Just as there are trends in interior home design, the exterior of homes also undergo changes as tastes evolve. One of the most substantial updates you can make is replacing the siding. There are a lot more choices on the market today than existed in the past. Perhaps one of these trends is just right for updating the look of your home.
Trends in Siding Installation
The most popular siding material on modern homes is made from vinyl. Other innovative choices, like fiber cement, are enjoying increasing popularity. Nonetheless, some homeowners still opt for traditional wood. In fact, many other siding materials are engineered to look like wood.
One of the advantages of all this choice is the wide array of colors that are available. Vinyl siding is available in at least 350 bold, unique colors. Moreover, it’s considered energy efficient, durable and requires very little maintenance. Fiber cement siding is also notable for its outstanding durability. It resists termites, and can be purchased painted or unpainted. Changing the color a few years down the road is easy too. Natural wood siding can also be purchased in a wide variety of pre-finished options. Alternatively, you can paint the siding yourself, which opens up a world of color possibilities.
A Variety of Siding Options
Other home exterior trends involve using a variety of colors, styles and materials. In other words, you might use a combination of wood and vinyl. Maybe you’ll use cedar shakes on gables or a stone veneer cladding to provide eye-catching details. Don’t be afraid to experiment by pairing various elements and materials.
New siding can also be a good choice for the environmentally conscious consumer. Newer materials promise greater energy efficiency. These more advanced materials also last longer than the materials used several decades ago. Often the existing siding can be recycled or repurposed.
If you want to enhance your home’s curb appeal, new siding may be the way to go. Consider any of these trends while you’re reviewing the possibilities.
