How to Choose a Colorbond Roof Colour

city2surf blog

After much thought and consideration, you’ve decided that colorbond metal roofing is the best option for you. The hard work isn’t over yet. Now, you have to browse through tens of colour choices trying to find a colour scheme that fits the design of your home, the surroundings, and your personal preferences. That’s a lot to consider and we understand if you are feeling a bit overwhelmed right now.

Let us help make things a bit easier for you. Here’s what to consider when choosing your colorbond roof colour.

The Style of Home

The colour of your roofing should match the style of your home. Older styles go perfectly with more traditional colours, such as Manor Red or Cottage Green. You should also make sure that there is a unity in design and that the style is coherent. Sure, a bold accent could add to your home’s curb appeal, but there should be a connection between the materials used, the colour of your roofing and the style of your home.

The Structure of Your Roof

The design and shape of the roof can influence your choice too. An angled, minimalist roof could go well with a bold colour, but a prominent one might require a more toned down colour scheme.

Performance

The colour you choose can also influence the thermal performance of your roof. A lighter coloured roof will absurd the heat which in turn will boost your roof’s insulating properties. Light colours are generally more energy efficient that dark colours as they reflect heat, allowing you to stay cooler in the summer.

The Surroundings

You want your house to stand out, sure, but you don’t want it to become the joke of the neighborhood because of poor design choices. That’s why it’s best to consider the surrounding homes and natural setting before you choose a roof colour. Subtle colours like grays and whites go well with urban designs while a sandy colour scheme works great for Mediterranean style homes. Don’t be afraid to go for a bold colorbond roofing colour if your house has a minimalist or ultra modern design.

Don’t Forget about the Gutters

Most people only think about the gutters when there’s a problem with them. Roofing guttering can seem like an unnecessary expense, but the reality is that they can affect the appearance and functionality of your roof.

One of the most important questions you will want to ask yourself here is whether you will want the roof to match the gutters. Just like before, take into account the overall style of your home and how this choice will affect the design unity.

Building Requirements

If you live in a heritage-listed house, then your personal preferences or unique design ideas might not matter as much. Check with the Local Council to see if there are any restrictions regarding the colour of your roofing.

Over to You

Colorbond comes in a variety of options, and that can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it’s great to have such a wide colour scheme to choose from, but at the same time, it can feel a little daunting. Not to mention that colour samples can be inaccurate and not a good reflection of the final result.
