Animated History of Home Siding Materials

Cool Infographics: Charts and graphs can communicate data; infographics turn data into information. Animated History of Home Siding Materials Animation

Fixr has published their research of How the Use of Home Siding Materials Has Changed Over 40 Years as this animated data visualization changing the proportions over time.

It’s a little odd to watch because it starts out looking like a bad pie chart with cute rounded corners. This is really a simple version of a voronoi diagram where the area of each section represents the proportional values.

The video above was created using the results from the census on exterior finishes of single-family homes. It looks at the historical use of wood, brick, stucco, vinyl, fiber and ‘other’ options starting in 1977 and ending in 2017. The census accounts for up to 1.6 million houses each year and includes homes across the U.S.A., so provides a broad look at how finishes have risen and fallen in popularity over the full period. These changes in popularity not only account for aesthetic fashionability but also availability, cost and practicality. From a trend perspective, each finish dominated a specific decade, in terms of houses completed in that finish. Brick dominated the 70s, wood dominated the 80s, vinyl, which only became available in the 90s, dominated that decade, and stucco and fiber cement dominated the 2000s. ‘Other’ materials also saw their highest use during the late 80s and 90s.
