Who doesn’t dream about heading up to the cottage for a peaceful weekend by the lake? Pure bliss and serenity.  However, just like your regular home, cottages need proper maintenance and updating.  The last thing you want is for your “getaway” to become too much work!  The trick is to create a low-maintenance cottage that captures its rural environment, giving you time to sit back and relax!

KP Vinyl Siding is the perfect choice!

  • The number one reason is that it is low maintenance. A spray with a garden hose and you are done. No more scraping, caulking and painting your cottage!
  • Also remember: vinyl is warranted not to rot, chip or peel. It will not ever have to be painted.
  • Looking to emphasize the character of your cottage? Why not try Perfection Shingles?  They will bring just the right accent of rustic charm to your cottage.
  • Next we have to talk color. Color should reflect your taste and the style of the cottage.  Make sure to select 3: one as your main, second as your trim and third as the accent.

Tip: when choosing your colors, take note of the landscape.  If you are in the woods, natural earth tones would be perfect in that setting.  If the sun shines on your cottage, bright colors may be the perfect fit.  Check out these color trends!

Once you’ve prepared your cottage’s exterior with this low-maintenance strategy, you will be able to actually use your cottage as a “getaway” and escape reality for a bit.  Who doesn’t need that every once and a while?
