Metal Roofing: How to Choose the Right Color

Posted on August 27th, 2015 by Applied Roofing Services

Metal roofing offers a variety of benefits. One of the most popular benefits is the ability to choose a specific color for the roof. When quality paint is used, almost any color can be added and applied to the roof to create a unique look to any building. Applied Roofing Services specialists can help you choose the right color for your home or business by:

  1. Look at the Design of Your Home
    The first step in choosing a color is to look at the design of your home and the slope of the roof. You will want to choose a color that compliments other colors and concepts used in the exterior d├ęcor of the building. The slope of the roof will also play a role in how the color is viewed from the ground.

  2. Color Trends in Your Neighborhood
    If you live in a neighborhood where many of the homes are similar, you may want to choose a color that complements other roofs in the neighborhood. You don’t have to choose the same color, but you can vary the shade to a great degree, allowing your home or building to stand out from the others.

  3. Color and Energy Efficiency
    Darker colors tend to absorb heat. Lighter colors reflect sunlight and heat and will prevent the interior of the home from becoming too hot or uncomfortable. The staff at Applied Roofing Services can explain the concepts of color and energy efficiency.

  4. Commercial or Residential
    The purpose of the building will also play a role in what color is chosen. For a home, colors that complement the exterior of the home are often the first choice. If you are choosing a color for a business, you may want to choose a bolder color or one that appears in the company’s logo or brand.
