2018 is shaping up to be a great year for home improvements. The economy has turned around for a few years now and homeowners are saving up enough finances to budget for renovations. One of the most popular projects that our customers are already seeking information on is siding replacement.
It’s not hard to see why having new siding installed is such an appealing project. New siding boosts your home’s curb appeal while increasing the market value of your property. New siding can help increase energy efficiency and wind resistance as well. Old, damaged siding often leaks or allows an entrance for rodents and insects to nest.
If you’re looking at new siding for your home this coming Spring, here are some of the trends we foresee in the upcoming building season.
Bold and Dynamic Color Choices
It’s always been recommended that in order to make your home appealing for resale it’s important to stick with neutral colors. However, bold colors might be something we see more of in 2018. Bright trim against dark siding complete with a contrasting color on doors, shutters, etc. creates an amazing aesthetic.
The New Neutral
Along the same lines of siding colors shifting from creams and grays, the new neutral color appears to be shades of greens. Homeowners are starting to mix greens with hues of whites, grays, and tans to some pretty spectacular results.
Blending of Siding
Another new trend is the conformity of not conforming. Homeowners are having siding of different widths installed as well as using different siding types but of the same color. Vertical and horizontal siding continue to be meshed together with ultimately the emphasis aimed at the texture.
Continuously Popular Materials
As modern manufacturing methods continue to improve, people can now have vinyl siding but with wood and stone textures ingrained. Vinyl siding, fiber cement, and other alternatives are available. Eco-friendly siding choices that are durable and made of recyclable materials will stay the trend for the foreseeable future.
The best things about the siding trends for 2018 is that the siding styles and colors will bring your home curb appeal for years to come. If you’d like more information on how to take full advantage of these and other home improvement trends for the upcoming year feel free to contact us today.
