Selecting a new concrete tile roof for your home can be an exciting task and when doing so, it’s important to remember that a new roof can completely transform your outdoor space in an instant. Before you choose your tile profile and color, make sure you take into consideration your home’s exterior elements (stonework, trim, shutters, doors, etc.). How will it all work together to create a beautifully unified design aesthetic? Below are a few tips to get you started.
Unless you are planning on doing some major renovations, make sure you take the permanent details and components of your home into consideration when selecting the roof color. This includes brick, stone and pavers. When gathering your roof tile samples, be sure to start here first with your comparisons and then move to the less permanent painted areas, such as the siding or stucco. These areas of the home can always be changed. The image above shows perfect color harmony with the Eagle Roofing Products’ Walnut Creek Blend concrete roof tile. The tan, orange and dark brown tones throughout the roof blend seamlessly with the like-colored textured stone work and cream body.
Your home’s architectural style plays a major role in selecting your concrete roof tile profile and color. For example, in order to create a cohesive look, this Spanish style home was topped with an S-shaped Eagle Capistrano concrete roof tile, creating the authentic look of clay that is often used in traditional Spanish architecture. If you have a Coastal or Colonial style home, a slate-like flat tile may work best. For Ranch or Craftsman exteriors, textured flat tiles, similar to wood shake, in warm browns and tans will pair nicely.
If you are reroofing and do not plan to repaint, or have settled on the paint colors for your new home, it’s important to choose a tile roof color that will complete your exterior look. For instance, if the shutters sharply contrast with the body, picking a roof color that closely matches the shutters is ideal and will tie the whole house together. The blend of grays, tans and browns found in Eagle Roofing Products’ Nantucket Blend concrete roof tile was the perfect choice for this home. It brings the pale blue shutters, brown trim and earth-toned stone work all together creating harmonious curb appeal.
