Your roof is one of the most visible elements of your home’s exterior. Choosing the right roof color will mean the difference between standing out from the rest of the homes on your street and being a forgettable part of the landscape. Cooley Roofing gives advice on choosing the right roof color for your home.
1. Match Your Roof With Your Exterior
Complement your roof’s color with your vinyl siding in Winston-Salem, NC. Choose roof colors that don’t so match your siding as harmonize with it. This prevents your home from looking monotonous or boring. Consider the rest of your home’s exterior as well. If there are multicolor brick or stone facades or multiple colors, it’s best to go for a toned down roof color. If the rest of your exterior is simple however, going for a vivid color is best.
2. Choose Colors In The Context of Your Neighborhood
While choosing your colors, visualize how your home will look in your neighborhood. Something drastically different will clash with its surroundings, so you have to create harmony not just with your own exterior, but with the rest of the homes near you as well. In addition, certain neighborhoods require homeowners to have specific color shades and roof materials for homes. Check with your local neighborhood association.
3. Remember Energy Efficiency
As experts in roofing in Winston-Salem, NC, we suggest thinking about energy efficiency when choosing your roof color. Darker shades absorb more heat, which can lead to hotter attics and increased energy bills. On the other hand, lighter shades reflect heat. That in mind, we offer a wide variety of energy-efficient roofing materials and colors for your home. During our consultation, we’ll help you find out the best color and material choice for your home’s current situation.
4. Think About The Message You Want Your Home To Send
Different shades of color create different statements and emotions, so think about your own personal style and the message you want to send with your roof. Neutral colors like brown, blacks, creams, and clays are safe and sophisticated. Brighter and trendier colors like reds, blues, oranges, and greens are more attention grabbing and can communicate a wider range of emotions.
