Choosing the right color for your roof replacement may be easier said than done. You need to choose a hue that will complement the other components of your home’s exterior, which can be challenging.
Your roof covers about 40% of the outside of your home. This is a hugely significant chunk, which makes choosing colors all the more daunting. As a fully certified GAF Master Elite® contractor, Tango & Gatti has extensive experience with helping homeowners choose the best colors for their roofs. Here are a few tried and tested design concepts to help you make your decision.
You want a roof that goes well with the rest of your home and balances out the details of other fixtures such as your siding and gutters. When focusing on the roof, making sure that neighboring elements are well-taken cared of is equally important. Consider investing in siding and gutter repair before any major roofing project to give you a cleaner canvas to work on.
You want your roof to provide enough contrast with other elements without being too empowering. Take color pairing inspiration from your neighbors. Choosing your own unique colors is important, but taking a look at neighbor’s homes can give you some ideas.
In our experience as a roofing company, these pairs work extremely well together.
Red siding – Dark colors such as gray, brown or even black.
White siding – White goes well with vibrant and striking hues of brown, green, gray, blue and red, and is a great contrast to black.
Beige siding – Increasing the saturation but staying within the same hue works with beige, which means darker browns and greens make a good match.
Using Color Blends
Never pair a patterned tie with a patterned shirt. It’s a common piece of fashion advice that works with roofing as well. If you’re choosing one of GAF Timberline’s Ultra HD® asphalt shingles with blended tones, you want to pair them with a much simpler siding pattern.
On the other hand, a more complex siding pattern such as an intricately colored stone-front brick wall is better paired with non-blended and uniformly colored shingles.
