What is the Most Popular Metal Roof Color?

The most popular metal roof color is green. If you search for the most popular metal roof colors, you'll find varied results. But here in Virginia, we've found that green is chosen and sold the most by our team! The second most colored metal roof color would be black! But wait, doesn't black attract the sun and make your roof hot? Unlike shingles, metal roofs have highly reflective properties in the materials which reflect the sun's rays. So a black metal roof is still a great choice to match your home!The longer your roof is exposed to direct sunlight, the more heat your roof will absorb. But with correct insulation in your home, less heat will be able to get into your home through the roof. A metal roof and even black metal roofs are still a great option and shouldn't stop you from choosing this popular metal roof color.

How Long Does Metal Roofing Colors Last?

At Cenvar Roofing our metal roofs come with a 40 year paint warranty, so you'll be protected from fading for at least 40 years! Don't be fooled by some search results that say you'll have to paint your roof after ten years.

What Color Metal Roof Fades the Least?

The color metal roof that fades the least is a shade that naturally withstands the elements. Opting for lighter colors such as tans, grays, or whites can naturally minimize fading compared to more vibrant metal roof colors, including the four popular options mentioned earlier. If your priority is a low-maintenance metal roof, an unpainted barn-style appearance might be the most suitable choice for your home. By doing so, you can ensure a roof that fades the least over time.

Choosing the Right Metal Roof Colors and Styles  

There are plenty of online guides when looking for combinations of metal roof colors for your home. As you can see in the pictures above, all the homes are different styles and colors. The green metal roof in the image above is a green standing seam metal roof; another is a red screw-down metal roof. Both homes have white siding but are different builds of homes. There are different choices of metal roof colors and styles to choose from when it comes time to pick a color. We've also got a copper-colored metal roof option to help your home stand out from the rest!
