Hot Siding Styles for Summer 2024 and Beyond

Is the exterior of your home looking a little weary and worn? Are you tired of the ever-increasing demands for maintenance? If you’re looking for something fresh to enhance the look and feel of your home, there have never been more options and stylish looks to improve the durability and aesthetic appeal of your home. 

While siding as a house covering is not a new concept, in 2024, the industry is at its best yet, producing a wide variety of shapes, textures, and materials. Creative homeowners are finding out-of-the-box siding styles to suit their taste. 

The home renovation experts at Homewise Roofing and Exteriors are ready to show you the hottest trends in residential siding this year.

Siding Style is Your Style

A house is the owner’s self-expression canvas. Never has it been truer that homeowners are embracing their own personal taste, colors, textures, and more to make home their place of comfort and sanctuary. The way we viewed “home” fundamentally changed during and immediately following the Covid-19 outbreak, and people are investing more time, energy, and effort into truly making home their own than ever before.

That’s great news as we consider siding trends. Sure, certain colors, such as gray in various hues, white, blue, and natural wood looks are consistently the most popular, but you can now choose from dozens of colors to give your residence a timeless, classic, edgy, or modern look or choose whatever style best suits your personality.

New Ways of Displaying Siding

As we’re discussing siding, are you imagining it hung horizontally around the whole perimeter of your house? 

Most of us would, as that look is what we see most often, but what if that eave, that corner of the house that juts out, or that accent wall had vertical siding instead? A new look in siding style this summer includes turning one or more sections of siding vertically to create a unique three-dimensional look.

Playing with color contrasts between siding and the trim of the house creates visually dramatic curb appeal. Pairing light siding with dark colored trim and window frames, or conversely, using dark siding with white or light trim and window frames give homes a modern and sophisticated style.

Its Moment to Shine

Fiber cement has been around for more than a century but has gained popularity in recent years for its versatility and durability. It can be manufactured to resemble natural wood or stucco, as well as traditional plank siding, and it packs great curb appeal. 

What is Fiber Cement, Exactly? 

Fiber cement is an amalgam of sand, cement, and cellulose fiber (a plant derivative that’s also contributed to the invention of celluloid, rayon, and cellophane).  Some also incorporate wood pulp. 

Benefits of Fiber Cement

Fiber cement is extremely durable and fire and critter resistant, inspiring some manufacturers to back their product with a 50-year warranty.  The materials in fiber cement are inedible to insects, so pests will keep their distance from it. The ease of care also entices busy homeowners; as the colors won’t fade, so repainting won’t be needed for many years.

A Word of Caution

Before committing to fiber cement, with all its appealing features, be forewarned that it comes with a higher price tag than other forms of siding. Many would posit that the initial cost is worth it because of the savings over time as this product outlasts its competitors. It is more complicated to install than vinyl siding, so this is one job you’ll want to entrust to the professionals. 

Popular for Good Reason

The ever-popular vinyl siding continues to be the siding of choice for most homeowners. It’s affordable, easy to clean, and offers endless color variety. It’s also long-lasting, freeing you from frequent maintenance or painting projects.

What is Vinyl Siding, Exactly?

Vinyl siding is made of weatherproofed plastic, or PVC resin. It’s traditionally shaped to resemble the texture of wood, but with our love for variety in modern design, smooth and textured siding can personalize your look.

Benefits of Vinyl Siding

The comparatively reasonable cost of vinyl siding contributes significantly to its appeal. Those who like the look of wood siding but don’t want endless painting projects find vinyl a satisfying alternative. Vinyl is also the easiest siding to install, making it possible for the installation team to work quickly to have your home looking sharp and new.

The Downside of Vinyl

Vinyl can be damaged by impact, causing cracking or holes that make your house susceptible to 6-legged invaders. This problem can easily be addressed by purchasing extra pieces of siding at the time of its installation.
