What colour would you suggest?

Question

Claudine asks:

 

We will be replacing the eavestrough in the Spring and would like to go with a windswept smoke as the colour or stay in the grey tones – sick of the taupe, brown colours – will also be replacing our front door and garage door to match.  (Sorry only picture is of the back of the house).  What colour would you suggest?

Answer:

 

I like Windswept Smoke with your brick colour you could also try Gentek’s Sable colour as an option for your soffit, fascia and eaves. It is a grey colour that has some brown undertones that would blend well with the brick.


Considering board and batten

Question

Ludwik asks:

Hello, we are planning to replace, siding, soffits, gutters etc in our house. Color of our windows is pebble and we are thinking about the same color for siding and the rest but we are open minded for other color suggestions. For siding we are also considering board and batten style. What are your suggestions?

Answer:

Pebble would be a nice choice for the siding, soffit and fascia.  Another suggestion I have is Pebble for the siding, to lighten the look of the home, and then go with Sable, for the Soffit, Fascia and Eavestrough on the home.  Sable has both brown and grey tones to it that would look great with the Pebble and the brick colour.  As for the profile of the siding, I think that the horizontal siding looks good on the home, but the Board and Batten siding would add some more character to the home and give it a different look, I would definitely consider the Board and Batten.


Match the angel stone and roof

Question

Melissa asks:

Hello, We are planning on putting all new soffit, fascia, eaves, downspouts and siding on our home, plus a new front door. Can you please give us some suggestions for colours for these and what style of siding that would match the angel stone and roof? We are also planning on painting the brick a medium smokey grey colour. For the soffit and fascia we were thinking of the colour Sable and the siding we weren’t too sure. Windswept smoke maybe? Also the windows will stay the colour white. What colour door would you suggest, we were thinking of a solid wood dark brown barn style door. Any help would be appreciated!

Answer:

I like the ideas of Windswept Smoke in a vertical siding like Board and Batten to create a different look. As for the soffit, fascia and eavestrough, I like Sable, but I would also consider Pebble to bring the grey and the stone together.  Either would look good.  As for the door, I like the brown but I would not go too brown, maybe something like Gentek’s Dark Drift or Saddle Brown.

Can’t decide on colour

Question

Gosia asks:

We need to replace rainspouts, fascia and soffit. Can’t decide on colour. Should we use one colour for all three or get soffit a shade lighter then fascia and rainspouts? Roof needs to be replaced as well.

Answer:

I would keep the soffit, fascia and eavestrough on your home all the same colour and my suggestion would be the colour closest to the colour of the siding on your home.  I think Pebble might be close.  If you having a hard time finding a colour that is close, try Gentek’s Sable colour, in has both brown and grey and greenish tones in it that would look good with the brick and siding colour.

Changing the soffit, fascia and eavestrough

Question

Darren asks:

I recently bought a house and am planning on changing the soffit, fascia and eavestrough. I was thinking of going with Gentek’s slate, for the colour, but I have a brown roof which is new as of 2013 so I will not be changing that anytime soon. Do you think the colours will not go together very well?

Darren 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer:

My first choice for your eaves would be Sable as it has both grey and brown tones in it. It would bring together the brick and roof tones as well.

Would you add an accent colour?

Question

Iqbal asks:

 

  1. What siding, soffit, facia and eavestrough colours would you recommend for our home?
  2. Would siding, soffit, facia and eavestrough in one colour – canyon clay work with white windows?, if yes, what front door colour would you recommend?
  3. Would you add an accent colour, and if yes, where?

 

 

 

Iqbal 1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer:

For your home, I would recommend that you go with Pebble for the siding and Sable for the Soffit, Fascia and Eavestroughing. Wicker would look okay, but the look would not be much different from your existing look.  Pebble is a bit darker and would give a different look.  As for the front door, I would go dark like Black or Dark Grey to add in some accent colour.

We like neutral colours

Question

Tara asks:

Hello, we are renovating our house, we would like some advice on stucco, trim around windows, soffit and fascia. We like neutral colours such as beige and light gray. We would really appreciate your advice for colour selection.

 

Tara 1 Tara 2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Answer:

To keep with the colours that you like, I would suggest you do the stucco  colour close to Gentek’s Pebble and then trim your windows and soffit and fascia in Gentek’s Sable colour.  This will tie it together with the colour of your roof and your garage doors.


New Roof – now want siding, soffit, windows and doors

Question

Susan asks:

Have a new roof and now want to replace siding, waves, soffit, windows, and doors. Sable siding and windows have been recommended with pebble door. Not to confident that this is the right choice and need help!

 

Susan 1

 

 

 

Answer:

I do like the combination of Sable with Pebble on your home, but Sable is only available in aluminum siding.  If you are looking to do vinyl siding, I would either suggest Pebble siding with Windswept Smoke soffit, fascia, windows.  I would chose a black or dark grey door in this case.  You could also flip it around and go with Windswept Smoke siding with Pebble for the soffit, fascia, and windows with a black or dark grey door.  These tones will look good with the stone/brick on the home.

Change the colour of our siding, eaves and fascia

Question

Frances asks:

Hi, I am looking to  and possibly the garage door. As you can see our front door is the main focal point. We are considering the Earthen Merisier or Dark Drift or Pebble Kaki as colours to replace the siding on the top of the house. For the eaves and fascia we are looking at Brownstone or Pebble Kaki or Wicker or Canyon Clay. With changing the siding, eaves and fascia what are your suggestions for the colour of the garage door? Also what do you suggest for the windows if we remove the shutters, what colour combinations do you suggest with our home?

Frances 1 Frances 2 Frances 3

 

 

 

Answer:

I like your choice of Pebble for the siding but I would chose Gentek’s Sable as the Soffit, Fascia and eavestrough colour, along with the Shutters.  Sable is brown/grey tone that looks great with Pebble and the dark brown brick of your home.  I do like the current colour of your garage because I do not like the garage door to stand out, I like it to blend so it is not a focal point.  The only other suggestion I have for the garage door is to change it to Sable to blend in with the other accents of the home.  Sable is dark enough so that the door does not become a focal point.

facelift to my 80\’s home

Question

Fabio asks:

I would like to give a facelift to my 80\’s home using contemporary colours and materials. I\’ve struggled with design options and colours and hoping you can help me out. I\’m looking at replacing the Aluminum siding, Window Shutters, New Roof, garage door and front entrance enclosure. I find the side and rear of the house very drab and would welcome any suggestions you might have . Thank-you

Fabio 1 Fabio 2 Fabio 3

 

The current brick colour is neutral which gives you a lot of options.  My first choice would be to bring out the grey tone in the brick.  I would replace your siding with Gentek’s Iron Ore or Windswept Smoke.  Pick the one that is closest to the grey in the brick.  This would add some moders appeal to the home, because dark greys are very popular right now.  I would then go with a medium to light grey for the roof, change the shutter to Gentek’s Sable along with the soffit, fascia and eaves.  I would replace your front entrance enclosure to black or dark grey and your garage to Sable. By adding these darker colours, you will eliminate the washed out 80’s look of the home and end up with a more modern looking home.
