Pursuing a roof replacement is something that will create a sizable impact on the curb appeal of your brick or stone home. Of course, part of the preparations for this home improvement project is selecting the right roof color. There is also this aspect of complementing or matching it with your home’s exterior that you need to consider as well. This article discusses all these in detail.
Look at Brick First
When you have a brick home, one way to select the right color for your roof is to first examine the color composition of your exterior. Remember that brick has an underlying cast or tint that adds to the main color, which includes brown or black, pink, red, tan and cream.
Once you’ve determined this, you can now start making your choice. For instance, a warm-colored roof fits well with a tan, gold or brown-casted brick. A mid-tone roof won’t overpower a brick exterior with a white cast.
Another idea is to choose a roof with multiple color blends, with one that is similar to the primary brick color. The bevy of selections for such can be overwhelming, so be sure to seek help with your roofing experts for this.
Following the Same Principle on Stone
Such an approach for complementing roof color with brick siding works the same way for stone. Since these exteriors often fall within the grays and golds, your roof should be consistent with those common colors.
The key to an effective visual blend between the two, however, lies on the stone patterns. Roofs with few color variations work best for “busy” stone exterior characterized by shades of color distributed throughout the different stone sizes and symmetries. Roofs with multiple color blends give the home a distinct appearance when matched with stonework that lacks any patterns.
