The best time to build a roof is when you need one! While current weather is a factor in outdoor jobs, there is never a bad time to build, repair, or replace a roof. Our first step is to identify any existing problems to determine when the repair should be completed. The materials involved will also factor into the project’s timeline (e.g., asphalt shingles require +40°F whereas a flat roof can be installed or repaired at any temperature). Our team is prepared to work as needed to resolve your issue. Whether it’s to fix ice-damming in the winter or repairing a leak before the next summer storm, Prrotect Roofing is ready for the job.

What Color Roof Is Best For Resale Value?

What Color Roof Is Best For Resale Value?

What Color Roof Is Best For Resale Value?

When you are getting a new roof installed or replacing an old roof, whether you plan on selling your home soon or not, it is always smart to think ahead and make sure that whatever color roof that you get will make your house more attractive to potential buyers in the future.

Here at Prrotect Roofing, we will work with you to ensure that you get the dream roof you envision that is also still able to be sold in the future. 

Where Do You Live?

This may seem silly, but different areas affect the colors you typically see on roofs.

For example, the further north you go, the more cooler-toned roofs you will see, and the further south you go, the roofs are generally warmer-toned. Cool means bluer undertones and warm means redder undertones. So, if you are in St. Louis, Missouri, where Prrotect Roofing is located, you are more likely to have a neutral to warmer-toned roof color.

Not only is this because of the aesthetics or “vibes” of these areas, but it is also to be the most efficient in terms of saving energy for your home. Lighter-colored shingles typically keep homes cooler, and darker-colored shingles absorb heat and make homes warmer, so keep that in mind.

What Is The Color Of Your Home?

This is likely not a surprise to you, but the color of your roof should pair well with the color of your home, otherwise, your roof may end up looking too flashy and not be very sellable.

Here is a specific list of what color shingles go best with these colors/styles of homes:

  • White: any color

  • If you have a white home, that means you really could go with any color! But, you should still select one within reason. Consider what is trending at the moment if you want to sell soon, and look at more timeless/classic options if you want to stay at your house for the foreseeable future.

  • Red/Brick: black or gray

  • Red is already a standout color on its own, so go for something more subtle, such as black or gray.

  • Cream/Taupe: Subtle hues of blue, black, or gray will complement your home nicely.

  • Wood: Black, green, gray, or brown won’t be too daunting to look at

  • Keep in mind that there are many different shades of wood, so the hues of the roof will depend on that.

  • Gray: Black, white, or gray shingles will look the best.

  • Gray is considered to be a bit more of a bold choice, so choosing a bright color is too distracting.

  • *If the color of your home isn’t listed, then you should highly consider a neutral-colored roof, such as white, gray, or black.

In Summary

If the exterior of your home is not super flashy, you can try to make your home pop with a brighter-colored roof, but most people don’t want to take that risk and should choose a neutral color for their roof.

If you need any more help in regards to choosing colors or types of shingles, feel free to
give us a call. We are always happy to help.
