How much is vinyl siding by type?

There are three main categories of vinyl siding, and they all relate to how the siding looks on your home. These categories include vertical, horizontal, and shake siding. Within those three categories are other types that include smooth, vertical (also called board and batten), log, insulated, and others. As you research, “How much does vinyl siding cost?” remember much of your price will depend on which type you choose. Here are some common vinyl siding types to help you determine the style that will work best for your home.

Shake siding

Shake siding mimics the look of real cedar or shake. This siding is typically installed in a classic linear direction or may be staggered to add texture and aesthetic appeal. The siding cost per square foot for shake averages between $4 and $9.

Insulated siding

Insulated siding costs around 50% more than standard, hollow-back vinyl siding. It includes foam to keep the air warm or cool inside your home and provides a higher resale value and noise reduction. This siding costs approximately $4 to $12 per square foot.

Vertical vinyl

This attractive vinyl siding adds unique appeal and is often called board and batten. It has a rustic, wood-like texture and costs more to install due to special furring strips that must be added underneath. This siding costs between $3 and $8 per square foot.

Vinyl log siding

Also called clapboard, vinyl log siding has overlapped boards and a realistic wood-like finish that resembles a log-built home or cabin. This siding recreates the look of hand-carved wood pieces and costs $3 to $6 per square foot on average.

Smooth

Choose smooth vinyl siding to give your home a clean, modern, and contemporary aesthetic. This sleek and ultra-modern siding comes in at an average of around $2 to $6 per square foot.

Vinyl siding cost vs other materials

Vinyl isn't the only option if you want to add new siding to your home. There are several other materials available to choose from, which can vary in terms of price and features:

Fiber cement

Fiber cement siding is almost double the cost of vinyl siding, at a price of approximately $6 to $10 per square foot. This siding tends to crack, so the joints need to be re-caulked as part of proper maintenance. It’s insect- and fire-resistant, making it a very durable choice.

Brick siding

Brick siding is also expensive and ranges between $11 to $15 per square foot. It takes more time to install this type of siding, typically between three and five days total. The siding is made of brick veneer, which is composed of clay or concrete poured into brick-shaped molds.

Aluminum siding

Aluminum siding is a budget-friendly choice that costs between $4 and $7 per square foot. Aluminum is malleable, so it can be bent on-site to provide a custom fit and can be painted any color for a customized look.

Wood siding

Wood siding is vulnerable to mold, rot, and insect infestation, so it requires a lot of maintenance. This affordable siding material costs between $3 and $10 per square foot. It looks beautiful and can easily be stained or painted for customization and durability.

Metal siding

Steel siding costs from $6 to $10 per square foot and is usually used to protect sheds, industrial warehouses, and outbuildings rather than most residential homes.

Shingle

Install shake or shingle siding to add a beautiful look to your home. This siding looks like real wood and has a textured finish. Plan to pay between $7.50 and $12.60 per square foot for shake or shingle-style siding.

Panel siding

Panel siding is made of treated engineered wood and comes in large sections or panels. This siding adds a modern, contemporary look to your home and costs between $5 and $8 per square foot on average.

Siding MaterialsAverage CostLowest CostHighest Cost
Fiber cement$8.00$6.00$10.00
Brick siding$13.00$11.00$15.00

Other costs of vinyl siding

There are several different factors to consider when asking, “How much is vinyl siding?” The size of your home is the most important factor - the larger the home, the more material and labor required to complete the job. Removing your old, existing siding will also increase your total price. Be sure to include the cost of labor and disposal to remove your old siding if you’re having it replaced.

It’s cheaper to lay new siding on top of old siding, but you need to ensure the home is structurally sound and the new vinyl siding is thick enough to fit on top of the old material. Specialty and high-quality siding like board and batten tends to cost more than standard vertical vinyl siding. Additional insulation or insulated siding is approximately 50% more expensive on average than non-insulated siding. Remember to include the cost of vinyl trim in your total price, which ranges between $3 and $6 per linear foot.
