Before you install Exterior Siding Panels on your home, make sure you study up on the latest trends. Choosing the wrong type of siding – or installation style – could make your home look out of date and out of style. It could even hurt your home value and make it more difficult to sell when the time comes.
Want to make sure your exterior Siding Panels are on trends? Here’s what today’s homeowners are leaning toward:
Skipping the vinyl. Vinyl siding had its day, but homeowners are finally realizing that it’s just not a good investment. Easily broken, cracked and chipped in bad weather and highly inflexible when it comes to color and style, vinyl just isn’t a feasible option for modern homeowners anymore.
Choosing wood-like siding over real wood. Real wood siding is beautiful, but it also comes with all sorts of problems. It’s also difficult to maintain, and it’s one of the most expensive types of siding on the market. Many homeowners are opting for “wood-like” siding options instead to get that same beautiful look, without all the hassle.
Shingled styles. Shingle-style siding can give a home that classic Cape Cod look without all the nasty Northeast weather or winters that come with it. They’re also great for cottage-style homes and smaller properties with a quainter feel.
Bold colors. Forget plain old wood tones. Try a bold red, blue, green or grey and really make your home pop. Colored siding is all the rage with today’s homeowners – especially flexible siding that can be colored and re-stained later on when trends change.
All-over siding, not just here and there. Though spots of siding can certainly add visual appeal, all-over siding is a great way to transform a home completely. It can turn a boring, cookie-cutter property into something truly unique and marketable.
