Royal Building Products Unveils its 2019 Exterior Colour Trend of the Year

Topics: Siding

Woodbridge, Ontario - December 17, 2018 - Royal® Building Products today announced Slatescape as its 2019 Exterior colour Trend of the Year. Evoking the hue of a storm-churned wave, Slatescape is a fresh take on the prominence of gray in exterior colour trends in recent years. This mid-tone, blue-gray is a versatile shade that works equally well with other soft neutrals, as it does with brighter, punchier colours.

The Slatescape tone has inspired colours which are available across the Royal Building Products’ portfolio of siding products, including Royal Vinyl Siding (Storm) and Celect® Cellular Composite Siding (Coastline).

“The Slatescape tone is a soothing combination of blue and gray that evokes feelings of calm and tranquility,” said Kristine Swint, Director, Interactive Strategy and Design at Royal Building Products. “We have seen homeowners gravitating toward deeper blues and grays inspired by nature in recent years, and Slatescape is a beautiful expression of that trend.”

For 2019, Royal has added several new trending colours in shades of gray, blue and brown to its siding portfolio:

  • Celect Cellular Composite Siding - Castle Stone and Coastline
  • Royal Vinyl - Urban Bronze and Rockslide

Royal Building Products will unveil the new colours, as well as several new products at the 2019 International Builders Show in Las Vegas. To request images or information in advance of the event, please email
