The color scheme of your roofing materials can enhance the overall appeal of your exterior. Picking the right one for your shingles, however, can be difficult, especially with the variety of options available in the market.
Roofing Solutions, your premier roofing contractor, shares some tips in choosing the perfect roof color for your home.
- Dark or Light Roof Colors
Heat is one of the major concern when it comes to roofing. The plywood sheathing under the black shingles, according to a federally funded study, is 10 degrees warmer than an identical white shingled roof. On the other hand, gray and brown shingles hardly make any difference. We suggest picking the color that can enhance energy efficiency in your home.
- Complementary Color Options
Compare the paint color of your exteriors to your roofing or shingle sample. It is important that the color of your roof complement the color of your walls. Avoid using monotonous or overpowering shades. Pick the tint that can give harmony to your living space.
Many roofing companies provide roofing material samples to homeowners. Place them in a well-lit and shaded area, respectively. This enables you to figure out which color works well in any lighting condition.
- Exterior Paint
You may choose a simpler shingle color when the rest of your home has several paint colors. This can avoid the unflattering mix of hues in your home. In contrast, you may pick vivid shades for your roofing when it only showcases a few color blends.
