In today’s modern design landscape, you have more options for roof design than ever.

However, roofing materials are only half the equation. Once you’ve decided, what type of roof you want, you also have to find the perfect color. This can be daunting, as there are no small amount of options to choose from. Fortunately, our expert roofers at Lyons are here to tell you exactly how to select the right roof color for your home.

A Simple Guide to Selecting the Right Color for Your Roof

  • For traditional homes: The best roofing color for traditional houses is usually a black or dark blend. This will match your home’s stately appearance, and ensure your roof doesn’t clash with the classic nature of your larger property.
  • For suburban homes: For most suburban houses, it’s all about tans, grays, and beige. These light colors may not seem that interesting, and may not even fit your house, depending on whether it has a more modern style. However, for suburban homeowners who want to keep it simple, these basic tones consistently get the job done.
  • For deep reds and oranges: For rusty reds or burnt oranges, match your home’s roof with a red or brown color. This look is perfect for houses located in the Southwest or Florida, where stucco and clay tiles are part of a long and rich design tradition.
  • For homes in wooded areas: If your home is located in or around a wooded area, you will want to stick with the earth theme when it comes time to pick out a roof. Think deep forest tones, like shingles with green and brown blends, and siding that has the hue of the trees.
  • For beach houses or houses with red trim: There’s no way around it; if your home has red trim, it’s probably going to have a slightly beachy look, even if it’s located in the suburbs. Our suggestion—you might as well lean into it! Don’t be afraid to go with nautical colors. Beach homes beg for blue roofs to complete them, and if you have already gone with the bold choice of red for your trim, you might as well go all-in on a tasteful blue.
