Home owners want choices, not limitations when it comes to the exterior of their homes. At abc Seamless of Billings and TruCedar we understand how important it is for home owners to keep their home’s exterior looking vibrant and fresh, while keeping maintenance to a minimum. They want extensive style, design and color combinations. They want options that will define the characteristics of their homes and they know that curb appeal counts. They want to do more than just cover their exteriors; they want to create a look that stands out. They want their homes to have character and make a unique impression in their neighborhoods.
Do you want a dark color for the body of your home, or would you prefer a light or mid-tone color?
With modern steel sidings you have a variety of color and finish options. Choose siding colors from solid and high definition colors. For some home owners deciding on what color is an easy, quick decision. For others, they want a little inspiration.
Pinterest is a great place to get started. You can search, “ranch style homes,” or for a wider search start with exterior homes.
Start with the color of your roof. Stone coated metal roof shingles along with asphalt shingles will have slight color undertones. Some undertones may be black, gray, red, tan, green, blue, or gray and you will want to make sure they don’t clash with your color selection for the body of your home. Standing Seam metal roofs are solid roofing colors so you don’t have to worry as much about clashing. If you have a black roof you can choose siding colors without the worry of clashing.
Once you have decided on your shade you will want to consider what impact light has on your exterior colors and curb appeal. Sunlight will turn your base color lighter or “bluing” as it’s called and with an abundance of light it's better if you choose sidingg colors that are a warmer or darker color. If you like the abc siding color “Sandtone” and have an abundance of light you may want to consider the “Canyon, Canyon HD, or “T-tone.” The TruCedar siding colors are darker for the most part and aren’t as much of a “blueing” issue
As you decide on the actual color for the body of your home both the abc Seamless design tool and the TruCedar visualizer are of great help, and you can try on several combinations or variables.
A Pinterest search of color schemes in the boards option are inspiring also.
Also, you will want to consider any accents you may have like brick, cultured stone or natural wood. Sometimes it is nice to match the undertones in your brick or stone with the color of your trim.
Try to tie in or blend your wide range color choices for the body of your home to the undertones in your brick.
They say that less is more when choosing trim and accent colors. You will want to accentuate your home's architectural styles and detail of your exterior to maximize your curb appeal, however too much contrast can have the opposite effect and the details no longer stand out. When you choose siding colors anything more than 2-3 colors can be too much.
