Replacing the roof on your home is one of the largest investments you will ever make on your property. It is also a long-term investment, as the roof may last anywhere from 20 to 50 years or longer, depending upon the type of material that is used. That is why it is important for you to choose a color that is going to complement the home and overall property.
Some people have a real struggle with choosing a color scheme that is going to work best on their property. They recognize that making the right choice is going to boost the curb appeal and property value considerably. On the other hand, making the wrong choice of roof shingle color is going to cause an eyesore that will be a frustration for decades. Here are a few considerations that will help you to get pointed in the right direction.
One of the best places to start is whether to choose a dark color or a light color. This is not only important as far as looks are concerned, it is also going to make a difference in the comfort of your home as well. Dark colors are going to absorb the heat, resulting in a warmer home. This could be an expensive choice in the warmer weather.
Some features of your home are going to be able to be changed easily, such as the color of the shutters or the woodwork on the home. The primary color of the home, regardless of whether it is brick, stone or siding is there for the long term. Make sure that you match the color of the roof shingle to the more permanent color of the home.
Try not to match the color of the home so perfectly that it becomes monotone. You want the roof to pop at least a little bit what it comes to complementing the color of the home. If you choose a roof shingle color that is too close to the primary color of the house, it is likely to be boring.
Take the time to look at the color of the roof and get plenty of samples. Check it in the morning, in the afternoon and in the evening. Be sure that it looks good at all times of the day.
These are a few considerations for choosing the right roof shingle color for your home. In the end, it is a choice that you need to be happy with, and that is the most important factor to consider.
