When it comes to siding, it’s best to invest in products that will last a long time and provide superior weather protection for your home. Your home’s façade is equally as important as its interior. So, when you replace your old siding, you have to carefully consider your choices. Make sure you’re selecting the right material profile and color.
That said, it is important to get the right combination of these elements so you can reap maximum benefits for your home. Here are a few helpful tips when combining siding materials and profiles.
Finding the Right Combination
Combining different siding materials and profiles can enhance curb appeal and increase the value of your house. It can also be a cost-effective way of achieving your desired exterior since it allows you to combine expensive and cheaper siding options. Mixing different materials also gives your home a unique look and separates your residence from others in the neighborhood.
- Consider Textures and Profiles
The roughness or smoothness of your siding is a design feature. For your siding installation project, you can try using a smooth finish on one section and a rough texture on another. The variety of textures will give character to your home, making it stand out in your area. This also allows you to experiment with various siding profiles. Similar to contrasting colors and textures, contrasting siding patterns can enhance the architectural style of your home. If you have a two-story home, for instance, you can use conventional Dutch lap siding on the first floor and whimsical scalloped siding panels on the second.
- Combine Different Colors
A typical home’s exterior color palette consists of at least three colors, which are used to enhance the roof, siding, trim and other exterior features. However, if you are utilizing two distinct types of siding, you should use two distinct shades for them to make the material change more obvious. Naturally, you will want to choose colors that compliment the rest of your home’s exterior.
