Decisions, decisions, decisions! If you’re not known as a home designer, then choosing the right trimmings for your home can be more than just a little bit daunting. It can be difficult trying to ascertain whether something will actually look good on your home, or if it just looks great in pictures or in the showroom.
What is siding?
Siding is the part of your home that is on the exterior walls. This is that wood look paneled exterior that is put over the concrete of your walls to make them look more clean and attractive. Siding comes in a range of materials, and in a wide variety of colors, lengths, and thicknesses.
This is why it can be difficult to choose which siding is the best for your home.
Tip 1: Look around your neighborhood
The best inspiration comes from stealing ideas from other people! Or rather, making them your own. Take a walk around your neighborhood to have a look at what your neighbors have on their homes. You can pick out houses that look similar to yours and then see what kind of siding they have on their house. Take pictures of any that you like the look of so that you can compare it with what’s available when you get back home.
Tip 2: Spring for energy conserving siding
Want to save on your energy bills? Who doesn’t! This is great because you can get special siding that can help keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer, which helps to conserve energy. This special type of siding is called Thermar8 siding. This is a top of the line siding product. It’s also fire resistant, pest repellant, mold resistant, and tough, too. The siding on your home should last for many years to come so it is important that you choose quality materials to make sure you get the most out of it!
Tip 3: Look at the colors of your home
The other decision that you will have to make about your siding is what color it should be. The wrong color choice will leave you dissatisfied and wanting to paint over it asap. So, take a good look at the outside of your home and the colors that are already there. Check out your surroundings, too, the trees, and the homes on either side of you. Picking out a color that matches these colors in a softer hue will usually be your best bet.
Tip 4: Get a second opinion
Two heads are always better than one. Ask your family and friends to have a look over the options that you have picked out to make sure that you are making the right choice for your home.
