How to Choose a Timeless Roof Color

There’s nothing wrong with choosing trendy colors for your roof. The problem with design trends, however, is that they tend to go out of style quickly. If you want your exterior’s design to remain up-to-date for as long as possible, it’s best to stick to classic colors, which never go out of style.

How To Choose A Timeless Roof Color

Use Classic Color Combinations 

There’s a reason why certain color combinations have withstood the test of time. It’s because they work so well. Here’s an overview of some classic color combinations: 

  • Red exterior – Dark brown, black, grey, and green
  • Light grey exterior – Grey, black, green, blue, and white
  • Beige exterior – Brown, black, grey, green, and blue
  • Brown – Grey, brown, green, and blue
  • White – The best thing about white is that it goes well with almost every color 

Here’s a pro-tip: To quickly narrow down your options, you can consult one of your local roofing companies about the colors that have been traditionally used in your home’s architectural style. 

Practical Considerations When Choosing a Roof Color

Design consistency is an important factor to take into when choosing a new color for your roof, but there are practical considerations as well. These are: 

  • Energy efficiency – The color of your roof has an impact on your home’s overall energy efficiency. Remember: the closer a color is to white on the color spectrum, the more heat it reflects, and the less electricity your HVAC system has to consume to keep indoor temperatures at a comfortable level. And the darker a shade is the more heat it absorbs, and the higher your cooling costs.
  • Local climate – Increased heat absorption can shorten your roof’s lifespan.
