Hi, I am a siding contractor in the Raleigh Area. I own www.ussidingpros.com. Typically the cost of the siding is calculated by the exterior wall space. You have to factor in gables too- on average though a 1500 ft house has around 22-23 squares or 2200-2300 square feet of wall space. Fiber cement siding is sold by the panel. Your typical 8.25" hardi panel has 16 pieces per square. Am i confusing you? Hardi plank is running close to $110 per square in the area. At 23 squares on the house you can multiply it to be around $2800 just for the material. That answers your question directly. Now, to reside the house its gonna be alot more involved. You need to add housewrap, nails, mounting blocks, soffit, fascia, starting courses, and then labor to remove the masonite and reinstall all the new products. Dont forget paint! You can expect to pay anywhere from 13-18 thousand for a complete job. Without seeing the house in person though, this is just a guess. Feel free to ask more questions.
