6 Tips for Picking the Right Color for Your Roof

  1. 1. 6 Tips for Picking the Right Color for Your Roof There’s a lot more to consider than you might think!
  2. 2. Why does your roof color matter?  Your roof color matters more than you might think. It can affect the overall style of your home and how well it fits in with your neighbors’ homes.  Picking the right color can be tricky because there are several things to consider. Make sure you go over all of the tips in the next six slides before moving forward with a certain color.  Remember, you’ll have to live with this color for the next 30-50 years!
  3. 3. 1. See it in the sun and shade.  Colors look different in the sun and shade. Take your roof shingle color sample and see if you like how it looks in both the sun and shade.
  4. 4. 2. Compare it to paint colors.  Compare your color sample to the paint colors on the outside of your home. If you’re going to repaint your home, make sure you compare the sample to the new paint colors.
  5. 5. 3. Use complementary colors.  Don’t pick a color that perfectly matches the siding or brick of your home. You’ll end up with a monotone, boring color scheme. Pick a color that will complement the colors of your house and not match them.
  6. 6. 4. Don’t make it too bold.  If your house has multi-color brick or multiple paint colors, choose a shingle color that’s toned down. However, if your home has more of a plain, monotone feel, brighten it up with a vivid roof color.
  7. 7. 5. Consider the climate.  Lighter shingles reflect the sun and keep your home’s temperature down. Darker shingles absorb heat and help homes in colder climates stay warm. Keep this in mind when you’re picking a color!
  8. 8. 6.Remember brick is permanent.  Paint and shutter colors can always be changed, but brick is permanent. Compare your sample colors to brick first, then compare them to siding or paint colors.
  9. 9. Be happy with your color choice!  After following all these tips, remember that you should simply be happy with the color you pick. You should love it, and not just tolerate it.  Whether it’s terne stainless steel or copper, find a roofing shingle with a color that fits the style of your home. The type of shingle you want will also affect your color options.
