Colorbond roofing is a popular choice among homeowners because of its durability and low maintenance requirements. With so many choices, choosing the right Colorbond roof colour is important because it will significantly improve the appearance of your home.
So, rather than delving straight into the various colour options, we’ll highlight some of the things to consider when selecting colour of Colorbond roofing for your Newcastle home.
When selecting a colour for Colorbond roofing installation, keep the architectural design of your home in mind. The roof is an important feature of any home and can significantly improve its visual appeal. Colorbond has curated a collection to suit all types of Australian homes, from traditional to modern. The paint colours are inspired by Australia’s natural colours and unique landscapes, making it easier to find the right colour for your home.
If you have a traditional house, our recommended picks from Colorbond colour palette are: Manor Red, Night Sky, Deep Ocean, Cottage Green, Classic Cream
For Contemporary houses, we recommend:
Ironstone, Terrain, Monument, Mangrove, Jasper
Permanent Fixtures in the House
If you have some permanent fixtures in your home, it is a good idea to match the colour of your roof to them as well. These fixtures can be made of wood, brick, cement, or a variety of other materials. Try a brown roof colour if your home has brick accents. Roof colours for fibre-cement siding homes should be green, blue, or red. If you have a log or wood design, consider black, grey, brown, or green.
House Location is Important
Yes, the location of your home should be taken into account before deciding on a roof colour, but there is more to it. The most important factor is sunlight, which varies by region. The sunlight is cold and blue in northern Australia, while it is warm and reddish in the southern region. As a result, roof colours in the north and south may appear differently. Roof colours in the brown, red, and orange spectrum are appropriate for installing colorbond roofing in cities like Newcastle in the southern region, whereas homes in northern cities can use shades of blue to grey.
Colour of Your Home
It is most important to consider the overall colour scheme of your home. Here are some guidelines to consider:
If your house is beige to cream in colour, the best roof colours to choose are black, brown, grey, and blue.
If you have a brown house, you can choose between black, green, brown, and grey roof colours.
If you have a white house, you are in luck because any roof colour will complement it.
Restrictions from Homeowners Association or Similar
Unfortunately, your roof colour options may be limited if you live in an area governed by a Homeowner’s Association or Architectural Review Board. If this is the case, they usually have pre-set colour schemes that you must adhere to.
Check the rules and guidelines before choosing your roof colour to avoid fines or fees incurred from going against colour scheme rules.
