Average general costs for exterior home renovations

On average, the cost for exterior home renovations ranges from $13,500 to 18,000, depending on the type of project and quality of the building materials used. Some sources put that number between $6,000 and $20,000, while others put it much higher – up to $100,000 for total exterior renovations, including roofing, in higher end suburbs of Boston.

This goes to show how wildly prices can swing when talking about exterior renovations. The final price tag to you depends on a variety of factors, such as:

  • Size, scope and location of project (mid-range vs. upscale)
  • Quality of materials used (low quality vs. high end)
  • Type of materials used (i.e., metal vs. asphalt vs. solar roofing)
  • Timeline
  • Extras and add-ons by the homeowner
  • Season and contractor availability

A large factor in determining price will be which projects you are looking to tackle, whether roof replacement, siding, solar roofing, or skylights, or a combination of several projects. So, how much does an exterior renovation cost? Let’s get into specifics.


Roof replacement

The cost of roof replacement varies with the material used. For instance, the cost of an asphalt shingle roof is $29,136 according to Remodeling Magazine’s 2023 Cost vs. Value Report. This gives you a recouped cost of 61 percent. On the other hand, the cost for a metal roof is $47,414 with an ROI of 49 percent.

If you’re eager to go green and want to incorporate solar roofing panels, the average cost is between $13,260 and $17,940, with an electricity bill offset of 80 to 108 percent. However, you can reduce your out-of-pocket cost by 30 percent by taking advantage of state and federal tax rebates.

Again, the material will dictate the price here. Vinyl siding replacement costs $16,348 for this region, with an ROI of 95 percent, whereas the average cost for James Hardie fiber cement siding is $19,361, with an ROI of 88 percent. If you decide to add a manufactured stone veneer, that would cost you $10,925, with a recouped cost of 102 percent.

Windows, doors, and decks

While you’re replacing the siding, you may decide that an upgrade on your windows and doors is in order at the same time. A new steel entry door comes with an average cost of $2,214, or you could kick things up a notch and go with a fiberglass grand entrance for $10,823. Replacement vinyl windows will run you $20,091, with wood windows costing slightly more at $24,376.

If you’re looking to add a skylight to your home at the same time as your roofing project, expect to pay about $1,750 (low end of $1,000, high end of $2,500)

Fancy a new composite deck while you’re at it? They are great with the harsh New England weather but will cost you about $23,430. A wood deck will cost you less, at $17,051, but the upkeep over time is higher.
