colonial house shingle sidings stain color?
We just moved into our new house this summer. We were told that the house is colonial style with white cedar shingle sidings. Typical house you would see in new england. As a matter of factor, we are not far from Newport, RI. We want to stain the house with either solid color or just apply bleaching oil to get the Cap Cod gray nature aging color. It is hard to decide because we saw most houses with bleaching oil ended up with an uneven gray color (looks like has been take care of for a long time. (Maybe we did not look at the real bleaching oil coated sidings? they might just let the sidings aging without put anything on?). I know our house is not an old house, but been lack of the history of these architecture styles, I wanted to ask what are the colors that we can choose to put on the sidings if we go with solid stain? The trims are white. We actually like the current nature wood color, but it won't last very long. Picture is attached.
Thanks a lot
