Color Matters – Choosing The Right Shingles For Your Home

beigegold-iconYour roof is an important element in the overall appearance of your home.

It’s a key architectural element of your home that visitors often notice first, so your roof color and shingle style color greatly affect your property’s curb appeal. Whether it’s deep brown, light gray, navy blue, soft red, or muted green, the color you choose always says something about your design preferences and personality.

When considering a new roof for your home it’s important to carefully consider the colors that you want to use. The color of your shingles not only has an aesthetic impact, but it also can have a practical impact as the color of your shingles also affects the temperature and energy efficiency of your home. In fact your roof color can affect the temperature in your attic by 20 to 40 degrees and make a real difference in heating or cooling your home.

If you are thinking about selling your home in the near future, go with a more neutral roofing color scheme to protect your resale value.

Try to coordinate the color of your roof shingles with the colors of other elements of your home such as bricks, wooden siding, stone or stucco. Paint and shutter colors can always be changed, but bricks, natural wood and stonework are much more permanent. Start by comparing sample shingle colors to the brick, then move to the siding or paint colors.
