In your search for a new roof, you’ll quickly discover that not only are there many types of roofing, but each one comes in many different colors. This freedom is exciting to some and paralyzing to others. Why?  Unlike many home improvements, a roof is a semi-permanent choice, something you will need to live with for a while.

Consider how much of your home’s visible exterior is the roof as you plan. In some cases, more than half of what someone sees as they drive up is the roof. This realization may help you understand how critical color selection is.

If you choose a color that clashes with the rest of your home, you might dramatically limit sale prospects in the future. Also, some materials last much longer than others, adding more weight to the decision.

The beauty of roof color choice:

Today’s offerings, don’t limit your choices to black, brown, or gray. Instead, a broad palette of colors allows for a much more significant impact on your home’s overall look and feel.

There are many helpful online resources for looking at colors and designs for home exteriors. Paint companies like Behr, Sherwin Williams, and Valspar have great websites to check out. We suggest perusing these to reimagine your home’s exterior because changing your roof may inspire other changes for increased beauty and curb appeal.
