It’s not so simple as it sounds when it comes to choosing a color for your roof and house. It can sometimes be challenging for some and time-consuming for others. If you wish to get a color for your roof, then consider these factors.

  1. Select Carefully Between Light and Dark Roof Colors – Regards to heat retention properties, it is important to choose carefully while selecting either light or dark color for the roof. Depending on where you live, choosing black shingled roof can be warmer around 10 to 30degrees compared to light colored roofs. However, if you choose a brown and gray means the heat retention is lesser. Moreover, choosing a darker shade allows the snow and ice to melt faster.
  2. Compare the Exterior Color – Considering roofing materials is crucial during the time of selecting a color for your roof. The roofing material and the color need to match with one another in order to look eye-catching.
  3. Select the Shingle Color Based on the Brick – Another factor to consider is to ensure the roof color matches with the color of the brick.
  4. Pick a Shingle Color Either to Tone Down or Spruce Up your Home – Another important factor to consider is to choose the roof color that matches with your house. For instance; if your house has multiple paint colors then you may want to tone down the color of the shingle. Or else, you can choose a vivid color in order to match the monotone feel of the house.
