Vinyl siding can be the perfect addition to any residential property. Not only does vinyl siding protect your home from excessive heat and cold, high winds and moisture, but it also adds character and style.

However, the siding color can make or break the overall appearance of your house. Choosing a color for your home’s exterior may seem simple enough, but it isn’t. With all the choices available, many homeowners may struggle to narrow down their options.

Here is a guide to help you identify the right color without a hassle:

Property Size

Before you start checking out colors for your home’s vinyl siding, you must consider the size of your home. Generally, brighter colors look better on bigger houses, while darker colors suit smaller homes. You may use a bolder shade for specific areas that you want to highlight.

Cool Vs. Warm Shades

Vinyl siding colors are divided into two categories: cool and warm. Both shades affect viewers differently.

Warmer shades tend to have a dramatic impact, while cooler shades are soft and relaxing. Blue and green are cool colors and yellow, brown, red, and orange are warm colors. The easiest way to choose a siding color is to ensure it complements the style of your home.

Soft, cool shades look great on traditional homes. On the other hand, warm, bold colors are compatible with contemporary or modern houses.

The Neighborhood

Another significant factor to consider is the neighborhood you live in. Each neighborhood has its own unique vibe. While you may want your home to stand out, it’s important to pick a color scheme that goes with other houses in the area.

Take a drive around your area and observe the siding on neighboring homes. This will give you a good idea for your home.

Other Exterior Parts

When choosing a siding color, take into account other exterior components. This includes roof, windows, garage doors, front door, and so on. The siding color should harmonize with them.

Color Samples

Once you shortlist some colors for your siding, check out the color samples on the Garden State Brickface and Siding website. Make sure you see how the sample looks in broad daylight and at night. Place it against your house for at least a week before you decide to order it.
