Tips on Designing Your Roof with Landscape in Mind
Taking cues from the outdoors is a clever way to style up your roof. It allows you to establish your home’s connection with your landscapes. When done right, it can make your home blend well in the environment while standing out on its own. As one of the most trusted roofing companies in the area, Kroll Construction shares some tips on pulling it off.
Contrast or Complement with Colors
Pick a hue that helps create continuity between your home and its hardscapes, such as stone sidewalks and pavers. It can be tricky to base the color of your shingles on trees because they change in appearance as the year goes on. On the other hand, brick siding would look the same no matter what. Don’t match the color of one of your hardscapes to avoid making the color scheme seem dull. Choose a hue of a slightly different shade instead.
Attract with Textures
The texture of your roof adds visual weight to your home’s exterior design. As you pay homage to your landscapes with colors, an attention-grabbing texture would make your roof shine on its own. As one of the few Owens Corning®-certified roofing contractors in the state, Kroll Construction gives you access to the premium TruDefinition® Duration® Shingles. Other than their rich, long-lasting hues, they play with the eye with multiple-granule shadowing. They feature dramatic details to bestow your new roof head-turning textural quality.
Connect with Lines and Shapes
Even when you find a matching color and texture, you still need to accentuate the connection through lines and shapes. If you have rectangular design elements in your outdoor spaces, like a staggered-edge stone patio, choosing the same style for your roofing shingles can create a seamless look.
