Your roof takes up a huge portion of your home’s exterior, and thus can make or break your home’s curb appeal. To ensure your roof is enhancing your home’s beauty rather than detracting from it, you need to choose the right color for your roofing material.
In this post, V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding, Inc., your leading provider of gutters and roofing services, discusses the importance of roofing color.
The color of your roof isn’t just an aesthetic feature–it can also impact your roof’s performance. For example, lighter-colored shingles are designed to reflect sunlight rather than absorb it, which can improve your home’s energy efficiency on hot days.
If you want a dark-colored roof but don’t want to sacrifice energy efficiency, fear not. Special technology has been developed to create dark asphalt shingles that reflect heat. This gives you more latitude in designing your roof as you can use dark shingles without worrying about energy considerations.
Improved Curb Appeal
The most obvious reason to carefully consider color when investing in roof replacement from your top roofing and siding contractor is of course curb appeal. Higher curb appeal not only makes your property more valuable should you decide to sell it, but it also raises the standard value of houses in your neighborhood.
When it comes to choosing a color, it’s best to consult a roofing contractor. Some roofing manufacturers even feature online design tools that allow you to “preview” how your chosen color and style would look like on your home.
