It doesn’t matter what state the economy is presently in — good, or bad, we all want to save on vinyl siding when it comes time to purchase for your home. As a licensed home improvement contractor in Boston, MA. I often, as do other contractor’s in the area begin to have a period where business begins to slow down — this time is normally in the Fall. For the savvy home owner, they understand that come Fall it will be the best time to save on vinyl siding installation because this is when most contractors are slow and will aggressively reduce the cost to install vinyl siding onto their home…
- Begin contacting vinyl siding contractors around the first week of October — don’t be last minute..
- Get at least 3-5 bids and try to compare line-items across these bids to compare pricing
- Do some research on each type of siding being offered so that you understand the value and can justify the price difference.
Save even more money by doing some of the labor yourself
Every bit helps! If you feel that your up to it and enjoy ripping things apart, remove the old siding yourself.. By doing so, you can save anywhere from: 1-1.75 per square foot on the vinyl installation cost! In other words, if you have a 2,000 square foot home, that’s a savings of 2-2,750.00 in added savings. I don’t know about you, but that’s enough motivation for me! Besides, the Fall weather is the best time to do any kind of outdoor work. Its not like in the scorching Summer heat where you sweating your butt off!
