Creating Accents with Vinyl Siding Shakes

Vinyl siding has come a long way since its early days. Today, you'll find numerous color and style choices for your DIY siding project. If you have a colonial or traditional home, you may choose a beaded or Dutch lap siding to showcase your architectural style, although vinyl board and batten siding can help create a rugged, rustic appearance. However, you may want to establish accents on your home to break up the color and style of the rest of your exterior siding. Good accents not only catch people's eyes, but the contrasts can make the rest of your siding stand out as well.

Vinyl Siding Shakes as Accents

Vinyl siding shakes duplicate the beauty of natural cedar shakes and may be the perfect accent for your home. Take a walk around your home before starting your DIY siding project and visualize where accents might highlight your home's styling and colors. Here are some popular locations for exterior home accents:

  • Dormer gables
  • End gables
  • Front elevation offsets
  • Garage gables
  • Box or bay windows

Consider using vinyl siding shakes in a color that matches the rest of your vinyl siding. Rely on the style difference to create the accent. Or, choose a color that complements or contrasts with your other siding for a dramatic accent. When estimating materials for your DIY siding project, remember vinyl siding shakes are often packaged in different lengths and widths than other vinyl sidings. So, allow for a little more waste than usual.

Get creative when using vinyl siding shakes as accents, and make your home the pride of the neighborhood when you complete your DIY siding project.
