Modern siding colors are pulling away from neutral colors and leaning more toward pure white or dark tones, including pure black. If you’re one of the homeowners who are deciding on dark tones for your siding, you’ve come to the right place.
Vinyl is a popular choice among homeowners, and it’s also low maintenance. However, if you’re aiming for a true black siding color, then vinyl may not be the one for you. Vinyl is offered in many dark shades, but not true black. Despite this, it is a siding material that’s known for its strength, versatility and insulation properties.
Fiber cement siding can either come factory-painted or primed on-site painting. Since fiber cement siding can be painted with 100% acrylic latex paint, you can choose any color that you want. If you’re aiming for true black, fiber cement is a great option.
Metal siding is not as popular as other siding options in the market. Like all the other options, dark colors tend to absorb heat more, making your siding hot on the surface. This can become a problem for your dark metal siding. Always make sure that dark metal siding has a ventilation gap or high-temperature underlayment to protect the structure of your home.
