Sharpening up your lines

These days people are installing more that one type of siding onto their home. This could be for a number of reasons such as cost or they just don’t want to have too much of a good thing. One way to get around this with the stone is with a ledge or trim or cap or whatever you want to call it. It is a pretty common stone to use and is usually hidden under the name of ‘Window Sill’. Most commonly 18-20 inches long and sticks out from the wall almost twice the depth of the actual stone. They are usually made to allow for water to run off of them. There are a a multitude of different sidings that you can use depending on your taste, although you really just have to decide Vertical or Horizontal.

Although there are basic trims that you can get to separate the 2 types of siding the best way is with this trim shown in this photo. This for anyone that is wondering was done in our Ready Stack Rustic Suede. In my opinion one of the best looking stones available, although some of that has to do with how it matches the rest of the theme on the home.
