When you buy your new roof, you’ll have a lot of factors to consider. These include materials, contractors, warranties, integrated solar systems and more. Once you’ve set your mind, it’s time to choose a style and color. Finding one that suits your taste, your home’s architecture and the overall look of your neighborhood is no easy task.
Fortunately, you can follow these helpful tips to get a timeless roof style.
Before deciding, find out if there are rules about the kind of roof you can install. Some complexes and homeowners’ associations have rules about both color and style. It’s always a good idea to touch base with your neighbors and explore. Do you want your roof choice to complement the neighborhood look? Or, do you want your home to stand out with alternative shingle styles and unique colors? Answer these questions before settling on a style.
Your shingle style and color should blend well with the other style elements of your home. Does your home have bricks or siding? Is it painted? If so, what color? Is it a rustic design that might call for a rugged wood-shake shingle, or is it a modern design that coordinates well with a clean, bold color statement? Remember, the roof that looks great on a Victorian might not work on a sprawling ranch. Consult your roofer for the right combination of colors to achieve a timeless look.
Great information on roof styles and color options are available with roofing companies. In fact, you can start with the GAF Style Guide to help you find color and style inspirations. Then, use the GAF Virtual Home Remodeler to see what mixtures of roof, siding and windows work well. Finally, look at actual shingle samples as well. You can find them at home improvement retailers, or you can ask your contractor.
