Metal roofing is known for its long lifespan, cost-effectiveness and versatility. It comes in a wide selection of colors, finishes and styles, making it a challenge to pick the best one for your business or structure. ——————————————– CONTINUE READING ——————————————–Here are some items to consider when choosing a metal roof color. Paint Finish QualityA quality paint finish will make your roof more resistant against harsh outdoor elements. It will also help in maintaining your roof’s good appearance. Go for a paint finish that’s been treated with a special acrylic resin that blocks ultraviolet (UV) light. This finish will prevent early fading, corrosion, rust and water infiltration. For an additional layer of protection, you can also have different types of coatings and sealants applied to your roof. Your Building’s ExteriorChoose a roof color that contrasts with the exterior walls to make your building stand out. If you’re going for a more classic look, then you can pick complementary colors. Bare metals, such as galvalume, stainless steel, aluminum and copper, will give a structure a more modern and distinct look. You can also consult a skilled roofing contractor to help you determine which roof color would complement your exterior. Energy EfficiencyThe roof color you’ll choose will not just have an impact on your building’s overall appearance, but also on your energy costs. Lighter roof colors reflect more solar heat than dark-colored ones. If you live in a warm climate, you can benefit from a white, light bronze, beige, light green or blue metal roof. You can save up to 30% on your monthly energy bills with a light-colored roof.For reliable residential and commercial roof replacement services, turn to Scro’s Roofing Company.
