Choosing a roof shingle color is a simple way to update the appearance of your home, add to its curb appeal, and potentially even increase the energy efficiency in your home.
Because your roof is about 40 percent of your home’s exterior, it has incredible impact when it comes to creating an aesthetic that feels welcoming from the start.
Before you write off the shingle roof color as an immaterial part of the process of installing a new roof, consider the following:
Roof Shingle Color + Siding and Shutters
Will the roof shingle color you have in mind clash with the siding and shutters or complement them to create a cohesive look?
If, for example, your shutters and siding are the same color of red, a red roof shingle may clash, become overbearing, or just feel off enough to be visually disturbing.
Instead, choosing a roof shingle that creates contrast with the existing siding and shutters is recommended. For example, if you have a dark wood stain siding and shutters, a light brown roof shingle may be a good choice.
Color Blend Roof Shingles May Be the Perfect Choice
You could use your roof shingle to pull together different colors on the exterior of your home. For example, if you have a black door, gray shutters, and white trim, you might choose a roof shingle color that blends black and gray, gray and white, or all three of the main colors.
In general, if you have a neutral siding or simple tones on your house, a blended roof shingle color is recommended to add a bit of visual texture and interest to your home. Flecks of green, brown, or red can add just the right touch to your home’s color palette.
