Add Curb Appeal Starting with Your Roof

by Rachel Lyon, Direct from the Designers™’ Assistant Editorial Director

You expect your house to be a lasting investment, and you’ll want to make sound selections for the long-lasting parts of your home, too. Take, for instance, the roof—a critical part of your home’s structure that contributes to its overall longevity. Since roofs are only meant to be replaced after many decades, the aesthetic that you choose will be enduring. Chances are you chose your house based in part on looks, and you should complement it with a roof that does it justice. Here’s what you should consider as you look for the perfect roof.

This Multi-Width Shake roofing from Davinci Roofscapes is shown in Weathered Gray, which brings a beautiful weather-worn look to this coastal structure to help it fit in with its surroundings superbly.

Exterior Design Goals

It’s going to affect the overall impression of your home, so make sure your roof is adding to your design objectives. Do you think the look of handcrafted wooden shakes would enhance your home, or would the aesthetic of slate tiles add a classic touch? Rather than settling for the most common shingles, check out the highly varied and beautiful options that are available from DaVinci Roofscapes, which will really bring out the best in your house. Your roof is a large part of your home’s exterior that influences the big picture, so make it count!

If you have a woodland cottage, shake roofing would really tie it together visually. Have something more Mediterranean? A lighter colored slate that mimics clay tile would be perfect. No matter the style, there is a roofing solution that adds extra flair to your home.

The Canyon-VariBlend color of these Bellaforté Slate tiles gives a beautifully varied, authentic look to the roof, and it matches the home’s façade in turn.

Selecting Color

Once upon a time, you only had the most limited color options for your roof. Whether it was the natural color of the material or just what the manufacturers produced, you didn’t have much choice in the matter. Nowadays, you can choose the overall style independent of color, so you can personalize your roof to really make it match the vision you have for your home.

DaVinci Roofscapes takes color selection seriously. Their single-width and Bellaforté slates and shakes come in a range of authentic colors and feature the use of VariBlend® technology. The resulting blend of different shades produces an utterly natural look, and the palettes available are determined by the type of shake or slate in order to maintain the realistic appearance of the materials. Put your home in the hands of a trusted color expert and you will have a roof that does great things for its curb appeal.

For a little extra oomph that draws the eye, this home was outfitted with Single-Width Slate tiles in a custom color blend.
