    Are You Neglecting Your Gutters?

    Let’s say someone shows up at your house saying they’re the “gutter police.” They want to conduct a surprise inspection of your eavestrough. How would you react?

    Humour us. How confident are you that your gutters or eavestrough will pass the inspection with flying colours?

    How To Choose Siding Colours

    Many people, when surveyed, said that the outside of a house influenced their opinion of the person inside it. We've all heard the mantra—don't judge a book by its' cover.

    Even though this is great advice, it turns out that many people still do it! This is partially due to unconscious bias, colour association, and colour psychology. For instance, you might walk through a neighbourhood with an assortment of homes.

    Most are painted white or gray, with a few red and blue outliers. With tidy accented trim, most of them look the same. Then, you see a home with neon pink and orange siding colours.
    You might subconsciously assume that the owner is a free spirit, a hippie with artistic inclinations. Just like that, you've been influenced by a home's exterior!

    Choosing siding colours is a big deal. That's why we've assembled a guide to help with choosing siding colours, so you have the perfect match for your home!
