How to Match Your Siding and Roofing Colors

When struggling to choose the best color for your siding, one smart tactic is to take cues from your roof. Consider the shade, material and design of your roof, and look for a siding option that provides a complement. Here are some tips from your siding contractor:.

How To Match Your Siding And Roofing Colors

Play With Colors

You’ll want to ensure that the color you choose for your siding doesn’t clash with your roof. Color coordination will help create a cohesive effect, making your home look orderly and attractive from the curb. To achieve this, you can start by matching analogs. For example, if you have a red roof, consider opting for a lighter shade in the same color family for your siding replacement..

Choosing contrasting colors can also work well if done correctly. We recommend using  a color wheel as your guide. Don’t just match stark contrasts at will; take note of which colors are at the opposite side of the current shade of your roof. For example, a dark gray roof will work well with cream-colored  as these two colors are tonally complementary. 

Get Some Perspective

Take a few steps away from your property to see what the color of your roof looks like from afar. This vantage point might give you new ideas. Next, take a walk around the block and look at the color schemes of neighboring homes. While you don’t want to replicate the designs of nearby homes, you can take inspiration from them and get insight on what works and what doesn’t.
