LP SmartSide siding is a popular alternative to genuine wood siding – it costs less and typically requires less maintenance. And it has the look and feel of real wood siding, something vinyl and fiber cement siding can’t quite claim.
Right off the bat, most homeowners can expect to pay between $9.50 and $15.50 per square foot to install LP SmartSide siding, depending on the project specific variables, choice of a contractor, and project location.
The above price range assumes a professional installation carried out by a licensed and insured contractor who will obtain a building permit, remove and dispose of old siding, and provide a comprehensive workmanship warranty.
For DIY enthusiasts, LP SmartSide siding cost is around $3.00 to $5.00 per square foot for materials. In addition to the cost of materials, you would also need to pull a local building permit, take care of the removal and disposal of old siding (if needed), install new house wrap (vapor barrier), and provision for all the necessary tools and supplies.
