Swap Out Your Home's Siding
Switch out your home’s outdated, yellowed siding for long-lasting vinyl and enjoy an instant aesthetic enhancement. Struggling to choose a product and tint that suits your home’s style and architecture? Here are 15 vinyl siding colors with staying power.
The dark-on-dark combination is an exterior design trend that’s growing in popularity. Royal Building Products’ Exterior Portfolio Market Square line features a variety of deep tones, including this intense Indigo, that provide a regal upgrade. Here, the rich blue pairs well with the dark wood door and shutters.
Deep tones are now soaring in popularity and are quickly outpacing light colors as a primary exterior color choice, says Kristine Swint, Director of Marketing Communications for Royal Building Products. She adds that “navy is both a classic color yet still makes a bold design statement.” On this home, the dark base color from the company’s Celect® line looks exceptional next to white accents and a stone border.
Shale (Clapboard), Grove (Board & Batten), and River Rock (Trim)
Swint also points out the growing trend of mixing materials and styles, especially when it comes to adorning the exteriors of dwellings that feature a modern farmhouse aesthetic. She adds that “board and batten siding mixed with stone or brick continues to gain popularity for a modern farmhouse look.” The mix of natural and neutral colors and textures used on this house (also from the Celect line) delivers an impressive visual impact.
Alside’s Charter Oak siding collection contains a slew of highly durable options (capable of withstanding Category 5 winds) including an expansive color palette. This dark, bold blue-green siding choice adds a powerful punch to the home’s exterior. Pair the deep color with bright white accents for a dramatic, eye-catching effect.
According to Susan DiMauro, Director of Marketing Communications at Associated Materials, blue and gray hues are in high demand. Blue and gray colors from the company’s Charter Oak line of vinyl siding—including Ageless Slate pictured above—amounted to fifty percent of sales for 2019.
