The siding plays a big part in your home’s appearance. That said, you need to make sure that your home’s siding panels will properly match the rest of your home’s exterior or your entire property will look off. Here are a few tips from the leading siding and roofing expert in the area that will help you pick the right siding panels.
Pay Attention to the Home’s Architectural Style
Certain home styles look best with specific siding panels. For example, contemporary home designs favor sidings with neutral colors and smooth finishes, while something like a mediterranean home looks great with either brick or shingle siding with earthy brown, red, or warm colors.
Don’t Forget the Roof
The roof and siding are the two biggest components of your home’s exterior. Having the two components clash colors, textures or even lines will make the home look off. Commercial roofing contractors recommend horizontal siding panels for low-slope roofs to make the home look wider. On the other hand, vertical siding helps accentuate the profile of a high-slope roof.
Remember the Trim
Your home’s window, roof and door trims serve as the details for your home’s overall look. You can choose to pick a siding color that closely matches the trims to subdue these details. Alternatively, you can pick a contrasting color to make the trim stand out.
Don’t Forget Your Preferences!
A home that looks good isn’t really good unless you actually like it. Siding and residential roofing experts say that you should narrow down your list of siding options early on using the previous criteria but you should still pick an option that you like the best. After all, your home’s looks should also act as a reflection of your personality.
