How to Choose Your Roof Shingle Colors

Does Color Matter in a Roofing ShingleHaving a new roof installed can be an exciting process as it gives you the opportunity to completely revamp the appearance of your home. However, it can also be a scary decision when you consider how long you’ll have to live with your choice. In general, most roofs last around 20 years, so you could be stuck with the shingle color for a while. Choosing the right color for your shingles will ensure your new roof looks beautiful for years. However, in order to choose shingle colors that you’ll still love years after your roof is installed, it’s important that you consider your home’s style, the look you want to achieve, and the climate in which you live. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose a color that works with your home’s architectural style and colors.
  • Coordinate the color of your roof with the colors of your siding and shutters.
  • Select the right color for your climate; light shingles help deflect sunlight and keep temperatures down in hotter climates, while dark shingles absorb heat and help homes stay warm in colder climates.
  • Consult your homeowner’s association and subdivision rules (if there are any) to see what is allowed.
