Unique siding combinations that draw the eye are among the most popular trends of 2021, and moving forward. Eclectic blends of siding colors, designs and textures are the future of exterior style, and give you the perfect opportunity to express your creativity and update your home’s style. The product selection at CertainTeed offers a wide range of exterior products, giving you an unmatched place to find all your design options.
Accent areas like dormers, gables and entryways provide the perfect opportunity for mixing and matching the main exterior cladding with eye-catching touches of design that showcase individual style and creativity. Highlighting an accent not only adds curb appeal, it can also help improve a home’s market price up to 14%.
Mixing and matching color and texture in accent areas creates a distinctive home exterior. Seen here are Board & Batten in Desert Tan, Cedar Impressions® Straight Edge Perfection Shingles in Autumn Red, and STONEfacade® in Pocono Autumn.
See our new Accent brochure (CTS484) to learn more about how CertainTeed products are used to enliven the architectural accents of any style home.
Whether you are looking to completely remodel your exterior, or simply add a pinch of panache by dressing up an accent area, there are various siding options to explore in the No Place Like Home brochure (CTS435) and in the CertainTeed Siding Collection brochure (CTS001) that suit any style or budget.
Rich hues continue to be a preference for many homeowners, and we are excited to announce the availability of fresh colors across our robust siding portfolio.
New Olive Grove and Smoky Gray enter the Restoration Classic™ collection to complement a broad and consistent color offering in the Double 4″ Clapboard and Double 4.5” Dutch Lap profiles. Bermuda Blue returns to the Cedar Impressions® Double 7” Straight Edge Perfection Shingle to meet the demand for coastal colors; with Snow adding another offering in the white-color tier to complement dark soffit and accessories.
Our variegated color offerings that emulate the look of stained cedar have extended to both the Cedar Impressions and Monogram® families, as well as the accessory products that add finishing touches to your project. Whatever your color vision is, you’ll find ample opportunity to create a contrasting or complementary exterior that looks great.
Adding color to a gable is a great way to develop a unique aesthetic that will be visible from multiple angles. Here, Cedar Impressions Individual Sawmill Shingles in Driftwood Blend are used in the gable to complement the Monogram Clapboard in Autumn Red.
If pops of color aren’t to your liking, the classically elegant design of white siding with black trim is always in style. With our addition of the color Snow to the Cedar Impressions Double 7″ Straight Edge Perfection 3G shingle line, you now have even more versatility to give your home a timeless and chic aesthetic.
When mixing and matching, texture can truly make a visual impact. With a variety of textures that emulate the look and feel of natural materials – from the smooth finish of sanded, painted wood siding in the Restoration Classic family to the rough-sawn cedar and hand-split wood shakes in the Cedar Impressions family – our products offer authentic, long-lasting charm. Further, vinyl profiles such as our Carolina Beaded™ and Board & Batten feature an authentic dimensionality that showcase similarly to textured finishes.
Our recently released Cedar Impressions Perfection Shapes are excellent for adding texture in accent areas. Featuring three classic designs that have the look and feel of decorative cedar shingles, they are available in a wide selection of colors and offer long-lasting performance with minimal maintenance.
Our STONEfaçade® panelized stone veneer system is another excellent way to accent your home. Often seen decorating an entryway, bump out, or knee wall, it is sure to give your home a natural look. With its natural stone-inspired dimensionality and a multi-color selection rooted in earthy tones, STONEfaçade can blend effortlessly with any design.
Adding decorative trim to your home’s exterior is a charming enhancement to showcase your creativity. Practicalities covered with our maintenance-free products leave you with the creative freedom to accent your home’s architectural design by highlighting textures or framing your home’s exterior. Please see our Finishing Touches brochure (CTS373) and Vinyl Carpentry® Decorative Trim brochure (CTS160) for visual inspiration and product information.
Outdoor living spaces are a great way to further accentuate an exterior, and our EverNew® decking makes a great addition to any home. Constructed from highly-durable vinyl, EverNew features an easy-to-clean, non-slip surface and has multiple baluster and rail styles available. Also, with certification from the National Green Building Standard, all options are both trending in style and sustainably design.
