Choose a colour scheme
A great way to narrow down the many choices when painting your roof is to choose a colour scheme. This may be easier said than done as you are unsure where to start however start by eliminating the colours you know you don’t wish to use. For example, you may know you want your roof to be a light colour therefore eliminate all medium and dark toned shades to narrow down your options.
Consider the overall appearance of your home
Consider the overall appearance of your home. If you are looking to give your home a modern look and feel, then shades of charcoal and grey work well while if your home is in a rural area and has a country look and feel then shades of green and cream are suitable.
Do you want your roof to complement existing colours around your home?
When choosing a colour to have your roof painted, it’s recommended to consider the existing colours around your home. If you want your roof to complement existing colours then consider the colour of your gutters, external walls and doors, fences, driveway and plants and flowers.
Do you want your roof to be a focal point?
If you want your roof to be a focal point when looking at your home, choose a colour that contrasts with existing colours around your home. A colour wheel is a great place to look for contrasting colours that work well together.
Have a visual of your chosen colour
Most of us are visuals meaning we need to see something to get the best understanding. Once narrowing down your choices, pay attention to other homes when out for a walk or drive for inspiration on how the colour looks.
