Average size 2000 sq ft house is going to cost $6000 up to $15000. Again it depends on the material and detail work. Vinyl and Hardi are pretty popular choices right now. Both are just about carefree and easy to maintain. Installation is a big part of cost, getting multiple bids from local siding pros and picking the best one based on price / reputation is a good idea.
The cost to put siding on your home will vary according to your location, but a good range is $1 per square foot (if you're doing it yourself) to $2 - $7 per square foot if you have it professionally hung. Using a product other than vinyl will alter the price, too. For more information, look here: http://www.costhelper.com/cost/home-garden/vinyl-siding.html

The cost of siding is usually measured in "cost per square foot." It varies from month to month and region to region. The last time I estimated siding was for a project in the Midwest where it was roughly $3.50 per square foot for a hardboard lap pattern, $2.80 per square foot for vinyl siding, and nearly $5.00 per square foot for traditional pine clapboard. Those prices include material AND labor. If you need material and labor costs separated out, or if you need costs on any other types of siding, windows, roofing, you name it, visit http://www.Assistimate.com and order a "Going Rate Check" report using their cost database.
Here is the breakdown from a PRO Siding Companies' perspective. PRO Vinyl Siding Material Costs: for vinyl siding typically come in around $1.00 to $1.25 per square foot (or $100 to $125 per "Square" of siding) and that includes house wrap, nails, etc. PRO Vinyl Siding Installation Costs: What siding companies pay their installers is typically around $1.00 per square foot (or $100 per "Square" of siding. AVERAGE PRO to Consumer Vinyl Siding Costs "average" in at around $5.50 per square foot or $550 per "Square" of siding.
Average Remainder Costs: $250~$225 (around 50%).
SO What about this 50% of costs? Companies have to pay sales people, administration, licensing, insurance, fuel, dump and all sorts of other fees. And all of these costs can vary significantly from one company to the next.
What about companies that charge $900+ per square? Well maybe you're paying for expensive products or maybe you're paying for TV or ???
