Hey, hi. I'm Tim Gipson. I'm going to talk to you about selecting vinyl siding colors. Now when you're looking at vinyl siding, you gotta really determine whether...what role the vinyl siding is playing in the home. So in this case, as we look at this house right here, we've got a brick home that has some outcroppings, it has some accent areas that are vinyl siding. In these cases, what you want to do is you want to pick a color that accents the brick. So, if you have a lighter brick, then you may want to go with creams, or off whites, or...or some almond colors on your siding. And, typically what we do on this is we'll choose a siding that'll actually coordinate with the gutter system as well, and with the trim, so that your vinyl siding, your outcroppings, all those become an accent to compliment whatever color brick that you have. Now, if you have a home that happens to be all vinyl siding, then you've got some greater choices. In that case you may want to go with a certain color on your field, but you can go with different colors on your trim, and have your trim pieces be your accent pieces. And, in that case, really what you need to do is you need to look at the style, the architectural detailing in your area. And it's usually a good idea not to really go out there and do something, you know, really off key, or really extravagant. It's usually a good idea to try to fit something in that's generally found within your neighborhood. So, I'm Tim Gipson and that's how to choose vinyl siding.
