Apart from functionality, your windows are also keys to your home’s overall design. They provide a stunning backdrop for your interior and create a cohesive look for your exterior. For them to achieve these aspects, however, they need to blend well with certain components of your home. This includes your roof. Pritchett Bros, your premier general contractor, shares some tips:
Choose the Right Style
One of the basic exterior design principles states that it’s important to balance shapes with symmetry. A good way to do this is to base on your roof’s material and slope. If you have a slightly pitched metal roof, for instance, then sliding and casement windows are your best choices. Their sleek frames combined with the roof’s neat lines can highlight your home’s aesthetics. Meanwhile, double-hung windows are excellent for steeper roofs, especially if you’re installing units on your gables or dormers. You can match them with specialty windows for a well-proportioned exterior.
Decide On The Visual Effect You Like
Exterior color palettes consist of a field color and two accent colors, one for the trim of the home and one for the door and window frames. As a dominant part of your exterior, your roof serves as your field color for your scheme. Choose a frame color for your replacement windows that contrasts with your roof to make it stand out. For example, light-colored roofs paired with dark trims can create a crisp, dramatic effect. If you want a subtle appearance, then select a shade slightly lighter than your roof.
When you’re still unsure of your choices, take cues from neighboring homes. You can also visit your local home improvement center for pre-selected color palettes, saving you time and effort.
