Choosing a color of your Northern Virginia roofing is one of the most important decisions you’ll make for this home improvement project. After all, you have to live with your choice for the next few decades. Peak Roofing Contractors can help you decide which color will suit your style needs. Here are some tips on selecting your roofing color easily:
- Avoid loud colors – If you can’t decide on the color, choose something neutral, dark blue, or somber gray. Darker shades sometimes only work for certain architectural styles. For example, Ranch styles look great with earthy brown shingles, while Mediterranean or Spanish architecture look best with red clay tile roofing.
- Consider permanent exterior components – Homeowners do not usually paint brick, stone, or masonry. This means that your color choice should match with these permanent components. We recommend choosing a brown roof for something analogous with the brickwork. You can also choose a contrasting color like blue.
- Choose a darker color than the body of your house – This allows some flexibility on the color choice, especially if you’re planning to replace or repaint the siding at the same time. Use complementary combinations like pale blue-green siding with a blue roof. You can also try something with more contrast, like cream white siding with dark brown Virginia roofing.
- Use online tools – The great thing about choosing your roofing is the availability of easy-to-use online tools to try different styles on. GAF, for instance, has their own Virtual Home Remodeler that lets users try on different color combinations for their roof, siding, and other exterior components. By using these tools, you also have the assurance that your exact chosen colors will be available.
