Another major element of exterior design is siding. Siding can be made out of many materials such as wood, vinyl, aluminum, steel, and stucco. Each type of siding is available in many style and color options to match any exterior design. The different materials require different levels of maintenance and certain materials may not be as well suited for certain climates.
Mahogany has a straight grain that is virtually free of knots. The color varies from a light to a dark brown with red highlights. This type of wood holds up well to the outside elements and is often used on boats. Red Oak is another option for wooden doors and is a fine choice. The grain patterns on red oak vary and the wood will accept most stains. The grain will pick up the stain and creates a wonderful look for an entry door. The color can vary from light to golden combined with a darker grain.
Aluminum and steel are more likely to rust in areas with high moisture and wood siding is always subject to warping or termites. Wood siding also requires more maintenance because the wood may need to be sealed annually to help protect it against the weather. Exterior remodeling companies offer consultations to help their clients choose siding that works best with their home. Replacing the siding of a home can drastically change its outward appearance.
