A lot of people are going with roofs that stand out on their own…they want something different that expresses them and express their personality, which could be a tricky proposition…you want to stand out while still fitting into your neighborhood.
Take a ride around the neighborhood and check out what other homeowners have chosen. This is a great way to see actual roof colors applied on different types of houses and this can help you choose your own color scheme. Pay particular attention to newly built homes because they would likely have the newest style developments for roofing in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Newport News and Virginia Beach areas. The article noted some samples of these fresh perspectives:
Bright metal roofs — most often red or green — are better suited for farmhouse-style homes, or used over small structures like porticos or bay windows. Steel blue is more European.
Colored roofs are also starting to crop up on “new American-style” homes, which Smith describes as combining popular styles and materials — perhaps, say, a stone and brick exterior with a copper roof.
However, if the myriad of possibilities is blinding your decision, you certainly need the assistance of The Roofing & Remodeling Company.
