One of the benefits of choosing metal roofing is design flexibility. Metal roofing comes in a variety of colors and finishes so your customers can pick the perfect fit for their building project. When choosing metal roof colors, there are many factors to consider from energy efficiency to the style and location of the building.

Though the process of choosing a metal roof color may simple, it can be hard to know where to start. If you already have colors in mind, our Color Visualizer is an excellent tool to compare your different options. Once you have narrowed down your choices you can reach out to a local ABC sales representative to request a color chip for your pick.

Building Style & Surroundings

If you’re not sure what the building’s color scheme should be or the best roof color, there are a couple of starting points to help you choose the perfect color for your project.

If your customer is replacing their roof, consider existing siding, windows, doors and landscape. If you want your building to make a statement, choosing a bright or contrasting metal roof color can create visual interest. To create a more cohesive look, identify complementary colors to the building’s current color scheme and landscape around the building.

For new construction projects, select a metal roof color that fits with your exterior color scheme or building style. If your customer wants the building to fit a certain style you can look for colors that would match that style.

Evaluate neighboring homes or businesses to help decide. Choosing a neutral color such as tan, white or gray can help a building blend in with surrounding structures. To help a building stand out, consider dark metal roofing colors. To achieve an industrial look, many architects and designers go for darker shades such as gray and black. These shades can be paired with bright colors to create eye-catching contrast. Another popular trend is to pair the traditional look of steel panels with light, warm tones to create a modern feel.

Some Property or Homeowner’s Associations may have stringent color guidelines for residences in suburban or urban areas. With 22 residential colors to choose from, metal roofing can be quickly and easily approved by these authorities.
