What Is The Ideal Roof Colour For My Home?


How did you select your existing roof colour? Did you choose it by considering the colours of your exterior walls?  With the many brick and roof colour combinations, changing a roof colour can be so challenging.

Many factors affect how you should select the colour of your roof. The climatic condition of your location is one of them. Some roof colours help to regulate the atmosphere in your house minimising the use of air conditions especially when it is too hot. Below are ideas for roof and gutter colour combinations.


What are the best colours for painted homes?


There are various paint colours available depending on your roof material. Choosing your roof colour should, therefore, be the first thing if you are painting your house.

You can then select your wall colour. However, don’t be tempted to use the same colour of your roof with that of your wall. Try to experiment your wall with different colours. Roof colour schemes work only if you use different colours of the roof and the wall so long as they match.


What roof colour should you choose for a brick home?


Would you like to make your home unique? Don’t select a roof colour because others are using it. There are different colorbond roof colour schemes. Look at your bricks keenly and identify their main colour. You can then try to find hints of that colour for your roofing material. You can also look for a stylish slate grey containing a hint of your brick colour. If your roof is a powder coated metal roof, you have many options to choose from. The most important thing is your hint of colour to tie with the two elements well.


The details

Most colour consultants would advise you to match gutters and roof colours. Details such as fascia, downpipes, eves and gutters make much difference. Colour consultants always choose a close colour and paint the downpipes using the exact colour to make them camouflaged.


How to avoid a hot tin roof

Your roof will be the first part to absorb heat from the sun, and that affects the overall temperature in your house. The colour of your roof is therefore essential in controlling the temperature of your home.

You should, therefore, choose light colours because they are reflective. Your roof should also be insulated to protect it against cold and heat.
