Siding Trends in Motion!

Updated: Oct 13, 2018


For you Building Science nerds out there, here's an animation about the history of home siding materials that was recently published by Fixr. Click on the picture to see it move.


It's based on U.S. Census Bureau data. The blog post also includes some good info on the pros and cons of different siding types.


Siding use differs radically by region. Up here in Minnesota, both brick and stucco would play a much smaller role in home design today. No doubt stucco would dominate if it was based on data from Arizona. Too bad the chart doesn't show that level of detail!


Thanks to the Builders Association of Minnesota and Cool Infographics for making me aware of this item!
