While there are a vast number of siding colors and styles available for your exterior remodeling project, it can still be difficult to determine which are the best ones that suit your home’s visual aesthetic. Fortunately, this can be easier to overcome when working with trusted siding and commercial roofing contractors who’ll help you design the best exterior profile for your home. They’ll also help you choose the right siding profiles for your home, and they’re more than just the usual horizontal siding and trim!
To help you out, Larry Walty Roofing has put together some of the most popular profiles that you can mix and match for a more unique and stunning home exterior:
Horizontal Siding Profiles
- Dutch Lap – this type of siding profile features a groove cut out of the top of each horizontal board. This provides more visual contracts across its surface, with each panel casting some shadow on the grooved panel beneath it.
- Traditional Lap – This is one of the most common and simplest types of siding profiles available. It features siding boards that are partially layered on top of the other, creating an effective water barrier at an affordable cost.
- Beaded – This profile can be seen as a more updated version of the traditional lap siding. It features a “bead” at the bottom of the board which provides a more textured surface than its traditional lap counterpart.
Vertical Siding Profiles
If you think that horizontal siding is too plain, then you can consider selecting vertical profiles for your home’s exterior. Many that are available in horizontal siding are also offered in vertically oriented varieties. They’re also not as common as horizontal profiles, but you can consult with your exterior and commercial roof repair contractor to know which vertical siding patterns are ideal for your home.
Apart from vertical panel siding (which is similar to traditional lap but vertically oriented), you can also consider the board and batten profile. This consists of vertical boards that are placed with battens covering their cracks to create an effective waterproof surface. Originally made from wood, they’re now more available in vinyl and fiber cement siding for more durability and affordability!
Which Profile Should You Choose?
Whether you’re updating your home or finishing it with new siding, you’ll want the profile to perfectly match its architecture and visual appeal. You can always look at other homes in your neighborhood to draw some inspiration, and you can work with an expert to help you make an informed decision. So, when it comes to top-notch siding installation and roof repair, there’s only one name you can count on!
