Did you know that your home’s frontage and exterior appearance contributes to around 40% of your home’s overall curb appeal? It’s one of the reasons many homeowners find decorating their facade a tricky and complex job.
With this in mind, how do you make your home stand out? Twin Cities Siding Professionals explains how.
Siding is Better Than Paint
Painting your exteriors has always been the standard, but these days siding is fast becoming the top choice for exteriors. It’s simply the smarter and better option for exterior covering. Unlike paint, siding lasts longer and doesn’t need that much maintenance to keep it looking like brand new.
Additionally, you have more visual options when you pick siding. Our team uses James Hardie Siding, and this fiber cement covering can replicate cedar wood and wood shake siding, not to mention the endless coloring options. Whether your home possesses a classical or contemporary design, you can’t go wrong with this siding.
Function Over Form
As far as facade looks go, remember: form always follows function. The performance of your exterior covering should always be your priority over the aesthetics. Siding, after all, is responsible for protecting your home from the elements.
Exterior Materials Follow Architectural Design
Finally, and most importantly, the exterior covering your home should always follow the architectural design of your house. A more contemporary frontage will really look out of place in a traditionally designed home and vice-versa. You’re in luck, though, since James Hardie siding is flexible enough to replicate any exterior surface—even wood. The best part? It doesn’t have the weakness of wood and could last far longer than any wood species.
