Springing Forward with Your Sustainable Roofing Decision

Warmer weather, sunny days and the return of Daylight Savings Time all mean that Springtime has arrived!

Top Down ColorNow that the snow has melted and your yard is starting to green up, take a good look at your home exterior. Start at the top, with your roof. If this past winter took a toll on your roof, and you’ve decided it’s finally time to replace your worn-out roof, then DaVinci Roofscapes can help.

We have a variety of resources available to download for free on our DaVinci website. Start by downloading the ebooks developed by color expert Kate Smith of Sensational Color.

The FRESH Home Exterior Colors guide talks about the FRESH approach to replacing your roof, which begins with identifying the fixed features of your home, regional colors that influence your home’s style, your environment and surroundings, the style of your home and your “have to use” colors. Kate provides color palettes, tips and ideas in this booklet that addresses all the visible products on your home exterior.

Next, download the FRESH Color Schemes for Your Home Exterior guide. This booklet discusses the different color combinations for a variety of home styles, such as Colonial, Ranch, Victorian and Spanish Mission. For each style home, Kate provides top-down insights on the colors that work best for the roof, trim, windows and entry door.

After reviewing the ebooks, make your next stop the Color Designer tool at the DaVinci website. Here you can mix-and-match different colors of our composite shake or imitation slate roofing tiles. The palette is limitless as you develop different custom blends for your luxury roof.
