One of the most visible components of your home’s exterior is the siding. That's why choosing the right color for your siding in San Antonio is important. In fact, the color or combination of colors you choose for your siding can make or break your home's curb appeal.

We at Southwest Exteriors understand that picking the right combination of colors for your siding is not an easy task. Many homeowners have second thoughts about replacing their siding for this reason. If you're having trouble choosing a siding color, use this guide to give yourself a sure-footed start.

Take a Look Around the Neighborhood

You want your home to stand out for all the right reasons. Observe the overall color schemes of the houses in your neighborhood to determine what color scheme to choose. Try to blend in with the other house hues and then use color to add a bit of your own personality.

Consider the Architectural Style of Your Home

Stand at the curb and take a look at your house. Does your home have a traditional or a contemporary style? If your house is traditional, you might want to stick to traditional color combinations, which typically involve three colors for the body, trim and accent. Contemporary home designs, on the other hand, can involve more than three colors. By adding a second body or trim color, you can make your home more visually appealing.

Consider the Color of Your Roof, Windows, Doors & Masonry

The color of your roof, windows, doors and the masonry should always be a factor in choosing your siding. Choose a siding color that will blend well and/or complement the other components of your home’s exteriors to make it more pleasing to the eye.
