Learn more from the top roof repair contractor, Dynamic Roofing Concepts.
Your Home’s Style
One of the most important considerations when choosing a color, not only for your metal roof, but also every other component of your home, is your home’s style. You need to choose a color that goes well with your home’s general theme or color motif. Factor in all the elements of your home’s exterior design, like the color of the siding, windows, doors, landscape and other components. Remember that a metal roof’s paint is very durable and will last for many years to come, so be sure to pick a color that you love and that complements your home’s design.
Keep in Mind Your Color’s Desired Effects
In today’s remodeling industry, you have almost infinite possibilities in choosing a color, so the sky’s the limit with what you want to achieve with your desired metal roofing paint.
You can make your home stand out by using contrasting colors in highly noticeable areas such as your siding or bricks which will definitely catch your neighbors’ attention. Conversely, picking a complementary color that blends with the home’s theme conveys a serene and classic vibe for your home. Other homeowners decide to opt for metal finishes such as stainless steel, galvalume, titanium, aluminum and other exotic metals, which give their home a futuristic or ultra-modern look. Also, picking light colors can help your home look taller, while a dark color can make a tall roof look less towering.
It goes without saying that you should pick a paint that withstands weathering and lasts for the years to come. Make sure you pick a paint that has a special acrylic resin that is resistant to UV light. This resin also prevents fading, peeling and corrosion. You can also apply coatings and sealants to further protect your paint and your roof in the future. The current industry standard for metal painting is Kynar 500 which comes with a 30-year warranty. This is the best paint choice you can get for your metal roof as it’s very durable and handles weather elements pretty well.
