What Color Roof Should I Get

The aesthetic look of your home all comes down to the choice of color. Most roofs will last about 20 years so choose wisely based on the overlook you want to achieve. Take a look at some tips on how to pick the color of the roofing shingles for your home:

Shingle Color Pairings

Shingles can blend in with the siding materials and features of your home. Using traditional colors of gray, brown or black shingles is a safe bet. For a home with a natural color opt for brown or tan shingles.

Colors of red, orange or tan shingles can add a pop of color to a house. For a grand appearance choose gray or black shingles for a white, blue or yellow home.

Raise the Roof with Color

Selective colors on a low roof, such as a ranch house can give the overall impression of a taller house. Choose shingles that extend the color of the siding and will make the height of the house seem higher. Try not to use colors that will break the overlook of your home into sections such as black or white shingles.

Roof Material Pairings

Accentuate the architectural style of your home designed with different roofing materials. Drive around the neighborhood for some ideas on houses that use a mixture of wood, clay or slate shingles and even metal on their roof.
