Your replacement siding plays a key role in the aesthetic appeal of your home. While one siding material is enough for many homeowners, you may want to consider using more than one material to add more visual interest and beauty to your exteriors. Expert Contracting presents a guide on combining different siding materials and profiles.
Use More Than One Color
As a rule, the ideal color palette for your home’s exterior should have three shades to highlight the walls, roof and accents. It can be challenging to use more than one color for your siding, but with the help of a professional siding contractor, you can add personality and aesthetics to your home’s exterior. For instance, a contractor may recommend choosing siding profile colors that contrast or complement each other.
Match Siding Color With Exteriors
When deciding the color for your two siding materials, don’t forget to consider the shade of the rest of your home’s exteriors. You may also draw inspiration from your neighbors’ homes so you can fit in with your community’s color scheme. If you use different shades of the same color for your siding materials, keep in mind that they should create a contrast with the colors of the roof, entry door and window frames.
Apply Different Textures and Profiles
To ensure the color of your siding materials will stand out, you may want to add some textural variety. For best results, make sure that one siding system has a smoother finish while the other has a more jagged look. In addition to that, remember that using different profiles can help draw one’s attention. Some homeowners prefer horizontal and shake siding because of how these profiles fit together.
