That really depends on the value you place on your home.

SELECTING THE BEST OPTIONS

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="20"][vc_column_text]The purchase of replacement HardiePlank® siding is much like a purchase of a vehicle or even a home.  With so many options available, price ranges can vary drastically.  For example, a Ford F-150 can start around $20K with just a basic package, it could quickly add up to over $40K once the buyer adds in items such as power windows, leather seats, spray on liner, upgraded rims, CD player, chrome finishes, etc.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][vc_column_text]Considering the fact that the average American sells or trades in their vehicle every five years, why do so many people elect to get so many upgrades?  Since most people spend over 30 minutes a day in their vehicle, many of them want to get everything they want the first time that it will provide them with comfort, quality, longevity, and ease of use.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][vc_column_text]These same principles typically apply to replacement HardiePlank® siding, as well.  Homeowners understand that they are going to see their house every day, coming and going.  They understand that their home is the largest investment they own and will want to select the right style, color, installation methods, and other options that may affect the long term look and performance of their home.  Doing all of this the first time is critical in order to achieve the best value for your dollar.  Most homeowners will select the HardiePlank® siding project that will make them the happiest in the long run.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner content_placement="middle" column_margin="default" text_align="left" css=".vc_custom_1516612237330{border-top-width: 5px !important;border-right-width: 5px !important;border-bottom-width: 5px !important;border-left-width: 5px !important;border-left-color: #f36500 !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #f36500 !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #f36500 !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #f36500 !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;border-radius: 2px !important;}"][vc_column_inner column_padding="padding-4-percent" column_padding_position="all" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" width="1/1" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid"][image_with_animation image_url="16768" alignment="center" animation="Fade In" border_radius="none" box_shadow="none" max_width="100%"][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" column_margin="default" text_align="left"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_position="all" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" width="1/1" column_border_width="none" column_border_color="#9b9b9b" column_border_style="dashed"][vc_column_text]

PRICE VS QUALITY

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="20"][vc_column_text]Unfortunately, some people only focus on the initial price of HardiePlank® siding with the goal of finding the cheapest contractor.  They frequently sacrifice proper installation, quality, warranty, and aesthetics, which inevitably leads to regret. It’s important to remember that, unlike a vehicle, replacement HardiePlank® siding on your home cannot be traded in if you are not happy with the final outcome of the selection or quality of the installation. When selecting a certified HardiePlank® siding contractor, it is recommended to find one who has been reviewed on Angie’s List or the Better Business Bureau so you can read real reports from real customers.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner equal_height="yes" content_placement="middle" column_margin="default" text_align="left"][vc_column_inner column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_position="all" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_shadow="none" column_border_radius="none" width="1/1" column_border_width="none" column_border_color="#9b9b9b" column_border_style="dashed"][vc_column_text]

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OPTIONS

[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="20"][vc_column_text]I would also recommend selecting a company that has design consultants, not salesmen, come out to your home and give you suggestions of certain designs, styles, and colors based on your home and neighborhood.  This will enhance the resale value of your home while helping you explore all of your options.  If the project seems too daunting to undertake at one time, some homeowners elect to have the job installed in phases.  A good design consultant can explore all of the options with you and price a job many ways based on those different options that will help you find the best solution for all your needs.[/vc_column_text][divider line_type="No Line" custom_height="10"][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][divider line_type="Full Width Line" line_thickness="1" divider_color="default"][vc_column_text]If you are wondering about ballpark figures for a typical HardiePlank® siding replacement project, check out this other blog post on how much HardiePlank® siding costs.
