I have very specific look I’m hoping to create, but like the average homeowner, have a limited budget. Cost of siding was the last piece of the puzzle. Thank heavens for Google and thank heavens for your [siding] estimate calculator!”

  • Vinyl Siding Prices - the problem & the solution

        by's Founder, Robert Bury on Vinyl Siding Prices
    Vinyl siding cost breakdowns and installed vinyl siding prices are still such a mystery to so many consumers but we are making great headway in changing that.
    alternate text
    Robert Bury's Founder
    Why is this a problem?
    It's quite simple really, there are some siding companies out there who are charging outrageous prices. Their siding costs so much it's simply amazing anybody falls for it but that's only because some people don't know how much it should cost. How do they sell at their outrageous prices? They trick the homeowners with high pressure sales tactics into thinking they are getting better products that are installed more professionally.
    In my experience: this is absurd, dishonest and simply untrue. I have seen more shoddy jobs, irate customers, low grade products and sub-standard workmanship by these sorts of companies than all others combined.

    So what's the solution?
    In one word - education. If consumers are made aware what average prices are and how much siding should cost - the task of the high pressure, overpriced siding salesperson becomes insurmountable and rightly so. We give you that information with our ball park vinyl siding cost calculator, average vinyl siding prices based on specific products and our vinyl siding cost analysis spreadsheet pages. Our goal is to educate every siding consumer so THEY can make up their own minds rather than being pressured into overpaying for vinyl siding.
