What is Average cost per sq ft to replace siding?


We have a home built in 1998, constructed with Weyerhauser -"LP like" siding.
45ft long 2 story east wall, no belly band no window wrap, 3 windows, one fireplace wrap.. Our contractor is charging 6000 USD for tear out, debris removal and paint. Is this a fair price? What is the average cost to replace with Hardiboard? Thanks!

To get a handle on a price point, you call multiple contractors and get estimates. Blind numbers from people who haven't seen the worksite are of little use.

In addition to what Ron said....it sounds as though you have already hired the guy?

Exactly, a fair price is whatever you agreed to pay him.
