A Easy Guide to Siding and Roofing Color Color Combinations

Choosing new siding colors can be daunting, but picking out the perfect roofing color to complement the siding colors can be even more difficult. When the final siding and roofing color decision has been made, you'll have a showstopping exterior you're proud of. Follow this simple guide on choosing the perfect roofing color for your Diamond Kote siding.

siding & roofing color options

Color theory is essential to creating the perfect siding and roofing color combination. Before you begin, you must decide if you want to be dramatic or subtle and if you want cool or warm tones. For a dramatic exterior, select high-contrasting siding and roofing colors, note they don't have to be bright and bold colors. And for a subtle exterior, choose colors that are similar and offer less contrast.


When selecting the overall tone of the siding and roofing, keep in mind the feelings they evoke. Cool colors are calm and refreshing, while warm colors are joyful and energetic. For a consistent look, having the same tone for the siding and roofing color is good practice. A good rule of thumb is to have the roofing color darker than the siding as it creates a balanced and harmonious exterior.
