What are Some of the Best Colors for Metal Roofing?

Posted by at 9:00 AM

If you're thinking about a metal roof, perhaps you're concerned about color.  Many people mistakenly think that metal roofing only comes in grey or metallic colors. However, it is a misconception since metal roofing is available in a wide variety of colors. Metal Roofing Can Be Customized 2016-04-04_1222In addition to offering different designs, some lines of metal roofing are able to be customized to get a shade or color that you’d like.  But this is a somewhat expensive option.   You may be able to find the shade you're looking for in the existing standard colors.  Take a look at all the colors available in KasselWood steel shingles shown here.  Kassel & Irons metal roofing products are one of our favorites. You can also choose custom levels of gloss on the metal. If you want something more flat, and that looks more natural on the home, this is also an option. Metal roofing also comes in many different looks. This means that you can make it look like any other type of roofing on the market such as shingles, shake, tiles or anything else you can think of. Lighter Colors are More Reflective to Heat One of the biggest considerations to make when choosing the best color for the roofing on the home is the fact that lighter colors are more reflective to heat than darker ones. White metal is one of the most energy efficient and cool types of metal roofing that you can get. It can be up to 50º cooler than going with a darker metal roof on the top of your home!  If your home doesn't get any shade from surrounding trees, this could be a great money-saver for you in terms of cutting your summer cooling bills.  The best color roof for your home depends on a number of factors.  Check out our earlier post to consider some of these aspects for choosing the color of your new MN metal roof.
