GAF Color Selector: Texture, Shade, & Everything in Between

While some people put a great deal of consideration in to the color and style of their roofs, others just want something that is complimentary to their home and well within the budget. In choosing a good color for your roof, wouldn’t it be nice to know how certain shades would look on your home? Hiring a designer is one option. Another is trying GAF’s virtual home remodeler online.

Other Suggestions:

Are you aware that the color of your roof can set the mood of your entire exterior? With that in mind, here are a couple of things you may consider:

  • Brick or stone houses do not need further accentuating. This is when you need to carefully choose your roof color.
  • Overtly colored roofs can sometimes be an eyesore, but there are also some exceptions. This could work if they perfectly match other parts of your home. For instance, red roofing can display a contemporary atmosphere, while an orange roof gives off a Spanish, French country, or Mediterranean feel.
  • There are certain homes that don’t need further enhancement because either the siding or the structure itself already makes a statement. If this is the case, don’t choose a loud color. Rather, go with a neutral or dark shade.
  • In choosing an asphalt roof, choose a color darker than the body of your house. Unless your home has a very dark shade, then a lighter hue is a good option.

A good roofing color and style scheme creates a sense of harmony and balance in your home. Aside from choosing based on your taste, keep an open mind to what experts have to say.
