Gutters help protect your home from water damage but they can also be an aesthetically pleasing addition to your home that can increase your home’s value. To make it as eye-catching as possible, you’ll have to choose your gutter color before jumping to gutter installation. This is where the difficulty comes in.
In this post, YES Contracting Services discusses how you can choose the right gutter colors for your home.
Check In With Your Homeowners’ Association (HOA)
Your HOA is comprised of you and your neighbors. Check in with them before choosing your gutter color. They have rules regarding improvements that may affect the aesthetics of the entire neighborhood and its value. Try to meet their minimum curb appeal standards as much as possible when choosing your gutter color.
Check Your Neighbors’ Homes
Choosing the wrong gutter color can cause your home to clash with your home’s exterior and your neighbor’s. Try touring the neighborhood and observing your neighbors’ homes to look at their gutter colors. A neighbor whose home has the same style and color scheme as yours is also a good way to gain inspiration.
Your Home’s Exterior
There are two ways you can choose a gutter color based on the exterior; the first is to match the gutter with the roof while the second is to match the gutter with the home’s trim. If you need further assistance, ask your local roof repair contractors, such as YES Contracting Services, to learn more.
Of course, the color of the gutter also factors into its price. Basic factory-finish options such as white and off-white are the less costly options so if they already look great with your home, then you’re lucky. If you’re comfortable on splurging a bit, on the other hand, you can pay extra for a better color. The curb appeal improvement may even pay off in a significant way in the future.
