Cedar type vinyl siding installation cost?
I'm in the process of getting new vinyl siding on my house due to a hail storm that insurance is covering. I would like to upgrade from a double 4" to a cedar impression siding. Insurance will cover the installation of a 4" double. How much should I expect to pay more to install the cedar impression siding? The cedar siding comes in 48" lengths where as 4" double come in 8' or 10' lengths.

Depending on who's you get, the vinyl shakes are not cheap. Last ones I bought were around $300/sqare (100 sq. ft.) 3-4 times the cost of average vinyl siding.

Remember this is the DIY site. If you were going to do the installation yourself that would be commendable.

Not just the cost of the siding to concider, all the trim will also need to be replaced. Impressions are much thicker.
They take at least twice as long to install, so this is not going to be a cheap job.
