Consider the style of your home 

The colour of the metal that you choose for your roof needs to match the overall style of your home. Choose a colour based on all the elements of your home’s exterior design, such as the colour of the siding, doors, windows, landscape, etc. Remember that a metal roof will keep its original colour for years, so you should choose a colour that you will be pleased with for many years down the line.


The colour of your roof plays a major role in helping make your home more energy-efficient, so taking this into consideration will help you save money on your monthly electric bill. Lighter colour roofs reflect the sun’s heat much better than darker colours. It is best to choose a light colour metal such as white, light bronze, beige, peach, light green, or blue if you live in a region that has a lot of sun and a hotter climate.

Going for a certain exterior look 

Today, colour choices available in metal roofing are virtually limitless, so it is up to you to decide what effect you want to achieve with the colour of your roof. Choosing a colour for your roof that contrasts with your home’s siding or brick colour will instantly help your home stand out and command attention. On the other hand, choosing complementary colours will create a monochromatic scheme that will convey a more classic look and feel.
