When planning your exterior remodeling project, you should work with an experienced, professional siding contractor who can help you create a design that meets your expectations. This includes selecting the right siding profiles that not only enhance your home’s visual appeal but also improve its energy efficiency and performance!
With so many siding colors and styles to choose from, selecting the right option can feel daunting. Read on as A1 Siding & Roofing shares some of the most popular profiles that you can mix and match for your new exterior:
Popular Horizontal Siding Profiles
- Dutch Lap – This is one of the most recognizable types of siding, featuring a groove cut out of the top of each horizontal board. This provides more visual contrast across the surface as each panel casts some shadow on the grooved panel beneath it.
- Traditional Lap – This siding profile is simpler in design, featuring siding boards that are partially layered on top of the other. This creates a water barrier, and because of its affordability, many homeowners find this siding profile a practical option.
- Beaded – This is essentially a more updated version of the traditional lap siding. It features a “bead” at the bottom of the board to provide a more textured surface than its traditional lap counterpart.
Popular Vertical Siding Profiles
If you think that horizontal siding is too plain for your exterior design, you can always consider adding vertical profiles to mix and match. Many siding products are also available in a vertical profile, even though this design is not as common. To find out which vertical profiles can fit with your new exterior design, make sure to consult with your trusted siding installation contractor!
Vertical panels are becoming increasingly popular because they add visual interest to the home. The vertical board and batten profile is also a good choice, as it consists of boards that are placed with battens covering their cracks. This creates an effective waterproof surface and is available in different materials such as vinyl and fiber cement.
