Your siding of choice will have a huge impact on your overall home aesthetics.

Tips to Ensure Your Siding Matches Your Home


Without proper consideration, there will be a lot of problems along the way, such as unnecessary siding replacements and other exterior services. Your color and texture preference, for example, can mean the difference between having a sophisticated-looking home and one that turns heads for the wrong reasons.

The siding materials and style you choose should match the house and neighborhood as well as reflect your personal style. Here are some of the tips to help you out:

1. Look Around

Take a walk around your neighborhood. Look at the area to get some ideas about the right siding style for your home. You should find a house that is appealing to you. Take note of its color scheme and how it matches the overall design.

2. Consider the Roof

Your roofing design goes hand-in-hand with your siding style. Whether you’re having a roof replacement or building a new house, it’s important to match the design of your shingles to your siding, especially if you have a traditionally styled property. As for color, the general rule is a light-colored roof can go with darker siding and vice-versa.

3. Day and Weather 

Always check the weather. Different weather conditions can have a slight influence on your selection process. For example, a cloudy and humid day can make the siding color appear different. A sunny day is your best bet. When you’re walking down the street to check for design inspiration, always take into account the current weather conditions.
