Beyond just protecting a structure’s interior and exterior, roofs could play a role in helping to regulate a building’s internal temperature and surrounding environment. However, being a part of the building structure, which is as important as its foundation, roofs also play a large role in lending aesthetic qualities to the design of the building.


The aesthetics of a steel-coated roof involve both having the right material, texture and appearance. And apart from that, the overall functionality of a pre-painted galvanized steelroof is as important as its beauty.

A roof’s aesthetics, namely, how one could blend the colour of the metal roofing with the house or building structure is very important. There are a few factors which we should consider when selecting the ideal colour for your pre-painted galvanized steelroof.

1. Matching the building matters
Firstly, one has to consider how to create a balanced look when fitting the “crowning glory”, the roof with the rest of the building and the compounds. This would require considerations of the building’s general appearance and other colours which are already found on the building and surroundings. Look at the colour of the walls, doors, windows and even the landscape. One good tip is to use contemporary colours which would also blend in to create a more homogenous (read: more monochromatic) colour scheme which often results in a streamlined look invoking elegance and harmony.

On the other hand, instead of just blending colours to create a coordinated look, having some contrasts between the roof and wall texture or colours could also create an aesthetically pleasant effect on the building’s appearance.

2. Whether the weather warrants it
The next factor which influences the choice of roof colours would be the environment or weather. In tropical countries or places in warmer climates, light coloured roofs are preferred. For cooler climates, roofs with darker colours would be more practical. This is because lighter colours tend to deflect the heat, making it bounce off, while darker colours tend to absorb heat.

3. Style Considerations
Be it a contemporary , modern, or traditional architectural design, steel roof colours can be chosen carefully to match any style of building. Brownish or burgundy toned metal roofs would suit the Meditarranean style, for instance or darker grey tones for Tudorian building designs. Roof colours are the most versatile when it comes to designs according to branding or themes. One of our clients opted for vibrant roofs for their modern-styled retail and shopping space with boxy designs in Johor.

Speaking of colours, Primero realcolor® would make the ideal choice due to a few of its excellent features.
