Color coordinating your siding with your roof replacement is perhaps one of the tougher parts of any construction project, particularly for homeowners with no experience or skills in design. Siding and roofing products come in so many different styles and colors that finding a combination that works with not only each other but also work with your home’s overall style is definitely challenging. Add to that the significant costs of roof replacement projects, and you have a difficult decision to make.
Let the roofing professionals at Masters Roofing help you out with these simple tips in matching roofing and siding colors. This guide doesn’t have to be followed right down to the T. Instead, use them as a springboard to get your project started.
Understanding your home’s existing style is always a good place to begin. Victorian homes are classic, traditional yet elegant and intricate patterns suit their aesthetic incredibly well. Modern contemporary homes completely forego colors and patterns in favor of clean minimalistic simplicity. Color palettes for these styles are also wildly varied, but only enough to narrow down your choices to a much more manageable list.
For any roofing installation, contrasting patterns is a concept shared in almost all home styles. Laminated three-tab shingles can give texture and depth to your roofing and would work against a flat-colored siding. On the other hand, wood grain from wood siding, or vinyl textured to look like wood, is a timeless classic that can fit into almost any style. This means you want a roofing pattern that doesn’t distract against it, that’s why solidly colored sheet metal roofing with simple features goes well with it.
Black and White
White is a reliable color and a staple of most modern homes. It’s also a highly efficient color as it reflects light and heat better than any other color, making it a great choice for your roofing products. Unfortunately, it’s a little tough to coordinate white with other colors, as its intrinsic brightness makes for an odd color palette. One great color that works with white roofing is black, but many homeowners shy away from this color as it’s not very energy-efficient. Instead, choose stone gray, slate-blue, or even charcoal. This dark contrast is the perfect balance to white’s intensity.
