You’ve decided to restore you roof. A great decision adding value to your home while making your roof sound, and of course the new found street appeal your Roof Restoration will give you!
You have one big decision to make now – COLOUR
Do you refresh your current colour?
Or do you change the look of your home completely with a new colour?
There are a few key things to keep in mind if you do decide to change the colour of your roof.
Firstly keep in mind lighter colours will show the dirt on your roof sooner than the dark colours
The technology in Dulux’s 962 Roof Membrane does have excellent dirt resistance no matter what shade, but over the next 10 years dirt will eventually accumulate and will be more noticeable on the lighter shades than darker.
Take your colour chart out in the sun
Your roof is in direct sunlight, so when looking at your colour chart it is best to do so under direct sunlight to get a true colour. Also, keep in mind if you are matching window trim, your trim will look darker if it is shaded by your eaves. If you’re are holding your colour chart to your eaves you may want to think about going the next shade darker due to the colour looking lighter in direct sun.
Keep in mind the colour of your gutters
We can offer an external quote for painting your guttering and fascia, but if you are looking to keep your gutters as is and are planning on changing the colour of your roof it is important to consider the current colour of your guttering. If there is an aspect on your roof such as a Dutch gable with the same colour as your guttering or say the trims around your windows it is easier to tie in a completely different colour on your roof.
Taking a look at our before and after Galley will also help you in your colour direction. We can also give you a sample tile if you require and the address of some roofs in your area so you can see the colours you have in mind in person.
*Please not the colours displayed on the Colour Chart here may not be true colours. The best way to see true colours is to see in person, as screen colour tones vary.
