    Re: What does it cost to side a house

    Are you looking to buy material to do yourself or hiring it all out? Obviously there is substantial savings in doing it yourself. I have no idea on sq ft cost but among the bids I have seen it can vary wildly and the types of material (even vinyl) can differ in quality. I had bids ranging from 8k to almost twice that. I essentially have a 2 story home in terms of amount of material. A nice low ranch could be much cheaper! You could always go with cement siding (that bid was 30k! )

    there are also different grades of vinyl siding too, don't get the cheapest stuff, I have found it to be really brittle over time

    Totally true, better to get better quality, unless u are looking to sell in next 5 years. Not saying to put crap on, but maybe not top of the line. I don't remember what it was 6 years ago, used to side homes. Get a bid for "Craneboard". It is Vinyl siding with foam backing, very durable stuff and goes up quicker than normal vinyl.


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."
