Choosing the roofing and siding for your home is exciting. It’s a chance to define the look of your home for the long term. But with that in mind, there’s more at stake than when you are painting an interior room.
This is a color and style combination that you will be forced to live with for years to come. It’s important to keep the whole look of your home in mind as you make roofing and siding decisions.
Below are some tips to consider as you proceed with your project.
Find the Right Roofing and Siding Combination for Your Home
Coordinate the Colors
The roofing and siding should complement each other for the right overall look. A dark-gray or black roof goes well with a gray or blue home. Brown or cream-colored shingles go better with a brown or tan home. A green home may have more flexibility on the color of the roof. Make sure to consider the overall look as you are making these color choices. Here are some more tips from James Hardie on how to select the right siding.
Consider the Age of Your Roof
If your roof is in good shape and you like it, make sure to choose siding that matches. If you’ll be replacing your roof soon, then go with a siding and trim that you love, and you can match your roof at a later date.
The Number of Colors on Your Home
The number of colors on your home may be unique to the style of your home, and how many details there are to highlight. Typically there is the body, trim, and accent. You don’t have to force this, however. Go with a color combination and a style that fits naturally.
