I love the design of your home, very pretty!!
Depending upon what type of siding you are referring too, perhaps vinyl or composite? Or
With vinyl you will spend somewhere in the range of $2000. Go to wood and the price will go up several hundred dollars. Cedar, can be as much as $4.50 per foot.
I would suggest that you stick with what you have, at least in look department. Have the old stuff torn off and new materials installed. But the trim boards should be Azek or some other plastic type of trim that can be installed without the worry of future rot. And all the flat panels be exterior grade treated plywood with a good quality coat of paint on both sides. Do not forget to properly caulk all joints or glue when using plastic types of trims. This will assure you of a long lasting wall system that will look great for years to come.
Susan, it is pretty, but it has water damage & rot, not very pretty with holes gaping in it. Thanks, I love my house!
Steve, thanks for the advice I will look,
Wood,you are right on target. I was thinking to wrap it with the same hardiplank that is is
As a onmtractor I would not even give a firm price on something with rot showing, esp around windows, because there is often worse rot under the sills and behind the siding. You will never know the extent of the problem until you open it up.
So if you hire someone based on bid price, they are likely to just cover it up and keep on
I find that 7 or 8 out of ten builders actually do window flashings right. The rest depend on guesswork and caulking.
I make a good percent of my income fixing behind their screw-ups
