How to choose the best colour for your roof! Australis Roofing offers roof replacement and new roof installations in Gold Coast, Central Coast & Sydney: 1300 093 721
Whether you are looking for a roof replacement or you’re choosing a roof for your new home, choosing the colour of your roof is an important decision. You want the colour to complement the rest of the exteriors, as well as the environment you live in. Here are some things to keep in mind when selecting your roof colour:
1. Go for a drive around the neighbourhood
This is a good way to see what colours you do and don’t like, and gain inspiration. Maybe you want a colour that blends in with the rest of the homes in your area, or perhaps something bold that stands out.
2. The colour of your roof influences how heat is absorbed and reflected
In summertime, heat can absorb more with darker coloured roofs. Your air conditioner may be working harder to keep your home cool and increase your electricity bills. But in the wintertime, you’ll find that heat is more effectively kept in the home. On the other hand, lighter coloured roofs are better for reflecting heat, so in hot climates, lighter colours may be the choice for you. This is another great reason to add insulation to your roof cavity. Thermatech® technology optimises the solar reflectance properties of 21 COLORBOND® steel standard colours. With Thermatech® technology, even the darker colours in the COLORBOND® steel range perform better without changing their appearance. So you can choose from a wider range of colours and still enjoy a thermally efficient roof. (Thermatech® technology is not available in the colour Night Sky® and is not available in COLORBOND® Stainless steel)
3. Your interior colours
To make the colour and design of your home feel unified, the colour of your roof should also complement the colours of the inside of your home.
4. Future buyers
When you are thinking of your roof colour, also consider what will be appealing to future buyers of the home. Something too bold may be a deal breaker with potential buyers.
