When a building requires a complete replacement of the existing siding it will usually require the services of a professional contractor. Though some homeowners are able to tackle the installation of vinyl or even wood siding, generally it is not a standard DIY project.
The average home, according to the United States Census, is 2200 square feet and size, with a two-story design and footprint of 25'x45'. To determine the amount of siding needed for such a project requires a bit of simple math. The length of all four sides of the house are measured, and this figure is multiplied by the height of the walls. This means that the average home would require (25+25+45+45X20= 2800) 2800 of siding materials.
