We often get asked how much does house cladding cost. Unfortunately, there’s no simple answer.
The cost of installing vinyl cladding on a home or investment property depends on a variety of factors. The style of cladding you choose is one component. Other considerations include preparation, optional features, and installation costs.
Before you start a good question to ask is: why am I investing in my home? Is it to be more energy efficient? Reduce the maintenance load? Or get ready for sale?
Adding insulation, when you clad your house, can significantly improve energy efficiency. We recommend foam insulation and sisalation wrap. This may increase the initial outlay but the pay off is a more comfortable home and long-term energy savings.
This is also a great time to consider solutions that reduce on-going maintenance requirements. You could consider cladding hard to reach areas such as eaves. Or, you could plan for other maintenance tasks such as repainting window sashes to be completed while the scaffolding is up.
If it’s a completely new look you’re after then it’s worth thinking about the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. To get the best results we recommend investing in, not just the vinyl cladding cost, but improving the overall look of the home. Consider the condition of your windows, fascia, and doors. Are they hard to get too? Do they need repainting? Does anything else need to be updated or replaced?

The cost of installation can be split into three main areas: the existing exterior, scaffolding and labour costs.
Vinyl cladding can be applied to your house exterior over a variety of different substrates. Each option may affect the overall vinyl cladding cost depending on the preparation required, especially if there is any specialist work needed such as the removal of asbestos.
It is a legal requirement in Victoria to set up scaffolding for the entire building, before installing the cladding. (check) The cost of scaffolding will be determined by the size of your home and whether it is a single or double-story dwelling.
Labour costs for installing the cladding will also be determined by the size and scale of the property but also the complexity of the building and the areas you are cladding.
