Caring for your home can feel like a full-time job and its exterior siding is usually not a huge priority. The best way to limit major projects is through regular maintenance. Siding—the layer on the exterior walls of your house—comes in a range of materials and usually lasts 20-40 years. However, in old age, it can develop cracks or leaks that lead to high energy costs and a variety of other complications.

In the mean time, we’ve come up with five questions you should think over when picking out a color for the siding.
1. What Is The Size Of Your Home?
Some colors that contrast between light and dark can completely change the homes appearance. Since color swatches can generally seem misleading, be aware of the effect it has on the building. Dark shades draw attention to features while light colors tend to neutralize.
2. What Is The Design Or Architecture Of My Home?
Certain style homes look better with specific shades while other styles can match any color. Note the visual cues of your home when selecting the color of the siding.
3. What Do The Homes In My Neighborhood Look Like?
We aren’t suggesting you copy the same styles as your neighbors, but if you pick out an over the top shade, it might look funny against the scene as a whole and in some cases, cause a stir with any homeowners associations. So consider the outdoor surroundings during the process of your color selection.
4. Does The Shade Look Good All Year Around?
Since our area experiences erratic seasonal changes, the color of your siding may appear differently based on the weather. For example, bright direct sunlight can make colors look brighter. We suggest applying color swatches to the house so that you can view them during different times of the day effectively giving you a feel for how the shade will look.
5. What Other Colors Are You Working With?
If you are trying to combine other features of your home with the siding, definitely keep those in mind while making your decision. The shades should complement each other well for an elegant appearance so don’t let the color of the siding be your main color scheme. Choose one that brings light to all of the aspects of the structure.

The siding you choose might not be able to influence traffic patterns in Chattanooga, but it will have a say in how much money you can save in electrical cost. Here are three of the major benefits of installing energy efficient siding this fall.
Upfront Financial Benefits
Vinyl siding is relatively less expensive initially because it costs less to install than wood, fiber cement and many other types of siding.
Long-term Financial Benefit
Vinyl siding is less costly over time because maintenance expenses are virtually non-existent. You don’t need to repaint or restain it like wood. In fact there’s barely any upkeep at all, other than the occasional hose shower.
Energy financial benefits
Insulated siding’s high R-value (resistance to heat) will keep energy costs manageable, giving you naturally cooler summers and efficiently warmer winters.
We strongly recommend walking/driving around your neighborhood to see how different home siding styles work (and don’t work). Before you fuel up, you also have the convenience of seeing an array of cool and complementary siding styles in our gallery.
