Hi there. We are renovating the exterior of our home and have decided to go with Gentek to replace the existing siding. We are drawn to gray tones and would appreciate your advice as to whether either of these colours would work with the existing brick (and whether there are other colours you think we should consider). Iron ore (would this be too dark?) Windswept smoke (worried this has green undertones in it). We will also be removing the shutters and putting a trim/border around the white windows. Would you recommend using a coloured trim (if so, what shade) or white? Lastly, any recommendations you may have regarding the colour for the garage and front doors would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
I like the idea of the Iron Ore. Dark rich colours are very modern looking and look classic for years to come. If you feel this is too dark, I would suggest you go with Storm in a vertical siding and trim it out with Sable. I would get aluminum shutters in Sable and change the colour of the garage door to Sable as well. The Sable door will allow the door to blend into the home and not be a focal point. Your eye would be drawn to the other portions of the home. As for your front door, I would suggest you go Black or Iron Ore to create a bold door which your eye will be drawn to.
