How much does siding repair cost?

Professional siders can make repairs to siding on homes, multiunit buildings, commercial spaces or offices. Siding is the final layer on the exterior walls of a home. It protects a structure against the elements, keeping out rain and snow and providing insulation from the cold. Siding protects a building’s wood framing from mildew and keeps out pests. When siding is damaged, it’s important to repair it to safeguard the integrity of a building’s structure.

Siding also adds aesthetic value to a home. The color, type and material of siding define a home’s style. Siding professionals can repair water damage, pest damage, dings and dents, large cracks or holes, peeling, mold or mildew, or discoloration. Pros help with major siding damage as well as minor cosmetic concerns. Several factors affect the cost of siding repair.

Type of siding

Homeowners have a variety of siding options, depending on their budget and their desired aesthetic. Vinyl tends to be the least expensive, while natural and manufactured stone are typically the priciest. Stonework requires the skilled labor of a mason, a trade that has a higher level of specialized training and commands a higher wage than a standard siding professional. Here are the most popular siding options:

  • Vinyl siding is an affordable choice and comes in a range of colors and styles. It replicates the look of wood and other siding materials at a lower cost. Vinyl is lighter, easier to work with and less time-consuming to install than other types. It also has low maintenance costs and is durable. Vinyl is a popular choice all around.

  • Wood shingles, siding or shakes are beautiful and often selected to achieve a certain traditional aesthetic. Wood requires maintenance in the form of paint or stain and is more prone to rot or insects (such as termites) than manufactured products. Cedar is favored for being more resistant to decay and bugs. Wood is less fire-resistant than other siding types.

  • Fiber cement is a durable, eco-friendly siding option. Hardie board is the most common name brand of fiber cement siding, and like the name implies, this product is hardy and fire-resistant. Like vinyl, it can be made to replicate natural siding materials and is made in a wide range of colors. It costs more than vinyl.

  • Stone and brick are beautiful and durable but costly. Masons work with natural brick and stone. These professionals are specially trained in their trade and, therefore, charge higher rates. However, it’s important to hire someone skilled in masonry when choosing stone or brick siding to ensure lasting results.

  • Aluminum siding is typically the least expensive choice for siding. Often it is selected for commercial use. It is durable and easy to maintain. One major downside is that it dents and scratches easily.

Damage location

The location of damage to siding on a building affects the repair costs. Often siding is damaged near the ground. Alex Bello of Statewide Roofing & General Contractor in Atlanta, Georgia, says this is especially true of wood siding, which draws moisture up from the earth, leading to mildew and rot if the wood is not properly maintained. If the damage is located on a second story or if special equipment is required to access the repair site, costs are generally higher. Here are three examples from Statewide Roofing & General Contractor showing how location affects overall costs to repair siding:

  • Replace one to five wood siding boards at ground level: $150–$300

  • Replace one to five wood siding boards 30 feet up: $150–$600

  • Replace three pieces of wood siding damaged by a nesting squirrel 45 feet up near the roofline: $800, including rental of a special 60-foot ladder to access the site

Labor and material costs

The cost of siding repair depends on the materials on the building, the cost of labor in the region, the size of the damage and the location of the damage. Most siding repair jobs for Statewide Roofing & General Contractor are about 10 square feet and cost about $200–$300. These types of repairs are usually to replace pieces of missing siding or to repair minimal damage. Here are a few examples of labor and materials costs from Statewide Roofing & General Contractor:

  • Vinyl siding: $3–$4 per square foot for materials alone

  • Hardie board fiber cement siding: $5–$6 per square foot for materials

  • Repairs to 200-square-foot area with both wood and Hardie board siding: $2,000.

    • The customer had a leak around his chimney. Statewide Roofing & General Contractor found water leaking from the corner board and wood siding. The contractors removed all the siding around the chimney, replaced the rotten plywood underneath, and installed new underlayment and new Hardie board on top.
