Most people don’t ever think about their home’s roof color. Most people are busy and don’t even notice the color of our roof. We tend to focus on the siding, trim, wood posts, gutters and downspouts. But honestly, you have to look at the roof shingle color before you decide the color for the rest of your home. This will add to the overall curb appeal of your home.

Want to create better curb appeal? Coordinate your house siding, gutters and downspouts, wood posts, and trim with the roof shingle color. You can go either way. Most want to coordinate these areas. Most stick with the warmer more neutral colors. But some like to do a bold statement and contrast them. The Georgian style home tends to have a black roof color with a contrasting red brick home, with white or black accent colors.
