How to Choose a Roof Color: Top 3 Things to Consider
Have you been standing outside your house contemplating what color you need to pick for your new roof? Maybe spending too much time on Pinterest (PS we have a board for that – check it out, here!) googling houses that look like yours? We get it! A new roof is a big investment and not one that you want to regret. We have a few suggestions to consider when picking your new roof color below.

The color of a roof can completely change the look of your home. Baker Roofing Company is going to share the top three factors to consider when choosing a new roof.
- The Other Components of Your House – Think about the colors of your siding or windows. What colors might go well with them? Would you like your roof to match your siding? Choosing a bold color for your roof is not always the best choice. This is because your roof is one of the biggest surfaces of your home.
- Architectural Style – Not every color works with every home color. First, you must determine your home’s style and choose a color that will best highlight its features. It’s important that you know that your color choice also affects your home’s architecture. Light colors can visually enlarge your home, while dark ones do the opposite.
- Light-colored shingles – Lighter shingles reflect the sunlight best which helps to keep your house the coolest. Dark-colored shingles tend to absorb the heat and this makes your home warmer. Make sure that you choose a color that not only looks good but also makes you comfortable.
