When the emphasis is on the archways, you might want to opt for an all-white octagonal trey in the formal dining room. This provides formality, while keeping most of the attention elsewhere.

When you enter your dining room through the wide swoop of this dramatic arched entry, the bold red and white of this traditional dining room reflects confidence. When there's that much going on in the rest of the room, use your trey ceiling as a punctuation mark, like this.

Trending New Home Exteriors for 2019 | Exterior Siding in NC

Posted by Stanton Homes on Tue, Oct 16, 2018 @ 20:10 PM

North Carolina New Home Exteriors for 2019

Exterior Siding Types

What new home exteriors in North Carolina are the most popular?

There are 6 types of exterior siding materials most often used when building a new home in North Carolina.

Here are photos and descriptions of the most popular exterior siding types in NC. As you can see, the very most popular exteriors involve a blend of several materials to add dimension and emphasize details.

1. Fiber Cement (HardiBoard) Exterior

Fiber Cement Siding (HardiBoard) is the most popular choice for exterior siding in North Carolina new homes. 

- Fiber cement boards hold up better than wood in the local climate, although it is typically manufactured with a realistic wood grain effect.

- Painting (and repainting over the years) is required for fiber cement siding. 

- Fiber cement can be applied in different shapes and styles, such as Board and Batt or Shake.

Some communities with an HOA require fiber cement siding on all new homes - typically with accents in brick or stone.

Some manufacturers offer a 50 year warranty on fiber cement siding. 

2. Stone Exterior

Stone exteriors can be natural stone or simulated stone, and is is one of the most expensive types of home exterior materials.

Many North Carolina homeowners choose to add stone as an accent, in combination with other materials.

The most common usage of stone accents are Stone accents can be:

 - One or more full walls (generally on the front of the home)

 - Half walls or water tables along the front and side of a home (generally about 2-4 feet tall spans)

3. Brick Exterior

 

Brick exteriors (composed of clay bricks) are a classic exterior that remains popular due to durability, strength, and low maintenance.

There are many different shapes, colors, sizes, and styles of brick to choose from.

 A "standard" brick is 2 by 4 by 8 inches.

Other brick options include:

 - "King": Thicker, longer bricks
 - "Roman": Thinner, longer bricks

Brick exteriors are more costly than vinyl or fiber cement, but less than full stone exteriors.

4. Board and Batt Exterior (Board and Batten)

 

002-189BrookhavenWay-20180829.jpg

Board and batt exteriors can be composed of vinyl or fiber cement. 

A board and batt design alternates wide boards and narrow strips (battens). While board and batt can be horizontal, it is generally used as a vertical design.

No longer just for cottage and barn style designs, board and batt has become a popular accent for many styles of homes. 

5. Shake Exterior

Shake exteriors are traditionally made from split wood, such as cedar. However, in the North Carolina climate, it is far more popular to have the shakes made with the primary material of the exterior - typically fiber cement or vinyl.

Shakes are generally placed as an "irregular" pattern for artistic appeal.

They are typically placed as accents in various locations on the front of the home.

6. Stucco Exterior

Stucco (composed of plaster and cement applied over a mesh screen), while very popular in some regions of the nation, is rarely used as a home exterior in North Carolina, due mainly to climate conditions.   It is also one of the most expensive siding options in North Carolina. 

When stucco is applied to new homes in NC, it is typically as an accent, such as the opening entry to this home.

Stucco can be smooth or textured, painted or pigmented.

7. Vinyl Exterior

 

SawyerExterior-1

Vinyl siding (composed of PVC or polyvinyl chloride) is a popular exterior material in North Carolina due to its cost effectiveness, low maintenance and improved curb appeal.

A high quality vinyl exterior comes in a variety of shades, tones and thicknesses and does not need to be repainted like fiber cement or stucco.
