Curb Appeal: Tips for Determining the Right Color for Your Roof

Have you been getting all of your outdoor projects done on time this summer? If so, we have one more project to add to that list of yours before the weather cools down for the fall!

If you want to bring additional value to your property, consider changing your home’s overall look and paint your roof. If your roof is still in good condition, you don’t have to worry about replacing the whole roof. You can replace the shingles and add color for a new look. Exterior colors that complement each other will boost your homes ROI, so make sure your shingles complement your siding. Your roof’s color and design are important elements to the general appearance of your home. Here is what you should consider before taking on the task:

Amount of Color
If your siding is busy with multicolor brick or multiple paint colors, you’ll want to stick to a simple color for your shingles. If your home is more monotone, opt for a vivid shingle colors that will give your home some flare.

Color and Lighting
Put the colors you are considering for your roof in sunlight and in shade before you make a final decision. It’s important to know what the colors will look like in all types of lighting. Put your samples where your siding colors meet the roof in both sun and shade.

Color and Climate
Choose a shingle color that will help you save energy. Your roof color can affect temperature in your attic by 20-40 degrees. Light colored shingles will reflect sunlight and keep the temperature down in your home, while darker shingles will absorb heat and help homes in cold climates stay warm.

Knowing how to choose color for your roof will help you avoid constant repairs and replacement. Let us inspect your roof to ensure that it is in good shape prior to your paint job. Request a quote on our website today!
