The color of your roof plays a big role in your home’s curb appeal. That’s why it’s important to consider not just the performance of a roofing material but also whether it will complement the existing components of your home’s exterior.
In today’s post, Tango & Gatti, your trusted roofing and gutter repair contractor, discusses the key factors you should consider when selecting a roof color.
Do you live in a climate that experiences hot summers? Darker colors tend to absorb heat, thus making the home warmer. Light colors, on the other hand, reflect light, thus making a house relatively cooler, which is a benefit in hot climates. Think about your top priorities when it comes to roof replacement. If energy efficiency is one of them, then you may want to choose a lighter color for your roof.
Of course, you should also take into account the other components of your home’s exterior, such as your siding. Houses featuring earthy-colored exterior walls look great with creamy-colored roofs. Bright colored houses would benefit from a contrasting color roof.
You’ll want to get the opinion of a pro at your roofing company to determine the most ideal roof color for your home. Bring samples of your desired colors and make sure you take their opinion into account when making a choice.
