The Cost of Vinyl Siding compared to Cedar Siding

Most people think that the cost of vinyl siding should be significantly less than cedar siding and they would be right… unless they get talked into paying too much for vinyl siding.  Let’s break it down and arm you with some knowledge.

Quality Vinyl Siding Costs Around 21% Less Than Cedar Siding INSTALLED

Using our own vinyl siding cost calculator and entering 2,000 exterior square feet (2,000 is the typical average) and we see the Industry Average is $11,000 for Quality Vinyl Siding and $14,000 for Lap Cedar Siding.  $11,000 is 78.57% of $14,000 thus giving us a 21.43% difference between the vinyl and cedar.

New eBook? Maybe. Homeowner’s Guide to Buying Vinyl Siding Installation Like a PRO!

Buying Vinyl Siding Installation Like a PRO! ???  You have our attention!

Homeowners are being asked if they would like inside information about buying vinyl siding released via an eBook.  The proposed book from the desk of Robert Bury (the founder of Siding4u, Contractors With Integrity & the soon to be released eSiding network).  Robert Bury (the author) has spent the better part of the past 25 years educating homeowner’s about vinyl siding, it’s benefits and how to get it without paying too much.

“I’ve reached a lot of people so far but there are still homeowners paying way too much and to companies that honestly don’t deserve the business, in my opinion.  In this book I’ve honed the whole process down to it’s core steps and procedures plus I’ve added several things people won’t find elsewhere online.” ~ Robert Bury

When asked why Robert doesn’t just release this information online he said, “Several companies don’t want this information out there.  And we’ve been attacked before and didn’t have the capital to defend ourselves, it almost destroyed our efforts.  This time we need to be prepared.  Some of these companies are not happy about losing sales to honest contractors and when you are talking about homeowners paying 2 to 3 times what the honest contractors get, we’re talking about big big money because we’re talking about 100’s to 1,000’s of homeowners not going with the charming and ‘seems-like-a-nice-guy’ crooked companies.”

So this is kind of a different twist – this book may never be released, unless enough people speak up and say they want it.  You can read more and cast your vote here.
