Thoughts about Choosing a Roof Color

There are many different options when choosing a roof color when installing a new roof on your home. It can depend on the material of roofing options you choose as well. There are so many options of colors in tile roofing, shingle roofing, and even flat roofing. These are different things you should think about when choosing a roof color.

Choosing a Roof Color

New homes are attractive to buyers, but older homes can be attractive as well especially if there is a new roof. Thinking about the color of your new roof in regards to resale value can be very important. The value of your home can increase exponentially when installing a new roof, so choose the color of your roof wisely.

Why does color matter? Think about buying a new home yourself. You have classic colors such as black and grey. There will likely be many of those colored roofs in the neighborhood. Do you want your home to stick out like a sore thumb? Is the style of your house traditional or unique? This weighs in on the color of the roof you choose.

You also want it to complement the style of the home. Whether the house has a certain color siding, or concrete, it could be nice to match it somewhat. Or even within the same color scheme. The point is to think about what future home buyers will be thinking of as they view your home.

Another important factor to consider is that we’re in a very warm environment. Energy efficiency is key here. When you choose a roof color that is “green” or more energy efficient, it can help to attract buyers. Lighter colors are more energy efficient because they will reflect more heat away from the house than darker colors will. When you choose a darker color, it absorbs the heat, making the AC run more.
