Finding the Right Color for Your Roof

Finding the Right Color for Your Roof

Your roofing contractor will tell you that one of the most important features of your roof is the color. It can help improve visual appeal of your roof and the value of your home.

Finding the Right Color for Your Roof

Thanks to our years of service here at A1 Roofing and Construction Company, we’ve found ways for homeowners to find the right color for their roof. Here are some tips:

Try Color Coordinating

Remember that no matter what paint you use over the shingles, it should blend with the entire structure. Even gorgeous roofing can look bad if it clashes with your siding and windows. Here’s a good rule of thumb: vibrant colors are great centerpieces while neutral colors are good for emphasizing said centerpieces.

Proper Use of Color Shades

A common mistake made by homeowners is that they make the roof match the walls. Doing so results in a monotonous shade that makes the structure look dull. Another involves buying several contrasting colors. While it helps the roof stand out, the clashing colors may irritate your eyes and lower your property’s curb appeal.

To fix this, it is recommended that you choose a color scheme with slight shade variations. For example, a wood finish can work with a darker color for the roof, which will give your home a rustic look.

Check the Lighting

Before you decide to plaster all those beautiful shingles on the roof, see how it looks in the daylight. High-quality materials from your roofing contractor may look good under the light, but the appearance can be different in the dark. The best kind of color is one that appeals to you in both the shade and the sunlight.
