As a savvy shopper in the Triangle, you want to remodel your home exterior with exceptional products that won’t break the bank. James Hardie’s fiber cement siding, also known as HardiePlank, is the most popular option for homeowners. With renowned durability and lots of colors and styles to choose from, there’s no doubt HardiePlank checks all of the boxes for phenomenal quality. But how much does it cost to reside with HardiePlank?
At Carolina Exteriors, we’ve helped hundreds of homeowners invest in home makeovers that suit their budgets. In this blog post, we’re breaking down what you can anticipate spending if you reside with HardiePlank.
How Much Does HardiePlank Cost?
Because of its premium composition, a James Hardie installation is priced higher than its vinyl counterparts and imitation competitors. With an average cost of $10 – $15 per square foot, a 2,000 square foot home with installation costs will add up to $20,000 to $30,000. However, the price depends on exactly what is or is not replaced. Are you looking to keep your boxing (fascia, soffit, frieze), only replacing siding and corners – this “hybrid” approach is a more affordable reside option. However, those homeowners looking for long term low maintenance typically opt for a “full” reside option, to include siding, corners, and all boxing.
Before you decide if HardiePlank is the right product for you, consider what you’re paying for when you invest in this siding.

Other Pricing Factors to Consider
Did you know that the season you choose to reside your home in will affect the cost of your installation? When you install during peak siding season in the spring and summer, you may be running up costs you could save by having your installation done in the fall or winter. Spring and summer are the most popular months for people to schedule their remodels, so that’s when contractors are busiest.
The size, shape, difficulty and access of your home will greatly affect your cost of labor. Elaborate architectural details on your home look unique and beautiful, but they may also make siding more difficult to install for your contractor’s team. Additionally, hard to access areas due to slope yards and/or other encumbrances will also affect the labor cost.Be aware that your residing cost may differ from your neighbor’s depending on the size and shape of your home.
