Vinyl Siding Installation Costs Can Vary From Contractor To Contractor

While it might be obvious why different brands and styles of vinyl siding have different prices, it is not always as apparent why vinyl siding installation costs often vary from contractor to contractor. After all, doesn't it make sense that all siding contractors would charge the same price for installing the same style of siding on the same house?

Vinyl Siding Installation Costs: Why They Vary from Contractor to Contractor

  1. A contractor who specializes in vinyl siding installation may be able to finish a job faster than a general contractor, and can therefore charge you less money to complete the work.
  2. Although you might assume that a large construction company would cost more than an individual contractor, the opposite is sometimes true. A crew of several workers can often operate faster than a "one-man-show" because a larger crew can simultaneously position a person at the cutting station and someone else on the ladder, while two others are installing the siding panels. This efficiency can be difficult for a installer who is working alone to achieve. And, as you know, time is money!
  3. Sometimes a cost estimate is influenced by how much work the contractor needs--or doesn't need. That is why it is important to solicit at least three bids from different siding installers for your project. Although you may want to choose the least expensive one, be cautious of abnormally low bids that seem too good to be true.

When comparing vinyl siding installation estimates, make sure that all the contractors have used the same project specifications (expected completion time, siding style, etc.) so that you know you are getting a true apples-to-apples comparison. Regardless of the estimated project cost, you should still check on a contractor's references and work experience before signing a contract.
