With Eagle Roofing Products offering over 150 concrete roof tile color options, selecting a concrete roof tile for your home’s exterior can be intimidating. Not to mention the time, money and worry of curb appeal that also comes along with making this investment decision. Luckily, we have put together some tips that can help you successfully navigate the task of choosing your concrete roof tile color.
First, identify your home’s architectural style. This can lend some guidance as to what color families will pair best. For example, a terracotta colored tile may not be the best fit for a Modern or Contemporary home, but would nicely complement a traditional Spanish architectural style. Your neighborhood can also serve as a great resource. Perhaps there are homes in your development that are similar to yours, providing inspiration and visualization of color schemes.
You’ll also want to consider existing elements that will serve as a base to build upon, such as stone, brick, pavers and paint. These elements will likely already have some hues that you should either include in your roof color or take into consideration when making the decision. Ignoring these elements and selecting whichever roof tile color is most popular in your region at the time, when it does not fit into your existing color scheme, can result in poor curb appeal and costly future renovations in attempt to make them all coincide.
Once you reach the point in the process to where you’ve narrowed down your possible concrete roof tile color to 2-3 options, obtain samples from your local Eagle Account Representative or Eagle Design Center. Take them home to compare to your existing exterior colors in person and view the samples outdoors at different times of the day to ensure you purchase the color that best suits your home. You can then notify your roofing contractor or builder, they will place an order for the tile, and you will have a new durable, aesthetically stunning concrete tile roof that you can enjoy for years to come.
