No matter what kind of roof you have, it is sure to last you a long, long time. This is why picking the perfect color is so important. After all, you don’t want to be stuck with a roofing color that will eventually fall out of fashion and become an eyesore. When it comes to your roof, picking a timeless color as opposed to a trendy one should always be the way to go and, in today’s post, Chase Roofing LLC shares a few tips on how to find the perfect one for your home.
Classic Roof Colors
Timeless does not necessarily mean boring. A roofing color can stand the test of time while still being attractive and aesthetically pleasing. Even a mid-range asphalt shingle roof is expected to last for 15 years. Imagine being stuck with a tacky roof for that long.
Depending on the style of your home, you may want to ask your roofer or designer what classic color will work best with the architecture. Black, navy, grey, green and brown are all great colors that are classic colors that never fall out of style. For instance, if you have a Mediterranean home, we suggest picking a terracotta or clay color will boost the appeal of your home’s exterior.
One other thing to keep in mind when choosing a roof color is the climate you live in. Pick a dark-colored roof if you live in a cold climate because a dark roof retains heat more effectively. If you live in a hot climate, then a light-colored roof will do a better job of deflecting the heat of the sun.
