How to choose the perfect color for your commercial roof?
When it comes to making some big-time investments, you are usually looking for exceptional functionality paired with an aesthetic value. Although some products are mainly valued because of their degree of functionality, everything seems better when the end-product looks decent, even better – beautiful. In the commercial roofing industry, a roof is mainly valued based on its performance, rather than appearance. But why not combine both? Who says you can’t have an extremely functional roof, that also happens to be gorgeous. Well, you can.
One of the latest innovations in the commercial building roofing industry includes offering a certain color that can actually add certain features to your building. Although to an amateur it might seem like sci-fi, it’s actually possible to get the most out of the color of your roof.
Like anything else in the roofing industry, when choosing the perfect color for your roof, you have to take a lot of factors into consideration. You should do all of that while keeping in mind that you probably won’t repaint again in the next couple of years.
First of all, observe the entirety of your building and its surroundings. Although often overlooked, eccentric roofing solution can certainly attract a lot of eyes. You wouldn’t want any overlapping patterns in the overall image of your business, so pick a color that suits your exterior.
Second of all, here is some insight provided by years of experience. Not only does the color of your roof dictate the whole image of your property, but it can also have reflective or absorbent properties. Speaking in the language of the modern man, by carefully picking the color of your roof you can directly affect your annual energy costs – by reducing them, of course.
There are two main types of basic coloring – the darker tones and the lighter tones. Now, you shouldn’t make your choice simply because you like one better than the other. The main thing you should consider is your climate. Lighter tones have the ability to reflect the sun’s heat, dubbing them the perfect choice in residential roofing solutions in areas with a lot of sun. Darker tones, on the other hand, have the ability to absorb the sun’s wavelength, keeping the inside warm, making them the perfect choice for homeowners in naturally colder areas.
In the end, it all comes down to your personal choice. No matter how functional a color may be in a given environment, if it looks ugly to you, you probably wouldn’t want it on top of your commercial roof.
In case you’re living in an area surrounded by complex patterns, you might want to choose a soothing color for your shingles. The opposite works too – if the area surrounding your home is bland, don’t hesitate to choose a more eccentric solution.
Lastly, don’t forget to view the wanted color in every type of light you have. Some colors may appear different when viewed in the night, as compared to the image provided during the daytime. Be careful with your choice, and always consult with an expert before making your final decision.
