3 Simple Ways to Mix Exterior Textures Effectively

You can create a lovely and consistent look for your home exterior by choosing just the one texture for your siding. But if you’re looking for a bolder and more unique aesthetic, you’re absolutely free to mix different siding textures. You just need to make sure they all work together. Let the premier siding installation and roof maintenance company, Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. help you get started with these handy tips:

3 Simple Ways to Mix Exterior Textures Effectively
  1. Decide on the number of exterior textures. Two is a safe enough number, but you can pick up to three if you want further customization. When mixing exterior textures, choose one that has a rugged surface and another one that’s smooth. If you do decide to take them up to three, go for one more texture that you can use for the trim.
  1. Use a different color for each texture. This way, you can emphasize the unique look of each siding texture. But you still need to make careful choices about the color. You won’t want them to clash too much, so the rule of thumb is to pick a darker hue for one texture, another color of the same palette (just lighter) for the other, and a completely different color for the trim. If you have difficulty choosing, your trusted residential roofing and siding expert, Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. will be more than happy to help you decide.
  1. Choose where each texture goes. You’re mixing different siding textures, yes, but this doesn’t mean they should be all over the place. Here are a few examples you should consider:
  • Pick a rough texture for the base of your home (up to the bottom of the windowsill), and a smoother texture for the rest. Choose yet another texture for the surface area with the dormers.
  • Go for a rough siding texture for the first level of your home, then opt for a smoother one for the upper levels.
  • Choose horizontal siding for the first story of your home, then pick a vertical one for the second story.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
