WINDOW FRAME COLORS THAT GO WELL WITH DARK ROOFS

When choosing window frame colors, the appearance of your roof is one of the main things you should consider. This is especially important when your roofing system still has decades left in its perceived service life. Considering that it represents a significant portion of your home’s curb appeal, it should dictate the look of your windows and their accompanying trim.

Window Frame Colors That Go Well With Dark Roofs

If your roof has a darker shade, Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis recommends these hues for your double-hung, bay, bow, sliding, picture, specialty and casement windows:

Pastel Gray

Soft, gray windows and trim go well with dark, gray roofs. The harmony between them feels natural since they have different shades of the same color. The softness of the pastel allows the dark roof to shine while subtly highlighting wall openings. This visual effect is more pronounced when the siding is relatively cheery.

The best part is that gray is both trendy and timeless. It wasn’t long ago when it was all the rage; home designers couldn’t get enough of it and experimented with its different shades. Its popularity may have cooled down a little bit, but it’s not like other fads that quickly turned irrelevant. As a neutral color, gray can make energy-efficient windows fashionable for long periods.

White

White can mesh with literally any hue, but it comes alive when placed next to dark colors. It creates a striking contrast between the windows and siding panels. It can also help tone things down, fighting against the darkness of the color palette to keep the eye from getting overwhelmed.

Black

Like white, black appears stunning anywhere, but it pops out when the background is light-colored. It ties windows with the gray roof and boldly separates them from the bright-hued siding. It can be energizing and produce an illusion of richer architecture. Savvy windows installation specialists would attest that black is currently trending, which can instantly update the look of your home.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
