When undertaking home improvement, most homeowners start by updating various interior components, like remodeling the kitchen, changing out the floors or adding new rooms. Talk to any realtor, however, and they will tell you that most of your home’s value is in the curb appeal.That’s why if you’re looking to replace your windows, you should pay close attention to how their designs match up with the rest of your exterior, particularly its largest component: your roof. Renewal by Andersen® of Connecticut shares handy tips to help you choose the right design.
Balance shape with symmetry. Study the material and slope of your roofing system closely and base your decision on your findings. For instance, slightly pitched metal roofs look good with sleek-framed windows, such as sliding and casement. Together, their neat lines can add depth and highlight your home’s aesthetics from the curb.
For steeper roofs, however, you may want to pair them with double-hung windows to add more character to your exterior. If you have a gable-type of the roof, you can pair it with specialty windows for a well-proportioned arrangement.
Pick a color based on the visual effect you want to achieve. When you’ve picked out an appropriate window style according to your roof’s design, it’s time to choose a color palette. Most of the time, homeowners choose a window frame color that contrasts with their roof to make it stand out. That’s not always the case though.
Brighter window and roofing combinations have begun popping up, especially in sunny areas. Whatever palette you choose, be sure to always stick to the visual effect you have in mind.
