A Homeowners’ Guide to Choosing the Perfect Siding Color

Choosing a new color for your replacement siding will not only increase your home’s value, but also increase your home’s charm, beauty and resale value. However, finding the best color that matches the rest of your home exteriors can be overwhelming given the many color schemes and styles available.  

The ideal siding color should complement your home’s best features and make your property stand out. Today, we share a guide to help you choose the perfect color for your siding. 

Look Around Your Neighborhood

When deciding on a siding color, it’s a good idea to look at nearby houses, and check the color palettes of your neighbors. Be sure to pay attention to homes that are styled similarly to yours. While it’s important to highlight your personality in your siding color scheme, your home still needs to look attractive and complement the rest of the neighborhood. Otherwise, you risk sticking out like a sore thumb, which may negatively impact your resale value. 

Consider Your Home’s Architecture 

The architectural style of your home can provide visual cues to help you choose the right siding color. After all, most architectural styles were originally built with a color palette in mind. Colonial homes, for instance, are usually painted a classic color, such as white. Although you can use these visual cues as a guide, you don’t need to completely follow them. As such, you can incorporate unusual accents to give a modern twist to a traditional style. 

Take Note of Your Roof

Your siding has a variable lifespan, but that’s not true for your roof. Since residential roofing systems usually last from 20 to 30 years, the color of your roof is a significant consideration when choosing siding colors. For example, if you have dark-colored roofing shingles, you may try a lighter siding color scheme to complement it. On the other hand, if you have a more neutral and muted roof color, you have plenty of color options for your exterior. 

Test Your Favorite Colors

If you already have a color in mind, don’t forget to test it at various times of the day. It’s worth noting that a certain siding color may look bright on sunny days, but different on cloudy afternoons. For this reason, it’s a good idea to apply swatches of your prospective siding colors on different sides of your home, and take a good look at them in the morning, afternoon and evening. Additionally, you should also consider painting the swatches close to items on your home whose colors won’t change, such as brick foundations.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
