When making improvements to their home, most people like to start with their interiors. Whether it’s updating the kitchen, converting an extra room or remodeling a bathroom, most of the attention is focused inside the home. However, if you talk to any realtor, they will be quick to tell you that improving the way your house looks from the outside is just as important. If you want to spruce up your home, you should pay very close attention to how the colors of your roofing and siding match one another.
How To Match Your Roof With Your Existing Siding
If you are looking to replace your old roof and keep your existing siding, there is one good rule to follow: stick to the classics. There’s a reason why shades of black, brown, red, and grey have remained popular since forever. These colors have stemmed from materials that builders have been using for centuries: slate, wood and clay. When in doubt, always use timeless colors that stand the test of time.
You can ask your roofing contractor to bring samples of roofing materials so you can hold them up against your siding and see if they work. When choosing colors, always keep in mind that lighter shades reflect heat, while darker shades absorb it.
How To Match Your Siding With Your Existing Roof
As for siding, one tip we can give you is this: try to pair warm roofing colors with warm siding colors, and cool roofing colors with cool siding colors. For instance, if you have a roof with a rusty red color, go with a similarly warm shade of siding such as tan, beige or light brown.
