I am considering to replace my stucco based siding to a HardieBoard like new one.

The house if fairly 'dificult', many corners, about 30 windows on 3 levels. the surface is about 5000 sf. What would be a fair fibercement installation rate? The house is in Quebec.

Average labour rate for Hardi-siding is $3.00 per square foot plus approx. $2.50 per square foot in materials.

Quotes I am getting so far for the project are 50-100% higher than 'reasonable estimates' that

were taking from the structural engineering company that performed the structural analysis.

The lowest price to install ( no old stucco removal, sheeting repair etc) the new siding i got

at about 77K incl labor and materials.

Where do I start when risk or management 'overhead' represents 50- 100% of the cost of work?

Again the project is in Quebec City and the area may have limited labor resources.

Thank you for any professional guidance.

Thank you. So from your prospective what is the best vendor, should I go to Hardies product

for large 4X pre-painted pannels and that is about $6 per sf installed or go to another brend

to save some money? Also, I am thinking to possibly add another tier or layer of the

fibercement panel to double the thinkness of the siding and add to the energy savings. How much more it should cost to install? Does it make sense to do if walls - windows dimensions will allow me to do so?
