How to choose the right roof color

Getting a new roof on your house can be a pretty exciting experience. Getting extra protection is great, but beyond that, a new roof can also help you get a new look for your house. One of the best ways to do this is by getting a new color for your replacement roof.

There are many things that you should consider before you pick your style and color. The tile and shingle manufacturers in our modern, business-driven world provide more options than you’ll ever have time to choose from.

Work With the Shutters

Shutter colors are easy to change, but once you find one you like, you should get a roof that compliments it. If your shutters and siding contrast one another, you can use a roof color matching the shutters to tie everything together.

Emphasize Your Features

Bay windows, stone walls, wrap-around porches, and other features are usually the best part of a home exterior. You should do your best to emphasize these elements.

Choosing a roof color that compliments and emphasizes these colors is a great move for the entire look of your home. If you want to draw more attention to your covered porch, choose a roof color that contrasts the wood or paint of that area.

If you use a color that’s too similar, the two elements will just blend in with one another instead of emphasizing the porch. In the same way, you can use roof colors that contrast your window trim if you really wanna see your windows pop out.

A stone wall can add some character to your home, so don’t let a patterned roof draw the attention away from it. If you choose a darker color for your roof, you’ll be able to complement the stone wall while still shining the spotlight on it.
