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

img_vinyl-siding-cost-comparison
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.

Vinyl Siding Prices Exposed via the Vinyl Siding Cost Calculator

Why Expose Vinyl Siding Prices?

There used to be a day when homeowners who were interested in vinyl siding could only get a ballpark vinyl siding price idea by inviting a siding salesman into their home. And then they really didn’t have any negotiating power because there wasn’t a baseline standard on how much vinyl siding should cost.  Unscrupulous vinyl siding salesmen (tin men, from the aluminum siding days) could then convince prospective siding consumers to overpay 2, 3 or even 4x as much as they should and when you are talking big ticket items like home remodels the price tag for vinyl siding could get enormous – and often did.  That all changed when our founder Robert Bury began educating homeowners about siding prices back in 1996.  Now in 2011, 15 years later, Mr. Bury’s vision of putting the power back in the consumers hands is a full blown reality.  In Mr. Bury’s words, “… I love the feeling of helping people I will never get a chance to meet.  I know that house siding isn’t the vehicle to world peace {joke} but if we all would govern ourselves with a little more in integrity and do what we know is right, the world would become and even sweeter place to live.   I’m just doing my part in an industry I happen to know a lot about.”

We thank you Mr. Bury (call me Robert is what he would say to that) you have been an inspiration to us all at Siding4u.com and the whole Siding Web™ group.  Here’s to another year of helping people we may never meet in 2011.

Cedar Siding STILL the Most Desired and it Costs Less than You Might Think

I want cedar siding but can’t afford it!?!?
What… really?

Many people don’t realize that cedar siding costs a lot less than most people think.  What most people do know is that cedar siding is highly desirable… (psst) that’s what virtually all the vinyl & fiber cement siding is modeled after.  How so many people just assume cedar siding is outside of their budget is somewhat of a common phenomenon.

But I though cedar siding was crazy expensive?.?.

Nope.  We’ve seen many estimates for vinyl siding and fiber cement siding that were well over 50% more than what cedar siding would have been.  Some of those bids were for legitimatly expensive products but most were for outrageously overpriced siding products and service.

The truth is… (continue reading…)

Actual Vinyl Siding Job with Detialed Price Breakdown

Want the REAL Details on a Vinyl Siding Job well check out the Two Story Face Lift – Vinyl Siding Details

Project Scope: There was a real rot issue that we dealt with by removing the bad portions (including all LP horizontal lap siding), re-sheeting, treating and sealing with Vulkem caulking. Then we installed Tyvek underlayment and sealed around the windows and doors with Tyvek tape. Thus, creating a very effective weather membrane under the soon to be installed new siding. Next was the installations of the siding, which was all performed flawlessly as usual. Then we pressure washed the gutters, eves and overhangs – painted the shutters to match the trim and reinstalled them – and did a final finish cleaning of the siding and jobsite.

The Problem with Vinyl Siding Prices & the Solution

orig_vinyl-shake-siding

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding cost and vinyl siding prices are still such a mystery to so many consumers but we are making great headway in changing that.
Why is this a problem?
It’s quite simple really, there are siding companies out there (mainly the big national & name brand endorsed ones) who are charging outrageous prices. Their siding costs so much it’s simply amazing anybody falls for it but that’s only because 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 and backed by honest companies. 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 salesman becomes insurmountable and rightly so. We give you that information with ball park vinyl siding prices, average vinyl siding prices and vinyl siding cost analysis pages. Our goal is to educate every consumer so THEY can make up their own minds rather than being pressured into overpaying for vinyl siding.
