Vinyl Siding Color Combinations

Remodeling, home makeover

Veneer was the chosen material to redo the exterior walls of houses previously. But the drawback with veneer is, it flakes and rots early. Vinyl, however, is durable and does not flake or rot. It is also unaffected by sun, cold, salt, and snow, and is a long-lasting siding. Maintaining and cleaning the vinyl siding is also a simple task. Vinyl is actually a form of plastic made from polyvinyl chloride, commonly referred to as PVC. It lends a completely new look to the house. The latest find in vinyl siding is vertical vinyl siding. Some of the brands of vinyl sidings are Journeymen Select, Revere Sovereign Select, etc.

There is a wide spectrum of colors one can choose vinyl siding from. If you are of the opinion, that the exteriors get bad very soon, then you can opt for vinyl in darker tones. Some of the colors include dark greens, deep blues, darker earth tones, etc. However, if you stay in an area, where the summer temperatures are always on the higher side, then you will rather want to choose the lighter hues. Choosing a vinyl siding color is rather easier, for there are easily more than hundreds of shades of vinyl available in the market. Previously people stuck to using tan, beige and white color, however, the trend has changed over the last few years and people are experimenting a lot more with other colors as well.

Tips for Choosing Vinyl Siding Color Combinations

  • Choose a vinyl siding color which will add to the beauty of your house. Try to choose a color which blends with the neighboring houses. A color lighter or darker by a shade or two, can be chosen.
  • If green or blue color compliments the surrounding you reside in, do not hesitate to use it as the color combination for your house.
  • You can choose complementary colors for the windows, doors and shutters. In case, the vinyl siding color is dark and a light color is chosen for windows, doors and shutters, they may spoil the look of the house, when they fade.

It depends

You can paint some types of vinyl siding if the color gets old....the biggest drawback is that you really don't have access to the exterior of the house....if you ever have to do repairs siding is a pain in the neck..last thing...when you go to sell the place siding is looked upon as being a 'mask' of what problems you may want to hide, whether you know they exist or not..not too many building inpsectors actually check under siding but you could be liable to the new owner if serious problems arise in the future..

    Mar 23, 2007 by suthrngirl | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    I know there are cleaners you can buy to clean vinyl siding, but is there anything that can prevent this.

    • Yes there are products that will teter mildew growth, yuk.

      The best people to call can be found at the Environment and Health department at the local council. They should be able to advise.

      In the meentime use usual washing up liquid and a scrubbing brushm alsways best done when its been raining for a few days since this loosens the mildew. HONEST.

  • Avatar GARY M IS THERE A WAX FOR VINYLE SIDING?
    Mar 28, 2010 by GARY M | Posted in Decorating & Remodeling

    I was thinking of going to the car wash and see if i can get some of the wax they use

    • Never heard of waxing the vinyl siding of a house. You are meaning the siding of a house? I am fairly sure there are products for cleaning the vinyl siding of a house if use of a power washer with water does not clean it …pe of product. You might e-mail the question to (I think). Public Broadcasting Service has program called This Old House, and the guys will answer questions. I do not recall if a reply e-mail will be sent with an answer.

  • Avatar shorty Handing out Cleaning Flyer's
    Aug 05, 2008 by shorty | Posted in Small Business

    I used to get cleaning jobs from word of mouth until after I had my son. I have made up flyer's and really don't want to put them in the grocery store or anything like that because I don't want to travel to far to clean with the way gas prices are. So my question is should I go to specific neighborhoods and knock on doors to hand out flyer's, how should I go about handing them out?

    • You may first want to make sure you have nice flyers made to catch people eyes (maybe a nice design too)

      I know Reduced Printing has both printing and design services at a low cost.

      Secondly, I would hire kids looking for a part time job to distribute the flyers door-to-door and around stores/cars in the neighborhood. You can post an ad and find some help at CraigsList.org

  • Avatar rnlaxtn17 With the way the economy is these days, would it be a good to start of cleaning service business??
    Jul 18, 2008 by rnlaxtn17 | Posted in Small Business

    Looking to start a cleaning service business with just my wife. We will focus on both commercial and residential contracts with a 60/40 percent ratio.

    We have the name picked out. Business plan is in progre …e have chosen eco-friendly products that are not only safe for our clients, but also their clients, family members and pets.

    Are we heading in the right direction to continue and any suggestions?? Thank you

    • Horray for you!!! You really seem to have your act together!!

      I disagree that this is a bad time to start a cleaning business-residential or commercial. It's all on where you target your potential clientel …cles and/or a vinyl wrap. It's a mobile billboard. Then park it in parking lots (close to exits and stop signs) or on the street in the areas where you want customers.

      Best of Luck to you & your wife!!

    Dec 19, 2010 by Kapowpow | Posted in Small Business

    I'm 21 years old and I want to start my own business up.

    First off. Does anyone have any suggestions on a small business someone my age could start up?

    My first idea was cleaning roofs. there …ng that up. I know how to market, I know how to sell these services, I have the equipment, I'm just worried about legal issues. Taxes, Permits, Licenses, Etc.

    Please let me know how I can get this started!

    • You are the only one that can figure that out. You need to think about something you like to do, complete a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats) analysis and write a business plan to prove that the business idea is viable.
