Cost to Install Different Siding Materials

The most popular siding materials in Lancaster, PA are vinyl siding, fiber cement, and composite siding. When installed by an expert contractor, all three can provide you decades of reliable performance and gorgeous curb appeal. Let’s explore the different materials and the average cost to install them:

Premium Vinyl Siding

There is a big difference between the heaviest gauge luxury siding we install from brands like Provia, Mastic, and CertainTeed and the lesser-quality builder grade vinyl. Vinyl is a practical and budget-friendly option and is the most common siding material all across the country.

 

Pros:

  • Vinyl is the Least Expensive Material
  • Comes in a Wider Variety of Colors than Ever
  • 25 to 30 Year Fade Warranty on Dark Colors
  • Lifetime warranty on the product
  • Easy to Clean
  • Longest lasting siding

 

Cons:

  • Has the Vinyl Look Which Some Homeowners Don’t Like
  • Can Be Cut, Chipped or Damaged

The most cost-effective siding option

 

Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is a luxury siding material with a distinct wood look. A popular option to upgrade both vinyl siding and to replace wood siding, this material does come at a higher price point than vinyl. James Hardie is the big name brand behind this luxury siding material that you may have heard of.

Pros:

  • Stands Out Compared to Vinyl
  • Beautiful and Bright Color Options
  • Has a 15-Year Warranty on Paint
  • Can Replicate the Look of Wood Siding

 

Cons:

  • Can Deteriorate If Paint Isn’t Maintained
  • Can Crack and Break

Can be as much as twice the price of vinyl siding

My uncle found you online and suggested you to my grandparents. They are thrilled with the work you did and would recommend you to anyone asking for a good door repair service. They just got their bill in the mail and were relieved to see it didn’t cost an arm and a leg. 10/10 would recommend.

We had windows installed by Choice 9 years ago. Not a single issue. So when we needed a door we went right back to them. Excellent customer service and so professional! If you want quality work go to Choice!!

Since we were so impressed with the service, installation and quality of our sliding door some years ago, we knew we wanted to contact Choice again when we were ready to remodel our kitchen.The entire team at Choice genuinely cared about our project as if it was their own home. Multiple staff members checked in on us during the temporary business shutdown due to COVID-19 which occurred mid-project.It was a pleasure working with Choice and we are very pleased with the results. They made our satisfaction a priority, and we are grateful for the relationships that were built along the way.
