Selecting the perfect design for your home’s exterior is a fun and exciting process, but it can also be confusing. You want your exterior to stand out, while still harmonizing with the other houses on your street. In today’s post, Universal Roofing and Exteriors shares some handy design basics you can use to create an exterior that is both stunning and balanced.
Stand Out With Your Roofing
Your home’s roofing system is one of the most prominent components of your exterior and is one of the first things people will see from the curb.
Asphalt shingles remain a reliable choice because of their durability, versatility, and affordability. They’re also a lightweight material compared to newer roofing materials, which means they’re easier to install.
Siding and Your Frontage
Your siding gives your home texture, which constitutes the majority of your property’s facade. As your local siding contractor, we recommend vinyl siding. Unlike wood, vinyl is stronger and virtually immune to water damage and rotting. Wood is also restricted to wood-stain colors, while vinyl comes in an extended color palette ranging from bright to deep colors.
Windows and Home Hardware
Make sure you pick your door hardware according to your home’s architectural design. As a general rule, classic homes can go all out in aesthetics for their doors and windows, while modern and contemporary homes should feature hardware that adheres to the form-follows-function adage.
