How Much Does Hardie Board Siding Cost?

On average, you can expect to pay anywhere between $18,000 and $41,000 for Hardie Board siding. The reason it ranges so much depends on the following factors. 

The Location of Your Home

Where you live can impact your Hardie Board siding costs, based on the area’s average cost of living. More expensive areas tend to have more expensive costs. Likewise, the harder it is to get materials in your area, the more expensive your project will be.

Fortunately, when you work with our Smardbuild team, you can have peace of mind that we’ll give you the best possible price on your project. We believe in honesty and transparency and will always be upfront with you about our pricing, so you never feel blindsided. 

The Size of Your Home

One of the biggest factors that impact the cost of your siding project is the size of your home. The bigger your home is, the more materials you’ll need and the more your project will cost. 

Likewise, if you have a smaller home, your project might cost less than what you budget!

The Features You Choose

One of the many benefits of Hardie Board siding is that it comes in a variety of styles and colors, so you can really customize your home. 

However, some of the available styles are more expensive than others. Our team will be happy to give you more information about the price range of different options during our consultation. 

The Installation Company You Choose

Of course, Hardie Board installation prices will vary based on the installer you choose, so it’s worth it to take time to research different vendors near you. 

Here at SmardBuild, we’re committed to treating all of our customers with respect while delivering high-quality work and unmatched customer service. When you work with our team, you’ll never have to wonder if we’re overcharging you or trying to sneak added costs on your final bill.

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.
