Whether you’re replacing your siding as part of a hail storm damage restoration project, or simply looking to give your home a full exterior makeover, choosing the perfect siding profile should be at the top of your priority list.
There are perhaps dozens of different styles you can choose from and every single one of them will have their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let our experts at Timberland Exteriors give you a few tips on how to choose an effective siding design for your home.
Horizontal Versus Vertical Siding
During your initial design consultation with your siding installation and residential roofing service, you may be presented with a choice between horizontal and vertical siding profiles. Vertical siding is eye-catching but this type is more suited to rural single-story homes like the ranch-style, mainly because it can make your building appear taller. On the other hand, horizontal siding is more versatile and works well with classics like Cape Cod or Colonial, or even modern contemporary designs.
The Right Size Siding
Profile size should be the next feature you should consider. Stately manor-like homes like a Colonial benefit greatly from larger siding profiles to fill out most of their wall space. However, you can also use siding sizes to add some dimension to much smaller homes.
Ultimately, design choices are completely up to you and your exterior remodeling contractor should also take your preferences into consideration. Don’t be afraid to make suggestions or to discuss in detail how you visualize the final product will look like. Your contractor should be able to provide you with references and looks that will fit your goals perfectly.
