We recieved some damage from a hail storm and needed only a little over 150 sq ft of siding replaced,a decorative gable vent and 8" of aluminum fascia. The insurace gave us $616.91 w/depr to cover the job. You can imagine how upset I was when the job was almost $1,000.00 over. I would love to know if anyone can tell me who took me to the cleaners my insurance or my contractor.

Hey people listen up.
If you want cheap prices expect the following things to happen.
1. Cheap materials means you will replace them in the near future.
2. A company that goes out of business because they don't have a profit.
3. A project which isn't finished because the contractor runs out of money.
4. A poor looking job because the contractor can't afford the proper tools or sharp blades for old saws.
5. A project which takes a lot longer than it is supposed to because they can't figure out a problem or they are skipping from job to job to find money to survive.
6. Workers who smoke, leave cigarette butts in your yard, show their fat bellies, steal your beer, and leave oil stains on your driveway.

I have more of these examples, but I hope you now get the point.
DON'T BUY THE CHEAP BID IT WILL COST YOU MORE IN THE END.
QUALITY CONTRACTORS HAVE REAL EXPENSES, RESPECT THEM AND THEIR PRICE, IT IS THAT WAY FOR A REASON

I used to be a subcontractor in Metarie,LA 5 yrs ago , in my exp back then we charged $80- $120+ per sqaure just for labor , and $6- $10 labor per linear ft. of sophit and fascia , Now add overhead and cost of materials + recent inflation flucuations , and siding price difference per state and that would be about what you want your total cost to be , anything else being extra , hope this helps

I looks like from other comments that this bid is not out of line but according you the websites estimation it is. This company claims it has a life time warranty. It just still seems like a lot of money. We trying to decide if we should just repaint our metal siding or bite the bullet and get the vinyl siding.

That quote of 22,672 was for 24 sq of siding,soffit,fascia and gutters. It also included for those of you who just look at price fifteen replacement windows. If you break it down 15 windows @400.00 = 6000.00
22672.-6000.= 16672/24sq=695.per square for norandex siding if polar wall or generations series siding in a one step (laminated insulation) process its a fair price

I rec'd a few estimates for vinyl siding. They seem to be all over the place...the low end at about $7500, the high end $18679. I have a ranch style home, but my entire house is not vinyl, I also have some parts brick. My quote was to remove the current vinyl, put up gutters, replace the soffits, facsia (sp*). It just seems like a very hig price.

Some materials which look a lot like vinyl siding are no longer classified as vinyl. Prices can vary by a factor of five to one. A cheap Alcoa panel compared to a Crane or Nailite shingle pattern. Cranes portfolio cost three times what a Reynolds builder panel cost and is worth every penny of it. Check warranty before you buy any siding. Look at exclusions. Many exclude damage from sunlight and extremes of temperature. Installation cost vary by state. By brother pays his men in Ill. 45% less than we pay on West Coast.

I haven’t sided a house myself in a while. But back in the 80's and through the beginning of the 90's a small contractor could figure $100 a square for materials and $100- 150 for profit. I have seen those numbers double due to the cost increases in material and labor but $940 per square does seem high - even with gutters. I look for numbers somewhere around $450 a square on the low side and $650 a square on the high side depending on the size and complexity of the job (more then one story – staging setup and moving around- trim detail)and overhead of the contractor.
