Fresh Color Palettes for Metal Roofs

At the turn of the century, metal roofing exploded in popularity in residential construction due to its many benefits such as being lightweight and long lasting as well as hail and fire resistant. On top of that, it can enhance the appearance of almost any home style, including modern, ranches, farmhouse, Cape Cod and more.

Selecting Metal Roof and Siding Color Combinations

Since a metal roof can be painted any color, it can be overwhelming to determine the best metal roof and siding color combinations. Before we dive into a few of our favorite color combinations, it’s important to consider a few aspects that will impact your home’s color palette.

First, the style of your home will likely help narrow down color choices with modern styles often sticking to a black and white color palette and more traditional styles incorporating variations of reds and oranges.

Next, you’ll need to determine if you want to match or contrast your siding and roof colors. A survey of current metal roof and siding color combinations suggests that most homeowners go with contrasting roof and siding colors—you’ll typically see homes with either a dark metal roof and light siding color or the other way around. While contrasting colors are known for making a bold statement, matching colors should not be overlooked as they create a subtle beauty.

The Best Metal Roof and Siding Color Combinations

To help get your design wheels turning, we put together a few metal roof and siding color combinations that look particularly stunning when paired together.

Copper Roofs

For a copper color roof, consider neutral colors such as black and white as well as shades of tan and brown to accentuate the bronze color throughout the entire exterior of the home.

Gray Roofs

For a light gray metal roof, white is a great option for those looking for a more subtle beauty. Add more contrast to your home by selecting a darker gray or black siding.

Red, Orange or Green Roofs

Consider painting your metal roof a brighter color—such as a shade of red, orange or green—to make a bold statement. Pair a bold roof with a neutral siding color and let the roof do the talking.
