No longer does your home have to be just another structure in the sea of suburbia! With a stand-out, jaw-dropping roof color from Perfect Exteriors, you’ll be the envy of the neighborhood and beyond.

Understatement Is the New Spotlight-Grabber

You know that coworker who attends office parties with always the right level of dressiness? They’re not too uptight, but their outfit says they still care – maybe they’ve got a blazer on, but it’s been left casually unbuttoned.

That’s the look that trendy roofs work to emulate in 2021: attention-calling, yet refined. Whether it’s cedar shake roofing, asphalt roofing, or something else entirely, you’re always stylistically safe with something soft and sophisticated, yet relaxed.

Color-wise, consider:

  1. Pastel hues
  2. Greys
  3. Greens
  4. Blues
  5. Light browns, like parchment

Your roof is supposed to work in harmony with the rest of your home, not detract from it. Check in with your exterior contractor if you’re in need of the help of roofers and use their expertise to help you brainstorm.

A Bit of Advice: Always Match Your Roof to Your Siding

That never goes out of style! No matter if the roof color is trendy or not, consistency is key when it comes to creating a beautiful home. Any home exterior contractor would tell you likewise!

We’re not advising that your siding be the exact same color as your roof, of course; That doesn’t create the visual contrast and harmony that lovely home exteriors are made of. Rather, we advise you to stick with a color pair or triad, or perhaps to take inspiration from other homes that have similar architectural styles.

Get Inspired By Our Roofing Portfolio

Another hot tip: Check out your exterior contractor’s portfolios for some inspiration. The homes there are likely to be recent, and you’ll see what types of roofing results the chosen exterior contractor is known to give.

Your home is your castle. You’re free to make your own choices about what your residential roofing services install above your head. If trends and public opinion do matter to you, though, stick with the status quo. Exemplifying it has its own way of making you stand out!
