Two Points About This Siding Calculator

First, the estimates do not indicate if they include labor. Most siding estimates do include labor; it's understood that only qualified pros will undertake a siding installation job. Still, it would be nice if the estimates clarified this.

Also, the estimates do not take into account house size. Understandably the hurdles are kept to a minimum. Otherwise, users would back out before getting the estimate. But even a rough "small, medium, or large" type of filter would bring in more accurate estimates.
