I'm getting my house rendered and Im finding it difficult to find what colour to paint a newly rendered house with orange/redish tiled roof ? I can repaint the gutters to suit but I'm not too sure what paint colour would be best to match and look modern as it was a 70s house.
I would love to hear your suggestions or if you know of any houses in your area that have a reddish/orange tiled roof.
Thanks in advance!maree_bradrossMember@maree_bradrossJoin Date: 2007Post Count: 401
Is getting the roof resprayed an option?bluemoneyParticipant@bluemoneyJoin Date: 2009Post Count: 3maree_bradross wrote:Is getting the roof resprayed an option?
I thought about this idea… but just thought about the cost of it and also having to get the roof resprayed every 5 years or so ??CazziePParticipant@cazziepJoin Date: 2009Post Count: 24

My 10c worth: you're probably stuck with painting the main building a beige colour,and then painting the guttering another colour. The Colorbond website has a facility where you can look at a pic of a house with a certain colour roof, and recolour the other parts of the house to see how it would look. The default colour combination they have is beige building, and gunmetal grey gutters. http://www.colorbondcolours.com/go/bsl-colour-centre-swatch/headland . Try the following colour combination:
Roof colour – Headland (a reddish colour)
Gutters & Fascia – Bushland (a dark grey colour)
Downpipes & Garage – Classic Cream
Eaves – Gulf (a dark grey colour)
Wall & Mailbox – Chamois (a creamy colour)Jacqui MiddletonParticipant@jacmJoin Date: 2009Post Count: 2,539
Another nice combination is:
Wall – lariat or hacienda colour (sort of a tan colour)
Gutters & Fascia – Pale Eucalypt (a light "bush green" colour)
garage – classic cream
