Designing your home exterior requires careful thought and planning. Mistakes aren’t easy to fix and oftentimes they can be costly to amend.
Sentry Exteriors, one of the top roofing contractors in the industry, spills some design secrets to help you maximize curb appeal.
A facade that shows balance and symmetry is typically more pleasant to look at because it appears properly designed. There are various ways in which you can achieve a proportional exterior and sometimes it’s not as obvious as you think it is. It’s best to consult with experts to ensure the right design for your exterior. And if you need additional insight—for instance, on the placement of your windows—Sentry Exteriors is ready to offer help.
You can create textures using the materials you choose for your siding and roofing. Make sure they’re varied enough but complementing each other. To help you decide on the materials you’ll use, it helps to consider first the style you want. Do you want a modern, minimalist design or a more traditional one?
While the bulk of your exterior is made up of your siding, your roofing can have a significant effect on curb appeal too. It can add a layer of texture to your facade, so it’s important to choose a material that will complement the overall look of your home. Focus on other minor details as well. Gutters and gutter guards, for instance, can add lines and a touch of color.
With so many colors to choose from, finding the perfect combination can be overwhelming. But a good approach would be picking two different shades of the same color, one lighter and one darker. You can use the lighter or darker hue for the body and the opposite for the trim. Then, select a contrasting accent color, which you can use for your door.
