4 Tips to Choose the Right Roofing Shingle Color

4 Tips to Choose the Right Shingle Color.

When it comes to choosing new roofing, it can be easy for homeowners to focus on the quality and texture of shingles. And then forget that picking the right roofing shingle color is equally important.

Since you only have one chance to get it right, it’s essential to pick a shade that will work with the color and style of your home. And this may include blending with the other homes in your neighborhood.

Consider these tips from Muth & Company Roofing to help you choose the perfect roofing shingle color for your home.

Find a color that complements your home

Choosing a complimentary roof shingle color depends a lot on the style and composition of your home. Whether you have siding, brick, stucco, or stone, these play a big role in what shingle colors and styles will look best on your roof. If you are still having trouble and need help deciding, look at the GAF Shingle Style Guide.

Consider curb appeal

When selecting shingles for a new roof, you should keep in mind the impact your choice will have on the curb appeal of your home. Neutral colors are always a good choice to help your house look current. Or you could pick more distinctive colors to stand out among the crowd. It depends on what kind of statement you want to make.

Consult with the neighbors

This is especially important if you are new to the area and there’s a homeowner’s association to deal with. Your neighbors can give you a heads-up on the expectations of the neighborhood. This includes the preferred style and roofing shingle colors.

Research, research, research!

No matter how many recommendations you get from friends, family, or neighbors, don’t make any decisions until you do the research yourself.

Get samples, scope out other neighborhoods to get an idea of what you like, and use online visualization tools like Muth Roofing’s Roof Replacement 3D Modeling to get an idea of how the shingles will look on your home. Remember to consider your home’s architectural style as well. Shingles that look great on Tudor or Craftsman-style homes will not necessarily work with other architectural styles.
