Standout Suburban Ranches

Mar 20, 2016

ranch-style-home-wood-sidingRanch style homes—one-story, rectangular L or U shaped design—became popular in America in the 1950s, and we mean popular. In fact, the architectural style can sometimes take over an entire neighborhood.
Unfortunately, ranches can tend to look similar all lined up, but with various siding colors and styles, you can change that, and achieve a ranch style home with a totally one-of-a-kind look.
Besides the various color options in the James Hardie ColorPlus® Technology palette, you can clad your home’s exterior with a range of choices including, HardiePlank® horizontal lap siding, HardiePanel® vertical siding, and HardieShingle® siding.
Here are a few standout ranch-style homes, each more unique looking than the rest.

  • Bark Beauty: HardiePlank lap siding in Timber Bark, HardieTrim® boards in Arctic White.
  • Countryman Red: HardiePlank lap siding in Countrylane Red, HardieTrim boards in Arctic White.
  • Refreshed Blue: HardiePlank lap siding in Evening Blue, HardieTrim boards in Arctic White.

Make your ranch style home unlike others on your street—have fun with your siding and trim design. After all, the style may be common, but the siding and trim doesn’t have to be.
