How much is fibre cement cladding

Fibre cement cladding is a great modern alternative to wood, vinyl, or PVC pipe, not only for its durability but also for its price. While it can be a little more of an investment upfront, fibre cement cladding can last for over 50 years without needing to be replaced, and so outlasts many of its other counterparts.

The installation of fibre cement cladding can cost anywhere between £5000 and £20,000, which includes both the material itself, and the labour involved. Your project will be more expensive or range towards the higher end of the estimated budget if it has to be painted afterwards. Labour is the main contributor to the cost, as it is heavier, and requires caulking on the edges afterward to be sealed properly.

Cost Per Square Foot
While the range of prices can be anywhere from £5 per square foot to £25, once again including labour, the average cost is around £10. The cost can vary based on a couple of different elements;
• Brand Name: more reputable and well-known brands will be able to charge more for their materials because they have an established reputation in the business. That being said, they are reputable for good reason and are more durable and aesthetically-pleasing than others
• Size of the home: The taller or bigger your project, the more equipment and time will be needed to install, which will drive up your price
• Convenience: The easier it is to access your home, and the more space you have between your house and your neighbours’, will help drive the price down, as it makes it easier to access.

Cost of Fibre Cement Cladding
If you are looking to purchase the materials yourself from your local home improvement store, it can cost anywhere from £0.70 to £20 per square foot, depending on the brand, colour, and style. When in-demand, fibre cement cladding can cost even more, as manufacturers can charge a higher price, knowing it’s needed.

There are also different options that you can choose when picking your cladding, and this will also affect the price. Fibre cement cladding shingles can be purchased from £2 to £6, and planks can be found at some of the cheapest prices, from £0.70 to £6.

Fibre cement panels are more expensive and can cost anywhere from £30 to £560, depending on the size of the panels. The larger in size they are (as an example, 4’x10’ instead of 2’x8’), the more expensive they will be. If you can, try to find a bulk seller, as you might be able to save 50% off your total price.

Labour ; Timing
Labour is one of the most expensive parts of installing fibre cement cladding. It costs anywhere from £2 to £10 per square foot. This range can also increase with the type of cladding that you choose. As shingles are a more tedious and time-consuming task, they will be more expensive to have installed, and panels will be least expensive, as they take less time.

In general, a crew made up of 2 people can install about 100 square feet of fibre cement cladding every 6 hours.
