A roof replacement is a big, yet necessary, job. When the work is done, however, your home will be better protected against the elements and will have a beautiful new look thanks to your new roof. The fun part of a roof replacement project is deciding which color your new roof should be. Here are some things to consider as you weigh your options:
Homeowners Association Requirements
If you live in a neighborhood where there are restrictions on certain colors, your list of options will be limited, which may make the decision easy. Even if you don’t belong to an HOA, you may want to consider the aesthetic of your neighborhood and choose a roofing color that complements it.
Your Local Climate
Roofing colors can affect the temperature of your attic. For instance, dark roofing shingles will lead to a warmer attic, while light-colored shingles will help keep it cool. If you live in a climate that reaches extreme hot or cold temperatures, selecting the appropriate color tone for your roof can help with energy efficiency.
The Architecture of Your Home
Some roofing shingles are designed to match a certain architectural aesthetic. Opting for a stylish option that complements your home’s exterior design can work wonders for curb appeal.
Availability of Colors From the Manufacturer
Before you even start picturing in your mind what your new roof will look, determine which brand of roofing shingles are the best option for your home. Performance is important, and equipping your home with protection from the elements should be the No. 1 goal of your roof replacement. When you have a manufacturer in mind, talk to a local roofing contractor about what colors are available in your area to help narrow down your list.
