Home design is not what it was even ten years ago. With construction materials becoming more sophisticated every day, offering homeowners superior performance, durability, and design spectrums, people no longer have to choose between a sturdy product or a pretty one.
When you’re updating your siding, you have so many options. As you open your browser, you have access to a universe of designs that you can order to your door. Let’s talk about some siding designs that would look great on your home. In particular, synthetic siding has come a long way in the past few decades, graduating from fragile asbestos to sturdy and reinforced vinyl and fiber cement that can last for decades.
1. Intricate Textures
Did you want wood shingles back when you bought your house but didn’t want to go through the tedious maintenance that comes with natural wood? Then you’ll be delighted to know that companies like James Hardie and CertainTeed offer fiber cement and vinyl replicas of your favorite wood siding. Synthetic materials can be boosted with insulation to make them just as warm, cozy, and beautiful as the real deal.
Or, did you want the beauty of natural stone but shirked away at the cost? Concrete can now come in faux stone panels that can look like natural stones from the quarries, but without the cost. If you can’t tell that this exterior siding to the right isn’t the real thing, then it’s likely that your neighbors or friends will never know either! (To find out more about faux stone, visit Genstone’s website which has extensive listings on their offerings. Discover everything from desert stone siding to even round river stone veneers!)
2. Pattern Variation
Lap siding is a simple and elegant choice for any home, but you can also explore other patterns and designs like vertical siding, shake and shingle, stone replica, brick, and more. In fact, even when you are just exploring vinyl and fiber cement, you’ll find interesting designs like board and batten, scallops, and beaded siding that are absolutely delightful to the eye!
The patterns you choose for your house depends on your personal style and your home’s look. And yes, we said patterns in the plural because you can definitely mix and match! Try lap and brick, or scallops and dutch lap siding. If you find yourself unable to decide, the professionals at Noble Roofing can come take a look at your house and advise you on what typically works with your home’s style.
New siding technology offers more color-fastness that doesn’t fade in the sun as easily as their outdated counterparts. Fiber cement can be painted for homeowners who like a change of pace once in a while. If you want to commit to a color, vinyl comes in many colors that range from muted to bold and don’t need a speck of paint to stay vibrant. For example, CertainTeed’s Monogram siding line comes with PermaColor™ technology, which offers a lifetime fade protection.
