Considerations of Shingle Colors

You have decided to use shingles for your roofing design. Now you’re wondering, “which color should I choose?” The shingle color can affect the protection of your house, but also adds to the aesthetic of your home. Here are two methods you could use to help choose the best shingle color for your home. First, pick a color for your house and location. Ask yourself, “what colors pair well with my house, will I be changing the color palette of my home, which will accentuate the architectural design of my home’s shape and exterior?” Also, take into consideration the weather patterns where your home is located. For example, if you live in a location that experiences warmer temperatures you might want to consider a cool, reflective shingle. Second, use the shingles as a design element. Your shingles can make a statement about your home. Whether they stand out with color and/or the design, or if you use different shingle materials such as; clay, wood, or slate. Additionally, opt for a color that will make your house seem larger and plan around your home’s architectural design. Choosing the shingles for your home can be a difficult decision, but with a little research, you can find the perfect color for you.
