Boundless colors for composite roofs

DaVinci boundless colors for composite
April 16, 2024 at 6:00 a.m.

By DaVinci Roofscapes.

Color can make a difference. See how external surroundings can influence the roof's color and maximize beauty.

Flowers aren’t the only colors blooming in the neighborhood these days. Look up. Roofs are looking more colorful. From shades of greens to all-out bright terra cotta, eye-catching roofing colors are trending across America. 

As international color expert Kate Smith notes in her story “From Basic to Boundless with Color and Design,” a home’s style and surroundings can influence the roof’s color. Of special importance is if there’s stone or brick elements in the home’s exterior.

“Stone and brick are traditional materials that add depth and interest to a home’s façade,” says Smith, chief color maven at Sensational Color. “Instead of solid, flat colors, they provide variegated shades that combine to create the color’s cast.

“The subtle color differences in brick and stone materials create a unique play of light on the surface, providing options for a wide range of exterior color schemes.”

View 60 intriguing color palettes in the free eBook Smith created, entitled FRESH Colors for Homes with Brick or Stone.

Slate Valley USA

When you’re thinking of adding those colors to the roof, you may be considering composite slate and shake products. One manufacturer, DaVinci Roofscapes, offers 49 standard colors, plus unlimited custom color options. 

DaVinci draws inspiration for many of its synthetic slate colors from a place called Slate Valley. Bordering New York and Vermont, this location close to Granville, New York is world-famous for its specially colored slate.

Here you’ll find natural tones of green, gray, gray-black, purple, red and mottled green-purple. Slate Valley is the only site in the world where this natural variety of colors is found.

Of course, natural slate is very heavy to put on homes. That’s why replicating the colors throughout pieces of lightweight composite tiles is so appreciated by homeowners and contractors. In addition, composites reduce maintenance issues along with the problems inherent to real slate, like cracking and splitting.

When it’s time for you to create a designer composite slate roof, remember that color can make a difference. If you’re eager to gain free professional insights from the expert, get some free advice. Just Ask Kate which authentic-looking color would look good on your next DaVinci roof!
