How to Choose the Best Roofing Color for Your Home

Jun 02, 2024

When you’re in the process of investing in a roof replacement at your home, you should know just how important it is to get the color of your new roof right. So much of your home’s curb appeal is determined by your roof, so you can’t afford to decide on the wrong color. With that in mind, how should you go about choosing your roof color, then?

The good news is that your friends at Roofing Done Wright have put together a comprehensive guide that will help you determine how to choose the best roofing color for your home. What’s even better is that when the time comes for your roof replacement in Georgia or Florida, you have us to turn to, and our expert team can help you through the process of selecting the best roof color for your project.

The Goal to Have in Mind When Choosing the Best Roofing Color for Your Home

With a project as significant as a roof replacement, you’ll want to set out with clearly defined goals that you can present to the company you choose to partner with. Among those goals is sure to be something along the lines of “improve curb appeal,” and choosing the right roofing color is paramount when it comes to accomplishing that goal. What’s important to keep in mind is that to maximize the impact of your roof’s color, it should complement the look and feel of your home’s exterior while also suiting your personal tastes.

So, as you sift through your different color options, that’s the lens you should look through. Think: “Which color works best with my home’s exterior design and matches up with my preferences?”

What to Consider When You’re Trying to Choose the Best Roofing Color

There are a few key factors to keep in mind as you walk through the color selection process within your roof replacement project. We already mentioned making sure your roof color complements the exterior design of your home. In other words, consider the color of your siding, as well as the accent colors on your windows and doors. Doing so will point you in the right direction toward the perfect roof color. Lighter-colored homes (think beige/cream, light gray, etc.) blend flawlessly with darker-colored shingles (like dark brown, dark gray, green, blue, etc.). What’s helpful is that even if you can’t quite picture what your home will look like with a given roof color, your chosen roofing contractor should be able to help.

While the exterior design of your home is the big factor, there’s also the architectural style of your home to plan around. Certain home styles clash with certain roof colors, so you’ll want to strike the right balance between the two. You want the color of your shingles to complement but also contrast the architectural design of your home. If everything matches, it makes for a boring look and less curb appeal.

Finally, the last big factor to consider has to do with geography. Where do you live? Because darker roofs absorb heat, you may not want to opt for a dark-colored roof if you live in a hot climate. Rather, you may want to go with a lighter shingle color that will reflect heat. While that’s a general rule of thumb, your preferred roofing contractor will be able to further explain which specific colors will or won’t work with the climate you live in.

This company did a great job! I would definitely hire them again. Houston helped us pick out everything for our new roof and gutters. He was great. He knows a lot about the roofing business and was very helpful. Skyler was the onsite supervisor when our new roof was installed. He was also great and very knowledgeable. We are very happy with our new roof and gutters.
