3 Tips For Choosing a Roof Color

When it comes time to replace your Lake of the Ozarks roof, there is a lot you will have to think about. From choosing the best roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks, roofing material, roof color, and more! It's important to take the time to choose a roof color carefully. A quality roof should last for 15-20 years and even longer if you choose a metal roofing material, so choosing a color you will like for many years is important. Today, our Lake of the Ozarks roofing company has some tips for choosing your roof color!


1) Compliment Your Siding

While you want your roof to compliment the siding on your home, you don't want them to match. Choosing the exact same shade for your shingles and your siding won't look as good as it sounds. The most visually appealing roof and siding combinations are colors that are complementary. In addition, if your siding is busy, like brick or stone, you want to choose a simple single color for your roof. Two multi-color combinations will make your home look very busy. Not only should the colors compliment each other, but also the patterns.

2) Think About Painting

Keep in mind that painting the siding, doors, and windows on your home are easier than changing out your roof. Therefore, don't choose your roof color solely based on those features of your home that can be painted a different color. As long as your home isn't brick or stone, you have a little more flexibility with roof color. You can always paint those other features of your home to complement your roof better later. If you do have a brick or stone house, be sure to compare a sample shingle to it before making a final decision.


3) Consider Heat Retention

The color of your roof can have a significant effect on heat retention. During the summer months at the Lake of the Ozarks, outdoor temperatures can get quite high. Studies have shown that the wood under black shingles can get up to 10 degrees hotter than the wood under white shingles. Darker roofs tend to attract more heat. Therefore, you might want to consider something a little lighter. You'll be thankful when you get that summer utility bill.

  1. Excellent post.

    One thing I have noticed about certain sites is that, even though they have tons of content, the site looks great and the headlines are eye catching is that the material is simply filler. It’s downright unreadable. You can forget it 6 seconds after you read it. Not the case with your post though, really enjoyed it reading it and it held my attention all the way through! Keep it up.

  3. You never want to be looking anywhere but local for a roofing repairs north georgia. I don’t know if they will charge you more, but like you said, they will know the regulations and building codes better. I have never thought about getting a warranty for the roof. I would see if you actually need a warranty because my house for instance is in the desert so we don’t get very violent storms like other places.
