When log vinyl siding is too rich for your pocketbook

These tips and tricks can help you lower the cost of your vinyl siding installation:

  1. Look at the quality. Not all vinyl siding is created equal. High-end siding can range up to 0.055 inches thick, while cheaper brands might be 0.035 inches thick. The amount of insulation in your siding can drive up the cost as well. If you live in an area where you can get away with thinner siding, you can slash your costs on materials.
  2. Compare prices. Look for discounts, coupons, rebates and promotions offered by manufacturers or home improvement stores. It never hurts to ask about the discounts that aren't advertised on the floor, such as steep cuts on custom log vinyl siding that a previous customer didn't pick up.
  3. Install it yourself. If you have some home improvement savvy, installing vinyl siding on your own can be a good way to cut costs. According to CostHelper, do-it-yourself panels can cost about $1 per square foot, but if you hire a contractor, the cost jumps to $2 to $7 or more per square foot.
  4. Hire in the off-season. If you aren't handy enough to install siding yourself, consider hiring a contractor during the off-season. This is the time when business slows down and a contractor is likely to offer a nice discount for the work.

You can have the richness of log vinyl siding without the rich price tag. Do your research, compare prices, and find the many ways you can bring down the sticker shock of your bottom line.
