How to Pick a Shingle Roof Color

So, you’re investing in a roof replacement and have decided on an asphalt shingle roof. Great choice! But now comes the hard part: picking the right color. Your roof’s color plays a large part in your home’s overall aesthetic, and it isn’t something that can be easily changed, so you need to make sure you love it—especially since shingle roofs can last up to 50 years.

Here are some tips on how to pick the perfect asphalt shingle roofing color for your home:

1.    Think About Your Home’s Architecture

Does your home feature a modern design with sharp angles and clean lines? Perhaps you have a Spanish-style home with a stucco exterior and ornate detailing. These homes likely wouldn’t feature the same color roof because of their distinct architectural designs, so it’s important that you keep your property’s architecture in mind when deciding on your shingle roof color.

2.    Check Out Your Neighborhood

Do you love your next-door neighbor’s roof color? Perhaps you strongly dislike the color of the roof down the street. While you likely don’t want to copy one of your neighbors outright, you can begin to get some ideas of the hues you appreciate and those you don’t.

3.    What Is Your Personal Preference?

You have to look at your home every single day, often multiple times a day—so, which color roof would you like to see on your residence? Your personal taste should play a large role in your final decision, so if you’re drawn to a certain color, it’s best to go with your gut.
