Your choice of siding can define your home’s exterior and improve curb appeal. And if you’re keen on having your home stand out, you might want to consider using more than one siding material. In this article, Woodbridge Home Exteriors — a trusted provider of siding and replacement windows — shares some quick tips on how you can successfully combine two siding materials.

Profiles

If you want to emphasize the contrast between the two siding materials, you should select two very different profiles for your home. For example, you can use horizontal planks on the first level of your home and scallops on the second.

Colors

When using two siding materials, make sure that their colors are quite distinct from each other. Using just one hue or closely similar shades won’t allow you to highlight the difference between the two siding materials. It would be pointless to have a two-siding design when both materials cannot be distinguished from each other.

That said, you might want to go with one dark and one light color to make the contrast more pronounced. Of course, when choosing these two colors, don’t forget to consider how they will look next to the rest of your home exterior. Much like with windows, ensure that all colors go well together.

Textures

Using two dissimilar colors may not always be enough to create the visual impact that you desire. In that case, you have to play with different textures to make your home’s exterior more interesting. For example, choose a smooth finish on one siding system and a rugged look on the other.
