When it comes time to replace your roof, there are dozens of colors available for your shingles. Whether you’re looking to match your current style or go for something brand new, here are four ways to help find the right color for your shingles.
1. Ask a Neighbor
Does your complex or neighborhood have guidelines for shingle color? While brightly colored or unique shingles may look striking, some areas have restrictions on the colors you can use. This helps ensure a uniform look to the neighborhood. Ask a neighbor or consult your association for more information before selecting shingles.
2. Check Out Your House
What color is your siding? Do your current shingles match, accent or clash with your siding color and material? These questions will help steer you toward or away from certain shingle options. Vivid colors may look tempting, but don’t select an option that clashes with your current exterior colors. Otherwise, you may have to repaint your siding in order to match your new, brightly-colored roof.
3. Keep Up the Curb Appeal
Personal preferences aside, you want a home that stands out in a good way. Think about shingle colors that are popular, inviting and increase interest in your home. Whether you’re looking to sell or you’re in your forever home, don’t forget curb appeal.
Some roofs match the color of the siding for a unified look. Others use an accent color to create depth and personality. Don’t forget about other colors visible, such as trim, doors and landscaping.
