The roof is one of the largest fixed components of a home and deciding the colour can be a daunting process for any home owner or renovator. The profile and pitch of the roof as well as the location of the house should all be considered when choosing your metal roof colour as it may play a substantial role in the overall look of the home. In situations where the roof is a dominant feature of the home, it is important to ensure that the roof colour does not over shadow the entire aesthetic of the building so it’s best to choose a mid-tone colour. For example roof colours, such as Dune, Ironstone, Slate Grey and Surfmist.
The second consideration when choosing the colour of the roof is the location of the home and its surrounding natural and built environments. With a range of 20+ colours, finding the right colour is an easy choice whether it be for a rural, coastal, city or the suburbs.
If your home is located in a rural area that is surrounded by a bush or green landscape then a more subdued colour choice such as Pale Eucalypt, Mangrove, and Caulfield green or the low-key brown of Jasper, are also suitable.
For homes in a coastal environment, it’s best to capture the seaside ambiance with metal roofing, in subdued colours such as Evening Haze or Armour Grey, or with more impressive blue such as Mountain Blue, or even Cove to reflect the sandy qualities of the seaside.
For city living areas where heritage buildings are the norm, more traditional roof colours are required such Heritage Red or Terraine, which are part of Metile Roofing’s colour range.
If the home is situated in a more modern suburban area then a more striking roof colour may be the best option such as Monument or Ebony creating a prominent yet attractive feature.
