Shake Siding Cost (Materials Only)
Low To Mid Grade: $2.00 – $3.00 psf
$200 to $300 per square is the price range for low to mid grade materials. Lower grades of shakes typically are offered by manufacturers who specialize in entry level and builder grade materials. In addition, they may not come with a finish coat in the case of wood siding, therefore requiring higher labor costs to add that on site.
Mid To High Grade: $3.00 – $4.00 psf
$300 and $400 per square is the price range for mid to high grade materials. Mid grades to high end shakes will typically be offered by premium siding manufacturers and may already have a finish coat.
