If you’re looking to improve your house specifically to increase its value especially at sale time, re-siding or siding the house is an upgrade where you can achieve a 75 – 90% return on investment (ROI) according to recent reports.
Of all the siding types, vinyl is reasonably priced yet still provides thermal protection. An average price for 1,250 square feet of siding and trim is approximately $11,500. The resale value is a little less than $9,000 or 78.2%
Fiber Cement Siding
Fiber cement is a step up from basic vinyl siding. It is resistant to fire, termites and rot, and it doesn’t flex. A project for the same sized house would cost approximately $13,400 with a resale of just over $11,600 or 87%
Foam Backed Vinyl
The third material is vinyl backed with foam. It lays flat against the house creating a solid barrier which protects the house against critters and the weather. This time our 1,250 sq. ft. house project would be in the region of $14,200 with a resale of 78.1% or a little over $11,100.
