Siding Color Trends for 2022

Jan 24, 2022

From increased property value to improved energy efficiency, the benefits of installing new siding are varied and plentiful. “Aesthetically speaking, new siding has a direct impact on curb appeal, particularly with regards to color choice,” said Wendy Cline, J&B Construction owner.

Sherwin-Williams announced its 2022 color of the year – Evergreen Fog, which the company describes as, “Soothing, subtle, and a perfect shade to freshen up any space.” “As a result of this announcement, we can expect to see an influx of homeowners selecting green siding along with others capitalizing on additional home exterior color trends in honor of the New Year, including the incorporation of neutrals as well as darker hues,” Wendy said.

Evergreen Fog is characterized as a, “versatile and calming hue, a chameleon color of gorgeous green-meets-gray, with just a bit of blue,” according to The website also states, “It’s a simple but sophisticated wash of beautiful, organic color for spaces that crave a subtle yet stunning statement shade.”

“Evergreen Fog is considered a lighter shade on the green color spectrum, which means it’s a highly versatile color that can be used to complement a broad range of color pallets,” said Wendy. Along with the color of the year, darker shades of green are also expected to be popular on home exteriors in 2022. Darker greens are particularly effective when combined with a black color palette as it gives a home a trendy, avant-garde feel that is both surprising and charming. “Alternatively, darker greens can also be matched with neutral colors, such as taupe or cream, to emit a more earthy, contemporary feel,” she said.

Pure, bright white has been a longtime classic color choice for home exteriors. It’s most often associated with farmhouse-style homes, but it has the capacity to dramatically improve the look and feel of nearly every home type. “Given its longstanding history in home design and versatility, it’s no wonder it served as inspiration for the next home exterior color trend in 2022 where homeowners are expected to gravitate towards off-whites or warmer shades of white,” said Wendy. “It’s clear Benjamin Moore’s 2022 Color Trends Palette is fueling this trend. In fact, the palette features a total of 14 hues – many of which are classified as neutral pastels. These include Collector’s Item, “a pink-tinged off-white,” Natural Linen, which, “provides just the right amount of rustic warmth and elegance,” and Steam, “ widely appealing white paint color that offers a clean yet soft look,” according to Benjamin

“Interestingly, the colors on the opposite end of the color spectrum, which include bolder, darker hues, are also expected to rise in popularity in the home exterior world during the coming year,” Wendy said. Achieving balance is the key to successfully incorporating a darker shade on your home’s exterior. “Whether you prefer a deep, cool shade of blue or a sophisticated, moody grey, you’ll want to ensure that the color you choose seamlessly aligns with its immediate surroundings,” she said. “Additionally, it’s helpful to incorporate lighter tones on a home’s trim or shutters to prevent the home from becoming overwhelmingly dark and gloomy. Different textures such as stone and wood can also be utilized to ensure your home’s exterior is welcoming.”

Selecting a color for your home’s siding can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it’s also important to give this decision the thoughtful consideration it deserves. Not only should a homeowner consider modern siding color trends, but they should also think about the style of their home as well as their neighbors’ homes and weigh that against their personal preferences. “The right color palette can truly enhance a home’s exterior and curb appeal for many years to come,” said Wendy.

 The only complaint I have is when I have J&B do my roof in another 30 years or so, is Dave their sales man (a great guy) would not guaranty I could get the same great crew I had this time. They did a fantastic job. Much better than the last roofing company did. A nice bunch of guys. Did a very nice job cleaning up. I'd give them 10 stars but 5 is the limit. If you need a roof done this is the company you want to do it. One more point I need to make. The guys that did the chimney flashing are artists. I went up on the roof when they were done and was very pleased with not only the roofing job but the sculptured sheet metal work. It's kind of a shame it's on the roof and not hanging on the family room wall :). You get the point. Hire em. You'll like em. 
 We live in a historic designated neighborhood and recently had our 30 year wood shingle roof replaced with another wood roof and new gutters. From Day 1 of the project to the final day, the entire team was responsive, professional, and very competent. When some minor changes were proposed by us they quickly and effortlessly complied. After going through this experience with J&B, I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a roof and gutter replacement, whether it be a simple or complicated project. 
 J & B did an amazing job from start to finish. The initial meeting at my home took place exactly at the time that was agreed upon and Scott was thorough in his explanations and transparent about costs. When the time came to begin the project, the team that showed up was friendly, professional and timely in getting the project done. The cleanup afterward was such that it looked like they hadn't been there at all. The roof looks great, there were no surprises and Scott came by to inspect the work and explain the warranty upon job completion. I would highly recommend them.
