What is Siding Installation?
Siding installation involves attaching wood siding, vinyl siding, among other materials, to the exterior of your home. Installers must cut the siding panels to fit the exterior wall, and they must attach the siding to the support studs that make up the house frame.
Quick Tips from Smart Reno Express for your Exterior Siding Project
Like many home improvement projects, you can find information, including a exterior siding installation guide, online. These installation tips are great places to start if you want to get your hands dirty. However, we recommend hiring a professional to make certain that this vital job gets done correctly.
You will want to make absolutely sure that you find a contractor with exterior siding experience; someone who knows how to install a house wrap and starter strip, which are as important for weather protection as the exterior siding itself.
How Much Will Exterior Siding Cost?
Pricing depends heavily on the material you choose. Please see industry pricing averages below (exact prices will vary):
|Vinyl Siding Installation||Materials: $1.50/square foot||Installation: $4.00/square foot|
|Fiber Cement Siding Installation||Materials: $3.00/square foot||Installation: $7.00/square foot|
|Engineered Wood Siding Installation||Materials: $5.00/square foot||Installation: $4.00/square foot|
How to Keep Your Exterior Siding Costs Low
At a minimum, your siding installation project will need to meet building codes. You could get a siding installation guide and try it yourself, but you really do not want to cut corners on this project. You can use a bid comparison service like Smart Reno Express to find a contractor who can meet your budget.
Exterior Siding Errors to Avoid
Whether you do it yourself or get a contractor, you will want to make sure that you avoid common mistakes:
- For example, you will need to correctly stagger vertical siding, but you do not want to block airflow in the process.
- Seemingly simple things like properly using the hammer and not breaking off nail heads is also crucial but often trivialized. You should also remember that you are not just installing siding, you need furring (to create a moisture barrier,) and you need to align everything properly. This is especially important for board & batten siding.
