Choosing the Right Siding for your Carolinas Home with Hatch

Styling Your Home’s New Siding

Hardie Plank in Winston Salem, NC

With just a quick internet search for new siding for your home, it can be overwhelming seeing all of the materials, styles, and textures of siding available. Matching your home’s new siding to the style of home and your personal taste can be tricky, but luckily, Hatch Homes is here to help.

Firstly, Hatch offers the Hatch Home Visualizer to help homeowners make such a momentous decision. By building a 3-D rendered model of YOUR home, you can virtually test the various materials, styles, and colors to find just the right fit before making any final decisions. With this, our homeowners can proceed with confidence since they know they will love the final products before a single board has ever been placed. Still, here are a few key points to keep in mind when exploring your options!


One of the first decisions you may find yourself confronted with is choosing the material for your new siding project. From vinyl to fiber cement and stone veneer, it can be tough to choose the right one. So, here are a few things to keep in mind for each major choice. First, we have vinyl siding. This is a homeowner’s favorite since it combines budget consideration, versatility, and style in one package. With versatile application options and nearly endless style and color combinations, it makes a good jumping-off point. However, though it comes in much less expensive than other options, there are a few drawbacks in the department of durability.

Then we have fiber cement, often supplied by James Hardie. This is the premier choice for homeowners who want the best without compromise. It takes the style options and versatility of vinyl but adds industry-leading durability offerings as well. Along with being fire and pest-resistant, it also boasts decades of solid performance. Along with this, it is far less likely to warp, discolor, or fade over time and exposure to the elements.


Aside from personal choices like color, style is the final consideration for homeowners before moving forward with their exterior renovation project. Ths choice carries across both vinyl and fiber cement and can transform your home. Many of the most popular options include lap siding, shingle, shake, board & batten, and plank siding.

While all of these options are potentially viable for any home, the decision really comes down to where your home is located and in what style was built. For example, a modern farmhouse may not look the part in shake and shingle siding, but sleek and modern board & batten in white with black trim may be just the ticket. Alternatively, a beach bungalow in the Outer Banks may be much better suited for Cedarmill shingle siding to evoke the classic bungalow feel.
