How to Choose the Best Roof Color for Your Home


Choosing the best roof color for your home can be a daunting task. At Bone Dry Roofing – West, we understand how difficult this decision can be. This guide will show you the factors to consider to find the roof color suitable for your home.

Complement and Contrast

Choose a color palette that lets your roof complement its siding and trim. You can use brown or tan for light-colored houses. Alternatively, you can use light gray or white if you have dark-colored siding, like navy blue or black. The most important factor to consider when selecting a roof color is how it will look with the rest of your home.

Your Local Area

The local environment is a factor in making your home’s roof and aesthetics stand out. If you live in a rural area, choose a color that blends in with the natural surroundings, like green, brown or tan. On the other hand, urban houses can benefit from bold colors, like light gray roofs. If you need a guide, you can consult your HOA about the color styling and schemes used in your local area. You can also take photos of homes with similar architecture as yours as a reference.

Residential Architecture

Your home’s architecture is a factor when choosing roof colors. If your house has an eclectic or modern look, opt for something bright and bold to make it stand out. Alternatively, homes with classic architecture can use shades like black, gray or brown that won’t overwhelm the rest of the exterior design.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
