The color of your roof is an important factor to consider, regardless of what material you ultimately choose. Color plays a big role in your home’s curb appeal and how it appears to prospective buyers can impact your home’s value. In some areas, color may also impact things like energy efficiency; cool roofs are often light colored because they do not absorb as much heat from the sun. 

When choosing the color for your roof, you will want to consider several things. These include the color of your home; you will want the color of the roof to coordinate with your siding, trim, and other exterior accents. You’ll also want to consider what colors the roofing material you choose is available in; clay tiles for example only come in a limited number of shades. When choosing the material, it is important to keep in mind the cost of roof replacement, as it varies from one material to another.

Finally, be sure to pay attention to your region and neighborhood. Regional preferences can play a role in things like HOAs and home value, so make sure that your roof and siding combination fits into the neighborhood norm. 

Using the tool below, you can see which are the most recommended roof colors for each type of siding and how they look, along with some recommendations.
