Textured Home Exteriors – Stucco, Stone & Brick

Black and bronze aluminum fencing is the most common compliment to complete the grand estate style look a textured home exterior seems to represent. Stucco & Stone have modern earthy tones. A natural aluminum fence color such as a textured bronze or black will fit extremely well. On the other side of the palette wheel, a white wooden fence can fit very well with brick style exteriors.

Dark Home Exteriors – Browns, Grey’s & Greens

For home exteriors that take on the darker side, use a fence color with some contrast to help lighten things up. Vinyl and composite fences are available in lighter neutral colors and are an excellent option to accomplish this.  Of course, wood fencing is an option as it can be painted any contrasting color that would fit your exterior color schemes.

White, Beige and Light Colored Home Exteriors

With a neutral home exterior, your fence colors and styles are truly limitless! Simple or extravagant, anything is possible. Vinyl and Composite fences offer a large selection of styles, sizes, and colors, making it easy for you to create a customized look for your property or blend your homes exterior accent colors into your fence.  Wood and aluminum are additional options that will add beauty and elegance.
