Cost to replace vinyl siding by style

The cost to replace vinyl siding varies by style. Clapboard—also called traditional lap—and Dutch lap are the cheapest and most popular vinyl siding styles. Vinyl log, brick, shake, and stone siding mimic the look of those materials at a much lower price.

Vinyl siding replacement cost by style
Siding style Average cost installed (per square foot)
Board-and-batten vinyl $5 – $9
Clapboard / traditional lap $4 – $7
Dutch lap $4 – $7
Insulated vinyl $6 – $12
Vertical vinyl $4 – $9
Vinyl brick $5 – $11
Vinyl log $4 – $8
Vinyl shake $4 – $10
Vinyl stone $5 – $11

Board-and-batten vinyl siding

Board-and-batten vinyl siding costs $5 to $9 per square foot installed. Board-and-batten siding features wide vertical panels, with the gaps between covered by thin vertical strips of wood called battens. Vinyl board-and-batten panels are manufactured with the batten strips already in place to prevent leaks.

Clapboard siding

Clapboard vinyl siding costs $4 to $7 per square foot installed. Clapboard, also called traditional lap siding, is one of the most popular, classic styles and features horizontal planks that overlap slightly to create a shadow that adds visual depth.

Dutch lap vinyl siding

Dutch lap vinyl siding costs $4 to $7 per square foot installed. Dutch lap siding features long, horizontal planks with a notched top section that is slightly concave, creating a deeper shadow over the next plank to add visual dimension to the home.

Insulated vinyl siding

Insulated vinyl siding costs $6 to $12 per square foot installed. Insulated vinyl features built-in foam insulation attached directly to the back of each plank, saving you the cost of installing insulation separately.

Vertical vinyl siding

Vertical vinyl siding costs $4 to $9 per square foot installed and features boards that run from the top to bottom instead of from side to side. Vertical siding highlights architectural features, creates more visual dimension, and gives the home a historic look.

Vinyl brick siding

Vinyl brick siding costs $5 to $11 per square foot installed and resembles the look of real brick at a lower cost. Vinyl brick typically highlights areas on a home with clapboard or Dutch lap siding. In comparison, traditional brick siding costs $8 to $18 per square foot installed.

Vinyl log siding

Vinyl log siding costs $4 to $8 per square foot installed and gives the home a log cabin look without the maintenance requirements of real wood. Unlike natural lumber, vinyl logs are not prone to rot or insects and do not need to be sealed regularly.

In comparison, real log siding costs $5 to $15 per square foot installed.

Vinyl shake siding

Vinyl shake siding costs $4 to $10 per square foot installed and features an embossed wood grain that mimics the look of natural wood shakes or shingles. In comparison, cedar shake siding costs $6 to $16 per square foot installed.

Vinyl stone siding

Vinyl stone siding costs $5 to $11 per square foot installed and is often used as an accent in combination with clapboard or Dutch lap siding to create a more upscale look. In comparison, natural stone siding costs $10 to $45 per square foot installed.

Factor Average cost (per square foot)
Materials & supplies $2 – $6

Total cost $4 – $12

The following factors affect the project cost:

  • Home size & design – The larger your home, the more materials and labor the project requires. Costs are highest for multi-story homes with complex designs.

  • Vinyl quality & grade – Thicker, premium vinyl siding costs up to twice as much as basic builder's grade siding but withstands extreme temperatures, provides better noise reduction, and is less prone to sagging and fading.

  • Old siding removal – Old siding removal costs $0.70 to $2.00 per square foot. Confirm your estimate also includes the cost of disposal.

  • Insulation Replacing the insulation costs $1.00 to $4.50 per square foot, depending on the type, material, and R-value.

  • Siding repairs – If only a small area of the siding is damaged, siding repair costs $2 to $14 per square foot or $200 to $1,100 on average. However, matching the color may not be possible if the existing siding is older and has faded.

Vinyl siding FAQs

Does vinyl siding add value to a home?

Vinyl siding adds home value and provides an 82% return on investment (ROI), according to the latest Remodeling Impact Report from the National Association of Realtors. New siding also increases your home's curb appeal and energy efficiency.

How long does vinyl siding last?

Vinyl siding lasts 30 to 40 years on average, but with frequent cleaning and maintenance it can last more than 60 years. The lifespan of vinyl siding depends on the local climate and the amount of sun exposure the home receives.

Consider replacing vinyl siding if there are cracks, holes, warped boards, or if the color is significantly fading.

How do you maintain vinyl siding?

Vinyl siding requires minimal maintenance compared to other siding materials. Clean the siding at least once a year with a garden hose, soapy water, and a soft cloth or long-handled soft-bristle brush. Inspect the siding regularly for cracks and stains to ensure leaks behind the surface don't cause further damage.

Pressure washing a house costs $170 to $300+. When pressure washing vinyl siding, start with a low-pressure level to ensure the siding does not crack.

Can you paint vinyl siding?

Yes, you can paint vinyl siding if it is in good condition. The cost to paint vinyl siding is $1 to $3 per square foot of surface area. New paint updates your home's look and extends the life of faded vinyl siding but may void the manufacturer's warranty.
