    Metal Roof Colors

    One of the benefits of choosing metal roofing is design flexibility. Metal roofing comes in a variety of colors and finishes so your customers can choose the perfect fit for their building project. When choosing metal roof colors, there are a variety of factors to consider from energy efficiency to the style and location of the building.

    Building Style & Surroundings

    The metal roofing color chosen should complement the style of your building. If your customer is replacing their roof, consider existing siding, windows, doors and landscape. For new construction projects, select a color that fits with your exterior color scheme. Look for colors that create an appropriate balance of contrast between the roof and the rest of the building.

    Evaluate neighboring homes or businesses to make a decision. Choosing a neutral color such as tan, white or gray can help a building blend in with surrounding structures. To help a building stand out, consider dark colors.

    Some Property or Homeowner's Associations may have stringent color guidelines for residences in suburban or urban areas. With 22 residential colors to choose from, metal roofing can be quickly and easily approved by these authorities.

    Energy Efficiency

    Metal roof colors influence the energy of a building, so careful selection can ultimately save money on energy bills.

    Compared to dark colors, light colors such as white, light bronze, beige and peach are better at reflecting the sun's heat rather than absorbing it into the building. These light colors are often referred to as cool metal roofing colors. Several of these colors are ENERGY STAR® certified which can earn a tax credit on top of potential energy saving.

    Metal Siding Colors

    Whether your customers have chosen to use metal panels as a complete siding solution or as as accent, there are a variety of metal siding colors, finishes, profiles and styles to choose from for their residential, commercial, agricultural or industrial structure.

    To achieve an industrial look, many architects and designers go for darker shades such as gray and black. These shades can be paired with bright colors to create eye-catching contrast. Another popular trend is to pair the traditional look of steel panels with light, warm tones to create a modern feel. Depending on the selected profile, create even more interesting curb appeal by having the metal siding installed horizontally.
