Picking the right color for your siding will boost the curb appeal of your home, while the wrong color can do the opposite. While choosing the color and style of your siding can be a bit intimidating, it can also be a fun experience with the proper guidance.
To make sure that you select the best color for your siding, you should consult a reputable siding contractor. Read these helpful tips from Calgary siding experts S.I.S. Exterior Renovations to achieve the ideal look of your home.
Take Inspiration From Your Neighborhood
When choosing your siding color, drive around your neighborhood and take a look at some of the houses. Take note of the siding colors you see and your likes and dislikes. Ideally, you want to choose a siding color that will help your home stand out but not stick out.
Be sure to check out houses that share a similar architectural style to yours. For example, colonial-inspired homes usually feature light colors, while traditional homes look elegant in grays and grey toned-reds.
Consider a Complementary Color Palette
A complementary color palette can also be a great choice for your siding. To save you the time from having to choose one color from hundreds of options, you might want to consider choosing two: one main color that is bold and bright as the focal point and one hue that has a shade or two lighter or darker than the first.
Complementary colors can add a dramatic effect to your house and make it seem brighter and energetic. You can also choose to upgrade the colors of your window trim, doors and railings at the same time to complete the look of your exterior siding.
Check Samples at Different Times of Day
Get a few samples of siding you like and hold them up to the side of your home at different times during the day and in different weather. Siding colors may look different at dusk than high noon, and on a cloudy day vs. a sunny one. Make sure to choose an option that you think looks good in all different conditions.
