I need help redoing the house windows, door and colors.

This is a 70's modern in need of curb appeal . The roof is brown and we are redoing the kitchen which has the small window to the right of the front door. I need help with what kind of windows to change to and also ideas to get rid of the brown blocks surrounding the windows. All over color change advice too.

The windows in front are tiny. I would take the grids out and expand the opennings horizontally(check with your contractor about this). The door could be whatever you like, I would lean toward frosted glass and a tall door without that transom. As far as colors, I would look for something to set them out from the rest of the house. They are almost invisible under the roof, and it looks too dark.

Not sure what your budget is, but we supply some of the best quality windows and doors in North America. You can see our profile for contact details. I hope that helps.

Thanks for your advice. Since the house is in FL is it best to go with Fiberglass windows and door?

definitely want to lose the brown rectangles around the windows - would siding be better than the Hardie board or what materials are best for this?

I agree with Pat. Also lower the windows a tad-and make them hurricane safe quality windows.

Any comment on colors that go well with a brown roof? I like organic and natural with a pop of interest

I'd stay close to the weather wood on the bridge color. The building will look so much better once you don't have those vertical brown areas....http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6199/
