Siding is very important because it gives beauty to the totality of your home especially the exterior. In today’s world, there are thousands off different colors and brands to choose from. When choosing what siding fits your home best, you should consider what other homes on your street and in your area look like. Darker colors will make your house look smaller and lighter colors will make your house look larger and if you have a two story home you might want to contemplate two different colors.
