Installing new vinyl siding is a significant investment. With that in mind, you’ll want to get the most accurate siding estimate you can. Unfortunately, some contractors will jack up the price of your project to earn some quick cash. Thankfully, it is possible to avoid such a rip-off.
In this article, V. Nanfito Roofing & Siding shares valuable tips to help you obtain a fair and accurate siding estimate.
- Quality – When choosing a siding material, don’t prioritize price at the expense of quality. Low-cost products may seem tempting from a financial standpoint, but they’ll cause you more trouble in the long run. Look for siding products that are durable and long-lasting. You may have to pay a little more on the front end, but high-quality siding will last longer and require fewer repairs over the years, saving you money in the long run.
- Timing – Spring and summer are usually the busiest construction months, which can make hiring a siding contractor a bit more costly than usual. With that in mind, try to schedule your project during an off-season month, as you may be able to get a better deal.
- Understand Your Home’s Size – The size of your home will of course have a big effect on your siding estimate. This is because more square footage equates to more material and more construction hours. By understanding the size of your home, you’ll be able to catch a contractor who’s trying to pull a fast one on you.
- Location – The design of your home also affects your siding estimate. If your home has multiple stories or hard-to-access areas, installing the siding will require more labor and equipment, making the installation more expensive.
