New siding is a great addition to any home as unlike exterior wall paint, it’s more permanent and doubles as an extra weather barrier and insulating component for your home. With so many options on the market, choosing the right siding color can be overwhelming.
Maris Home Improvements, your siding repair specialist, shares tips on how to pick the right siding color for your home.
Material and Color Options
Not all siding materials have the same color palette. Natural materials such as lumber and cedar are restricted to lighter shades and wood stains. In contrast, vinyl and fiber cement siding can come in almost any color and usually have different textures, as well.
Think of the Neighborhood You’re In
While it’s important for your new siding to have a unique color, its color scheme must still compliment the general tone and atmosphere in your neighborhood.
This doesn’t mean you should mimic the same siding color your neighbors have. Choosing a darker or lighter shade from the same color palette will let your home stand out without looking out of place. As your local siding and fencing contractor, we’ll help you pick the best color scheme that matches but stands out from the rest of your neighborhood.
Consider Your Home’s Architectural Style
Finally, use your home’s architectural style as a guide on what color palette and scheme to pick for your new siding. Classic homes with the colonial architectural style are often painted a single color, such as white or muted gray. The same can be said for more modern properties, whereas cottage and country homes give you more freedom and often come in several color schemes that compliment one another.
