average range for a James Hardie siding project is between $18,000 and $41,000.
But, why is there such a big range? Unfortunately, unless we know more specifics about your particular project, it’s hard for us to give a more accurate estimate. Continue reading to learn more about the different factors that affect the cost of James Hardie siding so you can start budgeting for your project.
The Products You Choose
One of the many reasons our customers love James Hardie siding is because the company offers dozens of different products, styles, and colors. Of course, each of these different options comes with a different price tag. When choosing which product makes the most sense for your home, you’ll want to keep your budget in mind, but there are other important things to consider as well.
The style of your home should play a role in which product you choose. If you have a cottage-style home, for example, you might opt for Hardie® Shingle Siding, which will perfectly complement your home’s design. When planning your project, our experts here at Siding Express can give you more information about each available product, along with pricing estimates to help you make the best decision for your home and your wallet.
The Size of Your Home
Another important factor in determining how much you’ll pay is the size of your home. In our experience, a 1500 sq ft home usually costs between $18,000 and $21,000 for James Hardie Lap Siding. That same project on a 3000 sq ft home, however, ranges between $35,000 and $41,000.
The bigger your home, the more materials we’ll need to do a full replacement. Thus, the more expensive the project will be.
The State of Your Current Siding
The condition of your current siding may make it easier or harder to remove. If your current siding requires extra work to remove, it will require more labor, which can increase the total cost of your siding project.
When we do an initial inspection of your siding, we’ll be able to give you a better idea of how much work it will take to remove your old siding and if that will impact the cost of the replacement.
The Addition of Extra Features
When updating your home’s siding, you might opt to make a few more changes to your home’s exterior at the same time for the best increase in curb appeal. For example, you might replace the fascia around your home, have the trim painted, etc.
Many times, our team can do these extra tasks while we’re doing your siding replacement, making it more convenient for you. The extra features you choose will be reflected in the total price of your project.
The Contractor You Choose
Finally, how much you’ll pay for James Hardie siding largely depends on who you hire for the job. Ideally, you want to find a contractor that charges fair, transparent fees, with no added surprise bills at the end of your project.
Here at Siding Express, we’re always upfront about how much you can expect to pay and will communicate with you if something changes during the course of your project. We also offer comprehensive financing options so you can get the siding of your dreams in a way that fits your budget.
