What's your home's architectural style?

Home Exterior Styles

When you’re choosing doors, windows, siding, stone, or roofing for your home, it’s important to select styles, designs, and colors that complement the architectural style of your house. Some home exterior styles are easy to identify, while others can be a little more challenging. Identifying your home’s style is the first step toward finding exterior products that amplify the unique characteristics of your home’s architecture.

To help you determine your home’s style, we’ve compiled a collection of popular architectural styles found across the United States. Our Marketing Creative Team has paired each of these unique exterior house styles with several of ProVia’s most popular door, window, and glass options that will best complement your home.
