We have old 8″ white aluminum siding and want to replace. Considering siding that is wide as possible to minimize number of lines. What would you recommend. Also, may consider scallop at peaks at front of house and then traditional siding below. Looking for a soft colour that would compliment brick, and have trim in white. Also, at the rear I have 4 windows that protrude with capping, and want to add insulation there anyway; could that bring the siding out enough so windows are more flush with siding?
In your case, I would suggest you go with a colour like Pebble to compliment the brick and give you a more modern look. A vertical board and batten profile would minimize the lines and give you an entirely different look. As for the windows in the back, it would really depend on the amount that the siding would have to come out and the thickness of the insulation board that you chose. You would need to talk to your installer about that and have him measure the area to be sure.
