Metal Roof Colors: Options for Every Style of Home | NEWPRO

Metal roofing has become a popular roofing material for its durability and relatively low cost. With durable, weather-resistant paints, homeowners can choose from a wide variety of metal roof colors. With so many color options, it’s easy to match any home’s color scheme or architectural style. We at NEWPRO Home Solutions would like to offer you a look at some of the most popular color choices for metal roofs.

Choosing the Best Color for Your Metal Roof

Color matching for roofing is an art just as it is in fashion or visual art. The color of your metal roof greatly impacts the overall look of your home and its curb appeal. Some colors also have higher levels of reflectivity, which can affect the energy savings from your metal roof. 

Factors to consider when choosing a metal roof color include:

Colors of Existing Structures

Take a visual survey of your home to see what colors you need the roof to match. If you have red trim, for instance, a forest green or hemlock green roof might look odd. If you plan to repaint other parts of your home, however, you may have some more flexibility in color options.

Landscape Features

Does your landscaping include more greenery, colorful flowers, or earth-toned hardscaping? Homes in wooded areas look best with green or dark bronze metal roofs. Any gray finish — like ash gray, light gray, or slate gray — is also a good option.

Sierra Tan or a pre-weathered galvalume finish are good choices for homes in more arid regions with rocky terrain. Tropical homes can feature lighter colors like patina green.

Urban homes, on the other hand, are well-suited to bold color options like matte black, bronze, or a metallic champagne finish. 

Architectural Style

Modern homes favor dark neutrals like matte black and charcoal gray. A Spanish or Mediterranean-inspired home, on the other hand, goes well with terra cotta or colonial red. Homeowners in historical areas may also want to stay consistent with the home’s original color palette.

Local Regulations

You should find out if there are any restrictions on metal roofing colors in your area, especially if you live in an HOA neighborhood. Many subdivisions prefer homes to have a consistent color scheme with standard colors.

Design Trends

Architecture trends change slowly but steadily, and roof color is no exception. For example, bold choices like black metal roofs have been coming back into fashion in recent years. Some colors such as light neutrals are timeless. Do some research on which metal roofing colors are going out of style. Our design team can also give you some insight into the most popular color options for your home’s style and color scheme.

NEWPRO’s Color Visualizer

Thanks to technology, you can see your own home with any metal roof color before installation. Our 3D rendering technology allows you to apply any roof color to an image of your home. Simply go over a color chart, pick which color you think might be a good fit, then review a digital rendering of the finished roof on your home. We offer nearly 30 metal roof color options for our Alpine Metal roofing line.


Color Psychology

Humans have deeply ingrained psychological and emotional associations with different colors. Your metal roof color can impact the emotions your home evokes. Warm tones like reds and tans can give a home a bright, welcoming atmosphere. Cool colors like blues and grays might create a more tranquil ambiance. Neutral tones can imbue a home with a sense of modernity and elegance.


Energy Efficiency

When you think of a metal roof under the bright sun, it may not seem like the best choice initially. However, metal’s reflective properties make it an excellent way to reflect heat away from the home in the summer. When it gets colder, a metal roof also does a good job of keeping heat inside the home. While some colors are slightly more reflective than others, the metal roof color doesn’t have much of an impact on the roof’s energy efficiency. Metal is a durable roofing material that will hold up to extreme weather.
