Beginner’s Guide to Choosing the Right Color for Your New Roof

Are you in the process of choosing the right color for your new roof? Don’t let it send you into a tailspin. Choosing colors for your house can seem daunting, but we have some tips that can help you get through it and end up with great results. Check out our beginner’s guide to choosing the right roof color.

#1: What Color is Your House?

One of the biggest factors in roof color is the color of your house. Whether you have siding, stone, stucco, or wood, the exterior color should help dictate the roof color. House colors in the blue, gray, yellow, or white families look great with black roof shingles. If your home is brick, you can play off the warm color with black or brown roof materials. And natural siding like wood or stone, or earth-toned paint or siding coordinate well with brown shingles. And red tile roofs look great with stucco in almost any color.

#2: Consider the Climate

Why consider the climate with your roof color choice? Because a dark roof means a hotter roof. If you live in the south, you might want to consider a cool roof color. The lighter the color of your roof, the more solar reflective it will be. This means your home will stay cooler, and you’ll use less energy on your AC in the hot summer months.

If you feel stuck when it comes to choosing the color for your new roof, we can help. Our team of professionals can evaluate your home, your needs, and your budget and make recommendations that work with all three.

Reasons You Should Avoid Surprises and Have the Roof Inspected Before Purchasing a Home

Is a roof inspection on your pre-purchase to-do list? Buying a new home is exciting, but you don’t want to damper the joy by discovering the roof needs repair or replacement. Take a look at the top ways you can avoid surprises after the closing with a roof inspection before you sign the contract.

The Weather

You can’t change the weather, but it can take a toll on a roof. When you purchase a pre-existing home, you can’t know what the roof has been through. If there was hail, high winds, or extreme conditions, there is no way for you to know unless you have the roof inspected. Knowing before you buy can save you thousands of dollars in roof repairs or replacement.

The Age of the Roof

It’s a requirement that sellers disclose issues with their home before they sell it, but they might not be aware of roof damage that’s due to age. The life expectancy of most roofs is 15-20 years. Other factors besides time can affect the condition, however. Low-quality roofing materials, poor installation, and damage from other house maintenance can impact the stability and status of the roof. A professional roof inspection can identify any issues from age before you sign off on the state of the home you’re buying.
