How to chose your roofing shingle color

Knowing what color to choose for your roof is no easy task, any color you choose will stay for the next 20-40 years! So what color do you pick? How do you know which colors are the best? No need to worry, we are here to help! We have devised a guide to help you pick the perfect color and shade to match your home.

Dark Shingles– These darker roof colors can make a light colored home pop, especially when paired with darker shutters. Also, studies have shown that having a dark shingle such as black or brown is known to keep your home, on average, 10 degrees warmer than a light colored shingle (this will save you money during the winter)

Light Shingles– Lighter colors can help balance out a darker paint color and (when paired with a reflective coating) can block up to 75% of heat coming into home.

If you have brick, pick shingles based on your brick- Being that bricks are a permanent option, you want to be sure you are making the right choice. Try and compare sample shingle colors to your new or existing brick and see how it looks.
