Your home’s exterior is usually what your guests and neighbors first notice, so it’s important to design it carefully. Going for a mixed-texture siding profile is great for turning heads and enhancing visual appeal, but it can be difficult to choose the right combination that suits your home’s architecture. To help you out, our siding and roof repair team at Expert Contracting shares some tips.
Consider Different Profiles
Many two-siding home exteriors feature one type of pattern on the first floor and a different one on the second floor. For instance, when you can go for traditional lap siding and stone for your exteriors, we recommend selecting a profile for your stone material such as fieldstone or cobblestone. But depending on the type of pattern you choose for your siding, a smaller profile such as ledgestone can also work for your exteriors.
As you design your exterior remodeling with a trusted siding and roof replacement contractor, you need to discuss how the profile will be applied because this will influence your home’s visual appearance. Your siding profile, for instance, can have a horizontal or vertical placement, while your stone placement can be classic, cubist, stacked and mosaic.
Choose the Right Color and Accents
Your home won’t have much visual impact if you have a stone and siding profile with a similar texture or color. This is why we suggest using the colors in your chosen stone material as inspiration for the secondary body color, trim, or accent colors. Your accent colors can also be from a pre-existing color palette, but it should consist of at least two or three hues. With the right palette, the different hues should highlight the differences between the two siding systems effectively.
