Hello. We are building an extension to our home. The picture shows the extension with matching siding and shutters. We want to have new siding on the whole house and the extension and I hate those shutters! I love the faux wood look and was thinking we could do faux shingle on the top and the rest would be faux wood siding but I’m not sure how that would look. The brick is in good condition but I’m not sure it would match the new style we are going with. I want to put stone on top of the brick (I was told that is an option but not sure if that is correct). The roof is still in good shape but its colour limits us in what color we can select that siding. We like a khaki/green colour….my roof is not due for another 4 years, perhaps we should redo in black so that it has the same age as the extension. Anyhow, any advice would be welcomed. Thank you!
If indeed you can install faux stone over the brick, I would suggest you pick the colour for that first and then pick a tone from the stone for your wood siding. Most faux stone products have neutral and grey tones in them. If you’re stuck with one that has a brown/neutral tone in it, your roof colour would be just fine. I would suggest you simply replace the brick with the faux stone and continue the stone onto the extension, installing it on the bottom half of the wall on the extension.
Gentek carries a line of faux stone called Versetta Stone. You can view the product at http://www.boralamerica.com/stone/versetta-stone. If you were to chose the the Plum Creek colour in the Tight cut profile, a colour like Gentek’s Monterey Sand would look great, and your existing brown roof would still blend well.
