by | Jul 10, 2024

Whether you are giving your roof a makeover because your home is up for sale or just keeping the look and or integrity of the home, your roof is an important issue and choice of roof paint colour is also important.

The Powerdrive Roof Painting team offers all of the options for a Perth roof restoration, including painting.

Painting the roof of your home can be a great idea for several reasons. The biggest advantage, however, can be saving money on your cooling costs and gives your home an aesthetic appeal from the street.

Here are some things to keep in mind when choosing the right roof colour for your roof:


The area you live in should play a role in determining the colour you choose for your roof. We recommend earth colours for the house in rural areas, subtle shades of blue or brown for houses near the coast, and something bright and eye-catching for a house in a more urban setting.

There are many hues in any colour range, so you may want to mix a few with the exterior of your home before making a final decision. While also keeping in mind Powerdrive offer a great exterior house painting service and carry our talents through inside with full interior house painting also doing a roof restoration in Perth, be sure to keep the heritage roof paint colour in mind. Certain neighbourhoods are classified as heritage areas such as Mount Lawley and there are generally specific guidelines for making changes to your home if you live in that area.

limited to just a few roof colours. We can help you find these options if you live in a historic neighbourhood.


As mentioned above, you want to match the colour of your roof to the outside of your home. Bricks, shutters, doors and everything else outside of your home. You want the roof paint colour to blend in and not stand out overbearingly. Use colour swatches to see how certain colours will look on your roof when combined with everything else in the house.

Choosing The Roof Paint Colour Try to Avoid

We recommend staying away from very bright or bold colours if you live in a wooded area or a area with a lot of foliage. Choosing a muted earth colour will allow your home to blend in with the surroundings and create a soothing colour palette.

In these areas, light colours don’t look as good. If your neighbourhood has a lot of neutral colours, your home will stand out (and not in a good way) if you choose a colour that is the opposite. You can now choose a colour for your Roof and don’t forget to ask us about our other services.
