What's The Perfect Color For Your Roofing?

Your roofing contributes to around 40% of your home's frontage. The right color can really bring out the aesthetic appeal of your home's largest structure, so it's important that you pick the right one. In this post, West Side Roofing Co. discusses how to pick the perfect color for your roof.

Perfect Color Roofing for Home | Westside Roofing

Shingle Color and Architectural Style

As a general rule, make sure the color for your shingles should be appropriate to your home's architectural design. Some roof colors only apply to a certain home design, after all. Mediterranean-style homes, for example, look better with orange color roofing.

If you have a brick house, our roofers suggest you base your roofing color on that. The color of your roofing can be changed, but not the bricks. The roofing color should blend well with the color of your brick.

Know When to Get Dark or Light Colored Roofing

Light colored roofing is generally the better choice, because lighter colors reflect sunlight while darker colors absorb it. This doesn't necessarily mean that you should always get lighter colored roofing. If your siding and exterior wall covering have light colors, then your roofing should have a darker shade.

To keep your home cool, though, you can always get a lighter shade of dark color. For instance, if you want blue, you can always pick a lighter shade so your roofing reflects some sunlight away from your home.

View Your New Color In All Types of Light

Finally, it's always a good idea to check the color of your new roofing in all types of light. Check out your new shingle color in both the shade and when direct light is striking it; that way, you have a better idea if the color you pick is really right for your home.

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof

How Your Attic Can Impact Your Roof One of the first things we look at when we go to repair or replace any roof is to take a look at the attic. The attic is the foundation of the roof, and if it has any issues, the longevity of your roof is at stake. The Importance of Proper Attic Ventilation Attic ventilation is a crucial component of any roofing job. Without adequate ventilation, your roof is at risk for mold, and no one wants mold in their house. The first step when we meet with the homeowner is to go up in their attic space and determine whether the situation is agreeable or if it needs some work. While in the attic, we also look at the condition of the wood. If the wood itself is in poor condition, we may have to make some repairs there as well. For example, a rotting attic ceiling is not a good foundation for any roof, new or old. It can be hard for some homeowners to hearthat they have mold in their attic, but it is important to know if it is there because it is unhealthy

Do You Have aLeaking Chimney orAnother Chimney Issue? Is a Leaking Chimney a Roofing Issue? One of the most frequent calls that we get here at West Side Roofing is about chimneys. It is not uncommon that over time a chimney will begin to leak, especially brick chimneys. Because a chimney is part of the roof, people will assume that we are equipped to fix that leak. Though this leakage is usually attributed to a masonry issue, we can still help identify and inform you about why this happens. We speak the masonry language, but we are not equipped to make those repairs. What is Chimney Flashing? However, sometimes there is a chimney issue that we can help you with, and that is with the flashing along the bottom of the chimney where it meets the roof. In the first example in the video, you can see that there were some pretty large cracks in the actual brick of the chimney which we recommended the owner have a mason come out and fix that. But their flashing was also coming apart as
