Suggestions for home exterior update
Hello, we purchased our house last summer, and are in the process of updating the exterior. We will be immediately replacing the eaves trough, down spouts, fascia and soffit and then move on to siding, windows, and eventually the roof tiles (in 5yrs). I’m trying to come up with a colour scheme that will minimize the many angles of this house, and am moving away from the green accents, but can’t completely clash with the green roof tiles as I’ll need to look at the combination for the next few years. Can you recommend a eaves, fascia & soffet combo to compliment siding in the darkish (not dove) grey/green family? We will not have shutters, are thinking of white windows, and haven’t decided on the front door colour but I’m leaning to a “pop” of colour. Many thanks, Jayne.
There is a lot going on with this home. The first thing I would suggest is the you continue the stone product around the tall front portion of the house, to break up that wall a bit. If you cannot match the existing stone, I might suggest that you replace it with something like Gentek’s Versetta Stone product in a Plum Creek in a tight cut profile. There are many tones you could take from this stone to chose for the siding. If you are keeping the green roof and windows for now, how about going with Gentek’s Moonlit Moss in a Board and Batten siding and go with Almond for the trim, soffit, fascia and eaves. The existing dark green windows and roof will still blend with these colours until you change them out in a few years. When you do change them out, you should replace your windows with a Pebble or Almond colour and go with a lighter brown colour for the roof. These darker richer tones will give the home a modern look for years to come. http://www.boralamerica.com/stone/versetta-stone
