Siding is an important part of your home’s exterior. It protects your house from the elements, but it also gives your home its appearance and style. A large portion of your home’s curb appeal comes from the siding, how it looks, and what condition it is in. Siding can be made of many different materials, including those that come in traditional lap siding like wood, vinyl, and fiber cement, as well as other materials, such as stucco and brick.
Siding can have a wide range of associated costs, as each material has a different price point. And, some will be easier or more difficult to install than others. For basic wood siding, labor costs run around $40 to $50 an hour for installation.
