What Colors Do Metal Roofs Come in and How Do I Choose the Right Color for My Project?

Color Swatches

One of the fun parts of choosing metal roofing or siding for a project is picking a color. With metal siding and roofing, you aren’t limited to the color of the type of metal you choose. You can select from a wide variety of colors and choose different colors for your roof, siding, and interior walls. If you’ve been wondering “what colors do metal roofs come in?”, we’ve laid out our top colors and tips for choosing a color.

What Colors Do Metal Roofs Come In?

There are many metal roof color options, so it primarily comes down to your personal preferences when you choose a color. At Great Northern Metal Company, we offer three types of color styles:

  • Painted Colors – Classic painted colors give you a variety of colors to choose from, so you can either go with a neutral color or mix it up with a vibrant pop of color.
  • Metallic Colors – Metallic colors are very versatile. They can help ground colorful building syles, add an industrial feel, or modernize a home’s design.
  • Weathered Colors – Weathered colors a great for adding a rustic or farmhouse touch to any design project.
  • Bare Metal – Bare metal is a nonpainted color option that offers a natural metal finish. Our bare metal options include Galvanized, Galvalume, A606 Weathering Steel, and Bonderized.

Each of these color styles can fit into any design aesthetic, so you can have fun picking a color that matches your style. If you want to see what color options Great Northern Metal Company has in store, visit our Metal Roofing Colors page.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Metal Roof Color

Complementary Colors

The colors currently on your property can impact your color choice. You want all the elements of your property to blend well together, so take a close look at your property for dominant colors. For example, if you have bright red walls on your building, you would want to complement the color of the roof with the color of the walls, perhaps with a neutral color like white or gray. You can play with different color combinations to pick a palette that matches your vision best.

Neighborhood Restrictions

If you live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association (HOA), you will need to consult with the board first before you replace your roof or siding. Every HOA has different rules and regulations, and many of these rules apply to the colors of paint and roofing allowed in your neighborhood. Before you start your project, get your HOA’s approval on your roofing and color choice.

Energy Efficiency

If you are deciding between bare metal or painted metal roofing or siding, energy efficiency is important to keep in mind. What’s great about painted products is that no matter the color, they are all energy efficient. Painted metal roofing and siding products reflect UV rays rather than absorb them, making them a great choice if you want to save money on your monthly electricity bill. Bare metal roofing, on the other hand, is not as energy efficient as painted products. 

Your Building’s Resale Value

A neon green roof may not be the best choice of color for your building if you are thinking about selling in the future. Timeless metal roof colors and styles increase the value of your building and make it an attractive choice for potential buyers. Consult with one of our metal roofing specialists for an expert’s opinion on what color choice may enhance the value of your property.
