There are many reasons why people would love to have a metal roof. One surprising reason is many of us love the sound of the rain that falls upon the tin roof. It creates a soothing sound that you can usually find in a meditation app or a white noise machine.
On top of that, a metal roof is also durable and long-lasting. Yes, it is indeed more expensive than other roofing materials. However, a metal roof is considered eco-friendly too. It is also energy efficient.

The great thing is, metal roof always comes in a neutral color. It means you can easily combine it with any house exterior color.

The open space is delivered by tall windows and doors, pocket doors, and a vaulted ceiling. Moreover, the designer decided to use a white color palette and a pop of color to make this small house look bigger and feel like a home.
This farmhouse features Hardie Board and Batten siding as well as metal roofing.
The porch looks unique with a tabby base and a tabby porch surface with brick edging. Yes, the tabby porch surface is a bit hard to walk on. It is indeed a bit bumpy and scratchy.

What a pleasant color combination. Combining yellow and green is a nice idea if you want to make your house look warm and inviting.

The metal roof is Englert Kynar Ultra-Cool Low Gloss in medium bronze finish. The medium bronze color looks amazing, combined with a yellow and green exterior.
This roof doesn’t feature gutters. Instead, there is a drip edge that was smartly planted. This drip edge is meant to deal with water runoff during the summer, fall, and spring. And during the winter, the deeper overhangs could push throw away the snow to protect the house. If hung correctly, actually, copper gutters might be more appropriate here.
On top of the metal roof, there is a protruding chimney that accentuates the whole look. It is a wood enclosure completed with clearance for the boiler exhaust and stove pipe. The chimney is also painted in yellow color, similar to the siding.
So, what do you think about the color combinations shown above? Which one do you prefer?
From the pictures above, we can conclude that a neutral color palette is often used for the siding and metal roof. However, to avoid looking too plain and simple, there is a touch of bright color as an accent there to balance the whole look.
If you want to mimic one of the color combinations above, make sure to do the color test first. Keep in mind that the colors in the pictures might be different in real life. It won’t hurt to discuss with the color professional or discuss it with your home designer before choosing one specific paint.
Good luck with your home remodeling!
