What Affects the Cost of a Siding Job?

Siding Material

The most important factors to consider for siding are the composition, durability, and appearance of the product. Different siding materials have different qualities and will be priced accordingly. Two great options when you’re siding with us? Vinyl and James Hardie fiber cement siding. 

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl is a popular choice for homeowners on a budget. Vinyl siding is highly durable and resistant to rot, pests, and a high-moisture climate (perfect for Missouri weather!) Its durability also makes it low-maintenance; a light wash every now and then will keep your home’s exterior looking great for years to come. Another benefit of vinyl siding? It comes in a variety of styles, textures, and colors for easy customization, so you can create a look you love. 

Generally, vinyl siding will cost $1-$8 per square foot. With installation costs factored into a siding job for a 2,000 square foot home, that will ultimately cost approximately $2,000 – $16,000. Mid-range vinyl siding projects are estimated to recoup 80.7% of their initial cost.

Ultimately, selecting vinyl siding is an easy way to boost your curb appeal without breaking the bank.

James Hardie Siding

James Hardie is an industry leader in fiber cement siding composition, and a wonderful choice for anyone looking to invest in high-quality, durable siding for the long haul. Due to ColorPlus technology, James Hardie’s paint lifespan is three times longer than that of vinyl siding, making it a great choice for homeowners who want to make a long-term investment in their home’s exterior. Specifically engineered for Midwestern climates and extreme weather, James Hardie fiber cement siding is fire resistant, pest resistant, rot and warp-resistant, making it capable of standing up to any weather Indiana can throw at it.

Because of its premium composition and long term benefits, a James Hardie installation is priced higher than vinyl counterparts. With an average cost of $5 – $12 per square foot, a 2,000 square foot home with installation costs will add up to $11,000 to $24,000. James Hardie has also been deemed the best product for ROI for twelve years by Remodeling Magazine.

If you want to drastically transform your home with a top-notch product without going over your budget, James Hardie fiber cement siding may be right for you. With an average of an 84% ROI, James Hardie is hard to beat.


The area that you live in will affect the price of siding – especially James Hardie siding – being put on your house. This is similar to home values; in areas where home values are higher, it is typically more expensive to install James Hardie. Every market is different and the market that you are in will affect the price of your home’s siding project.


Did you know that the season you choose to reside your home in will affect the cost of your installation? When you install during peak siding season in the spring and summer when contractors are busiest, you may be running up costs you could save by having your installation done in the fall or winter.

Labor Costs

The size and shape of your home will greatly affect your cost of labor. Elaborate architectural details on your home look unique and beautiful, but they may also make siding more difficult to install for your contractor’s team. Be aware that your residing cost may differ from your neighbor’s depending on the size and shape of your home.
