Designing your home is an exciting and fun experience as you discover the multitude of design ideas at your disposal. The colour and texture of your roof will enhance the particular style of elevation you are trying to achieve. Bristile Roofing has six tips to assist you to design the perfect elevation.
- Get good advice and don’t rush your decision
There’s nothing like getting hands-on when choosing product and talking face-to-face with the experts. With a number of Design Centres in Perth, we’re ready to help, with product displays, colour advice, design ideas as well as insider tips and tricks.
- Understand that there is a difference between concrete and clay roof tiles.
Each has their advantages. Clay, for example, is one of the only roofing materials where the colour does not fade over time.
- Consider the whole roof space
Used together, sarking, insulation and ventilation can significantly reduce the amount of energy required to heat and cool your home. This saves you money on energy bills and ensures comfortable living conditions all year round.
- The look
Think about maintaining the architectural look of the area you live in and the era of your new home design style. In the more established suburbs, clay was almost always used and is still the best material to ensure your roof looks fantastic for years to come.
- Colour choice
Choose the colour of your new roof based on the complementary colours of the rest of its exterior.
- The design rule
Designers have used a scale known as “60, 30, 10” for years. It’s simply a definition for the proportions of a design space with the largest proportion providing the greatest impact. In the case of your homes exterior the 60% is for walls, 30% to the roof, and 10% is for fascia, gutter, windows and doors.
