Your roof’s color affects more than just your home’s curb appeal. It also contributes to its overall energy efficiency. While having so many options to choose from is a blessing, it can also be a curse because it makes it all too easy to make mistakes.
To pick the most suitable roofing color for your property, use these practical tips from Skyline Roofing Company:
Look at the Big Picture
The beauty of your roof doesn’t rely on its appearance alone; it depends on the interplay between its colors and the rest of your home exterior. Make sure it can coexist with your siding, hardscaping, landscaping, trim, windows and doors, especially those likely to stick around for many more years.
Think About Tradition
If you live in a historic or conservative neighborhood, your roof’s color may have already been predetermined. Check out the roof colors of homes of the same style as yours, and draw inspiration from them.
Any good roofing company would say that using a trendy color can help make your roof stand out and captivate the imagination. Many exterior design experts would recommend intriguing hues, such as deep sea blue and cardinal red. Of course, using a roof color not traditionally associated with your home’s style is only palatable if your neighborhood is on the contemporary or eclectic side.
View Colors in All Lighting
Light, or the lack thereof, affects the way the eye perceives colors. This is why hues slightly change in appearance from day to night, spring to winter. To crown your home with roofing materials that look great whatever time of the day or year, check product samples in the sun and in the shade.
Visualize With Tools
When narrowing your options down, utilize roof planning apps more, and rely on your imagination less. Although colors when viewed from the computer look different in real life, tools, like GAF’s Virtual Home Remodeler, can help you make a sound choice.
