New roofs are a major investment so it’s important to get them right the first time, including their color. But how do you choose a roofing color to begin with? There’s just so many and, honestly, they all look good! Don’t worry. Top Michigan roofing contractor NorthWest Construction has you covered, sharing these tips to help you get started:
- Know Your Home’s Style – Make sure the color you choose matches your home’s architectural style. For instance, a Spanish-style home will look out of place with green or blue shingles. Instead, they are great with browns, reds and oranges.
- How Long Are You Staying In Your Home? – Are you staying long-term or is a sale a part of your future plan? It’s a good idea then to go for a neutral color that will make your home look current. Down the line, this may also simplify roof repair jobs as it may be easier matching neutral-colored roofing materials.
- Consider Your Neighborhood – If you live in an area run by a neighborhood association, check to see if there are any rules in place for roofing colors. If there are none, take a look at the rest of the homes on your street. You may want to set yourself apart but a portion of your home’s curb appeal also lies in how well you complement other properties near you. Make sure you stand out for the right reasons and not like a sore thumb.
