Replacing your siding is a great way to boost the beauty, energy efficiency and comfort of your home. Vinyl siding, in particular, can be fitted with a wide range of decorative accessories that can further improve your home’s curb appeal.
In this post, V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding, Inc. discusses the three most popular siding accessories and how to pick the right one for your home.
Whether you call it an accent or fascia, the trim of the siding adds some much-needed detail to your home’s exterior. The type of trim you should choose depends on the architectural style of your home.
For traditional properties, the so-called “gingerbread” trim is a good option as it matches gables and cornices perfectly. It’s a very intricate kind of trim and, as its name suggests, looks very similar to the whimsical decor of gingerbread houses. As your local siding contractor, we recommend this option if you want to turn the window and roof areas into the main focal points of your home.
These are a type of accent that finishes off the corners of the house. The standard corner post is quite plan, but it can also come in beaded or fluted variants. Beaded corner posts are great for modern homes. The distinct vertical lines contrast well with the horizontal panels, making the main siding area more prominent and fleshed out.
Moldings are decorative finishes that are used to “border” or accent the door and window mantels. They’re actually a mandatory feature for most homes where the windows and doors often look very distinct from the siding. The molding essentially creates a border around the window, door or even the gutters so that they look flush with the siding.
