Choosing the right roof color for your home is incredibly important because it’s one of the largest parts of your home’s exterior. When choosing your roof color, remember to focus on making the roof complement the rest of your exterior. You don’t want a roof that stands out because the roof is meant to be in the background. Triangle Home Exteriors, one of the leading home exterior remodeling companies in our area, gives tips to help you choose the right roof color.
Get Multiple Large Color Samples
It’s important not to base your color choice on what you see on a computer screen or on a small color chip. The screen can distort the colors and the small color chip might not be an accurate representation of what the roof will look like once installed. You should get two or more large color samples and then look at these samples at different times of day. This will give you a better idea of what these shingles will look like once installed.
Aim for Some Color Variations
As one of the top roofing and siding contractors in our area, we highly recommend aiming for some slight color variations when choosing a roof color. The roof color you choose should have some natural variations in shade in order to give your roof some dimension. Roof shingles that have the exact same color will look flat once installed. Fortunately, designer shingles have this sort of color variation.
Consider Your Home’s Current Exterior
You should incorporate your new roof into your home’s current color composition. In particular, pay attention to the more permanent parts of your home’s exterior like brick or masonry. These features will be there even if you change your siding color or roof color. Every roof you install in your home should match it.
