This time of year can be hectic, what with Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, but it won’t be long before folks around the Twin Cities will be propping their feet up in front of the fire to relax and enjoy some much needed recharging. We find this is the perfect time of year for dreaming and planning those remodeling projects you’ve wanted to do to your home. If new siding is on your list, just take a look at a few of our projects and maybe you’ll get some inspiration.
We install a number of high-quality siding materials – insulated CraneBoard® vinyl siding, LP Smartside® engineered wood, fiber cement siding from The James Hardie Company®, and Versetta Stone® from Boral. The options we offer allow our clients to customize the look of the exterior of their homes in many ways. There are almost unlimited colors to choose from as well as different styles and textures. And you can even combine several different siding materials for a truly one-of-a-kind look for your home. In fact, many of our customers have chosen to do just that.
For example, we have installed accent areas of Versetta Stone® along with Hardie siding. Just take a look at the home shown here – look how your eyes are drawn to the main entry area. And by having the stone panels installed at the lower edge of the home, it makes a very natural transition into the landscaping.
Another thing to consider as you’re planning your siding look is the use of contrasting colors. By mixing dark siding with icy white trim, the architectural details of your house will really stand out, as they do in this home.
And don’t overlook how the strategic placement of one splash of color can draw attention to your home, especially its front door. The owner of this small home also chose Versetta Stone® to accent the entry area, but just look how that brilliant cherry red front door makes a difference in this otherwise neutral toned exterior. Also note how the white trim, gutters and fascia boards work well with the various tones and textures of the exterior materials.
