Choosing the Right Gutter Color for Your Home

Choosing the Right Gutter Color for Your Home

Apr 26, 2019

Your gutters are the unsung heroes of your roofing system, collecting water, leaves and debris and allowing them to flow away from your roof and property through the downspout. Roofing contractors can help if a replacement is in order, but what color gutter should you choose? Consider the following:

Brown Tones

Brown tones like light Buckskin and Beaver brown to darker Royal and Musket brown can blend seamlessly to the roof or to the external color of the property. These colors also closely match most trims around windows and doors. The brown and beige colors work well with traditional and rustic architecture as well as with contemporary homes.

White and Gray Tones

Roofing contractors typically use light to dark grays or black to complement the slate roofs of Cape Cod homes. It’s visually appealing to make gutters in a contrasting white or off-white colors for a classic feel or soft grays or neutral sand tones for a more blended feel. 

Red and Blue Tones

Red gutters work well with brick buildings as well as with red tiled roof in southwest architecture popular in Texas. Dark blue gutters are a good match with gray or dark blue exteriors while colonial blue is often seen on traditional homes.

Find inspiration from your neighborhood or ask your roofing contractor for the best color to use.
