Replacing damaged siding is essential because it guarantees the safety of your home. Rotting, warping and cracks are common indications that repairs are not enough to bring back your siding to its former glory. It’s the same if it requires frequent repairs and maintenance. Investing in high-quality siding materials will boost your property’s appeal, value and protection against the elements.
Here are tips to help you choose the right siding color for your home.
Are You Replacing All of Your Siding?
If you are building a new home or replacing your entire siding, you have an opportunity to create a new color scheme. You can choose siding styles, attractive textures and hues to increase your property’s curb appeal. However, you’ll need to decide the style of your siding first. For instance, a farmhouse home would look great with lap siding in creamy white or light shades of beige. A well-designed siding can also make your home more appealing and marketable.
Consider Homes in Your Neighborhood
When choosing a siding color, you must also consider how other homes in your neighborhood look. Check houses that look similar to yours, focusing on the siding’s style and color scheme. You also want to keep your location in mind when choosing a siding color. If you live in an homeowners association (HOA) community, there might be rules about siding styles and colors you can use.
What’s the Size of Your Home?
Another thing to consider is the size of your home. If you have a large home, steer clear of dark hues that can make your property look dreary or overwhelming. Sometimes, very light colors can keep a small house from standing out from its surroundings. Dark hues can accentuate areas you want to stand out while lighter colors can do the opposite.
