The quality of the replacement siding is a significant factor in the cost. Low-cost siding may save home owners money during the short term, but siding that is of better quality may need to be replaced less often and may be more durable for the long term.

The cost is affected by the square footage of the home with larger homes requiring more materials and labor time. A home that has multiple stories, turrets and eaves may require more expense for replacement vinyl siding because the siding needs to be cut to fit the home or more siding may be needed. Replacing vinyl siding on a home that is a simple box shape is often less expensive.

Contractors also charge more to remove old siding. Homeowners who have replacement vinyl siding placed on top of existing siding may incur lower charges.
