Fiber cement continues to be a prominent siding choice in 2024 for homeowners seeking a durable, low-maintenance, and aesthetically versatile exterior solution.
Composed of a blend of cement, sand, and cellulose fibers, this siding material offers a range of benefits that contribute to its popularity, such as:
When it comes to fiber cement siding, Hardieplank does it best — and the numbers prove it. According to a 2018 Statista report, Hardieplank was the top fiber cement siding brand used by construction companies in the U.S. with approximately 71% of the market share.
This is in part because Hardieplank fiber cement has properties which are unique to the company. For example, Hardie siding offers superior fire protection — meaning it won’t ignite when exposed to flame.
It is also specifically engineered to hold up according to your specific climate. If you live in an area with bitter cold, harsh heat, heavy rain, or snow, you can feel confident knowing that your home’s exterior will withstand whatever is thrown at it for years to come.
All home exterior materials begin to show signs of wear and tear eventually, but Hardie board makes repair and maintenance easy for any homeowner.
Real Cedar siding is a premium material that rises above the competition because of its design flexibility, durability, ease of maintenance, and natural beauty versus other wood siding types.
Cedar siding comes in a variety of design styles, such as:
Lap & Bevel – This classic siding pattern is a widely used style due to its timeless beauty. It provides flexible design options based on the finish you select and is highly customizable, coming in clear or knotty grades with a variety of stain options to enhance the wood’s natural beauty.
Tongue & Groove – This versatile siding can be used both indoors and on your home’s exterior. You can also install it either with the rough or smooth side out to change up your look. Tongue and groove siding can be installed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.
Cedar Shakes – This siding type offers dimension and warmth. The natural color is beautiful, but cedar shakes can also be painted or stained to create a custom look. They can be applied to curved walls as well.
Since Western Red Cedar doesn’t contain any pitch/resin, it accepts oils, stains, and finishes very well. That means the sky’s the limit when it comes to your color and style options.
You can also get cedar siding with rough or smooth surfaces, which can add to the overall look depending on if you’re going for rustic charm, sleek and contemporary, or somewhere in between.
Cultured stone siding, a popular choice in 2024, combines the timeless appeal of natural stone with modern manufacturing techniques, offering a versatile and eco-friendly alternative for home exteriors. Crafted from lightweight aggregate materials, such as concrete, and molded to replicate the look of natural stone, cultured stone siding provides several compelling advantages, including:
A recent survey found that off white/cream was the most popular color choice among homeowners looking to refresh their exterior in 2024. Other popular options included:
It would seem as though homeowners value timelessness over other factors when it comes to choosing the color of their new siding exterior.
Whether you’re looking for a classic, bold, or modern look, there are ways to give your home a timeless value while still giving it your unique flair. Here are just a few ways to spice up your home’s new siding color in 2024.
Deep charcoals, rich navies, and profound blacks are gaining popularity as homeowners seek to infuse a sense of drama and sophistication into their exteriors. These dark hues not only make a bold statement but also provide a striking contrast against landscaping elements.
Embracing the power of contrast, homeowners are opting for combinations that play with light and dark tones. This trend involves pairing light-colored siding with dark accents or vice versa, creating a dynamic visual impact that highlights architectural details.
Simplistic elegance is achieved through the use of monochromatic color schemes. Shades of a single color, ranging from light to dark, create a cohesive and modern look. This trend emphasizes clean lines and a contemporary aesthetic, allowing architectural features to stand out.
The timeless warmth of wood is making a resurgence in siding trends. Incorporating wooden accents, such as decorative panels or trim, adds a touch of natural elegance. This trend seamlessly blends modern aesthetics with classic charm, creating a harmonious balance that appeals to a wide range of design preferences.
Departing from traditional horizontal siding, the use of vertical elements is gaining momentum. Vertical siding or paneling contributes to a fresh and contemporary look, emphasizing clean lines and adding a sense of height to your home. This trend not only enhances curb appeal but also offers a unique twist on conventional exterior design.
Complementing the popularity of dark and bold colors, incorporating dark accents into your siding design is a trend that adds depth and contrast. Whether it's through trim, shutters, or architectural features, dark accents create a striking visual effect against lighter siding, contributing to a modern and sophisticated exterior.
Each year, more and more homeowners implement sustainable design choices into their homes. In 2024, the emphasis on eco-friendly options has never been so prevalent.
The overall eco-friendliness of a material may depend on a variety of factors, including its recyclability, durability, and energy efficiency.
Incorporating textured details, such as shingles or decorative panels, can break up large expanses and infuse character into your home. The key is to strike a balance that feels intentional and cohesive, ensuring that each texture complements the others while contributing to the overall design narrative.
By embracing the mix-and-match approach to textures, you not only stay on the cutting edge of exterior design trends but also infuse your home with a distinctive personality that reflects your unique style.
