A new roof is a fresh start for your home. And the most exciting part about it is choosing a fresh exterior roof color. It could be both overwhelming and frustrating to get the perfect color scheme, because after all, who would want the hassle of redoing their roof color?
There are two color schemes you can choose from — the monotone color scheme and the blended color scheme. Valley Vista Construction, the leading roof repair service company, discusses when to use either in choosing your exterior roof color.
For the Monotone Color Scheme
The monotone color scheme means it only contains a single solid color for your roof. It won’t be mixed with other color variations in the same color spectrum. This color scheme works best for dark colored roofs such as deep green and gray. The dark blue shingles also look better without other colors clashing with their elegant appeal.
For the Blended Color Scheme
With the blended color scheme, there are about two or three shingle colors on your roof. Light tones are better when varied into different hues, like brown shingles mixed with rust and bronze colored shingles. This color scheme also welcomes other color combinations such as white and grey tones. You can trust a roof and gutter repair service company like Valley Vista Construction to assist you in picking the right roof color blends.
Coordinating Siding and Roof Components
When choosing the right shingle colors, you have to consider your existing exterior components, such as the siding, window frame and others. They have to contrast in an appealing way with your new roof color. Otherwise, your home would look plain and flat.
Another component you should consider is the rain gutters. You simply have to coordinate with your gutter contractor about the color changes your gutters would have to undergo to match your roof.
