Choosing the Correct Shingle Color

Selecting a shingle color can be very hard for many homeowners looking to replace their roof.  

There are many factors that need to be considered, including aesthetics, energy efficiency, home style, and future home improvements.  There are different colors, types and patterns from which to choose. Here are some of the most common ways in which homeowners choose shingles that complement their home.

COORDINATE SHINGLES WITH SIDING AND SHUTTERS

For many homeowners, one of the easiest ways to complement their roof to their home is to match their shingles to the siding and shutters of their home.  Our experts can bring in samples of different colors to help you find the right fit.  

Here are some color matching options:

House Color: Red  |  Best Shingle Color to Match: Dark Brown, Grey, Green
House Color: Light Grey  |  Best Shingle Color to Match: Grey, Black, Green, Blue
House Color: 
Beige/Cream  |  Best Shingle Color to Match: Brown, Black, Grey, Green, Blue
House Color: Brown  |  Best Shingle Color to Match: Grey, Brown, Green, Blue
House Color: White  |  Best Shingle Color to Match: Almost any color

COLOR-BLENDED SHINGLES

Color-blended asphalt shingles offer homeowners a way to add intrigue to their roof.  As a Preferred Contractor of Owens Corning, WeatherPro Exteriors offers their Duration Designer series, which include a variety of color-blend options to choose from.  It’s best to remember that the plainer your home’s siding is, the more varied your color-blending can be. If your home’s siding includes a variety of materials and colors, color-blend shingles may clash.

CREATE VISUAL BALANCE

Your home’s height and overall style should factor in to your asphalt shingle choice.  Light-colored shingle roofing can make a multi-level home seem off balance. For these types of homes, darker roofs can draw the eye upward, giving the home a top-down visual appeal.  Meanwhile, dark colored roof shingles can make a single-story home look smaller and shorter than it really is. For a single-story ranch-style home, a medium tones colored roof looks best.
