Just as your interior design is a matter of your unique taste, so too is the color of the roof on your home. When you consider that your roof makes a statement to anyone driving down the road, you may want to take time to consider the visual impact of your roof.
If you’re in the midst of a roof replacement, you will want to talk to your Florida roofing contractor for advice on roof color and which may be right for you and the style of the home itself.
Because your roof is designed to last for decades you will want to put conscious thought into choosing the roof color because it will be with you for many, many years. Here are some tips from a Florida Roofing Contractor for deciding on a color for your roof shingles:
Take your time. Once the roof is on, you are stuck with the color for decades.
Ask your contractor if there is a color roof that individuals seem to gravitate toward. Just because you love pink, for example, may not make it a great color choice for your roof. Remember too, you will want a shingle that complements the rest of the homes’ exterior. Make sure you understand all of your options before making a final decision.
Look at various color shingles in real time by asking your contractor to bring some samples, lay them out on the roof and then you can walk around the home to see how you feel about the look. You will also want to take into consideration the overall feel of your neighborhood; is it a funky, modern feeling or a conservative grey shingle feel? This could figure into your decision making.
Look through home décor magazines to get a feel for the style of home you have and what an appropriate shingle color might ultimately be.
Taking your time with this very visible decision making process will save you regret down the road.
