It’s easy to learn how to pick a roof color that will give you the best value for your investment. The right roof can protect your home in a way that expresses your personal style, boosts curb appeal, and potentially lowers your cost to heat and cool your home.
By keeping in mind just a few considerations, you can make sure that your roof contractor installs a roof color you will love for years.
How Do I Pick a Color for My Roof?
Style is everything when it comes to boosting your home’s value, and your roof shingles are a big part of what prospective buyers see when they pull up to your home for the first time.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as you’re choosing the right color for your roof that expresses your style:
- Consider current home colors. Find a color that fits into your current color scheme without overwhelming it or seeming out of place. What will complement foundational bricks, siding, and shutters?
- Think about future changes or upgrades on the horizon. Do you plan to repaint the front door and window shutters? Are you going to update the brick front or have the house painted? Use the paint samples you are considering for those products and match them to roof shingle color options to find a combination that works well together.
- Assess the cost versus the return on your investment. Your roof accounts for about 40 percent of the exterior of the home in most cases, and putting on a new roof is a big financial investment already. If your first choice in roof shingle is significantly more expensive than other options, it may not be worth it when it comes to overall home value.
- See the roof shingle in person. Computer monitors do not always convey the color of the roof shingle well. It’s important to get a real sample so you can compare it to your house siding, shutters, and door in real life.
