If you’re planning to get a metal roof, you’ve already made a great long-term decision for your home. But you may now be faced with another important decision. Which color do you want your metal roof to be? While a seemingly simple question, the reality is that your options are nearly endless! To help you choose, we’ve compiled a few tips for choosing a metal roof color.
While the world of colors and finishes may be available to you, it’s important to remember how the sun and other weather elements will affect your roof. If you live in a warm environment, choose a light color that will protect your house from extreme heat. If your house is rather cold, even in summer, choose a darker color, which will absorb the heat, helping you to keep your home warm.
Consider The Surrounding Environment
Picture how your roof will look in conjunction with your siding, shutters, landscaping. Will you go for a monotone color palette, or add contrast? Do you want a bold roof, or one that blends? These decisions will last for a long time, and can even affect the curb appeal of your home, so choose carefully. Will you still like this decision 10 years from now?
Examine Your Color Choices in Different Lighting
Remember that the color will look quite different depending on the weather and the amount of light it gets. Don’t choose a color from the hardware store just because it looks good under fluorescent lights. Check your color under the sun, under cloudy weather, and at nighttime to get the full effect it will have.
