Choose the Right Siding for Your Home

Choosing the right siding for your home could involve more options than you realize. Some people think it's just a matter of choosing the color and that's it. However, you can personalize your home's exterior just like you would the interior.

Choosing the color is the first step, let Midwest Builders provide you with some tips for making sure you have the siding you want.

choose the right siding

Through Thick or Thin

Paneling comes in different widths. The architectural design of your home can factor into what width you choose. Colonial homes look better with a wider panel that will add to the stately appearance of the house's facade. On the other hand, a ranch house will benefit from a narrower width. This style of siding makes the home look taller.

Up and Down or Side to Side

You can choose siding that runs horizontally or vertically. The home's architecture again plays a role in what will look best. Traditional homes will usually have horizontal siding. These are usually found on Colonial and Cape Cod-style homes. Vertical siding makes homes look taller, so you may find this on a ranch or other one-story home.

Mix It Up

We've seen some great looking homes that used different textures around the exterior of their home. Having gables with a different look than the siding can add dimension to your house.

Go With What You Like

At the end of the day, what matters is that you like the look of your home. Siding should be replaced every ten years, so you should be happy with the appearance. In addition to improving the appearance of your home, today's siding can improve the energy efficiency of your home.
