Ultimately, of course, you’ll be the one to choose the color that’s right for your house. But our design team will give you as much guidance and as many ideas as you need.

Selecting colors (body color, trim color and any accent colors) is one of the first decisions you’ll make in your re-siding project. Until that part of the process is complete, your job won’t progress towards installation.

Most people don’t know for certain what color they want at this stage in the process, so don’t be intimidated if you’re considering new siding but are stuck on colors.

We have a reference list that’s 50 pages long! We list all of the components of each job in the book, including features and colors. You’ll be able to drive around the Minneapolis and St. Paul areas to see multiple examples of colors you might be considering.

It’s important to get this in-person look as colors in natural light can appear significantly different than they do on a screen or in a book. There’s no substitute for seeing it in the real world with your own eyes.

You’ll be able to find houses similar to yours or in neighborhoods of similar vintage to get a feel for and idea of what people in a similar position to yours did with their siding project.

Maybe you’ll even find a homeowner out shoveling snow or raking the leaves. They might be able to share their experience with Craftsman’s Choice and James Hardie siding.

Our design team can also do a rendering specific to your house. We’ll take a digital picture of your house. Then, using the Hover software, we’ll show you what the colors you’re considering would look like on your house.

We’ll also provide you with 12-foot sample boards, if needed, so that you can see different colors held up to your house.

When you choose Craftsman’s Choice, you’ll be working with designers that care about your lasting satisfaction. We’ll help throughout the process by showing you similar houses, providing renderings specific to your project and bringing samples to your house.

Ben Juncker


When Ben Juncker was sitting in his high school career planning class, siding installer was not on his list of potential career paths. As with most people in the construction industry, certain questionable life choices led to a point where they were wearing a tool belt, working with their hands. His path started just this way and he would not change a thing. Those early years in his business of scraping and clawing their way to profitability and stability, have helped him to build a culture of hard work and perseverance at Craftsman’s Choice. Ben started his company in 1998 and they installed their first James Hardie job in 2000. Since that time Craftsman’s Choice has become one of the nation’s top James Hardie Remodelers. They have won James Hardie’s prestigious President’s Club award every year since it’s inception in 2015.
