Fresh Color Palettes for a Brown Roof

Choosing the exterior elements of your home in the proper order can help you get the aesthetic you want for your home. Every exterior element brings color that impacts the whole look of the home, but how do you determine which colors work well together?

If you have a brown roof on your home, it may be dark, medium or light brown. Beyond that, brown can have undertones of red, orange or yellow. You’ll also find that some browns are slightly grayed—like weathered wood. We’ve developed carefully curated color palettes that will make it easier to choose perfect complements for your roof, stone and brick. And if you want to explore more siding color combinations, visit the LP® SmartSide® Home Visualizer, our siding visualizer tool.

This home features the same light cream color on the siding, garage and trim, while dark brown complements it on the windows, gutters, door and shutters.
