3 Tips to Achieve Mixed-Texture Exteriors for Your Home

When you’re having a siding replacement project done for your home, most homeowners believe that the siding must be uniform on every side to increase your home’s curb appeal. This isn’t necessarily the case as according to some professionals, you are more than free to mix things up when it comes to your home’s exterior.

In this article, High Performance Homes shares some useful tips that can help you achieve a mixed-texture exterior for your home.

Play with Profiles

If you want to emphasize the changes in your siding material, make sure that there’s a dramatic shift in its cut. For instance, you can use two different siding materials for your home and have one feature horizontal planks on the first floor before using shakes or scallops for the second. That way, you can have a more playful profile for your exterior.

Use Different Colors

According to siding repair experts, a good color palette for your home’s exterior should include three different hues to accentuate its different parts. If you’re using two siding materials, on the other hand, use two distinct colors to signify the change in materials. Otherwise, your attempt to highlight the distinctiveness of the two siding systems will fail with a single hue. For instance, you can consider using one dark and one light color to emphasize the contrast of the siding.

Think About Textures

While using two different colors to show the distinctiveness of your siding, it’s not going to be enough of a visual impact if the texture lacks any variety. When it comes to this, professionals say the general rule of thumb is to use a smooth finish on one siding system and pick a rugged appearance for the other.

“This contracting company recently replaced all the windows in my home. All of the associates I interacted with along the way were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional. The way the windows were installed was done with precision and care for my home, and I did not have to pay any extra for trim around both the outside and inside of the windows. The end result is pleasing to look at, and I can already tell there’s a big difference in how insulated my home is.”
