pick the perfect roof colour

Moving into a new home is bound to evoke many emotions. For the most part, picking a double or single storey home design and seeing an empty block of land transform into a home you can call your own is a pretty exciting experience. 

With an extensive range of apg designs to choose from, you're certainly spoilt for choice.

One decision you'll need to make is the colour of your roof. With COLORBOND steel, the only difficulty is deciding which colour is right for your new home building. There are 22 colours to choose from with COLORBOND so here are few ideas to get you started:

Go green

If you're a fan of green, a shade like Cottage Cream could be a smart pick. This bold, jade green is sure to make an impact.

Perhaps you're a green fan but would prefer a more subdued hue - if so, consider Mangrove, or even the brown-green Gully shade.

Be bold

If you're all about making a statement, Manor Red is a wise pick.

Thought it's a brave choice, it's a deep, powerful red that would look striking when paired with a deep grey or slate home exterior.

Gentle grey

For houses that boast a sleek, minimalist design, consider a soothing grey for your roof colour. 

A light shade like Shale Grey is one option, while deeper shades such as Wallaby and Windspray are also available. There's even Woodland Grey, which is a very dark yet stunning colour. 

Even if you opt for a dark roof colour, you can rest assured that your property won't overheat. COLORBOND's Thermatech technology will give you peace of mind. With solar reflectance characteristics, you can pick a dark shade based on its aesthetic appearance, without getting tied up with concerns about heat transfer.
