Roofing Styles That Will Give Your Home a Much Needed Makeover!

Upgrading your roofing material and customizing its style and colour can enhance the look of your Adelaide home drastically. Lately, metal roofing has been gaining popularity among Adelaide homeowners. Its durability, long lifespan and low maintenance requirements have always made it one of the best building materials. Today, metal roofing comes in many styles and colours to mimic any roofing design you desire. But how do you choose the best roofing style for your Adelaide house? Here are a few tips:


Roofing Colour

Long are gone the days of a bland grey roofing. Today, steel roofing offers a wide variety of colour options to choose from. To help you find the perfect colour for your Adelaide home, COLORBOND® steel comes in twenty-two colours.

You want to choose a roofing colour that is not the exact match to the exterior of your Adelaide home. It will give the house a more dramatic and attractive look. If your gutters, fascia and downpipes are also made of COLORBOND® steel, you can mix and match the colours.

Before you decide on a particular roofing colour, look at it outdoors. It will give you a better idea of how the roofing colour looks in daylight.


Aspects to Consider

For tall, multi-level houses, a dark roofing colour will balance the look. On the other hand, dark roofing on a small, single-story home can make it seem “all roof”. Therefore, going for a lighter colour will be a better choice. It will help the roof blend in with the rest of your Adelaide house.

A lighter roofing colour will also make your Adelaide house more energy-efficient. However, if you still want a darker roofing colour, COLORBOND® steel has got you covered. Every shade (except Night Sky®) in the standard COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology. This roofing technology bounces the heat off the roof, saving you money on energy cost. It will also reduce the heat stress on your Adelaide roofing.


Your Adelaide House Style

Muted roofing colours, like grey, brown or cream, will create a more classic look. They will be more suitable for a traditional house style. If you have a modern Adelaide house, then you can be more adventurous in your choices. On modern home designs, not much of the roof is visible from the ground. Therefore, it is advisable to choose a bold roofing colour. It will help accentuate the lines of your Adelaide home by creating a dramatic contrast.
