If you’re on the market to replace your siding, it won’t take you long to realize that there are now more siding style and design choices available than ever before. And when it comes to picking the right siding for your home, you really want to get the look right, since siding is such a central factor in determining your home’s exterior aesthetics.
But of course, you probably already know all of that, or else you wouldn’t have clicked on this blog! In addition to choosing the right material, style, and color of siding, there’s another choice you need to make too – which orientation of siding panels will look the best and work the best for you? Not sure how to decide? Below are a few things to consider when comparing the pros and cons of horizontal and vertical when it comes to siding replacement.
While some types of siding are better suited for specifically horizontal or vertical orientation, in many cases siding can be run in either direction, depending upon your preference. Typically speaking, horizontal siding is often the default look for residences, while vertical siding is more commonly seen on commercial buildings. But perhaps you don’t care about what’s “typical”; you only care about which orientation will really be best for your structure! Let’s look at a few factors to keep in mind:
So now, which do you prefer – horizontal or vertical siding? And what about all the great material, design, and color options? Whichever orientation or type of siding you decide to go with, finding the perfect siding solution is really about more than the materials you choose. If you really want a siding solution that looks great and is made-to-last, then it’s critical to make sure your siding is installed correctly in the first place. And nobody does siding installation & replacement better than the pros at Skywalker!
