How to Choose the Best Roof Color for Your Home

Choosing the best roof color for your home can be a daunting task. At Bone Dry Roofing – West, we understand how difficult this decision can be. This guide will show you the factors to consider to find the roof color suitable for your home.

Complement and Contrast

Choose a color palette that lets your roof complement its siding and trim. You can use brown or tan for light-colored houses. Alternatively, you can use light gray or white if you have dark-colored siding, like navy blue or black. The most important factor to consider when selecting a roof color is how it will look with the rest of your home.

Your Local Area

The local environment is a factor in making your home’s roof and aesthetics stand out. If you live in a rural area, choose a color that blends in with the natural surroundings, like green, brown or tan. On the other hand, urban houses can benefit from bold colors, like light gray roofs. If you need a guide, you can consult your HOA about the color styling and schemes used in your local area. You can also take photos of homes with similar architecture as yours as a reference.

Residential Architecture

Your home’s architecture is a factor when choosing roof colors. If your house has an eclectic or modern look, opt for something bright and bold to make it stand out. Alternatively, homes with classic architecture can use shades like black, gray or brown that won’t overwhelm the rest of the exterior design.
