Tips for choosing the right roof color

Tips for choosing the right roof color

The right color helps curb appeal. Now it is all up to taste “same as usual” or “a little bold”. That is the choice you have to make.

Installing your roof is one of the largest investments you can make as a homeowner. You are replacing your roof because your last one lasted roughly 13 years. A Bjorkstrand Metal roofs life is warranted for 50 years NON PRO-RATED, so it’s understandable why one might have some anxiety about the decision on color. Here are two log homes the one on the left is the typical log home color combination. Looks good but lacks the boldness of the log home on the right. Both were installed by Bjorkstrand Metal Roofing.

1. Don’t rush it

This is not a decision that should be rushed – it’s okay to take some time to give it serious thought. Consider if your color choice will be what you want years down the road. When I come to your home I bring samples of various colors and we can set them up against the siding.

2. Talk with your estimator 

The individual giving you an estimate has likely overseen hundreds of roofing jobs and can speak to which colors will best compliment your home’s structure and current siding. It’s not easy to change your roofing so be sure the shingle color you have chosen does not clash with the siding and trim.

3. Go over all of the options 

There are many different and unique stone coated shingle styles and options on the market. Use your home’s architecture as a guide for whether your new shingles should be a singular color or a blend of multiple colors.

5. Examine the stone coated shingles

Examine life-size samples of your top shingle choices. Holding them up against your current shingles will allow you to see how much the new choices vary from what you currently have. We can have say two or three different choices sent to you to checkout.

6. Look around your neighborhood

What do other homes in your neighborhood have? It’s important to be sure that your selections compliment your neighborhood but you will definitely look better with a metal roof. A metal shake roof that is stone coated will make selling your home much easier down the road.

7. Know your home’s style

Evaluate your home’s style to decide what an appropriate color is and what is not. For example, a Spanish style home is going to look out of place with blue shingles. Home magazines can also be helpful in showcasing different styles of homes and the shingle colors that suit them the best. Do not worry we have 20 different colors to choose from.
