Matching your Roof with your Home Exterior DesignSeptember 21, 2016


Whether it is time to reroof your home, or when planning for new home construction, matching your roof with your home exterior design is something to seriously consider, especially if you want to increase your property’s curb appeal. It’s true, a roof is mainly to protect a home from the elements, but it doesn’t have to look drab and uninviting. An attractive home sells, and unappealing ones often don’t, that is why making your roof and exterior home design match is so important.

In fact, improving the curb appeal of your home increases its worth, and, it does make it easier to sell. So, logically, a decision you make about the colour of your roofing, to match the outside of your house, will surely benefit you down the road, especially if you need to sell your house.

Ideas for Matching Your Roof and Home Exterior Design

If you want to boost curb appeal, by adding a new roof, choose a roofing material that has a variety of colours to choose from. Among the various roofing materials, such as metal roofs, asphalt shingles, stone slates, ceramic and concrete roof tiles, it is concrete roof tiles that have the most variety of colours available, particularly Boral concrete roof tiles.

Boral concrete roof tiles have many colours and shades to choose from that will match literally any home exterior design theme. However, there are two things to consider when choosing a colour for your roof tiles – dark colours verses light colours.

Dark vs. Light Colours

Finding the right colour roofing tiles, to match your home’s exterior, isn’t difficult with concrete tiles, however, some exterior home decorators may suggest choosing a lighter shade to keep your home cooler. Actually, it is surprising to most folks when they discover that with Boral concrete tiles, the colour of the tile doesn’t affect the heat as much as other materials. In fact, tests conducted on white and black concrete tiles only showed a temperature difference of 10 degrees when placed under the heat on the sun.

So, it is advised to choose a colour roofing tile that you like that matches the outside of your home, whether it is a dark or light shade of colour. Boral tiles will last you a life time, keeping your home warm in the cold months, and cool in the summer months.
