Metal roofing has long been a popular roofing material used in a variety of applications,…
When we mention a metal roof, we’ll forgive you for imagining flat, dull sheet metal that belongs on an industrial building in the downtown commercial areas of your city. Today’s metal roofing systems come in various designs and colors to suit any residential or commercial property.
Advancements in production techniques and installation procedures mean the modern metal roof is attractive, durable, and efficient. With Prime Roofing, you have a selection of metal roof designs, with several color options to suit your property’s aesthetic.
Our metal roofing systems come pretreated and painted for immediate installation on your property. These metal roofs feature a clean, professional look that adds to the curb appeal of your home or commercial building.

Consider Surrounding Properties
When choosing the color for your metal roof, it’s important to consider surrounding properties. If you live in a complex or gated estate, you must comply with HOA standards for roof colors.
If homes in your neighborhood have earthy colors, your house will stand out like a sore thumb if you paint the metal roof a bright color. You want a color that blends into the local landscape while providing a unique look to your home.
Does the Color Fit the Design Theme of Your Home?
Consider the design theme of your home when selecting the color for your metal roof. Choose a color that complements the structural materials of your home. A terra-cotta or earthy color will work well with your new metal roof if you have a red brick home.
If you have white plaster on your walls, a green or blue color provides a striking contrast that’s highly appealing without distracting from the look of your home. Consider your choice if you’re thinking about following color trends in the market.
Will the trend last? Or will you need to paint the roof in a few years because you can’t stand the color? Select a color for your metal roof that stays relevant regardless of the latest trends in home design.
Think of Energy Efficiency
Florida is ‘The Sunshine State for a reason. It has a seasonal UV index average of 7, one of the highest in the country. UV rays not only fade paint fast but also heat up metal roofs quickly. If you have a dark color on your roof, you will need to compensate for the heat absorption with additional insulation on the roof and the need for air conditioning in your home.
A light color for your metal roof helps to reflect the sunlight, keeping your home cool in the summer heat. Reduce your energy consumption and carbon footprint, and consider light, reflective colors to keep your home cool.
Does It Add Resale Value?
You might think about giving your home a unique, loud color, but how will that affect the resale value of your property? Consider how the color of your metal roof affects your property value and its curb appeal to buyers.
Take a drive around your neighborhood and pay attention to the roof colors on the properties in your area that have the highest market value. We recommend discussing your options with a local realtor. They’ll be happy to give you some advice if you act like you might use them to sell your home in the future.
Match the Color to Gutters, Fascia, and Downspouts
Match the color to your gutters, downspouts, and fascia boards. You can contrast colors to create an appealing look that offsets the roof. We recommend offsetting colorful gutters, downspouts, and fascia boards with a neutral color you’re your metal roof.
