Vinyl Siding Installation: How to Save When Using a Contractor

When you use a contractor, you eliminate DIY headaches. You also can save on the total project cost. Here's how:

  • Select affordable siding. Choose a style of vinyl siding that pleases you aesthetically but also is modestly priced. While some of the basic styles of vinyl siding cost around $1 and $2 per square foot, premium styles, such as vinyl shakes or shingles, can run between $6 to $8 per square foot.
  • Compare bids. Obtain at least three bids from qualified installers so you can identify which ones are competitive. Check with the installers' work references to help decide which one is right for the job.
  • Be flexible. Oftentimes, you can get a better price on installation if you are flexible on the completion date and agree to the contractor's timetable. In addition, prices during the off-season tend to be lower.
  • Keep the old. If your new siding can be installed over your home's existing siding, then you will save on having the old siding torn off your house and transported to the local landfill.

Although your goal may be to save as many dollars as possible on the project, be sure not to sacrifice installation quality. Solid installation of a good product should last for many years, saving you the most money in the long run.
