What is the Right Roof Color For Your Home

The right roof color is the key to creating a maximum walk-up appeal and visual impact.  Most homeowners have a difficult time deciding on a color.  For one, it’s hard to imagine a different color on your home than what is already there.  It’s tough to look at small samples and see the big picture.  Secondly, you may be painting or adding siding soon, so you don’t know how it will look down the road.

Before your roofing project begins, take the time to drive through neighborhoods and pay attention to the roofs you see.  Where gray was once the usual choice, more and more homeowners are incorporating their roof into the color scheme of their home for an overall beautiful look.  You can liven up a plain looking exterior with a dark charcoal color, or pay homage to your older, historical home with a roof that complements the style it portrays.

Here are just a few examples of how you can incorporate your roof to reflect the style and architecture of your home.

  • Contemporary/Modern:  Look to colors and palettes with a metallic style that complement the architectural lines of your home.  Use a lighter color if your home has darker siding and a darker roof if your home has a lighter exterior.
  • Victorian:  Browns and bronzes revive the historical ambiance of Victorian homes and complete a finished appearance and beautiful walk-up.  Work within your siding’s color scheme for a muted but elegant look, or use brighter colors that reflect the home’s time period.
  • Cape Cod/Colonial:  Showcase the Northeast pride of our heritage homes with charcoal, slate, and dark, warm colors.  Weathered looking shingles work best for this style of home for an authentic feel.
  • Cabin:  For any lake home, coastal home, or log cabin go for tans, greens, or browns to blend nature into your home’s exterior.  For stone exteriors, reds can bring an amazing burst of color.
