How To Pick The Right Shingle Color:

Asphalt shingle roofs are the most common choice of roof for residential areas. The low cost, durability, and styling options are all desirable for a homeowner. The styling options, specifically, allow for more customization on a home. The color options for these roofs are endless, and it can be difficult to make a decision. So how can you be confident in your decision when choosing a shingle color?

Two major factors that play into picking a shingle color are geography and climate. For example, the desert is almost always sunny and the surrounding landscape is mostly brown. You want to pick a shingle color that will match the environment so your home looks more natural and is harmonious with the area. In this case, a tan or lighter colored shingle would do well. In a green and rainy environment, however, a darker colored shingle would be a more appropriate choice.

Additionally, the material used to build the home can dictate what color should be chosen for a shingle. A red brick home is usually paired with a darker shingle color with a texture that matches the brick. A brown or lighter colored shingle is usually paired with a stucco or stone covered home.

While there are no set rules for which shingle color you should pick, you can observe your neighbors’ homes and get an idea of what is popular in the area. You can also consult with a professional to get their take. Ultimately, however, the decision is up to you.
