2022 Notice: Material Prices Are Surging

Demand for siding and other building materials has grown over the past year. And as a result, manufacturers are increasing materials prices. Prices have gone up 5% to 10% this year, and many parts of the country are experiencing long delivery times. If you're planning a building project, we recommend starting as early as possible in the season, preparing for potential price fluctuations, and allowing extra time to order materials.

How do you estimate vinyl siding?

Since vinyl siding is priced by square foot, you can estimate how much you'll need by measuring the sides of your house. You can get a decent estimate by multiplying the length of each side by the width, then adding those figures together. To get a bit more specific, you can then multiply the length of each window and door by their width, then subtract those numbers from the first figures you calculated to account for the areas on your house where there won't be any siding. 

Is vinyl siding easy to maintain? 

Maintaining vinyl siding is fairly straightforward, as it’s a durable and resilient material that doesn’t often chip or attract pests. You should clean it annually; pressure washing costs between $200 and $400. You can hire a professional vinyl siding cleaner to keep it in tip-top shape.
