Choosing a siding color can be an intimidating task, even with the help of an expert roofing contractor. One bad decision and your home’s design can clash with the rest of the neighborhood’s. It might even bring down your home’s resale value in the long run. What should you do when it comes to choosing the right siding color for your home?

In this post, Timberline Roofing and Contracting discusses tips on choosing the right siding color.

Tour Your Neighborhood

To get an idea, you should take some time to tour your neighborhood. You can observe your neighbors’ homes and take notes on the color schemes. This will help you make a choice that will stand out for all the right reasons.

Consider Your Home Style

Your home’s style is another deciding factor in choosing your siding color. Certain colors may only fit certain styles. For instance, dark grays, blues and greens may only work in modern homes. Gray-blue shades work for Cape Cod style homes while white and soft pastel colors look great on Colonial homes and A-frame cottages. Neutral colors, on the other hand, may work for the suburbs where homes tend to have contemporary construction. Our commercial roofing repair experts can help you with color coordination as well.

Consider Your Roof Color

When you’re choosing a siding color, take a moment to look at your roof’s color as well. The roof and the siding should complement one another to make your home more appealing. For example, if your roof has a dark color, then you may want to consider a light siding color to balance it out. Neutral colored roofs, meanwhile, may allow you more freedom in choosing your siding color.
