All over exterior color suggestions!!!
May 13, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We are remodeling our 1946 house and will be replacing the roof, windows and adding a 500 sq ft remodel to the back of the house. For windows we are going with Marvin Integrity in dark bronze but haven't ordered them yet. We need help with color for the roof, front door, gable, garage door & gutters. Our preference is not to paint the brick. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Look at the Corning Roofing site to try different roofing and siding colors. One I came up with their Aged Copper roof is Cappuccino Muffin 1155 for the trim and Jonesboro Cream 241 for the siding.

Another option is Mexicana 2172-30 for the trim and Gloucester Sage HC-100 and Florida Orange 152 for the front door.

A new garage door in a carriage style will look good.

Are you going with double hung divided windows or stay the same?

It would be nice to replace the entry covering with a gable. The problem is that you don't have much room with the window right next to it. Maybe a gable held up by corbles would work:

When budget allows, I think you could change out you walkway to something not so straight and narrow. It also would be nice to have access from the driveway to the front door.

Thanks for your suggestions! Nice color scheme.

Front windows will all be double hung except for fixed window on far right.

Future plans, are to put a fence in front and re-route the pathway to front door. Front door will be fir with glass panels.

I am assuming siding color - Jonesboro Cream 241 will continue around the sides of the house and on the addition siding.

Can you recommend a color for the gutters?

Thanks again!
