Picking the right color for your roof is important since you’ll need to live with it for a long time and it is one of the most significant investments you can make as a homeowner.

Here are our 5 Simple Tips For Choosing The Right Roof Color:

Tip #1 Don’t rush picking out a color  for your roof

A new roof color is not a decision that should be rushed — it’s OK to take some time to give it serious thought. Consider whether your color choice will be what you want years down the road.

Tip #2 Talk with your roofing estimator

The roofer giving you an estimate has likely overseen hundreds of roofing jobs and can speak to which colors will best complement your home’s structure and current walls. It’s easier to change your roof than your walls, so be sure the roof color you have chosen does not clash with the walls and trim.

Tip #3 Look around at roofs in your area

What kind of roofing do other homes in your neighborhood have? It’s important to be sure your selection complements your neighbors’ homes. A choice that is not complementary to neighboring homes may make your home more difficult to sell down the road.

Tip #4 Know your home style

Evaluate your home’s style to decide what is an appropriate color and what is not. Home magazines can also be helpful in showcasing different styles of homes and the roof colors that suit them the best.

Tip #5 Make sure that your roof color and materials are guaranteed

It is important that the color of your roof suits well with your home but make sure that your roof color and materials are guaranteed.


We had our roof restoration and roof painting done by Prestige Roof Transformations and we decided to go with dulux products for two reasons: the product is very safe (for our tank water) so we can drink clean water straight off our roof and also for the insulation benefits as it reflect the heat which lowers our energy costs. We are more than happy with the work Prestige Roof Transformations did. Excellent job!

We are really pleased with the way the roof turned out because it has been nearly 30 years and our roof was bearing a lot of patches. We have a two storey home and the upstairs was really hot before Prestige Roof Transformation restored our roof. We are very happy about the advice of Prestige Roof Transformations especially about the cool roof system. The new cool roof system came up really well and now we are looking forward for cooler time and environment upstairs. Also, we have a steep roof and Prestige Roof Transformations was really careful about the safety of the men working on the roof which really impressed me. We are so happy about the job they have done!

Highly recommended. Brad assured me that they would start the job once receiving my acceptance of the proposed Commercial Painting works. I was very impressed as they finished the painting before the 3 weeks promised. Everyone on the job was courteous and considerate…… professionalism at its best. Nothing was a problem and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my family or friends.

I’d like to compliment your guys firstly for the quality of their workmanship and in addition the professional manner they have undertaken their work. They moved through the various areas unobtrusively and were very respectful of the privacy of the occupants. It was a pleasure dealing with them throughout the project. My congratulations to both you and your team for encouraging such professionalism.
