Tips for Getting an Accurate Siding Estimate

Tips for Getting an Accurate Siding Estimate

The estimate you receive for your roofing or siding project is critical. It should be a detailed list of every expense anticipated for the project. If the estimate isn’t accurate or thorough, you might be in for an unpleasant surprise once the project is underway.

Today, Northern Pacific Roofing shares some tips to help ensure your siding estimate is accurate.

Know the Size of Your Home

The larger your home is, the more materials your siding and roofing contractor will need to get the job done. This will inevitably lead to a longer installation process and more labor, which will result in a higher price. By knowing the size of your home, you’ll be able to pinpoint if your contractor is being honest about the estimate or not.


The timing of your project will also impact the cost. As spring and summer are the busiest times of the year for siding contractors, you can expect to pay more during these seasons. Therefore, if you want a lower estimate, consider having your siding repaired or replaced in the off-season, such as fall.

Home Design

The design of your home will also impact your siding project’s estimate. For instance, if your home has multiple stories or has complex architectural features, you can expect the contractor to give you a higher estimate compared to homes that have simpler designs.
