What Style is Your Home?

I frequently get asked what type of house a home owner’s is – and what decorative stucco elements fit best on it. Until now, I haven’t been enough of a history-building-styles buff to really have an answer. I came across this the other day, and found it illuminating: style home

There are so many different styles that it would help to have a general idea so that you can search for it, but the features listing of the home is very handy for identifying what style your home was built as. This can help you in maintaining the architectural features that suit your home when doing a renovation with EIFS – using the appropriate colors, and adding the appropriate style (and quantity!) of exterior trim.

In the Queen Anne for example, we know that the home is asymmetrical and therefore does not necessarily need to match identically on both sides of the house (in fact, this may look “off”!). We know that since the timber/shingle siding look is common, we may opt to add “reveals” (grooves in the insulation) horizontally along the wall, to match this effect.

Were you able to find your style of home on the website? What is it?
