If you find yourself stumped on how to add more pizzazz and personality to your home, turn your attention to your roof. In traditional America, a home’s exterior wasn’t meant to make a statement. Since then, colorful roofs have taken many neighborhoods by storm, providing the opportunity to express an owner’s personality while enhancing the home’s character.

Many homeowners these days are ditching their dreary brown, black and gray roofs and livening things up with strong color choices like purples, greens, reds and blues. Below, we’ll discuss some examples of daring roof design.

These homeowners decided to accentuate the framing of their home with a subtle, greenish-gray roof. The roof perfectly compliments the quirkiness of this home’s exterior.

The connected buildings of this home feature roofs of similar colors, but different materials. However, they all blend together quite nicely. On the left, a patchwork roof with gray and brown tones compliments the home’s light, neutral exterior. On the right, solar panels bring a sleek and modern feel to the farm.

The cardinal red roof and trim of this Wyoming home takes the meaning of “eye-catching” to the extreme. Our clients chose to make red the most prominent color here with several stone ledges and columns to break up the red and add texture.

The multi-colored solar panels on this roof are environmentally friendly and give this home a bit of a rustic feel. You can add a splash of energy efficiency and color to your home with this quirky look.

This home resembles a very elegant barn. The cream and beige walls and trim paired with a rosy-red metal roof provide a winning combination of modern and traditional.

If you’re interested in a metal roof, but aren’t quite ready to take the full plunge, try incorporating copper into just one portion of your roof for an interesting, unique look.
