The right siding color can instantly transform your home’s exterior, which is why you should carefully plan your color choices with your trusted siding and roofing company. Billings Roofing & Solar lists some of the things you should consider when choosing your siding color.
- Existing Roofing Color – Unless you’re having your roof replaced at the same time, you’ll have to ensure that the siding complements your existing roof. There are several ways you can mix and match siding color with your existing roof, including a number of free online tools for easy visualization. Of course, this wouldn’t be a factor if your home is fitted with a flat roof.
Landscaping – Another exterior element you should consider is your landscaping. You’ll want your home to pop out, not disappear into the surroundings. Also, you should factor in how your home will look during different seasons. While warm colors look great against a green background, it may not be the case when fall comes around.
Home Style – It pays to research your home’s architectural style, especially if you’re not the first owner. Certain styles have specific color palettes, and can add an authentic look to your home when installed by a capable siding contractor. A common example of a home style with a known color palette is Mediterranean architecture, which features terracotta roofs and stucco siding.
Neighborhood Colors – Certain communities have similar color palettes, either as required by the homeowner’s association, or simply because no one wants to stick out like a sore thumb. In either case, checking the neighborhood for the prevailing color palette can give you a starting point on which siding colors you should choose. A quick walk around a couple of blocks should be enough for you to determine what the neighborhood color palette is.
The Local Climate – Siding colors can look different depending on the time of the day, as well as whether the sky is clear or overcast. Before you commit to a siding color, try to obtain physical samples and check them against your exterior during different times of the day. Ideally, your siding color should look great regardless of outside conditions.
