When you’ve made the decision to have a new roof installed on your home, one of the things you might be worried about is whether or not it will match your home’s exterior.
If you choose the wrong color for your roof, it could potentially clash with your home’s siding and make the exterior of your home unsightly.
To keep this from happening, we ask that you check out these few tips that will help you match your new roof color with your home’s exterior.
Match the exterior, but not too closely
If you have a home with a gray exterior, you might be tempted to pick out a roof that’s also gray. In your mind, you may think the two colors will be a match made in heaven, but it nothing could be further from the truth.
It is suggested to steer clear of picking a roof color that matches your home’s exterior too closely as it will actually make the roof and home exterior blend with one another.
Instead, you should choose a color that complements the color of your home without clashing with it.
Choose a brighter color to stand out
Does the outside of your home look a little boring? If so, there are many ways you can add pop without painting it some wild color.
If your home is painted a neutral color that makes it look dull, you can choose a roof with a burst of color to spice it up without going over the top. Even though the roof color and siding won’t be considered your typical match, they’ll play well off one another and turn the heads of everyone who passes by your home.
Consider using contrasting colors
While you want to be careful about choosing roof and exterior colors that contrast too much, you’re more than welcome to have some fun with the colors you select.
While a brown roof might not seem like it would pair well with a light green exterior, the two will actually offer just enough contrast to match nicely. You can also pair a green or gray roof with a bright yellow exterior to create the right amount of contrast.
You should work with an experienced roofing contractor if you take this approach to make sure you create the desired contrasting effect.
