Tips for Choosing the Siding Color for Your Home

Jan 26, 2017

The color of your home says a lot about you. Are you ready to make a change? If new siding is in your future, do you have a color in mind, or are you struggling to find the right one?

Johnson County Siding & Window Company serves the Kansas City region, with a wide variety of choices for vinyl and fiber cement siding. We can help you look at your options and determine the right color combinations for your home’s style and your personal preferences.

To get you started, here are some tips for choosing the siding color for your home.

  • Accent your home’s architectural style. Certain colors and palettes work well with a particular style of home—although you should feel free to explore beyond those boundaries.
  • Complement your surroundings: Is your home situated in a wooded area? Earthy tones or shades of green would be a “natural” choice. Walk to your curb and look at your home. What colors wrap around it? Think about blending or complementing those natural hues.
  • Consider the resale appeal. If you might be selling your home in the near future, play it safe with a neutral shade. James Hardie’s fiber cement siding is an investment that will pay you back in resale value because of the lasting quality—and you have many neutral tones to choose from.
  • Create balance. Select colors for your home and trim that complement one another, as well as your roof. The James Hardie Color Tool lets you experiment with different color combinations.

These are basic guidelines for choosing the exterior color. Talk to us at Johnson County Siding & Window Company to learn more about your many options.

"We used Johnson County Siding and Window in our previous home about 20 years ago, and were very pleased with their work. So, when we needed new windows in our current home, we knew we wanted to use them again. And we were not disappointed! They were professional and completed the job in the time expected.”
