Most Popular Siding Choices in 2020


The primary purpose of your home’s siding is to protect the outside (and the contents inside of your home) from unruly weather.  Severe wind, rain, hail and snow can wreak havoc on your home.  Properly installed siding can shield and help to insulate your home.  Siding is important to the health and stability of your home.  Not only does it enhance your home’s curb appeal and help to weather the elements, but siding also deters dirt, moisture and insects.

But not all siding is created equally.  Vinyl, aluminum, or wood panel siding varies in durability, aesthetics and price.  At Best Contracting, we offer residential siding replacement and siding repair.  We conduct free siding inspections for our clients and then work with them to find the best option for their home – whether it’s standard clap-board, dutchlap, vinyl cedar impressions, cement siding, beaded siding or an attempt to match your current siding color.  

Here at Best Contracting, our experienced company offers a vast amount of siding, trim and soffit options that will make your home stand out and be unique to your personal taste.

Best Contracting only trusts top-of-the-line and reputable manufacturers, such as James Hardie, Wolf Composite and CertainTeed, to produce quality residential siding materials.  So far this year, 2020, vinyl siding has been the most popular residential siding option for Best Contracting customers.  Our manufacturers offer a variety of vinyl siding styles, including Monogram®, Mainstreet™ and Carolina Beaded™, in an array of colors.

With over 40 different color choices, selecting the right color for your home’s exterior can be a daunting task.  The most common residential vinyl siding colors picked in 2020 include Flagstone (a blue-gray color), Forest Green, Midnight Blue and Charcoal Gray.  These siding shades can be enhanced with accenting soffit, shutter, door and trim colors. 

See the suggestions below from designers and color experts on how to best pair these popular siding colors with other exterior elements:

  • Flagstone & Midnight Blue – Both of these popular vinyl siding colors fall under the blue palette.  Flagstone and Midnight Blue can combine easily with each other and work well with cool grays.  Consider pairing lighter shades from the brown/reds, yellow browns, tans/yellows and warm grays palettes to work well with blues.
  • Forest Green – This well-liked siding color works great with most cool grays and many shades from the browns/reds palette.  Forest Green can combine easier with lighter shades from the warm tans/yellows, warm grays and yellow browns palettes and the darker shades from the blues palette.
  • Charcoal Gray – This popular color falls under the cool gray category.  Combinations within the cool gray palette (Slate, Charcoal Gray, Castlestone, Driftwood Blend, Sterling Gray, Snow and Colonial White) create a unified appearance.  Typically, cool grays work best with blues and greens; however, red can make a great accent color for a cool gray home.
