Exterior Remodel Costs in Naperville

How Much Does New Siding Cost in Naperville?

The price of new siding depends on the size of your house and the material you choose. Mastic Vinyl Lap siding and James Hardie Lap siding costs will differ based on a few other factors. Here is a quick breakdown of their costs:  

Mastic Vinyl Siding

  • 1,500 square foot home: $12K - $14K
  • 2,000 square foot home: $16K - $18K
  • 3,000 square foot home: $22K - $26K

James Hardie Siding

  • 1,500 square foot home: $22K - $25K
  • 2,000 square foot home: $28K - $31K
  • 3,000 square foot home: $39K - $46K

Of course, there’s more to the price of new siding than the upfront cost. For example, vinyl siding will need to be replaced up to two decades before fiber cement siding. Also, consider James Hardie’s minimal maintenance needs and industry-leading 30-year transferable warranty. Fiber cement siding is available in a beautiful array of colors and styles and doesn’t need to be repainted or maintained like traditional wood. James Hardie Siding is also fade-resistant and hail-resistant. Essentially, your upfront investment can save you money down the line.

Mark and his team did a terrific job and I could not be more pleased with the final work! Throughout whole siding installation process I was kept well informed about the progress and what will be next steps in the process. I'm living in Arlington Heights and anyone who is looking for great siding contractor can stop by my house and check their amazing work. I also plan on hiring them again for another siding project. That would be my parent's home. 🙂

I researched over 30 companies, and had 5 come out to my house to give me estimates to install new vinyl siding. I ended up going with Smardbuild, and I am very happy that I did. They showed up on time, and finished the entire job within a week. And the quality of the work is the best part. They are perfectionists! I have never seen attention to detail like this. They even went above and beyond the job requirements. They installed aluminum flashing around my sliding glass door to make it look nicer, and that was not even part of the job. And to top it off, they installed 2 new wall lanterns that I bought at Home Depot.

We used Mark and his Smardbuild team to replace our roof, soffits, fascia, siding, upstairs windows, gutters and front door. All work performed is top notch. We went with Hardie soffits and fascia since we had prior issues with carpenter bees drilling holes in our old, wooden soffits. In my opinion Smardbuild is the best with Hardie products. Everything looks great. It took us a while to finally settle on a color for the siding and Smardbuild was quite patient with our process. After having issues with contractors in the past, it was refreshing to work with such a professional team that actually cares about the quality of their work. Thanks Smardbuild.
