Kansas City Exterior Home Upgrade: Mix and Match Materials for the Wow Factor

Apr 30, 2023

Upscale two-story duplex with tan horizontal James Hardie siding and stone veneer accents on porch columns and center section of the building.Whether you have a plain-Jane home that you’d love to see dressed up in a tasteful mix of textures and colors or your home has gables and porch columns that are just crying out for extra attention, you can get the “wow” factor you crave by mixing and matching exterior cladding materials. In fact, combining different colors and siding materials has been the dominant exterior home design trend in the Kansas City metro area for many years, and it shows no sign of waning.

Why has this trend become so popular? Here are a few of the reasons why so many homeowners opt for home makeovers that incorporate multiple siding styles and materials:

  • New-home construction often features this approach, so an exterior home remodel that follows suit will exude the same energy and freshness as the newer homes in the neighborhood.
  • Mixing siding styles, colors, and textures in a tasteful way creates an eye-pleasing effect that a bland or monotone façade can’t match.
  • Every home should boast a one-of-a-kind appearance that reflects the homeowner’s unique sense of style. Mixing and matching siding materials creates a façade that’s unlikely to be duplicated.

Secrets to Success With Your Exterior Home Upgrade

Replacing your home siding is one of the most significant home improvements you’ll ever make. If you’re like many homeowners, you approach the task with a little trepidation as well as excitement, and the idea of mixing and matching siding materials may heighten both of those feelings. After all, you want beautiful results that you’ll be proud to show off for many years!

At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., we’ve been helping homeowners in the Kansas City area get magnificent exterior remodeling results for over 40 years. Here are the two most important tips we can offer you:

Pick the Best Replacement Siding

If you’re in the Kansas City metro area, your top siding choice is James Hardie® fiber cement siding. This brand of siding is ideal for the local climate, and James Hardie also leads the industry in offering homeowners a bevy of aesthetic options to choose from. Whether your home is large or small, traditional or ultra-modern, or any architectural design in between, you’re sure to find the perfect combination of colors to showcase its distinctive beauty.  

Choose the Right Siding Replacement Contractor

Many people think of siding installation expertise when they evaluate the companies available for their home siding replacement project. And installation skills are certainly important. But the siding replacement process starts long before any new cladding is affixed to your home.

When it’s time to re-side your home, you’ll want to partner with a siding contractor that has demonstrated superb knowledge of the siding and trim options available to you. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., those options include not only James Hardie siding but also gorgeous manufactured-stone veneer and versatile acrylic stucco siding, which can be used to accentuate your home’s best exterior features.

The best siding contractor will also offer a variety of exterior home design services that can help you feel confident about your siding and trim choices. At Johnson County Siding & Window Co., for example, we can take a smartphone photo of your house and use high-tech software to generate 3D digital renderings that will show you exactly how your home will look when we apply various color and style options. We also offer in-person consultations with our own award-winning, in-house exterior home design professional.
