In the past, siding options were very limited. Design and color variations were the bare minimum, and homeowners did not have much of a choice.
Talk to siding product makers these days, and you’ll hear plenty of enthusiasm. Economic and demographic trends are driving larger parts of their business toward exterior updates versus new construction.
Siding Options Abound
Another reason why these companies are responding with a range of new colors, profiles and materials is to meet the shift of society towards cleaner, contemporary lines and address the concerns of remodelers about project margins and labor shortages.
The enormous increase in options now available to homeowners is a big difference between the siding market today and that of a few decades ago. In the past, a prospective customer may have been able to pick from only cedar, metal, vinyl and fiber cement.
Now, each of these has fragmented: isolated and non-isolated vinyl and aluminum versions, a range of different fiber cement formulations and the entirely new polypropylene-based polymer siding category, primarily in shake-style products.
Getting to Know Your Options
The double in the number of siding options available may be confusing to homeowners. This is why manufacturers and contractors are working to make product information accessible where and when it is sought by their customers.
If you are planning to have your siding replaced, it is important to do your research and contact a contractor that is knowledgeable and an expert in the field. This will ensure you make the most of your investment.
