Who Chooses The Roof Color – The Homeowner Or The Contractor?

Choosing the right roof color can be a confusing business – there are just so many choices. Of course, if you have a Homeowners Association (HOA) your choices may have to meet their criteria – but even with limitations, there are a myriad of colors to choose from. Each of those colors will be a reflection of your personal tastes and style, and in certain circumstances, a great-looking roof can have a positive effect on the value of your home, so the decision must be made by a combination of heart and mind.

The temptation is to turn to your contractor for advice. They were selected as a result of diligent research into just which service provider fills you with confidence that they can get the job done – in other words, you trust them.

Your selected contractor will have years of experience in the painting of roofs and roof waterproofing – and will have a good idea of the most popular roof paint colors for your style of home and your neighborhood. They will be experts on the subject of the best product to use for painting the roof, and they may have insight into popular colors (they’ll by and large be safe and not too extravagant) – but in the end, the decision of which color to select will fall to you – and be dictated by your personality.

Once you have made your choice (or a selection of choices) feel free to discuss them with your contractor. They may be able to point out the pros and cons of each color choice. Do not hesitate to ask questions, you’re the customer and the color of the roof will not only affect the resale value of your home, but it also represents a significant investment, in both fiscal terms – and in the future happiness of your family.

Best color for your roof 

There are some steps that you can take to ensure that you make the right choice when it comes to the color of your roof. Firstly look around for house images on the Internet and around your neighborhood. The research will help you narrow down your choices by looking at actual homes. Remember, a color swatch is not an infallible guideline – colors may look very different when they are applied to large spaces such as a roof. Make sure that the roof color of the images that you are looking at compliments the exterior wall paint.

Your contractor might very well have the addresses of local homes that match your color preferences. Even if they do not, spend some time visiting these houses, you may very well find a color that causes you to change your mind. If you have the time, ring the doorbell and have a chat with the homeowner about their choice and how the paint is holding up. If nothing else, it will provide you with added confidence in your choice of roof painting contractor.

Your roof color is a very personal choice, but your contractor is there with you every step of the way, and you can rely on them to source the very best products that match your choice of paint.
