How Much Does House Siding Repair Cost?

What Will Be Covered:

Your home’s siding requires repairs every few years on average. The national average for siding repair is about $800 in 2021. The cost of siding repair can vary depending on many factors that will be listed below. 

You’ll need to look at how extensive your repair project is and what type of siding material needs repairing when figuring out what the cost of repairing siding will be at your property. Some additional charges may also come into play, although the necessary work for the task will vary surrounding whatever project you want to complete.

How Long Does it Take to Repair Siding?

A siding repair that is performed by a professional siding contractor is most likely going to get the job done right the first time than if you were to try to do it yourself. With that said, the task can take five to ten hours at the least to complete when done by a professional.

Some high-level jobs require at least forty hours of work to complete depending on the complexity of the damage. The timing will vary surrounding how many spots need fixing and the size of your property. 

Some siding companies may also review your entire home to check what has caused damage to your siding in the first place. The hourly charge for a contractor will go alongside the physical materials used to repair your siding and any other efforts in the work.

Accessibility

Expect to spend at least 30 percent more on repairs to the siding on the second or third story on a property. It takes extra time for siding installers to reach a higher area in need of repair. The company repairing your siding may add an extra charge of 20-30 percent to whatever existing expenses are necessary for the work to offset the risk. 

The workers also require extra safety measures to ensure they can securely repair the siding at a higher height. They will need ladders, harness systems, and additional people on hand to spot and protect anyone high up on your property.

The Extent of the Damage

The cost of repairing siding is higher if the area of siding in need of repair is unstable. If this is the case in your home, you may have to spend more money on replacing the entire section of siding to ensure that your siding is secured properly.

Added Protection

Some repair companies install building paper material under the siding to prevent water from seeping into walls. DuPont’s Tyvek is a very popular type of building paper, as it produces a weather-resistant membrane over your home to prevent leaks. You’ll most likely need to spend an additional amount of money for each square foot for building paper and insulation.

Disposal Costs

Your siding repair professionals will need to dispose the old siding after they finish their work. These include any pieces of siding that cannot be repaired and require full replacing, plus any structural pieces that need fixing. The repair team will also need to clear out anything that might have been taken off during the siding repair. It could cost around $300 or more to properly dispose of all trash and leftover pieces of siding.

The Materials for Work

The specific siding material on your home will influence how much your siding repair is going to cost. Down below is a list of siding materials that you may have on your home:

Brick

It costs about $5 to $15 per square foot to repair brick siding. It can also cost at least $250 to replace the cracked mortar around your brick siding. Some of the more common repairs for brick siding include: 

  • Clearing moisture that develops between the home and the brick 
  • Filling new mortar in spaces where the existing material has cracked 
  • Cleaning out debris and other items stuck inside the brick siding space

Stucco

You will spend about $3 to $6 per square foot to repair a traditional stucco surface. The specific cost you’ll pay for the task will vary over how many stucco cracks are on your surface and how deep or extensive they are. 

Stucco is a hard solid that features many layers. It can produce a distinctly natural look, but it can also develop cracks after a while. The repair process entails filling in those cracks. 

But it could also be more intensive than you expect, as some of these cracks can appear closer to your home’s structure. Stucco features multiple layers, and some openings can develop in deeper spots to compromise the integrity of the entire surface. Thus, always hire a reputable stucco contractor to give you the best solution for your home.

Wood

The cost of repairing wood siding varies. You could spend from $8 to $16 per square foot to repair wood siding. Some of the factors that will influence what it costs to repair your wood siding include: 

  • The Type of Wood – It costs more to repair cedarwood, as it is more durable and can resist decay. 
  • Cypress wood and redwood also cost extra to repair, especially if those wood materials aren’t as readily available in your area. 
  • Oak, spruce, and pine cost less to repair because they are more common materials that workers may be more familiar with managing. 
  • The Type of Damage – Sometimes, the wood might warp or split due to the local weather. It is easier to repair these issues than if someone had to repair decay from insects and moisture. Anything that has decayed would require a more extensive replacement process. 
  • Whether the Infrastructure Was Impacted – You’ll most likely spend extra if the siding installers needed to add studs to the walls or any other structural reinforcement.
  • Whether There Is Dry Wood Rot – Dry wood rot is not a good thing to have on your siding. You’ll most likely have to replace more siding depending on the degree of rot in the wood.

Fiber Cement

A fiber cement material like what James Hardie offers is known for being durable and easy to maintain. The mix of cement and cellulose fibers is what makes it super durable. However, there are other types of fiber cement siding that are not James Hardie and can tend to break down very easily.

You will most likely spend anywhere from $7 to $12 per square foot to repair any fiber cement siding on your home. The repair effort may require single boards or sections that need replacing. 

Signs Your Siding Needs Repair

Now that you understand what the cost of repairing siding is, you’ll need to watch for signs that your siding needs repair. 

Spend less on siding repair by taking care of the issue before it becomes worse. Be sure to contact a siding repair company as soon as you see any of these issues: 

  • The paint is starting to peel off the siding. 
  • You might notice warping around the siding. 
  • Regular exposure to sunlight will cause the siding to look uneven or chipped. 
  • Mold is building up in some areas. 
  • You notice your HVAC bills are quickly increasing despite you not changing your energy use. Poor siding could allow outside air to get near the deepest spots of your house, making it easier for the inside to become hotter or colder than usual. 

Asking for help with your siding at the earliest stages will reduce the risk of your property developing further damage.

Look At the Quality of the Work

The last thing to see when looking at how much does siding repair cost involves the quality of the project. A team that provides better-quality services or uses more modern materials will likely charge extra for the project. 

Check the company’s portfolio of past projects and reviews to see how well the company can handle a task like yours. Look for reviews from prior customers about how well they work and what you can get from the service. Be sure when finding a repair team, that you’re sticking with a professional group, because in the end, it can save you a lot of time, stress, and unnecessary aggravation.
