Choosing a Roof Colour for a Brick HouseStapleford Roofing · Roofing · February 19, 2020
When it comes to choosing the right roof colour for a brick house, there are a number of things that you need to consider. In this article, the experts at Stapleford Roofing are going to look at the key considerations for those who are choosing the colour of their new roof.
When we say ‘brick houses’, it often conjures an image of a typical red brick building, but there are various colours of brick house around, and not every roof colour suits every brick colour, and vice versa. So, let’s run through the different types of brick houses and see which roof colours suit them best.
Roof colours for red brick houses
Roof tiles and walls must complement each other, and one tried and tested combination is a dark roof with a red brick house. There’s a pleasing contrast between the two styles – the fact it’s so widely seen around the world is testament to the quality of the look. If you have a red brick house, avoid roofs that have similar colours to the bricks themselves – this won’t work. You can go for white trim on your red brick house, though; it provides a nice contrast to the colour of the bricks and a dark roof without being distracting.
Roof colours for grey brick houses
Again, darker tones look fantastic with grey bricks. Depending on the type of brick you use, you may notice subtle changes in colour and hue across the brickwork, so make sure that any potential roof works in harmony with these colours. Black roofs look superb with grey houses – simple, clean and eye-catching.
For grey brick houses, the general rule is to opt for roof tones that emphasise and enhance the colour of the brickwork.
Roof colours for yellow brick houses
With regards to yellow brick houses, you can afford to go a little lighter with your choice of roof colour. Light grey works well; it particularly looks good on sunny days. If you’d like to be a little more adventurous, dark green roof tiles will also look good, particularly with yellows that tend towards golden hues. When it comes to guttering and fascias, white trim works well.
