A roof is one of those purchases you only make a few times in a lifetime, so you must take extra consideration into not only the type of roof but color of it as well. If you want your roof to stand out, then consider more than just picking an uncommon color. There are other ways to draw attention to your roof, which will be covered in this article.
Choose Contrasting Colors for Your Soffit and Fascia
You don’t always have to change the roof color to make it stand out. An indirect way to draw attention to your roof is to choose contrasting colors for your soffit and fascia.
Paint Your Soffits a Different Color than Your Siding
Many homes use the same color for their soffits and siding. To indirectly make your roof stand out, paint your soffits a different color than your siding.
Pick a Roof Color than Complements What’s Permanent
If you’re more interested in changing the color of your roof to make it stand out, then consider picking a roof color that complements permanent features of the house. Examples of permanent elements are the chimney and brick facades.
Check with the HOA First
Before spending the money on renovating your house’s exterior, check the homeowner’s association guidelines to make sure the change you want to make is allowed. Sometimes the homeowner’s association has a designated color scheme residents in the neighborhood must abide by. If you live in a neighborhood without an HOA, then you’re likely free to be as creative as you want.
You’re not limited to just changing the roof’s color when you want to make it stand out. Look at other structures of the house, such as the soffit, fascia, and siding. Think about which color schemes you can use to make your roof the focal point of your home.
Also check the homeowner’s associations guidelines before changing your house’s exterior design. They may not allow a color you want. Whether it’s the roof or another structure being changed to a different color, you can make it stand out by wisely choosing your color schemes.
