The Color Wheel (Like Wheel Of Fortune but with more color): The color wheel provides you with an easy to understand visual representation of which colors will look great together. The 12 colors on the color wheel consist of primary, secondary and tertiary colors. Primary colors are red, yellow and blue. Meanwhile, secondary colors are a combination of two primary colors which results in purple, orange and green. Tertiary colors include amber, vermillion, magenta, violet, aqua and lime-green. You can determine which colors create visual harmony by their position on the wheel.

Color Temperature: You also need to understand color temperature. Different colors have different effects on your home. For instance, warm colors like reds, yellows and oranges bring a sense of liveliness and intimacy to a space. They are vibrant and dynamic. Cool colors like greens, blues and purples, on the other hand, can make a room feel calm, relaxed and serene. We can help you select a shade that highlights your home’s best features and goes along with your HOAs guidelines.

Complementary Colors: Complementary colors sit opposite each other on the color wheel and look great together. Generally, one color acts as the dominant shade while the other is an accent. Keep this in mind when choosing your roof’s color. The color of your siding, doors, or windows can be your guide in choosing a complementary roof color. Instead of choosing the color directly opposite the base shade, you choose the two shades on either side of the opposite color. Also be aware of what is and what is not allowed in your neighborhood.
