We've got the answers you need about the cost of a Hardie Board siding project so you can make the best decision for your home.
How Much Does Hardie Board Siding Cost?
Many folks wonder if James Hardie Siding is expensive. It's hard to know exactly how much you'll spend on your unique project. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere between $18,000 and $41,000 for Hardie Board siding. Hardie Board siding is more expensive than the same project in vinyl, but lasts longer and requires less maintenance than vinyl. There are a few factors that contribute to the cost of your Hardie Board. Reviewing them can help you get a better idea of where your project is likely to fall within the cost range for upgrading to fiber cement siding.
Where you live can impact your Hardie Board siding costs. The area’s average cost of living influences many aspects of your project, most notably the prevailing wage for labor and the cost of materials. If it's harder to get materials in your area, your project will also be more expensive.
Fortunately, when you work with our Smardbuild team, you'll rest assured that you're paying the best possible price on your project, and you won't encounter unexpected fees and surprises. 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 time it will take to install them. Larger homes have more room for accents, embellishments, trim, and contrast, which might add to the cost of adding fiber cement siding.
Likewise, if you have a smaller home, your project might cost even less!
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.
