How to Figure the Cost of Vinyl Siding

A house clad in vinyl siding requires much more than just horizontal vinyl siding panels. Vinyl siding requires inside and outside corner trim, door and window trim, starter strips so that the lowest row of siding also has a lap, vents, and other accessories that significantly bump of the price of a vinyl siding remodel job.

As a rough rule of thumb, vinyl siding costs between $3 and $7 a square foot without the above-mentioned items. Generally, thicker siding is more expensive--and durable--than thinner siding and lies at the higher end of that price range.

With those numbers in mind, the estimated cost of vinyl siding for a single-level home with materials and labor and using an industry average of $5.50 a square foot are as follows:

  • 2,000 square feet: $11,000
  • 2,500 square feet: $13,750
  • 3,000 square feet: $16,500
  • 3,500 square feet: $19,250
  • 4,000 square feet: $22,000

These numbers are estimates only--actual contractors bids may vary by region, type of siding used, and labor for removal and disposal of old vinyl siding.
