Most homeowners want a roof color that matches their exterior siding as it enhances the overall look of their respective homes. Timberland Exteriors not only has a diverse selection of roofing and siding materials but we also have a wide variety of color choices. We show here how to match colors in your next roof or vinyl siding installation.
Let Your Home Style Guide You
The design style of your home can guide you toward certain colors. Let’s look at Colonial, Victorian, Federal and Gregorian homes. They look best in exterior siding colors of white, light and medium grays. Colonial yellow, Spanish tans, rich creams, slate blue and deep, rich colors will also do. For the roof, medium brown, pale green, rosy reds, vibrant gold and light to medium gray complement them.
Follow the Basic Design Rules
Design rules exist for a simple reason: they work. While going against the grain can sometimes work, the basic principles of design are almost always better followed. Timberland Exteriors suggest sticking to basics when matching roof and exterior siding colors. The following basic design rules will also help in your vinyl window installation.
Understand How Colors Work
Light colors for exterior siding and roofs make smaller homes seem larger. They also work when you want to soften the hard lines of architectural features. Medium tone colors blend with any home style and architectural feature. A darker, subtle roof color will have a dramatic effect. Dark nature-inspired roof colors make a bold style statement and complement the exterior.
Complement Various Elements
Get a more dramatic appearance with a roof color that isn’t an exact match to the exterior siding. Stay in the same color scheme of your exterior siding, but go darker for your roof. If the siding is in warm colors, choose a warm roof color.
