With all the options available for siding today, it can be difficult to choose which looks best for your home. However, it’s also an opportunity to release your creative side. With the right style and color of siding, you’ll have a more eye-catching home.
Check out this quick guide to popular siding profiles.
Traditional Lap – The most common profile, traditional lap siding is easy to install and features a simple yet efficient design. This classic siding profile is characterized by boards that are slightly layered on top of each other.
Dutch Lap – Along with your roof replacement project, consider installing a dutch lap siding in your home. It is similar to traditional lap siding but it has a groove cut out of the top of each horizontal board.
Beaded – A common vinyl siding design, the beaded profile features a bead at the bottom of every horizontal board, creating a more textured surface.
Panel – Panel siding is the vertical version of traditional lap siding. It looks flat, with panels placed on top of each other.
Board and Batten – In this profile, vertical boards are placed with battens covering their gaps to create a waterproof surface. The embossed batten casts a distinct shadow on the boards, creating a unique texture within the surface.
Aside from vertical and horizontal siding profiles, you can also find various shakes patterns on the market. They can be used as accents across your exterior cladding. Shake siding started as a popular pattern for wood siding but now, it’s also made in different materials. Popular variations of shake siding include square, round, mitered corner, octagonal and hexagonal and staggered shakes.
