About Metal Roofing Colors, Paints, and Construction
For those unfamiliar with modern metal roofing systems, the term “metal roof” might conjure thoughts of bare tin roofs, uncoated and baking in the summer heat. The new reality couldn’t be further from the truth! Today’s metal roofing colors, coatings, and manufacturing make for systems that are both stunning and incredibly durable. What’s more, colored metal roof coatings provide energy efficiency and keep structures cooler than some traditional roofing materials. Metal roofing systems from Green Tree Metals check all of these boxes!

Popular Metal Roofing Colors
When it comes to the question of “Which metal roofing color to choose?” there are no wrong answers! Depending on your aesthetic preferences, there are several options. Like paint colors, however, neutrals (tans, whites, grays, blacks, and browns) tend to prevail in terms of popularity. Lighter neutrals offer a classic, timeless aesthetic, while darker colors lend a bold, modern feel. Others prefer a pop of color on their house, barn, or commercial structure—with options ranging from reds and greens to vivid blues.
Metal Roofing Color FAQs
Overall, builders and homeowners alike are realizing that colored metal roofs can be as beautiful as they are durable. In terms of longevity, coated metal roofs can last 50 years or more, withstanding harsh weather conditions (sun, rain, wind, snow, and even lightning strikes). And unlike other building materials, they are resistant to pests.
In terms of aesthetics, colored metal roofs can be plain and functional for industrial purposes or stylish, modern, and statement-making for residential and commercial purposes. The aesthetic of metal roofs—bold, industrial, and sleek—is in line with some of today’s hottest design and construction trends.
Back to the functional aspect, colored metal roofs often use energy-efficient coatings designed to keep buildings cooler. Their reflective properties can help lower cooling costs during hot summer months.
Finally, colored metal roofs are easy—in that they are relatively low maintenance. Regular inspections and cleaning are usually all that’s needed to keep them in excellent condition. What’s more, the protective finishes on colored metal roofs help resist fading and corrosion. Installation of metal roofing systems is typically quicker and more straightforward than some other roofing materials. This can help reduce labor costs and minimize disruption to your daily life during installation.
As mentioned, the combinations of colors, types, and applications of colored metal roofs can feel overwhelming. But there are a few key considerations:
- Aesthetic. Certain metal roof colors are used in conjunction with specific systems to achieve a particular look. For example, someone looking for a sleek, modern residential design might choose a black or slate color in a concealed fastener system (thanks to the seamless look they provide). Board & Batten is another common choice for an elevated design/look. That being said, some prefer the rustic, industrial look of an exposed fastener system.
- Use/Environment. From energy efficiency and insulation to durability and cost-efficiency, you likely have a hierarchy when it comes to priorities and goals for your roof. Consider the specific needs of your project when choosing a colored metal roof system.
- Budget. All metal roof systems are cost-efficient compared to most other options. Some, however, like Tuff Rib), are known to be more economical while others are slightly more expensive (typically concealed fastener metal roofing systems).
