Your roof is one of the most visible parts of your home’s exterior, which is why you need to take special care when selecting a color for your roofing shingles. In today’s post, our roof replacement specialists share some tips on how to choose a shingle color that will boost your home’s curb appeal.
For Partial Replacements, Keep the Old Colors
If you’re only investing in a partial roof replacement, you should look for new shingles that are an exact match in color to your existing shingles. Otherwise your roof will have a patched over, mismatched look that will create an eyesore.
For New Roofs, Consider the Color of Walls and Siding
Look for a shingle color that goes well with your siding, especially if the shingles will be used for a new roof construction. You can pick a color that forms a great contrast with your siding to give your home a more dynamic look or you can pick a low-contrast color and create a sense of visual unity for your home’s exterior. If you’re not sure what color would look best, don’t hesitate to consult with your roofing contractor.
Go for Different Shades
While you should stick to color, opting for different hues within that color is a great choice that will give your roof rich dimension. This will prevent your new roof from looking dull or flat. Popular options include combining several shades of grey, brown, greens or red.
Don’t Forget Your Neighbors
You should also consider how your new roof coating will look next to neighboring homes. Consult your local homeowners’ association to see if they have a recommended palette of colors that you can use for your new shingles.
