The Average Cost of Replacing Your Siding With Hardie Board

The price of your Hardie Board installation project can vary by several thousand dollars. However, as a good rule of thumb, you can expect to pay between $7 and $13 per square foot. 

That means a 1500 sq ft home might cost around $21,000 to install, while a 3000 sq ft home would be closer to $35,000 and up. 

Here at Siding Express, we believe it’s important to be transparent about pricing, which is why we will always give you a written estimate before you commit to a project. 

What Impacts the Cost of Your Hardie Board Installation?

Why does the cost of installing Hardie Board vary so much? There are a few factors that impact the total cost you’ll pay, which we detail more below. 

The Intricacy of Your Design

One of the many reasons that Hardie Board siding is so popular with local homeowners is that it makes it easier for you to create a beautiful exterior design. In fact, we can install Hardie Board planks in a number of different ways to create a unique design that will make your home stand out. 

Generally speaking, the more intricate your design, the more complex the project will be and the more it will cost. Some designs require more cuts, which means using different tools and techniques, leading to a higher final cost. 

The Hardie Board Style You Choose

Along those same lines, the style of Hardie Board you choose will impact the total cost of your project. Offering options like shingle-style designs, vertical and horizontal planks, and scalloped edges, Hardie Board siding comes in countless colors and textures, all of which vary in price. 

Are you still trying to decide which style is right for your home? Ask us for a personalized home design to get a better sense of which option you like best.

The Size of Your Home

As noted above, the bigger your home, the more expensive it will be to install new siding because it will require more materials. Beyond that, homes larger than single stories will also cost more. 

Two- or three-story homes not only require more materials, but they also require more manpower to complete, further increasing the price. 

The Contractor You Hire

When you’re planning your siding replacement project, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is who to hire for the job. Of course, all contractors have different pricing structures, so it’s not a bad idea to request a few quotes before moving forward. 

Our goal here at Siding Express is to offer fair pricing to our customers, so you can update your home at a price that fits within your budget. We also offer financing options so it’s easier than ever to plan for your siding replacement project. 

The State of Your Existing Siding

Finally, your current siding can impact how much you’ll pay for your Hardie Board. The more difficult it is to remove your old siding, the more labor your project will require. This can increase costs. 

Before starting on your project, our team will come out to inspect the state of your current siding to help prevent unexpected cost increases from happening.
