Choosing The Right Color For Your New Roof – A Decision Not To Be Taken Lightly
Roof replacement is one of the most important investments you can make as a homeowner. Not only does your roof protect your property from harsh weather conditions, it is also an important factor in your home’s overall aesthetic. Even though we here at Storm Group Roofing spend a lot of time talking about the durability and functional aspects of different roof types, your roofing color is the feature you will likely notice every day.
Before committing to a roofing material, take some time to find the perfect color of asphalt shingles for your home. Remember: you will likely be looking at this same roof for many years so you’ll want to get it right the first time. Here are some guidelines to help ensure that you will find the perfect color for your roof replacement:
- Ask Your Local Roofing Company: Why not get a professional opinion? Ask a roofing contractor their thoughts on color selection. They have likely seen it all and can provide you with the best options to match your vision.
- Take a Look at Your Home’s Exterior: What color is the house siding and trim and what color would compliment those best. If you plan to install new siding in the near future, be sure to understand which colors will look best with your new roof. Depending on your home’s shape and architecture, blending multiple colors on your roof might be a fantastic option as well.
- Visit Roofing Websites: Many roofing manufacturers have apps on their websites that allow users to take a photo of their home and see what it would look like with different colored roofing. Try Owens Corning’s DESIGN EyeQ software and see for yourself!
- Look Around the Neighborhood: Find a color that compliments the other roofs and homes in your neighborhood. This factor can be especially important when the time comes to sell your home.
