The roof is a large part of your home’s exterior and deserves a lot of consideration of color and style when looking for a new one. Here are some tips to consider when picking the best roof color for your home.
Shingle Color Coordination
The color of your home’s siding and trim should help you decide the color of your roof. Coordinating the color of these elements will help pull the home’s exterior together. Below is a chart of the different shingle colors offered by Atlas Roofing Corporation, and the siding colors they compliment.
The Style of Your Home
The style of your home can also help lead you into a direction of what color may be best. For example, light siding goes well with a black shingle roof for a traditional look. Also, a dark siding with a dark shingle roof will lead you toward a modern style.
The Area and Climate you Live in
Depending on what climate you live in, certain shingle colors can lead to positive results. For example, if you live in a warm climate a light shingle color can deflect sunlight and keep the temperature down in a home. On the other hand, dark shingle color and absorb heat in a cold climate and keep it warmer in the home. These options can help you save money on bills in the future.
