Curb appeal plays a major role in determining the value of a home and because your roof makes up for about half of your home’s overall look, choosing the right roof from the right roofing contractor is important. There are many factors that can affect your curb appeal and all of them must work together harmoniously to maximize their benefits.
What important pointers do you have to keep in mind when making design decisions for a roof replacement project? Our experienced roofers at Adams Roofing Professionals offer these tips to help you enhance the curb appeal of your home.
Complementing the Rest of Your Home
Your roof is a big part of your appeal but it is not the only part. You want to choose colors and patterns that work well with the other exterior elements you have. These are your front door, your windows and your siding, among other things. Talk to your roofer about roofing options that will fit nicely with the current architectural style that you have and use these other elements to narrow down your choices.
Colors and Patterns
Choosing colors can be tough but there is one easy concept that is almost always a guaranteed hit: contrasting. This means using roof colors that are starkly different from your siding. Light-colored siding panels work well with darker shades of shingles and vice versa. Additionally, you also want to choose complementing patterns. If your siding has a simple clapboard pattern, choose shingles with varying sizes. Alternatively, use uniform shingles for busy siding designs.
Don’t Forget Functionality
It’s easy to get carried away when choosing how you want your roof to ultimately look but don’t forget to choose materials that still perform well for your home. It’s better to have sturdy and durable roofing systems that require less frequent roof repair visits than a visually appealing roof with high-maintenance needs.
