Boost Home Appearance and Curb Appeal with Siding

Posted on 04. Dec, 2013 by in Siding

Adding home siding is consistently ranked as one of the best home improvements for increasing home value.  Besides protecting your home from the elements, siding adds serious aesthetic appeal, as long as it is well chosen.  Here are a few reasons that making the effort to add siding is worthwhile. 

Walls constitute most of the surface area of your home exterior, so it is not surprising that people are often drawn to look at them when they first see your home.  Tastefully chosen siding will look attractive and pull together the other exterior features of your home.  Siding can be made from a variety of materials like vinyl and wood, and it comes in a variety of styles, including shingle, vertical, and horizontal clapboard.  This means that finding the siding that will perfectly complement your home is more than possible if you put a little effort into the search.

Home siding can also enhance the appearance of features like windows by setting them off and emphasizing them.  When the colors are chosen well, the contrasts between siding and other exterior home features can make the appearance of your home eye-catching in a way that is not obnoxious.  If there are other exterior home features that you need to upgrade eventually, new siding can be an effective distraction from those flawed areas.

Choosing the right siding is an important decision, since it will be such a visible part of your home.  It is important to consider whether you want your home to stand out or blend in.  You should also make sure to respect any community rules or restrictions.  Remember that lighter colors will make your house appear roomier, while dark colors will make it seem more compact.  Finally, try to pick a color that complements the tone of other parts of your home, like the shingles or brickwork.

If you decide to make the upgrade, finding the right home siding style and color will take some honest effort.  However, the work will feel like it was more than worthwhile once you are looking at the attractive final product.
