The Top Trends in Home Exterior Remodeling for Denver & Northern Colorado Homes

Denver and Northern Colorado are known for picturesque landscapes and a place that also has dynamic weather. From snow storms, to hail, from 100+ MPH wind, and to 100+ temperatures in the summer. Trends in home exterior remodeling are not just about aesthetic appeal but also about sustainability, durability, and energy efficiency. Northern Lights Exteriors is excited to guide you through the top trends shaping home exteriors in Denver.

Bold and Natural Colors

Exterior colors are all about making a statement while echoing in outdoor spaces. Neutral and natural colors are popular for deck and patio surfaces, complementing the bold and earthy tones used on home exteriors. Earthy tones like forest green, deep blues, and terracotta are popular, along with bold colors like charcoal and black for a modern twist. These colors enhance the aesthetic appeal and complement the natural landscape.

Mixed Materials and Textures

Mixing different materials and textures is a trend that adds depth and character to exteriors. Combining stone with siding or metal accents creates a unique and modern look. This trend allows homeowners to showcase their personality in the neighborhood..

Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Materials

You moved here for a reason, you enjoy the natural environment. Whether it is wide open skies, the view of mountains and trees, or fresh air. Denver homeowners continue to lean towards environmentally friendly options when it comes to their home’s exterior.. Sustainable materials like recycled steel siding, reclaimed wood, and composite roofing are gaining popularity. For decks and patios, eco-friendly materials like composite decking or reclaimed wood are in demand. These eco-friendly materials offer durability and low maintenance, perfect for the city’s varied climate. All materials we recommend are suggested because they shouldn’t end up in landfills after the next hail storm.

Energy-Efficient Windows

In Denver’s varied climate, energy-efficient windows are essential, we don’t sell anything that is considered less. The trend is toward installing windows that maintain a comfortable indoor temperature, reduce energy bills, and reduce carbon footprint. Windows that are often double or triple-pane with insulating gasses like argon, feature low-E glass coatings that reflect heat while allowing light, Insulated fiberglass or vinyl frames and window tinting enhance energy efficiency and UV protection. We are part of the RENU Colorado Energy Program and help our clients qualify for low rates and potential rebates for window replacement projects. We advise homeowners to seek ENERGY STAR and National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) certifications when selecting windows, as these certifications indicate efficiency and high performance in reducing energy bills and carbon footprint.

Outdoor Living Spaces

  • Decks: Looking for a great place to rest and relax or are you more the social butterfly, dreaming of ways to bring all your friends together while enjoying your outdoor space. Multi-level and wraparound decks are trending. They provide ample space for outdoor dining and lounging, with materials chosen for durability and ease of maintenance. There are even options that don’t absorb heat and burn your bare feet these days. 
  • Patios: Designers create patios as extensions of the living space, incorporating features like built-in benches, fire pits, and outdoor kitchens. 
  • Pergolas: Modern pergolas are no longer just decorative. They are functional spaces equipped with features like retractable covers, lighting, and even heating systems, allowing them to be used year-round.

Durable and Stylish Roofing

In Denver’s unpredictable weather, selecting a suitable roofing material is vital. Current trends favor durable materials like metal roofing, asphalt shingles, and stone-coated steel, known for their longevity, aesthetic appeal, and resistance to weather elements. Asphalt shingles, especially, are known for their classic look and affordability. Stone-coated steel roofs offer the durability of steel with the appearance of traditional materials. Bottom line, we will help you pick materials that won’t end up in local landfills after the next storm and go with the architecture of your home.

  • James Hardie Fiber Cement Siding: Renowned for its durability and fire resistance, James Hardie siding offers excellent investment returns while providing a classic look.
