Below we will lay out what’s popular in this year’s home siding market, ideas that you’re sure to find both interesting and creative. So let’s get started on your dream home. 

Eco-Friendly Siding Options Are Dominating the Market and They’re Here To Stay

In 2022, people are more environmentally conscious than ever; when given the option to select eco-friendly materials and support the ever growing green construction strategies, homeowners are absolutely jumping on board. With this in mind, it’s important to keep in mind that several factors determine the eco-friendliness of a material, including its recyclability, energy efficiency and whether it was obtained locally. Countless siding options will help you reduce your carbon footprint and, starting now, that’s the way most homeowners are going.

Use of Fiber-Cement Siding is on the Upswing

Without doubt, fiber-cement is one of the best eco-friendly siding options. Among the many offerings available in today’s market, we feel you can’t go wrong with fiber-cement which is being used by more and more homeowners each year. 

Fiber-cement resembles wood but is more durable and long-lasting. You can select from a variety of colors, all of which are slow to fade so there’s no need for frequent re-painting.This siding option is not only made to withstand harsh weather elements, but is a timeless way to upgrade your home.

Contrasting Colors Add Depth to Exterior Home Design

An easy way to add distinction to your residence is by pairing siding with a darker or lighter color. Incorporating this type of contrast can add depth, excitement and even a dramatic touch, making your exterior siding design distinctive and unique. And who doesn’t like that little bit of extra magic!

Vinyl Siding Colors and Styles that Command Center Stage

To make your home look fresh and up-to-date, it’s vital to select the right color. Four of the most popular to consider include:

Natural Clay – A classic look with a neutral tone that can make your home upgrade exciting and sharp.

Plunge Pool – Ideal for natural tones and an earthy tones look.

Autumn Red – An eye-catching color that will demonstrate the aesthetic strength of your home.

Gray – A perennially popular choice that’s available in numerous shades that always blend well with other colors. 

While you can’t go wrong with white (of course!), you may not quite be ready to commit to another new color (especially a deep, moody color). In this case, color-blocking might be a good option to consider. Select the siding you like, then find a happy medium with shutters, front door colors, or trims that complement. 

Vinyl siding styles also can add a special boost to your project. These three styles are currently dominating:

Traditional Lap – Classic siding incorporating long, flat planks that overlap to shed water and prevent it from reaching the walls. Narrow, regular and wide widths are available, ranging from three to seven inches. 

Dutch Lap – Has a gentle concave face that curves out into a notched overlap.

Blend Siding Textures and Types for Bold Visual Interest

Mixing up design and textures is a simple way to yield big results for your home’s exterior. Begin with the shades you’d like to combine and choose what you love. Light and cool? Earthy? Bright and bold? Then go ahead and incorporate blending and texture on various siding widths. You might even want to give vertical siding a try. Mix and match – the result will be a beautiful home that’s yours and yours alone. 

Nothing Enhances the Curb Appeal of Your Home Like New Siding

Modern homes are all about clean lines, striking accents and the use of emerging materials. Yes, siding has been around for decades, but the options available to you now provide infinite styling opportunities never possible before. With so many choices in material, color and design at your fingertips, the home of your dreams couldn’t be easier to attain.
