With a wide range of siding colors and types to choose from, you can customize your home. Gone are the days of white or tan houses unless that is your preference. Now, there are exciting colors and siding styles that you can mix and match to create a beautiful home exterior.
We love James Hardie siding because it is a painted product that allows you to quickly change the color of your home.
Saint Louis Has Quite a Traditional Market
The data for Saint Louis shows that white is still the most popular siding color. This provides your home with classic elegance.
Initially, Saint Louis homes used vinyl siding in shades of tan. Beige tones were the ‘safe’ choice because you can’t paint vinyl. Being a union market, vinyl was a cost-effective siding choice in Saint Louis. As you can imagine, beige vinyl became boring for contractors to install.
But, in recent years, James Hardie has grown in popularity. Not only is it more suited to Saint Louis weather, but it comes in versatile design options.
Home Décor Shows and Websites Have Sparked Experimentation
Websites like Pinterest, Houzz, and popular HGTV shows showed homeowners that they could take risks with their siding colors and types.
They also showed homes from across the country, and homeowners were inspired as they saw something different from what was on their street.
The last few years in the contracting industry have been fun. We have seen an explosion of color siding and attractive board design. It has also been exciting to challenge ourselves to make our client’s dreams a reality and help them customize their homes.
A lot of personality goes into home design now, and homeowners are taking time with siding colors and types, but also window shapes, custom glass panels, and hardware.
Some of the popular color trends we have seen recently are:
- Deep greys
- A range of blues
- Dark browns and greens
