Today’s siding manufacturers offer products in virtually any color imaginable, giving homeowners the flexibility to choose the siding color that looks best for their home. This wide range of choices can also make it hard for some people to choose the right color. If you’re among the latter, no problem – local siding and roofing company Bradford Xteriors shares tips on how to choose the right siding color for your home.
1. Check with your neighbors – Many communities tend to pick a certain range of colors, even if it’s not explicitly dictated like in areas that are run by an homeowners’ association (HOA). The next time you walk your dog or take a leisurely drive, pay attention to the houses that you pass, particularly the siding colors. When choosing the color for your own, you won’t be imitating their colors; you’re choosing which colors won’t make your house stand out like a sore thumb.
2. Research your home’s architectural style – If your home design is based on a particular architectural style, using the color palette associated with it can help make your color selection easier. It can also add some authenticity to your home. A local siding installation contractor may also provide insight on local home styles and color palettes.
3. Take your home’s permanent components into account – If your home has permanent components like brick and stone, they can help you choose siding colors. While they are considered neutral, some siding colors work better with brick and stone than others.
4. Don’t forget your roof color – Unless you are planning on replacing your roof in the same project, your new siding should be in harmony with the roof. Siding and roofing are the two biggest parts of your home’s exterior, so it only makes sense to make sure that they look well together. There are various types of software that can “install” siding to a virtual model of your home and help you visualize which siding colors and styles look best.
