Vinyl Siding Colors

When vinyl siding first hit the mainstream market, there wasn’t a whole lot of color choices to choose from. But, with new innovation and new technology for vinyl siding, there are more vinyl siding colors to choose from than ever before.

Choosing the right vinyl siding color can be a daunting task, with the many options out there. The best way to decide is to have a look around your neighborhood and see what others have used. If you live in a country setting, try to base your color choices on the lighter side to compliment the greenery. If you have a colonial style home like the many here in Boston, you may want to choose colors of the grayish to blueish vinyl siding with black shutter and white trim. Ranch style homes can opt for more browns and tans with a white trim package. Everyone is different, so choose the vinyl siding color that best compliments you! Have a vinyl siding color chart with you and place against your home to play around with a few ideas.

Be sure to include your roofs shingle style and color when choosing your vinyl siding color, you don’t want to have blue siding on your home with a brown colored roof shingles.

  1. I love vinyl siding and it’s important to remember to consider what you would want for your front door as well. I like all the companies you listed… there is a lot of variety and lots of different colors to choose from!

  2. Yes, your front door entry way is one of your main focal points to your home and should be considered when choosing vinyl siding colors, and also don’t forget to consider window replacements

  3. Trying to find a type of vinyl siding for some repairs. No ones website gives me a look at the profile of siding I’m looking for. Actually there are no looks at available siding for me to even get a close match. I need six 12 ft sticks to repair this home and can’t find it.
