Remodeling your home can be a long and tedious process, especially when it comes to choosing the color of your siding. Rather than just picking your favorite color, there a few things you should keep in mind.
The first thing you should consider when choosing new siding is your roof color. You want to choose a siding color that will compliment your roof, rather than making it look too opposite OR too similar. If you plan on replacing your roof soon, choose a siding color that will compliment your future roof.
You might have the perfect siding color picked out in your head, but you should really take a walk around your neighborhood first. Picking a color that’s too different from every other house on the block could make your house look out of place. However, you also don’t want to blend in too well with your neighbors. Just be sure that you do take the block’s style and color choices into consideration.
Some people will fall in love with a siding color in the store, have it installed on their home, and then hate it. A color can look completely different under the sun, especially during different times of the day. Before settling on a specific color, see what a sample would look like at sunrise, mid-day, sunset, and nighttime.
Since properly installed and maintained siding can last you around 20 years, choosing the right color is key. When you need your siding repaired or replaced, contact the expert installers at Preferred Exterior. To learn more, or to schedule a free estimate, give us a call at (516) 354-7252.
