Select a color that complements your home’s style, neighborhood, and personal preferences. Test paint samples to find the perfect shade. If you’re trying to match existing paint or siding, keep in mind that the product may have faded on existing surfaces and using the same paint may result in a darker, mismatched section of the house. If you have trouble matching existing colors, opting for a contrasting material or color such as stone veneer or metal siding may be a better option than color-matching existing siding or paint.
