Using the right color combination for your roof and siding can make a huge impact on your home’s curb appeal. That’s why you should carefully select the colors for your exterior and ensure they match each other and complement your home’s overall exterior design.
Whether you’re planning a completely new look for your exterior or you’re replacing just your roof or your siding, the following tips will surely help you create a beautiful exterior.
Matching New Siding and New Roof Colors
If you’re changing both your siding and roof, you can start by creating a new color palette for your exterior. This is usually an exciting process for many homeowners, but it can also be overwhelming due to the wide array of color choices. Don’t hesitate to get advice from design professionals so that you can narrow down your options and ensure a good match. You can also take advantage of color visualizers that siding and roofing manufacturers have made available online. Although it’s still best to see the colors in person and with the kinds of light it’ll be exposed to, a visualizer tool can still be useful as it makes it easier to play around with different color combinations.
Matching a New Siding Color to Your Home’s Current Roof Color
If you’re planning for siding installation or replacement but you intend on keeping your existing roofing, there’s one basic rule that you should keep in mind: pair a warm-colored roof with a warm-colored siding, or a cool-hued roof with a cool-hued siding. So if your roof is in a shade like rusty tan or brick red, the color of your siding should be in a similar warm shade such as beige, tan or brown.
Matching a New Roof Color to Your Home’s Current Siding Color
If you are replacing your roof and you plan on keeping your current siding, it’s best to stick with the basics. Brown, gray, black and red are generally the most popular colors of roof shingles, so you might want to take your pick among these options. Ask for some samples of roofing that you can bring home so that you can hold them next to your siding. This will make it easier for you to see what classic color goes well with your siding.
