How to Mix & Match Your Home’s Siding to Achieve the Ultimate Curb Appeal

Aug 13, 2019

Two-story house with several blended types of siding on facadeOne of the latest trends in exterior remodeling involves using different types of siding to spice up a home’s façade or draw attention to interesting architectural features, such as gables, dormers, and entranceways. If you’ve been admiring the sophisticated appearance of homes using this technique, you should know that there are practically an infinite number of ways to achieve it. For example, you can mix and match different siding styles, choosing lap siding as your primary style and then adding cedar shakes or board and batten siding to the gables. You can choose one dominant color for most of the siding on your home, then clad selected areas with siding that’s a slightly different shade or even a completely different color to add contrast. You can also give your home a touch of distinction with stucco or stone veneer accents.

Although there’s no limit to the ways you can mix and match siding to pep up your exterior home décor, there are plenty of ways to unintentionally stray from the coherent, blended effect you undoubtedly want. For instance, you’ll want to consider the size, shape, and architectural style of your home when choosing your siding and color variations. In fact, even your home’s location – such as in a suburban neighborhood or a more rural setting – can have a bearing on whether your mixed siding selections result in a tasteful, blended effect or a house the neighbors would rather not live next to.

Our Customers LOVE The Results

"We had a fantastic experience with Jo Co Siding and Windows. Justin came to our home to look at our windows, make recommendations, and provide us with a bid. He was well informed, genuine, and did not pressure us at all. The installers were respectful of our home and very friendly. We had 4 windows installed. We opted to change our kitchen windows to full glass "picture windows" and they look amazing!”

"Amazing customer service with Justin. Everyone who worked on replacing all 15 windows in our house were excellent. We will continue to use them for all of our exterior home improvement needs. We received a fair quote without the extra nonsense. We can now enjoy the great KC fall weather with our windows open.”

"Justin was great to work with. He helped us through the decisions for three new doors for our home and he had a wonderful sense of design as it relates to our mid-century home. The company was easy to work with, communicated appropriately and the workmanship was top-notch. We are so pleased with the final product. Not the cheapest doors but I am confident they will be with us for decades to come!”
