Roof Shingle Colors: How to Pick the Best One

Your roof can make up as much as half of your home’s exterior. So choosing a color for a new roof can feel like a daunting task! Here are a few key elements to keep in mind as you consider roofing shingle colors and which one will enhance your home’s beauty.

  1. Consider what you want for curb appeal. Are you seeking a classic approach or are you gearing up for a more bold look? Generally, a more neutral color will keep your house looking current for a longer time. That can be an important factor should you choose to sell your house in a few years. Or are you looking to make your house stand out from the rest? An out-of-the-norm shingle choice can certainly help to do that.
  2. Talk to your neighbors. If you live in a community that is governed by a homeowners’ association, be sure to check if there are rules established for shingle choices. Some associations are quite particular about having all homes look the same. If you are free to choose what you like, take a walk or drive through your neighborhood and see what you like and dislike about your neighbors’ roofing shingle colors.
  3. Take into account both your home’s surroundings and the architecture. A home surrounded by trees and other landscape elements is going to look different than one without many surrounding elements. Think about the bricks, siding, landscaping, and other features of your home as you consider what shingle colors might look the best.
  4. We can help to provide you with a full-size sample of the particular roofing element that you’re considering. Choosing based solely on a web site’s color chart or a sales brochure may not accurately reflect the true color.
