how do i get over feeling of "im being taken advantage of" when im trying to hire someone?

i would like to buy siding for my home but didnt expect it to be expensive..all the qoutes have been 11-14k from 6 or 7 companies..this is normal i take it but i just feel like this is to expensive. My house isnt some super home where i have deep pockets and just seems like these companies want to put the absolute best on it.

i just want to have it look nice but not wipe out my bank account..i just feel if i agree to any of them that some how im being taken advantage of and there was a great deal right around the corner.

Not sure of your circumstances.  If you think it my be because of contactors personal prejudices maybe you can get a friend or family member to stand in for you when meeting 1 or 2 new contractors.
