Siding Labor Rates


Hey,

What is a fair labor price for r & r of vinyl siding in Minnesota? I've installed enough times but never for a bid. Father- in-law wants his house done and insists on paying the going rate.

Thanks,

STONEGUYMN

Re: Siding Labor Rates


I would do it for my father in law for 150 remove and 350 to install. Normally I would charge 50 to remove and 175 to install.

Re: Siding Labor Rates


its a message board. the guy wants an idea,no problem. 50 for removal and 350 for install ..
example, a 20 square home with a tear off using 20 foot monogram will cost about 13 k. i know because i just completed a job and charged 12k. material is about 2500 bucks. keep in mind,it was only a vinyl tear off so i would of charged about 13k.
that said,i don't use alot of J so our work is more professional than your average guy.

He likes lineals and that sort of crap. We truly use no J channel or vinyl accessories. And no its not a concealed J trim. Its a two piece system and the face snaps on once the siding is up. Everything, returns, rakes,freeze boards, corners, all snap on after the siding is up and can be changed out really quick if the customer dents it or there is bad storm damage

Re: Siding Labor Rates


There are a lot of variables involved. If you really want to know "somewhat" accurate rates, talk to a(your) distributor that you buy materials from. They'll be happy to help you out. That is where I turn anytime I need to bid something that I dont do very often.

..Is that a solid PVC product or a two piece like a j-block. It looks pretty nice. What is it called?
