I have a new roof – BP Rustic Cedar shingles. And I just replaced my eavestroughs, soffit, gutters with Gentek commercial brown. I am replacing my windows in the fall and was thinking of sticking with the same commercial brown. Is that wise or should I choose a different color? I don’t have any window trim. If I would want to add some, what color should it be? And what color should my new front door and garage door be? Should they be the same color? I was told to stick with a 3 color scheme at most. Is that true? As an FYI, the stone at the front of the house is a light beige (with a tinge of pink) and the 3 sides of the house is a light brown brick.
For your windows I would not go with Commercial Brown, I would go with something a bit lighter like Gentek’s Pebble. If you are going to add some trim to the windows, I would also trim them in Pebble to give a clean look. As for your garage door and front door, here is my opinion. I always like to make garage doors blend in so they do not become a focal point, so I would go with Pebble and I like my front door to stand out and be a focal point, so I would go with Commercial Brown. As for 3 colours max on a home, I do agree with this rule, anything more can be distracting on the home.
