This spring we are planning to replace our vinyl skirting with steel. Our home is grey with hunter green shutters, my question is: what color steel would you go with to make it look more like a regular home? We don't want white! Thanks for your input!

The boss (wife) says dark green or a neutral color beige.

i would go with a darker shade of grey ,or the green,most foundations of stick houses are cinder block or red brick with a cement plaster.to get the look you may want.

Crud! There goes another item to add to my project list! :-) I tend to think that darker is usually better, especially if you get a lot of dirt/rain splatter.
