Default pick a color

Getting ready to repaint the house now that we have the new roof. Just waiting for stucco repair to be done all around the house after I removed all of the old shutters.

Left is slightly darker, right is same color family, 1 shade lighter. Bands will be white.

Dark gray looks great. It makes the white pop as well.

I'd do a slightly lighter gray but they both look great.

Great seeing you guys again! Decent steaks, good scotch, and excellent company.

A lighter color that reflects heat better is always a solid choice for a sunny, hot climate.

I like the gray you have now, maybe consider a gray that is a few shades lighter?

Form is sitting on my desk to be submitted tomorrow. Which color is the last question. Fortunately for us, our clubhouse has a nearly identical color selection, and many people never even asked for permission, like my brother in law next door. He went from pink to white with gray bands.
