While gutter guards may not be the most stylish feature of your home, choosing the right colour gutter mesh can impact the overall aesthetic of your home. You want to go for a colour that compliments or blends in with the existing colour palette, rather than a colour that stands out too much. Though with so many colour options, it can be hard to narrow it down to one colour.
How to choose a gutter guard colour:
There are a few things to factor in to your gutter guard mesh colour decision to make sure you choose the best colour for your home.
Style of Your Home:
Consider the style and shape of your roof, and how much of your gutters are exposed. The majority of your gutters will not be viewable from ground level, but some areas may be visible due to sloping roof styles. Also take into account the style of your home and think about what colours would suit. A bolder colour choice is better suited to a more modern home, and neutral colours match classic and character homes.
Existing Colour Palette:
Your exterior colour palette is an important consideration, and if not taken into account, you can end up with a ghastly colour combination. If your exterior palette is based on neutral tones, a bold red gutter guard would probably not be a good look. Same goes when considering your surrounding environment and neighbouring houses. If you live in a rural area, natural coloured gutter guards can be a suitable option.
Council and Developer Regulations:
One other thing to consider is if there are any council regulations regarding colour palettes; some housing developments have strict rules about the number of colours you can include in your colour palette and the tones you use.
What Colour Gutter Guards Are Available?
There are many colour choices available that can easily be matched to your existing roof colour. The Colourbond Colour Chart is a great place to start. If you can’t find a match on the Colourbond Colour Chart, one can be sourced for you to ensure your gutters look exactly as you want them to.
