House Siding Color Selection Tips

Without question, the most dramatic way you can upgrade the appearance of your home’s exterior is by changing your house siding colors.  Next to picking material(s) to use, the next biggest decision to make is the color combination.  While personal preference definitely comes into play when making the final selection, it’s important to factor in what your neighbors have as well. After all, you don’t want to have the house that sticks out like a sore thumb.  Additionally, the architectural style of your home also impacts what choices are sensible.  Here’s what you need to know about the most popular siding color choices on the market.

Red Siding Colors:

While a red siding house can seem like a bold color choice, there are plenty of times when it works.  Historic and country homes showcase the color beautifully, especially when it has gray undertones.  (Think burnt red instead of fire engine.)red house

Check out some of the most popular siding color combinations we’re seeing.

White House Siding Colors

White is timeless and will always be a viable option.  However, don’t be afraid to add punches or color when it comes to accessories such as trim, garage doors and shutters.  You can always sass up white vinyl siding with different textures which create interest.

Green House Siding:

In design, the color green is synonymous with Mother Nature.  Muted green siding colors for houses work well on properties with lots of tree coverage.  Green complements and array of tones, including yellow and brown.Plymouth, MN LeafGuard

Blue Siding Colors:

It’s a fact that the most popular favorite color for the people of the world is blue.  (Believe it or not, yellow is the least.) In design, dark blue is believed to bring a calming energy to a home and all those that enter.  If you’re looking for a less bold statement, gravitate to blueish gray siding colors for houses which looks great on almost any type of home.  Whatever you do, shy away from powder blue which will appear dated.

I was extremely pleased with the quality of work done by Lindus. They installed six large picture windows, replaced all my old siding with new LP® Smartside®, replaced the soffit and fascia, and installed their LeafGuard® Gutters. I highly recommend checking them out.  Their responsiveness, ability to make suggestions that met my needs, and professionalism were top notch. Pricewise, they were in the ballpark with competitors, maybe slightly more, but they're worth it."

"Even with unexpected shipping delays with materials, Lindus Construction plowed through installing new windows, siding, gutters, soffits, facia AND fixed our patio covering as soon as possible, working outside in JANUARY during low, freezing temps. We had extreme drainage issues that they engineered to fix and they went the extra mile in so many ways. Professional, reliable and timely. They had the best variety of colors/materials over other companies we looked into. We're happy, glad we chose them, worth every penny."

My wife and I concluded that we needed gutters, but our house is 40+ years old and it would be appropriate to replace our facia and soffits. Why not siding too? I contacted Lindus Construction and Matt came to our house and walked us through the process.  Thanks to the crews and we would recommend using Lindus Construction."

"Lindus Construction teams did first class work on my brother's roof, upper windows & steel siding. They are great in their communications. Kelsey coordinated scheduling & our needs so we could stay ahead of crew needs.  Tony, George and their teams have high standards. Well done! I highly recommend Lindus!"
