How Much Siding Will You Need for Your Exterior Project?

You’ll need to consider the amount of siding material when investing in a new exterior for your home. For this, the “Goldilocks” approach should help – not too much, not too little, but just right. But how exactly do you determine the amount of siding your project needs?

Exterior Project

The How

Each siding installation project is unique, so the amount of siding used for one home (no matter how similar it is to yours) will be different than your own. Instead, you’ll need to look at the type of siding you’ve chosen for your exterior upgrade. If you’re having a lap, clapboard or panel siding installed, you should first measure the length and height of the wall that will receive the siding. Multiply the numbers together, and you’ll get the square feet needed. Note that the square footage of your windows and doors should also be included in this calculation.

It’s a different matter if you’re having shingle-type siding installed. Calculating the amount you’ll need will get rather complicated, so you should consult a reliable siding installation company like Lincoln Exterior Renovations. We’ll conduct a more comprehensive measurement of the exterior wall areas to give you a more precise figure, ensuring that your new siding will fit them exactly.
