Roughly 28% of new single-family homes started in 2021 used stucco as the most common principal siding material, according to annual data from the Census Bureau’s Survey of Construction (SOC). Other commonly used exterior wall materials included vinyl siding (24%), fiber cement siding, including Hardiplank or Hardiboard (23%), and brick or brick veneer (19%), Eye on Housing reports.

Just 4% of homes started in 2021 had wood or wood products as the principal exterior wall material, while 1% included stone or rock siding as the primary exterior material.

Although stucco was the most common siding material in the country as a whole, its popularity is concentrated in a few parts of the country.

Vinyl siding was used on 74 percent of the new homes started in the Middle Atlantic, 66 percent in New England, 63 percent in the East North Central and 45 percent in the West North Central.
