Any design mistake with your siding, the largest part of your exterior, will stand out — and not in a good way. That’s why you need to take extra care when re-siding your home. After all, one mismatched element is all it takes to ruin your home’s curb appeal.
To help you re-side your home successfully, D-Wing Construction, a top roof installation contractor in the state, shares some tips below.
Look for Real-Life Examples
There’s no need to come up with a unique color scheme from scratch; you can get some inspiration from other houses. Looking up photos on sites like Pinterest is a good start, but they’re not too reliable. For all you know, these photos may have been digitally altered.
You need to look for real-life examples. Go for a drive through your neighborhood or to nearby residential areas. Lighting affects how colors look, so it would be a good idea to take a drive at different times during the day.
Plan Your Budget
Once you’ve settled on a color scheme, you need to plan your budget. It would be a good idea to gather estimates from contractors; most provide them at no cost.
Keep in mind that the most coordinated or eye-catching color scheme is useless if the siding used is of low quality. To make sure your home’s exterior stands out, choose high-quality products from reputable brands.
Take Into Account the Neighborhood’s Aesthetic
One more thing: as much as you want your house to stand out, you don’t want it to stand out too much. A color scheme that clashes with other homes’ design schemes is an eyesore and may even bring down the curb appeal and property values of the entire neighborhood.
Can’t decide on a color scheme? When in doubt, it’s best to consult an experienced contractor.
