When it’s time to replace your home’s roof, how do you decide what shingle color to choose? Do you repeat what you’ve done in the past or take a risk with something new? It may seem like a simple decision but the choice you make will impact the way you and others see your home for the next 20 plus years.
We wrote this blog to help give you some guidance for choosing the right shingle color for your roof. Read on for a few of our helpful tips.
Take a look around the neighborhood.
If you live in a neighborhood with an HOA, you probably have some fairly strict guidelines on what color of shingles your home needs to have. If so, you’ll want to consult your HOA before you start shopping so you know what your options are. If not, take a look around at your neighbors’ roofs and see what choices they have made. What do you like? What doesn’t suit your taste?
Take a look at your house.
What colors dominate the exterior of your home? Look at your current siding. Does your existing shingle color complement the color of your siding? How would a new color alter that dynamic? Unless you are planning on getting new siding or want to undertake an expensive painting project, you’ll want to make sure you are looking at shingles that complement your existing siding.
Consider curb appeal.
Choosing a shingle color is all about curb appeal. You want your home to look beautiful for you and your family as well as for anyone who visits or happens to drive by. Curb appeal also has a serious impact on generating interest should you ever decide to sell your home. Some shingle colors will blend closely with your exterior colors, others will provide more of a bold accent. It’s all about your style preferences.
