Exterior color scheme

Posted by embemis (My Page) on

Past time for us to decide on the color of our metal roof! We are leaning towards silver with the hardiplank siding maybe a light light blue/green. ( possibly sw rainwashed) what do you think? We are not in a neighborhood, so there are no restrictions on color. This is quite a change from the original plan of black shingles, white Siding and black shutters. Please give your opinion and any other color suggestions!

RE: Exterior color scheme

I love the silver metal roof with rainwashed... it would have been one of my choices if we weren't limited on our colors so much. I love lake homes with silver (galvanized?) roofs... but white is always a lovely color too! I've never seen a white house I didn't like. ;)

RE: Exterior color scheme

I got samples of every neutral metal color in the world, it seemed. Carried them around for months, held them at 45 degrees above a piece of wood painted BM Backwoods to mimic our siding. I like the color I ended up with, but honestly, it reflects the sky a lot, so it doesn't "read" the same color I thought I was picking out except from certain angles.

In the right setting, I do like the straight metallic colors. Also, look up Zactique, it is something in between a color and a pure metallic.
