Choosing Exterior Colors for Your Home

When it comes to real estate, there is one word you always here – location, location, location!

But there’s an overlooked, equally important phrase that is just as important – curb appeal! And when it comes to curb appeal, color is one of the most dominant elements.

A coordinated color scheme on the exterior of a home, including the siding, trim, and roof, will highlight the design – and curb appeal – of a home.

But choosing colors for a roof, siding, trim and gutters of a home can be challenging, particularly if just one element of the home’s exterior is being replaced, and you’re trying to choose a color that will complement existing colors. It can be difficult to know what combination will compliment the style of your home, while helping your house look beautiful but not trendy.

The Rooferees have been improving and beautifying home exteriors for nearly 35 years, and they are ready to help you choose the perfect combination for your home.

If you are choosing a color for the siding, trim, gutters, or roof of your home, here are a few considerations from the Rooferees:

  • Choose a color to last, not to be trendy. Replacing an element of your home’s exterior with quality products means you shouldn’t have to replace it for several years. Without storm damage, an asphalt roof can last for more than 20 years, quality vinyl siding and gutters can last for more than 50 years, and a DaVinci roof can last forever! Avoid trends!
  • Stick to the basics. The most popular exterior color choices are shades of grey, beige, or greige (colors that fall between grey and beige). Choosing a neutral color will have mass appeal and will highlight the style and architect of any style of home.
  • Show your personality with accent elements. Homes with a neutral color palette have the most curb appeal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little color and personality. Choose a fun accent color for design elements such as shutters, roof gables and trim to add a pop and show your personality. And a bold color on the front door can really be eye-catching and up the curb appeal!
  • DaVinci roofing has more than 50 color combinations. If you are installing a new roof, consider DaVinci Roofscapes. Not only are they wind, hail and fire resistant, but Davinci offers more than 50 color combinations for your home. And as the #1 installer of DaVinci roofs in the US, the Rooferees have plenty of experience to help you choose the perfect combination for your home.
