Vinyl Shake Siding Prices

Vinyl shake siding prices range from $4 to $8.50 installed per square foot. This is considerably more expensive than horizontal lap, although often times, shake or shingles are only used on smaller portions of the home for visual accents. They look really great when properly used and can work with brick or stone cladding for a stunning effect.

-- Price Range: $4 to $8.50 psf installed --

Cost Of Shake Siding Itself

Vinyl shake shingles are roughly four times as expensive as standard vinyl lap panels. One of the major reasons is that they are much thicker and therfore more durable than a horizontal panel. You use more of them so they create a very strong, striaght wall that is difficult to match with an 8 or 12 foot panel board (although the foam backed insulated vinyl boards are very good.) The vinyl shake recreates the rough hewn look of actual wood shake, but obviously in a vinyl material. This is certainly nice for durability and the lack of any maintenance needs.
