Exterior Color Schemes With Aged Cedar Roof
The process DaVinci Roofscapes uses to create the Nature Crafted Collection results in colors that are versatile, natural, and a bit rustic. Aged Cedar has the patina of shakes that have been protecting a home for many years.
There are a warmth and depth that up until now hasn’t been able to be duplicated in a new product. With Aged Cedar or any color in DaVinci line, once installed anyone would believe the roof is real wood, not a much longer lasting and more durable polymer roof.
Warm neutral colors always work with cedar and are especially nice with Aged Cedar. Espresso rather than black marries the color palette to the colors in the roof. For the front door, any blue – deep, medium or light – that appeals to you create an eye-catching focal point.
Gray, always a popular choice for the main exterior color, is paired with two shades of green for a nature-based yet sophisticated color scheme.
Taupe, tan and beige are all classic colors to pair with cedar. This taupe, beige and brown feel right at home under an Aged Cedar roof. Keeping the colors toned down creates a cohesive look with an aged roof. The front door is no exception. While the color can be bold take the newness off with a bit of gray mixed in. A rustic red is a better fit than a bright fire engine red.
Cedar shakes have always been popular in coastal communities. To keep the seaside vibe, a lighter scheme of might be just what you have in mind. A not-too-bright white together with an unexpected combination of yellow-green and blue-green is fresh and relaxing.
Our idea of the perfect exterior color scheme is one that fits into its surrounding yet is so beautiful that it stands out and makes you take notice. This is one of those schemes. The soft, warm gray exterior and tonal trim are set off by the deep, warm gray and plum accent colors. People will take a few extra seconds staring as they try to figure out exactly what makes this scheme so striking.
