Can someone give me a general idea of what I should expect to pay for the
labor to replacing siding (or fascia, corner boards, etc), not including the
Do people generally replace siding at a per board/piece cost or estimate the
amount of time and charge accordingly?
I'm just looking for ball-park figures, and in this case I would be dealing
with an independent contractor/sole proprietor. Of course this would vary by
region, so a range is fine.
The range is from about $150 to $5,000. It has been many years, but I used
to do some siding work. In today's dollars, I'd not consider a job for less
than $150. It does not pay to start the truck for less.
Factors to consider: Location. Will I be standing on the ground, ladder
jacks, or scaffolding to the fourth floor? Side of a mountain?
Condition of the material to be replaced. Chances of damage to other pieces?
Time spent searching for matching material, etc.
Get a price from the guy. If he is reputable, skilled, fair, you will be
hard pressed to find a better deal.
I just got a quote to replace two pieces one eight foot the other 10. The price
quoted was $125.00. Which is not bad if you consider that he has to pick up the
material drive here, un-load his ladders and tools.
