When you are in the middle of choosing the right roof for your home, you have many things to consider. When you put enough thought into choosing correctly, you will end up with a roof that has all the features you feel are the most important and you will have a roof that looks great on your home and against your landscape. Also, the roof of a home can account for almost half of its visual exterior, so the look of the roof is more important than some people give it credit for. Here are some things to think about:
Know when to add texture and how much
If you have a home that has a lot of things going on already with its design and has plenty of texture, then you may want to have a roof installed that doesn't add even more texture because that could end up being too much. So, instead of going with a roof that adds more texture, consider something more subtle, like a smoother and flatter metal roof or an asphalt shingle roof.
However, if you have a home that has a flat and more basic design, then the roof may be your convenient opportunity to give your home's exterior some much-needed texture. So, you may want to go with something like S-shaped tiles or with another type of roofing that has plenty of texture to offer. With most houses, they will lie somewhere in the middle, so it will be up to your own discretion whether you would prefer more texture or something smoother looking.
Choose the right color of roof
While many people automatically picture dark gray when they think of asphalt shingles and reddish-orange when they think of tiles, the fact is that most types of roofs offer you plenty of color options, so you can go with a color that complements your home well. Most types of roofs can come in black, brown, grey, blue, red, green, and even purple shades. So, this gives you the ability to go with the color of roof that you want.
You can choose a color that blends into the rest of the house well or you can go bold and choose a color that helps a house become a real attention grabber. A lot of times you can even have shades of the same color combined in a way that helps give your home a bit of an edge.
