Need to know the best color and style for the side door of my house. Please note we had it commercial brown (like trim in windows) but because it is exposed to full sun it fades and causes the weatherstripping and seals to crack and warp. Also I am planning to add accent stone to the bottom half of the house if you have any suggestions of color/style that would be appreciated. I already have my quote for the garden doors. It is very secluded where I live and I would like to have clear windows but would like to block out the heat any suggestions here.
For the side door, you could try a colour like Pebble. It fits in with the brown of the home, but is not too dark and should not fall to the effects of the direct sun. As well, when picking stone, I would pick a version that has both some browns and some greys in it as well lighten the look of the home. As for your windows, if you do not want to tint them just install some window treatments like blinds to help keep out the heat of the sun. If you are buying Energy Star rated windows, like Gentek’s Regency line, you can get glass packages that will help keep the cool/heat in the home and cool/heat from outside, outside the home. Inquire with your installer about the best glass package for your home.
