Mixing things up with striking color palettes can do wonders for darker roofs. For example, if you have a gray roof, the gray may be dark, medium or light gray. Black and dark gray roofs are the most neutral types of roofs and will work with the widest array of color palettes.
1-800-RITE-ROOF, your trusted roofing contractor, presents four colors that go well with dark-colored roofs:
The beauty of white paint is that it complements almost anything. An all-white house with a gray roof is a true classic. It works best with more traditional style homes, but it can also match some modern styles as well. Instead of all white, you can also pick other light neutrals like cream or soft beige. For a little more contrast, add a crisp white trim.
Look to the natural colors of bricks for some colors to complement your dark gray roof. This includes bright or burgundy reds, rich orange and other elements. Check with your roof repair contractors for these siding colors. You’d be amazed at how much vibrancy they can bring to your home.
If your dark roof shingles have a green undertone, play it up with exterior siding in a shade of green to match. Sage or light olive green works well with any shade of gray. For a subtler look, match your solid gray roof with a greenish-gray exterior color.
Yellow and gray is a classic pair that works well on all types of houses. For a more traditional look, a sunny, light yellow exterior siding is a beautiful pair to a light gray roof. Pairing a brighter yellow exterior with a dark gray roof gives a more edgy look. A bright mustard yellow is also great as a door accent with a gray roof. 1-800-RITE-ROOF, your siding and roof maintenance expert, can share several yellow-dominant siding ideas with you.
