When it comes to picking the right color it really depends on a couple of things. If you are like some people, they are trying to match the color of their shutters or trying to create a contrast to the color of their house. Some people are concerned about the roof fading over time. Although a quality roofing paint will last a long time, a dark color will change more noticeable over time compared to a newly manufactured panel of the same color. This is important if you are planning on adding on to your house at a later date. A lighter color metal roof will not show as bad, but will show dirt more than a darker roof if not washed by an occasional cleaning with a water hose or rain shower.
The second thing to consider is that lighter color metal roofing paints reflect more of the suns rays away from the house and thus lower your energy demand during peak times. A white roof or a lightstone roof will reflect more of the suns rays than a cocoa brown or a forest green roof. But at the end of the day you don’t want to put a green roof on a red house so you have to take these things into consideration but they shouldn’t detract from making an attractive choice either.
