A vinyl siding estimator uses measurements of a house to calculate the exterior square footage. Those numbers provide a basis for estimating how much vinyl siding will be needed when a contractor provides a quote for materials and installation.Start Free Trial
In order to get a proper estimate for vinyl siding costs, you must measure the total square footage of the house. For a contractor, the cost per square foot is a main factor for calculating overall cost.
Some of the factors that contribute to overall cost of installing vinyl siding include:
Complexity of the house structure also contributes to cost. A small single story home with complex angles and variance on the the exterior could cost as much as a simple large two story home. Windows, doors and other exterior accessories require more measuring, cutting, and labor. That leads to greater overall cost.
