One of the most important parts of your roof is the color. An aesthetic choice, can influence the curb appeal and value of your home. It can get tricky finding the right one, as potential choices can fail in practice.
Learn how to find the best options with CQ Construction and Roofing, your trusted residential roofing company.
1. Blend the Rest of Your Home
When choosing the right color for your roof, determine if you want to contrast, complement or match the existing design theme of your home. This can influence the right color to pick for your roof. Contrast can highlight both your roof and your home; complement can emphasize the home even with a different color; and match means it will fit your home’s style. No matter what you choose, always pick a color that can work best under any circumstance and don’t settle for less.
2. Check the Lighting
The light can be a tricky manipulator for your color options. Certain materials and designs look good in catalogs and direct sunlight, until they’re put under shade. This can ruin your new roof construction, since the color only works under the right circumstance. Remember to check the color under both sun and shade before choosing.
3. Look at the Environment
Try to get inspiration from your area. The color you want most can come from the choices made by your neighbors. Another approach is to “mirror” the prevailing climate; for example, brighter colors are apt for warmer areas, while cooler, softer colors fit colder regions.
4. Suit Your Tastes
The most important part of any roof installation is that the color should be what you want. While meeting all the criteria is important, make sure you are happy with your choice.
