Choosing the RIght Asphalt Shingle Color

Wednesday, July 1st, 2020 by Nate Truncone

Replacing your roof will create a safer, more beautiful comfortable home and should include more than just a new layer of shingles.  While having a structurally sound roof is always the goal, it is also important to consider the appearance of your new roof.  We install superior architectural asphalt shingles that withstand harsh weather and increase your home’s curb appeal.  Choosing the right asphalt shingles is a difficult decision because the visible part of the roof is about 30 to 40 % of your home's exterior.  That is why we install high-performance asphalt shingles that come in a wide range of colors and can recommend the perfect option to match your home's style! 

Here are some factors to consider when picking out the right shingle color for your home:

  • Type of home & the surroundings – It is important to choose a shingle color that pairs well with the exterior color of your home. Ideally, you will want to consider a contrasting shingle color with your siding material such as black, gray, or brown
  • The neighboring homes – Sure you want your beautiful home to stand out in the neighborhood, but you also want to ensure that your roof color fits in with the other homes in the surrounding area.
  • Region & climate - Lighter shingles may help keep the temperature of your home down by reflecting heat and darker shingle colors absorb heat and may help homes in colder climates stay warm. 
  • Your personal preferences – Again, your shingle colors should match the type of home you have, but feel free to get creative when selecting the color of your new roof replacement.
