The siding on your home help to keep it safe and keep it looking great. When there has been damage to the siding, you will want to make sure that you have it repaired as soon as possible. Even though metal siding is durable and can stand up to inclement weather, there may come times when it needs to be repaired. Common reasons to repair metal siding include dents and even punctures. Dents are relatively easy to repair, but sometimes replacing part of the siding is a better option.

The type of damage, where you are located, and how easy the siding will be to get to and repair can all affect your overall cost. If there is a lot of ladder work that needs to be done on a two-story building, it would cost more than a smaller property without a second story.

Metal siding repair: 200 square feet of metal siding on a 1,500 sq.ft. home.

Labor Cost $45 per hour 8 $360
Total Cost $5.80 per sq.ft. 200 $1,160


Other considerations and costs

  • The square footage of the siding that will need to be repaired will be the biggest factor in determining your cost.
  • Most repairs can be done in a day, but this will depend on the extent of the repairs that are needed, as well as how easy they are to reach.
  • If there was insulation with the metal siding, this might need to be repaired or replaced, as well.
  • Replacement metal siding may have a different color than the rest of the home because painted metal can sometimes fade. You may need to hire someone to repaint the entire home to make it match.

DIY considerations

  • If you only have dents and dings, you can learn how to pop the dents out on your own. If the damage is too severe or too high for you to work comfortably, you should instead work with a contractor.
  • Other simple repairs, such as cleaning the siding for maintenance and repainting the siding are easy to do.
