Building a new home and trying to decide on the exterior colors
Hi there, I hope you are able to help us. We are building a new home and trying to decide on the exterior colors of our home. Our shed was built first and we went with Gentek Dark drift with white trim and white doors however, I do wish to use dark drift and white trim on our home but would also like a darker color on it as well. The sample picture has a horizontal siding, vertical siding, shake siding, and we wish to use novi stone siding as well as shown in the picture. We are also going with black shutters. Can you please give me a suggestion of what other darker color I should use and where on the house? Should we go with a pebble color shake where the shake is visible on the picture and your expert opinion where we should put the dark drift would be appreciated? Also, if you are able to suggest the novi stone color and mold that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Oh, our shingles are Mirage – Sandlewood.
Suggestions on window trims and vents. Could you also point in the right direction there as well.
Saw the pebble color online and it seems too dark for the shake location on the house. I’m thinking that area of the house should be lighter. What do you think? Thank you.
If you are looking to add a colour which is darker than Dark Drift, you would need to go with Gentek’s Iron Ore. The grey and the dark brown will look good together and I think that Pebble would not be too dark in the shake. It is hard to get the sense of what the colours look like online. You need to see actual samples. I would use a stone that has both grey and brown tones in it like Brownstone and use Iron Ore for the siding and then Pebble for the Shake. I think you will be happy with the combination. As for the window trims, I might suggest you use Dark Drift to create some contrast.
