Match Your Windows with Your Roof
Improve your home’s aesthetic and complement its overall design by coordinating your new windows with your roof. Not only will it boost your home’s curb appeal, but it will also improve the overall value of your home.
Most home exteriors consist of a field color and two accent colors. The field color is often considered your roof color, and the accent colors are your window trim and door color. Whether you have a specific vision in mind or need guidance, our design consultants can assist you in the color matching process.
For roofs of a lighter color, we often recommend a dark window trim such as black, dark bronze or cocoa bean. This adds eye-catching visual interest and produces a dramatic effect. For homes with a dark exterior, we recommend a classic white trim or pale shade. We can also create a monochromatic look for a modern design.
It’s also important to take into account the style of your new windows. A good rule of thumb is to base your windows on the roof’s material and slope. For example, if you have a steep roof, consider classic double-hung windows. Whereas if you have a slightly pitched metal roof, we recommend casement windows for their sleek frames and clean lines.
