Recently, we had damage to our siding on both sides of the house where there was buckling and panels were loose. After waiting forever for our contractor to fix it, we hired someone to fix it and sent our contractor the bill. The cost was about $2K. The contractor sent us back a response stating that all was needed were "spacers" and could have cost a lot less than what we spent.

We asked the person who performed the service and he has been in the business for 10 years and has never heard of anything called "spacers".

I'm asking for another opinion to see if there is such a thing.

Our contractor also stated that it doesn't cost this much to side an entire house. Is my contractor nuts or what??? We received estimates ranging from $2K - 6K to just fix this. Please tell me that my contractor is trying to pull one over on us thinking that we are stupid or something.

Thanks for your time and await your response.

Several years ago I got an estimate from Sears to put vinyl siding on my 2-story house, including trim, etc. The estimate was $14K.
I don't know what spacers are, but I believe I would ask several building contractors if they know what spacers are for siding.
Also, check with your homeownwers insurance.
