With an eye to remaining on top of current design trends, California-based Eagle Roofing Products has launched its first ever Color of the Year and Color of the Month series to highlight concrete tile portfolio offerings that will complement popular paint preferences and architectural styles, while embracing “transformative times.”
A roof can make up to 40-50 percent of a structure’s exterior, playing a big role in overall appearance and curb appeal. “In addition to providing shelter and protection, a roof is a major design feature,” affirms Eagle Roofing Director of Marketing Lissette Pamplona. “Different shapes, styles and roofing materials can make the appearance of an entire building feel different. So does color. Color evokes emotion and meaning, and creates harmony between interior and exterior architectural elements.
“At Eagle, we understand that. We offer over 150 ranges and blends that will undoubtedly match any number of color schemes and finishes; however we also know that this many options can be a bit overwhelming. That is why we created our Color of the Year and Color of the Month series. We wanted to give our customers insight on what’s currently on trend while providing a little inspiration.”
The 2022 Color of the Year, Brown Gray Range, is a nature inspired hue that exemplifies organic living at its finest, she adds. A subtle combination of subdued brown pigment and shades of gray, Brown Gray Range draws on natural elements like earth, wood and stone—signifying a safe and soothing presence. The fully-adaptable, attractive neutral is offered in multiple concrete roof tile profiles to suit both classic and contemporary architecture as well as a variety of color palettes.
“Brown Gray Range is interesting and inviting, and induces a sense of calm, comfort and balance, which is indicative of what people are craving in these uncertain times,” observes Lissette. “This mix of two popular neutrals creates a roofscape that building professionals, designers and homeowners will love. The ease of how Brown Gray Range pairs with a wide range of monochromatic and bold palettes, as well as exterior finishes such as wood and stone makes for a beautiful, fluid design.”
Eagle Roofing chose the contemporary Sierra Madre to kick off this year’s Color of the Month. Influenced by timeless style with a modern twist, Sierra Madre is one of the producer’s sought-after and multifaceted colors as medium and dark shades of gray have grown increasingly popular when it comes to exterior décor. The charcoal hues with black streaking are a fitting foundational base that gives opportunity and options to create the perfect exterior.
