How to Pick the Best Roof Shingles Color For Your Property?
Your roof accounts for roughly 25 to 40 percent of your home’s visible exterior and plays an important role in perceived from the street view.
Now you understand how important to pick the right shingle color, especially if you want to enhance your home’s investment value.
Our short guide offers practical working tips for choosing the right asphalt shingle color to achieve the right emotional effect in highlighting the beauty of your home.
✅ Coordinate with Siding and Shutters
Interior designers put much attention to pretty colors for flooring, cabinets, countertops, and walls without regard to the big picture.
All colors have to work together to achieve a whole that is visually coordinated and appealing.
The same works also for the home exteriors. The roof( shingles) color should be dissimilar enough to provide a real contrast.
For example, a dark brown roof would be boring with wood siding stained dark. Brown color shingles would perfectly visually coordinate with beige siding, or with white, a more distinct contrast.
By the way, when the color of the shingles picks up tones in window shutters, the front door, or accent trim, it nicely ties together the exterior look of the house.
✅ Know When to Use Color Blends
Most asphalt shingle lines are produced in solid colors and blends. The main blending principle: The plainer the siding is, the more a blended shingles color pattern is needed to make your home look interesting and attractive.
As an example, a solid black roof on a home with dark brown wood siding creates a depressing combination.
The same home with shingles that have a charcoal base but flecked with greens, tans, and browns would be far more appealing.
Otherwise, if your home’s siding is varied – perhaps brick featuring multiple shades or an elegant stone front with varied colors – then color-blended shingles will break all the pretty of your house.
Dark shingles can make a single-story home appear to be “all roof,” especially if it is a tall, steeply pitched roof or a hip roof.
Light-colored shingles atop a two-story can look out of balance too, especially if the roof has a lower pitch such as 4/12 or 6/12.
A general guideline to follow when choosing an asphalt roof is to choose a darker color than the body of your house.
Speaking of tones, medium and dark colors draw attention to stylish roof dormers. If you’ve got them, you might as well show them off. Just keep the principle of balance in mind when choosing to go with a medium or dark color.
