Whether you are sprucing up your home to sell it or just to maintain its look and/or integrity, your roof is an important aspect.
The team at Homestyle Roof Painters offer all options for roof restoration in Brisbane including painting.
Painting the roof of your home is a great idea for several reasons, but the biggest advantages being that it can save you on cooling costs and lends an aesthetic appeal to your home.
Here’s what to consider when choosing the right roof colour for your roof restoration.
The area you live should play a role in determining the colour you choose for you roof.
We recommend earthy colours for home in rural areas, subtle blue or brown colours for homes near the coast, and something bright and noticeable for a home in an urban environment.
There are plenty of hues in each colour range, so you may want to do some matching to the exterior of your home before making a final decision.
When it comes to roof restoration in Brisbane, make sure you consider heritage colours.
Certain neighbourhoods are considered heritage areas and there are usually special guidelines regarding making changes to your home if you live in such an area.
In many cases, you’ll be restricted to just a few roof colour choices. We can help you find those options if you live in a heritage neighbourhood.
As mentioned above, you will want to match your roof colour to the exterior of your home.
Consider the colour of your siding, the brick, your shutters, your door and anything else on the outside of your house.
You want the roof colour to blend in, not stand out in a garish way.
Use paint samples or our online paint previewer to see how certain colours will look on your roof, when matched with everything else on the house.
Things to avoid
We suggest staying away from very bright or stark colours if you live in a tree-lined area or a space with a lot of foliage.
Choosing a muted earth colour enables your home to blend in with the surroundings and create a soothing colour palette.
In these areas, bright colours will not look that good. Likewise, if your neighbourhood is one that sees a lot of neutral colours, your home will stand out (and not in a good way) if you choose a colour that is the opposite.
