Know the Basics
Exteria thrives on opportunities to create better, more breathtaking exteriors for our clients – exteriors that are a reflection of their owners. To help us design a home that captures your vision and exceeds your expectations, reference these basic design terms and elements.
Lines & Shapes
Lines are the continuous movement of a point along a surface. The edges of shapes also create lines. So, what does this mean? Many features can create lines on your house – horizontally, vertically, diagonally – including your roof, your doors, your windows and your siding. It’s important to think about how these elements interact with the overall shape of your home.
Every siding texture feels different. For your home’s exterior, texture can help add depth and visual interest to your home.
Balance and symmetry play an integral role in achieving a well-designed exterior. To achieve balance, you must arrange elements in such a way that no single feature overpowers other features.
Space is an area that’s provided for a specific purpose. When you gaze at your exterior ‘space’, like the side of your home, notice how it connects with the lines of your house, like rooflines and windowsills. Does it appear crowded? Does it look a bit blank?
Color not only affects the way you think, feel and act, but also can also add value and personality to your home. That’s why it’s important to find color combinations that are beautifully balanced. Learn more and explore color options here.
Some design trends come and go, while others are simply timeless. These timeless designs seamlessly blend colors, focal points, frames, exterior surfaces and more – creating long-lasting beauty and defining your home’s personality.
So, how does Exteria begin designing products that stand the test of time? We focus on more than just looks.
Exteria’s products are sculpted using real cedar shingles, bricks and stones to create a deeper, more realistic appearance for all of our composite panels. How do we do it? Our injection molding process allows us to capture nature’s imperfect beauty, while a variation of textures and patterns create a stunning, handcrafted look.
Exteria’s panels exceed industry standards in all water, wind and impact testing. Panel colorant is injection molded, providing long-lasting hues and protection against surface scratches. Plus, mineral-packed polypropylene delivers strong, solid panels that stand the test of time.
No paint, no stain, no worries. You’ll save time, since our products require little-to-no maintenance. You’ll gain freedom from rotting, paint fading and mold. You’ll save yourself the aggravation of insect damage, since our products are termite-resistant.
Exteria’s products install faster than natural products, keeping costs low and home values high. While easier to install, our products provide the timeless and distinguished look of cedar and masonry at a fraction of the cost.
