LP® SmartSide® ExpertFinish® Trim & Siding offers popular siding colors in sets that complement brown roofs, as well as gray and black roofs. But what if your home has a more unusual roof color? Here are some modern design examples to give you some siding design ideas.
In the early to mid-1900s, houses with green shingle roofs were not unusual at all. Dark green roofs were common on house styles such as bungalows, foursquares and cottages. Although green shingles went out of style for several decades, many roof manufacturers have reintroduced the once-common green roof color option, only this time in an architectural shingle. A green roof is surprisingly versatile and makes for a charming alternative to a neutral-colored one.
Fresh Color Palettes for a Green Roof:
Red roofs are often seen in country or farm settings and are usually a metal standing seam option. Many metal roof and siding color combinations can look great on your home. Like green asphalt shingles, red asphalt shingles were once popular for early 20th-century homes. Terracotta tile roofs are typical on southwestern-style homes, usually with a plaster house siding.
What Colors Look Good With a Red Roof?
Multi-colored roofs are less common, but there are manufacturers that are creating multi-colored shingles that look similar to historic slate roofing. To make the color scheme cohesive, it’s important to repeat one or two of the colors from the multi-colored roof somewhere else on the house’s exterior. For example, if there is green in the roof, repeat the green color on either the shutters or the front door. You can try out any color combination looks on the LP SmartSide Home Visualizer here.
