Remodeling your home’s exterior is a big project, but once you've chosen the material for it—whether that be vinyl siding or brick pavers—you're halfway there, right?
Not quite. For example, there are many types of vinyl siding aside from horizontal or vertical cladding options. And the proper type will depend on your home’s architectural style and location—you want to make sure you choose the right one before installation in order to enhance your curb appeal.
Let's take a look at some of the most common types of siding installation.
Lap siding is the most traditional of profiles, because it follows the lines of a home's architecture. Lap siding can be found in many different widths and works well on older homes that have colonial styles.
Dutch Lap Siding
The Dutch lap method for siding creates deeper shadow lines between the planks, creating a more sharply defined lapping than other techniques. This type of cladding is best suited for smaller homes so as not to overpower them with its size—but it can be used on larger houses if desired.
This type of siding is characterized by beaded seams, rounded notches on its bottom edge, and a shadow cast that's less pronounced than other styles. Beaded siding, a popular choice for traditional homes in the past, remains an upscale option. The addition of this distinctive look onto traditionally handmade siding was common only during high-end renovations or new construction projects before—and it's still used on such estates today.
With vinyl siding, you can create the look of wood without worrying about any maintenance requirements. Since wood tends to be expensive and requires considerable maintenance, many people choose vinyl for their home’s exterior walls. Vinyl imitation logs can give your home the look of a charming cottage, and because you can choose from many different colors to match your house or yard's decorating scheme it helps create an even more realistic appearance.
Polypropylene Shake siding
The polypropylene shake and shingle is a great faux-cedar cladding option; caring for it is easier than most real wood products. This vinyl alternative is perfect for cottage-style homes, giving them beautiful rustic charm—without side effects such as mites or rotting wood!
Whether you choose an ordinary profile or something more unconventional, there are plenty of options when it comes to choosing a color scheme. Although searching for the perfect house can be time-consuming and frustrating, doing so is well worth your effort if finding happiness in a home is important to you.
Choosing the right option depends on many factors. Consultation with an experienced company will allow you to choose the style that will meet all your expectations and fit in your budget. This is a decision for many years, so do not make it without the help of a specialist. That's what the experts are for.
