Vinyl siding is the most popular siding choice among homeowners and these days, it comes in a wide variety of colors. At P.J. Fitzpatrick, we offer many different vinyl siding colors that can give your home the look you want while keeping your budget on track. Best of all, our vinyl siding is low maintenance and built to last. This means you can enjoy your installation for years to come.

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing vinyl siding colors:

Consider your house style.

Before you choose your siding color, consider what style house you have. Sometimes certain home styles look better in certain colors. For example, craftsman homes look great in earthy colors like olive, dark red, or brown. Tuscan and Mediterranean homes look great in warmer vinyl siding colors like burnt orange, maple, or terra cotta. And Victorian and French homes can be fitted with virtually any color. This means you can go bold with blues, greens, reds, or another favorite color.

Determine where your siding will be.

Take a look at your home and determine where the siding is. Is it around the entire home? Does your siding only cover the sides? Is it just on the second floor? When you take location into consideration, it can help you determine the right vinyl siding colors. For example, if your vinyl siding is more of an accent, choose a color that complements the stonework, cedar shakes, or other siding material on your home. If vinyl siding covers the entire home, choose a color that gives it character.

Use light and dark colors accordingly.

On average, large homes tend to look better in light vinyl siding colors while small homes tend to look better in dark vinyl siding colors. If a large home is a dark color, it could appear ominous, and if a small home is a light color, it could get lost in the landscape. In addition, light colors can be used to understate features while dark colors can be used to emphasize them, so choose accordingly to achieve the look you want.

Don’t forget about your roof.

The color of your home can help give it personality. But one thing you shouldn’t forget about is your roof color. If you’re replacing your vinyl siding but not your roof, you’ll need to choose a vinyl siding color that complements your roof color. If you’re building your home new or you’re replacing both your siding and your roof, make sure you consider how each color will look against the other. Siding may cover most of your home’s surface, but your roof is a large piece of the aesthetic puzzle. It can change the entire look.
