Your roof is one of the most important part of your not only does it protect your home but it is a huge part of the aesthetic home.  ensure that your home looks beautiful.

1.     Where do you  live?  When choosing a roof color for your home – take in consideration your climate. A light color roof deflects sunlight and help keep temperatures down in hotter climates, – some studies state the percentage is so minuscule  (2%) you don’t feel the difference . Hey! I am from Florida – I will take the 2%.

If you are going with aesthetics then –  a dark gray or black roof will look good with a gray or blue house while. A beige or yellow home looks great with a desert tan.


2.   Your architectural style – a dark color will make your home appear smaller, conversely a light color gives the appearance of a larger home


3.  Do you have a BOLD or QUIRKY  –  Personality, let it show  and pick an unusual color combination for your home. Check out the new Owens Corning Color   

Just a word of caution , when picking roof color, think about how long you plan on living in the home and resale value. If you are not thinking of living there for a long time, pick a safe neatral color and maybe upgrade to a Metal Roof.


4. Neighborhood and Community     Some Homeowners association have specific requirements for the type of roof that the home owner can install.

My Florida roofing is an amazing company to deal with. The recently redid our roof from shingles to standing seem metal roof. It looks amazing. I got roughly about 10 quotes from the top roofers in Indian river county and they help educate me and showed me different options of material's for the new roof. Their team came in and stripped reroof the entire home in about week to do great weather. They strip and relapse before any rain could hit the exposed material. Rene and Maxine are such a pleasure to deal with. The are very upfront about everything and every detail that you speak with Rene about is backed up with written documentation so you know and see exactly what you are paying for. They also show and explain the different options to add on if you choose to. They are very quick to respond and answer any questions you may have in a timely matter. No doubt in my mind did I make the right decision going with My Florida Roofing. I recommend and would you use them again for any future projects. Again thank you Rene, Maxine and all of the team at My Florida Roofing for making a new roof process so quick and painless

The Reyes' were very friendly, accommodating and professional. Rene visited the site often to check on the work. The crew was professional friendly and efficient. We had our roof replaced, asphalt shingles to metal, almost a year ago now and still marvel at the look. The color matches perfectly with the house trim. I highly recommend MyFloridaRoofing.
