How to Pick the Right Siding
Consider a Color Scheme
First and foremost for many people out there is making a decision on the color of siding you’d like. If you’ve owned the home for awhile you might be thinking that it’s time for a change of pace in the color department; if the home is new to you and it’s in need of repairs, this is your opportunity to figure out what you want the exterior of your home to look like. Either way, this is a good thing!
It can be overwhelming, sure, but our advice is to simply drive around in your town and see which homes catch your eye. You’ll have to be careful to consider the fact that all you’re looking for is colors that pop out at you. This can be tricky to do, of course, because some homes combine color and style so perfectly that it can be hard to differentiate.
Our other advice about color is to look for advice online. You’ll find many style guides that will help you to choose colors that are appropriate for your style of architecture or the type of mood you want to create. Have a little fun with it!
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix It Up
Now there are quite a few ways that you can mix things up, but we’re talking in this specific case about the types of materials in use. If you’re redoing the siding on your home, it’s your opportunity to change things up in a way that makes sense to you (and falls under the guidelines of your homeowner’s association or metro district).
For example, if you’re making some changes, the team at West Knox Windows and Siding could do a combination of vinyl siding installation and stacked stone installation. Or, of course, if you have vinyl now, we can replace the whole thing with stone, or vice versa. The possibilities are endless and you’re only limited by your creativity. If you’d like some advice, we’d be happy to come out to provide you with a free estimate, answer any questions you might have, or provide an eye for detail that comes after years of being in this line of work.
Think About Curb Appeal
Perhaps you’re considering selling your home in the near future. You’ve already spoken with a realtor and gotten a basic idea of what you can sell for, but is there anything you can do to help improve your resale value, pulling in more potential buyers who are enticed by the fact that you’ve already taken care of some major updates?
The subject of this blog has to do with fixing up the siding, but our team can also handle everything from replacement windows to screen room additions to gutter installations. In other words, many of the things that will be attractive to a potential buyer are things that we can handle. The choice is yours, of course, but why not (to use a time-tested old phrase) kill two birds with one stone? Either way, a boost in curb appeal can only help you to sell your home more easily, and that’s never a bad thing.
