Choosing an exterior color scheme is one of the biggest home improvement decisions you’ll ever make. It will likely take years before you consider changing those colors again so you need to make sure that you make the right choice. But where do you start? Top roof repair and replacement contractor CQ Construction & Roofing shares a few tips:
1. Understand Your Home
Roofing and siding colors have to also match the architectural style of your home. For example, if you have a Spanish-style home, it’s hard to get away with blues or greens on your siding when you have a terra cotta-colored tile roof. Instead, opt for siding in warmer, lighter colors, like beiges and creams.
2. Stick With the Basics
Talk to your roofing contractor during a roof inspection about general color guidelines to coordinate your home’s exterior palette. If you have a country home with red brick walls, for instance, you can’t go wrong with brown, dark gray or black asphalt shingles, or you can go for a monochrome color scheme with a dark gray roof and a lighter shade of gray for your siding. Typically though, a dark-colored roof is paired with a lighter siding color and vice versa.
3. Check Out Your Neighborhood
Your home has to work with the rest of the properties around you, whether or not you live in an area governed by a homeowners’ association, so it’s always a good idea to check out your neighborhood. This will also give you the opportunity to approach your home from a distance so you’ll know what your guests see as they arrive at your property.
Take note of color schemes you like, but keep in mind that you don’t have to pick out the same roof and siding colors. Rather, consider what will complement your neighbors’ homes but will still make your property stand out.
