Siding Removal Cost

Explore siding removal costs and prices. Understandably, many homeowners want to keep the cost of replacement siding to a minimum. One place where the consumers often look to cut costs is by bypassing the removal of the old cladding. However, this is rarely advisable as the older cladding may be hiding water damage or structural decay inside the walls that can cost more money to fix down the road. The cost of removing existing siding from a home will typically run $.50 to $1 per sqaure foot.

Importance Of Siding Removal

Slapping up new siding on top of fold siding is like putting a band aid over a potentially dangerous cut, trapping whatever is inside and hoping for the best. Most credible contractors will actually refuse to put up new siding until they tear off the existing cladding and properly assess what is going on underneath. (Read more on siding material costs.) Assuming that there is no water damage or rot, the contractor can add housewrap, which is one of the best ways to add some really insulation to the walls and can then go ahead and install the new siding.


Price For Removing Siding

Removing the old siding will typically add $.50 to $1 per square foot for standard jobs. However, in terms of long term cost, removing the old siding can save money in the long run. Most quality contractors will insist on it so they don't have liability down the road for more failing siding. In most cases, consumers can expect to spend $1,000 to $3,000 to remove siding, again depending on the size of the project. This includes the cost of renting a dumpster, all of the labor required to remove the cladding and the transportation and disposal fees.
