Calculate the total cost for siding your house using this straightforward tool.

## How to Use the House Siding Cost Calculator

1. Measure the dimensions of your house: length, width, and height in feet.

2. Enter the total window area in square feet.

3. Enter the total door area in square feet.

4. Enter the cost of siding per square foot in dollars.

5. Click the “Calculate” button to see the estimated total cost.

### How the Calculator Works

This calculator adds up the wall area by multiplying the perimeter (2 * (length + width)) by the height of the house. Then, it subtracts the area occupied by windows and doors. Finally, it multiplies the remaining area by the cost of siding per square foot to give the total cost.

### Limitations

The calculator assumes a rectangular house shape and does not take into account any complex architectural features such as gables, overhangs, or varying wall heights. Use the obtained value as an estimate.
