What You Need to Know About the American Craftsman Style

Feb 21, 2020

The Craftsman style has been one of the most popular home designs for decades. This homestyle, influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement, is known for its uniqueness and simplicity. 

Read on to discover more about this style from a trusted siding and bathtub replacement contractor

Front Porch and Tapered Columns

Craftsman bungalow homes typically have porches, which are either full or partial width. They are also either sheltered below the main roof or under a separate extended roof. Another popular feature of this home style is tapered columns. These columns support the porch roof and are usually short and rest upon large stone or brick piers that extend down to the ground. Double columns are also a known variation. 

Low-Pitched, Gabled Roofs

These roofs usually feature wide, unenclosed eave overhang with decorative supports. Roofs with low pitch require regular maintenance so they stay debris-free. Only hire an experienced contractor to care for your roof. Always do your research before hiring any company to do work on your home. You can go online and search “roofer near me” to learn more about roofing contractors around your area. 

Ideal Siding for This Style

Most Craftsman homes have clapboard or shake siding. In houses with clapboard siding, gables or accent walls that have board and batten or shakes. These homes often use medium to dark hues or neutral color palettes in earth tones. 

The Craftsman style is known for using natural building materials, such as wood, brick, and stone. However, natural wood can be unstable over time, making vinyl a great alternative. Vinyl siding is available in a wide range of colors, which are tested to resist fading. 

At Master’s Home Solutions, we install Prodigy insulated vinyl siding, which features an attractive woodgrain-style textured look. You can count on us for siding that will add beauty and character to your home’s exterior. Our team also specializes in tub to shower conversion, roof replacement, and door installation.
