It’s exciting to choose a new roof color. But, homeowners are often concerned whether they’re making the right choice. After all, who would want to have their roof completely painted over again?
Pritchett Bros, leaders in the roofing industry, created an easy two-step process for figuring out the best color for your roof.
Trust in the Three C’s
Coordination, contrast and complement are the three C’s in making your roof color work. You should coordinate the colors based on the current exterior of your landscape or location, your siding and the windows of your house. Otherwise, your home will stick out like a sore thumb or blend in so well that it’s hard to tell it apart from the backdrop.
That’s where the second C comes in: contrast. A good contrast of colors is eye catching for the passersby or guests. For example, your home exterior has neutral colors while your roof has a bolder hue.
To make things more attractive, incorporate the third C: complement. You can match your new replacement windows or your door, which creates a more uniform, clean look for your home.
