Siding is a valuable aspect of your exterior property. As many building owners know, siding is largely responsible for protecting your property from weather elements, such as ultraviolet light from the sun and large hail during storms. However, it also plays an important role in boosting your curb appeal. Incorporating a balanced color scheme, including quality painting services from your roofing contractor on your outdoor wall cladding will further enhance the architectural beauty of your space.
Here are some tips on achieving color harmony in your trim and siding:
Creating Harmony with Analogous Colors
If you’re finding colors or shades for your siding, the color wheel is the great tool to start with. One of the most effective ways to create a color palette is to use analogous colors—colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. For maximum effect, use a combination of three colors on your exterior. The blue, green-blue, green pattern is an example. This limits contrast on your property and produce a calming impact to the eye.
Complementary Colors For Distinction
Another color scheme that siding and roof repair specialists use is the complementary colors. This color duo can be formed by tracing their opposite color on the wheel. For example, orange and blue generate the most contrast, particularly when used in their most vibrant form.
Most experts in the business use James Hardie’s exclusive ColorPlus® Technology paint to provide colors that can last longer and perform better than others. No matter how bold or quirky your selected exterior colors are, this fade- and UV ray-resistant finish will surely increase your curb appeal.
Picking Warm or Cool Tones
Tones are an important part of color selection. Reds, yellows and oranges make up the warm spectrum, whereas blues, purples and greens are considered cooler tones. According to roofing repair companies, warm-colored siding evokes the feeling of excitement and cool colors create a sense of calmness.
