The instructions on calculating the price of siding are clear and concise. The home remodeler will be able to use the information to make a decision on the materials necessary to get the attractive appearance desired for the home. As an added bonus, the increased value of the home will cover most of the cost of the siding remodel.

The calculation process is simple and entails the following steps to complete:

Step One

The first step of the calculation tool displays images of typical home architectural styles. The homeowner selects the image most closely resembling the architecture of the home. This gives the calculator an indication of the size of the home, thus the quantity of siding the project will require.

Once the style is selected, a map of the United States appears. Clicking on the region of the home’s location informs the calculator of the type of siding that best suits the region’s climate.

Step Two

The calculator will then ask the homeowner to select the style of siding to be used—perhaps clapboard or shingle, among others. The siding style is one of the cost variables in the price of siding.

Step Three

This step calls for the selection of the siding material desired and will offer the materials best suited to the climate of the home’s location.

Step Four

The last step asks if shutters are involved in the siding project.


Clicking the calculate button will result in the estimated cost of the new siding project based on the factors entered in steps one through four. The magic of the Siding Calculator Tool does not end here though. By moving the bar from one end of the scale to the other, alternative siding products are displayed, either raising or lowering the estimated costs of the siding project. Therefore, if the original selections for materials and styles of siding are beyond the scope of the budget, the cost estimate can be made to fit the budget constraints by moving through the many siding styles to arrive at an affordable and attractive siding solution.

This estimate is valuable information for the homeowner to have when contacting a contractor.
