What Can I Do With My Roof?
You’d be surprised.
Miami homeowners are just beginning to discover the possibilities of showcasing their personal style through the color of their roof. Gone are the days that you have to limit yourself to a colorless roof! (Gone, we hope, forever!) Today’s roofing choices offer Miami residents the opportunity to stand out from the crowd with a bold, colored tile, metal, or shingle roof.
Choosing a roof color should be all about your own personal taste and style.
Should I go with a Shingle Roof, or… ?
The materials that your roof is made out of say just as much as the mere color. There are innumerable colors and styles available in metal, slate, tile, and shingle roofing. Most types available through local contractors and quality manufacturers have some form of wind-resistance to make them suitable for the occasional Miami hurricane.
Honestly, there are a variety of ways to arrive at the Perfect Palette, including:
- Your Favorite Colors-—What color is you? Are you a bold red? Earthy pine green? Classy charcoal? Mysterious blue? Consider which shades you are naturally drawn to then compare them to the available shingle roof colors. (Example: for lovers of the color red, check out GAF’s Timberline patriot red shingle.)
- Overall Color Palette—Perhaps your home already indicates that you are the owner? Then match your roof to your home’s overall exterior color palette. What colors are the gutters, doors, siding, and shutters? Choose a roof color that complements the home’s exterior.
- Exterior Materials— Some exterior materials, such as stone or brick, will likely never change color. If your home uses exterior materials that are unlikely to change during a renovation, you should choose your shingle accordingly. However, if your home has wood siding that can be painted, you have a bit more flexibility in choosing a shingle color.
- Nearby Houses—Bold colors are meant to stand out. A well-done house is a pleasure to look at, no matter how it contrasts with the next door neighbors. Be bold. Stand out.
