The need for a new roof presents an excellent opportunity to improve your home’s curb appeal. However, choosing the right color for this major transformation is a bit of a challenge. Here are some tips to help you choose a great color for your roof restoration.
Shingles are available in a wide range of colors. One way to find the right color is to use samples. We will provide you with samples that you can hold up against your siding. Look for a color that complements your home’s existing colors. Rest it in a window to see how it looks up close and from a distance. Look at it during different times of the day to see if you like it in the morning light as well as the late afternoon.
We will also provide you with a list of homes where we have installed shingle, along with the color selections the homeowners made. By driving past these homes, you will see how different shingles look with different colors of siding and brick exteriors. Picking the right color combination is one of the most important parts of your roof replacement.
Choosing the siding color for your home is a major decision. Here at Robbins Roofing, Inc., we will work with you to help you find the perfect color for your home. Before deciding on a color, consider if you want the roof to blend in with the home or stand out and demand attention. Complementary colors will create a monochromatic scheme while contrasting colors will bring more attention to both the roof and the siding.
Another rule of thumb to consider is the effect dark or light colors will have on the entire home. Lighter colors will make the roof seem taller and may be a good choice for shallow pitches or low roofs. Darker colors will help make a tall roof seem less overwhelming.
Of course, this is also a good time to change the entire appearance of your home. If it’s time for a fresh coat of paint or siding, you can pick out an entirely new color palette for a complete home makeover.
