How to Choose the Best Roofing Color for Your Home
Your roof is one of the most visible components ofyour home, so when it comes to selecting the right roofing materials, shingle color, and Kingwood Roofer to install it you want to be choosy. Things like wind resistance, maintenance, and lifespan should also be taken into consideration. Here are two of the most important tips for choosing the right color roof with our many years of experience in the roofing industry.
- Match Your New Roof With Your Siding - The exterior siding of your home is usually the first thing people will notice when they look at your home so it naturally should be in balance with your roof. Unless you intend to have replacement siding installed soon by a Kingwood roofing company and want to change up the color scheme of your entire home, you should consider pairing your new roofing materials with your siding. Sidings such as cedar-wood shake, brick, or stone masonry are much busier than common lap siding and pair better with solid colored roofing materials instead of shingles that have blended colors.
- Recognize the Height of Your Home - A rule of thumb that a top Kingwood roofing company follows is that higher a home is, the darker a steep-sloped roof should be because it balances out the additional vertical dimension. A dark roof also looks more distinguished and sophisticated in the eyes of many people. You may be thinking that a dark roof will retain more heat from the sun which is why a premier Kingwood Roofing Contractor recommends GAF Timberline Cool Series for your Texas home.
- Observe Color Samples at Different Times of the Day - The daylight will have a varying effect on colors at different times of the day so if you only look at a color during the morning light it may look darker than in the afternoon. Get a few samples and compare them with your siding and other permanent parts of your home. See how the roofing samples look in the morning, afternoon, the evening sunset, and just after dark to get the best idea of how your new roof is going to compliment your home!
