• How Siding Color Can Transform Your House

    Choosing a siding color for your home is not an easy decision. Today, siding manufacturers cater to a population of homeowners who want unique styling, texture and, above all, color choices. Siding can be found in everything from the purest white to the darkest black to the brightest reds to the deepest greens. Siding can also be found in styles ranging from everything from cedar wood to a log home.

    Choosing the color and style that works best for your home is a matter of personal choice; the age and style of the home should also be considered. Historically Accurate If you are putting siding on an old home, it will look best with a color that is reminiscent of that era. Researching colors that were found on homes during the year your house was built will give you a starting point on which to build.

    Although many old homes had brick or shingle siding, today's vinyl siding can rival the look of authentic wood or cedar shake siding without the headaches and inconvenience involved in their upkeep. Some siding manufacturers even specialize in matching colors for different time periods and home styles. If in doubt, consult a siding manufacturer by phone or seek out the advice of a professional installer.

    Neutral Siding If color does not matter much and you want a classic, neutral color for your home, install tan or beige siding. These two colors can coordinate with all different shades of shutters, shingles and other exterior home elements. Neutral siding colors also offer homeowners the flexibility of changing the other elements to create a completely new look. Bold or unusual siding color will not offer the same flexibility because it’s harder to find other colors that coordinate. Neutral colors are a good, safe bet for a home that will not look out of date in decades to come. Bold and Sassy If your personality is larger than life and you want your home's exterior to reflect that, there are many bold, modern siding colors that will make your house stand out from the crowd. Colors with names like, "Russet Red" and "Glacier Blue" are sure to be unique in a neighborhood where homes tend to look the same.

    Just remember that siding lasts for a long time and choosing a modern and bold color for your house today may not have quite the same look ten years from now. Choose siding that you love. Pick a color that will reflect the feel of your home, the style you adore and the personality inside. Siding color choices are vast and although there are many similarities among different brands, there are always subtle differences in textures and shades. Take the time to thoroughly research colors as well as manufacturer warranties and quality: A high quality brand of siding should hold up for approximately 2o years without fading, warping or cracking.
