Your home’s curb appeal is determined by many factors, one of the most important components being the roof. The style of the topmost layer on your building can make or break the looks of your entire home – here is how:
- The material – shingle and metal are the two most common materials used on roofs, slate, clay tile, wood shingle and stone being high-end materials that confer a special, elegant appearance to the building underneath;
- The color of the material – the shade of the roof can make the appearance of the entire building harmonious or it can completely disrupt the design. Fortunately, most roofing materials are available in a wide range of colors, allowing you to choose the hue that works best with the color of your exterior walls, the trim, the window frames and the entrance door;
- The roof design – the shape and the size of the roof is also a very important factor that can pull the appearance of the entire building together or it can ruin the harmony. Modern buildings look great with flat or shed roofs, while traditional buildings look better if the roof on top features classic style, with a gable roof, a mansard roof or a dormer roof. Some of the roof designs for Longmont roofing are some of the most durable and attractive materials that are used.
