Guide To Choosing The Right Roof Material And Color For Your Home


A perfect home is one that has the right combination of different design elements. For some home owners achieving this right combination can prove to be very difficult. There are just so many options available these days that narrowing it all down to a single choice seems almost impossible. The same is the case when it comes to choosing the right roofing material and color for the house. However, there are simple tricks that can not only help you save time, but also make a wise decision.

Consistent And Cohesive Theme

As far as the exterior of a house is concerned, cohesiveness and consistency are extremely important. Inside the house each room can have a different theme. However, the same approach cannot be taken for the exterior. Remember, the choice here in turn will determine how the house will look for years to come.

Nowadays, there are some excellent roof types available in different designs and colors to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the house while providing durability and consistency. Some popular options include:

Metal Roofs

Widely used in industrial buildings, metal roofs are now becoming a popular choice for modern homes. Although available in limited designs, these roofing options offer a number of benefits shared by no other type of roofing material.

Metal roofs require very little maintenance and can last for decades. They less likely to crack, break or degrade when exposed to UV or other harsh climate conditions like hail, snow, strong wind and rain. They can also withstand potential damage from nearby tree branches that may come in contact with the surface along with falling debris. Metal roofs are also less susceptible to leaks.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs are another durable solution that require little maintenance and can last longer than five decades or even more. Tile roofs are ideal for areas with sunny climates, since they provide enhanced protection against sunrays. In terms of looks, they add a unique blend of old and contemporary touch to any house, enhancing its overall aesthetic appeal.

Asphalt Shingles

A popular choice in Texas, asphalt shingles are affordable roofing solutions that provide protection against sunlight, rain and snow. They are also very easy to install and replace.

Choosing The Right Color Type

The above roofing types are available in different designs and colors. When choosing the color it is best to opt for those that go well with your brick or exterior walls and overall appearance of the house. Similar shades can be chosen or even colors that may complement the brick/walls or more. Placing shingle samples next to your home is a great way of going about finding the perfect match.
