One thing to keep in mind about vinyl siding is that it cannot be repainted. Once you have chosen a vinyl siding color, you are stuck with that color until the siding is completely replaced. Because of this, choosing a color for vinyl siding can be overwhelming.


When choosing a vinyl siding color for your home, there are several factors to keep in mind such as roof color, size of home, style of home, and your own personal style.


It is important to consider the color of your roof. While the lifespan of siding colors can vary, a roof will typically last for around 20-30 years (depending on the material). For example, it may not be the best idea to choose a dark vinyl siding color if you have a dark roof. This can make your house feel dreary and uninviting.


The size of your home may also be an important factor to consider when choosing your vinyl siding color. A larger home may look drab with dark color siding. However, it is important to add some contrast to large homes to create dimension. For example, a large two-story home may have white, or off-white, siding with black shutters. Typically, dark colors draw your attention, which is why many homeowners choose to incorporate dark colors in accents or places where they want to grab your eye.


What is the architecture style of your home? Some homes, such as Colonial, are typically painted all the same color; however, don’t be afraid to break the rules (to an extent). For example, a beige or light gray color are good options as well.

While it is important to choose a vinyl siding color that you love, try not to choose anything that is too trendy. Replacing siding can be a huge expense so it is best to choose something timeless. In love with a bright, vibrant color? Incorporate it in your accents, such as the front door or entry mat. That way, as your style changes it will be easy to update the look of your home.


Choosing a vinyl siding color can be a daunting, yet exciting process. A few things to keep in mind when choosing a vinyl siding color are your roof color, size and style of home, as well as your personal style. For more information regarding vinyl siding and colors, visit our siding page.

  1. Thanks for the tips for choosing siding. My wife and I are planning on having vinyl siding installed on our home soon, but we haven’t found the right color. I like that you mentioned to choose something timeless and not trendy, because you don’t want to grow out of it later. I will make sure we keep this in mind.

  2. Thank you for talking about how it is important to choose the color of your home’s vinyl carefully since it can not be painted. I can see how taking the time to do your homework and to consider the type of siding that works best for the weather in your area can help you choose the one that will serve you best. Personally, I would want to make sure I consult with a professional I trust and have them help me understand what to do to protect my house by taking care of my siding properly.

  3. I had no idea that the size of your home could affect the color of the siding you should choose for it. It is important to remember that knowing this can help you find the best color that creates the contrast your home needs to look great while being protected.
