Just got done with my insurance company from the hail strom and went through.. They are replacing the Eaves and facia on the house and garage. It may be to late to get it done this year because of the winter coming.. but had a question.. Should I go a more traditional white Eaves and fascia to match the rest of the winow trim or should I got with a black/charcoal to match the roof and possible future upgrades?

Were not expecting our first child and in the next 2 years we want to move into a bigger better house. I'd like to obviously do what it takes to get the house it top shape.. Thanks guys..

If I didn't have enough money for re-construction, I would paint the stucco and siding the same color. You have a nice roof and the dormers add a little interest to anotherwise average structure. Use a light to medium gray (Nothing under 55 LRV to prevent warping) that will compliment your slate-gray roof. Not too light however or it will look washed out.

You may want to do the exposed foundation in a darker version of the body color.

Good luck with your project!

If someday you have a enough money for siding, use Hardie Board siding. It is a cement fiber board that is an excellent foundation for paint

My vote would be to paint the vinyl and the foundation the same and a darker colour than the stucco. then the darker colour anchors the house. Hopefully the foundation and vinyl matching will look visually similar and then would look like three elements. also some landscaping around base will hide the foundation and help get rid of it.

Or if replacing the vinyl do something like wood vertical siding that extends to the ground and eliminates the third element of the foundation.

my 2 cents worth...
