How to calculate house siding costs accurately
Measuring the total square footage is by far the best thing you can do to get a proper estimate. Cost per square foot is a main factor
when determining overall cost by a contractor. Also, don't overlook the complexity of the house structure, a single story small home could cost
just as much as a large 2 story home, if there are very complex angles and variance on the exterior siding. The more windows, doors, & complex variance in the structure
the more measuring & cutting driving up labor costs.
