Common roof colour based
on the roof type

With changing architectural styles and technology there are more roof colour choices available than ever before. As well as colours, roof materials come in different profiles. For example shingles come in a number of profile designs dependent on the manufacturer, tiles come in high or low profile, and metal roofs come in different seam designs. It is best to consult your architect, or contractor, or review the manufacturer’s website.

Below are some of the most common options, these examples are for reference only, consult with your contractor and roofing material supplier.
