When choosing the color of your new roof, keep the following tips in mind.

Design

The architectural style of the building to be roofed should be kept in mind. A victorian style building can look great with a metal roof, but the color should be in line with the style. If your home is very modern, you can be a little more adventurous with color

Energy Conservation

If your goal is to lower your energy bill, it can be accomplished by installing a metal roof that is light in color. Think gray, white, ivory, tan, etc. Remember: darker colors absorb heat while lighter ones reflect it.

Surrounding Area

Many neighborhoods restrict what colors residents may paint their homes. There may be a theme in your neighborhood that limits the amount of colors you may choose from, but luckily there is a full spectrum of roofing color options. Even if your neighborhood doesn’t have any restrictions, it might be a good idea to color coordinate with your neighbors so as not to stick out like a sore thumb.
