Hi y’all! Maintaining a sound roof tops the list of crucial home repairs: It keeps you and your family warm and dry, along with everything in your house. But beyond the functions of shingle roof replacement, you need to think about appearance. How do you get a cohesive look that complements your home? Here are a few tips to help you find the right color for your shingle roof replacement.

Tip 1: Consider Going Bold

If you’ve looked at other roofs in the area, you may notice that they are all the same. They’re gray, black, sandy brown, and a few colors in between. If you want your home to stand out, you might consider going with something a bit bolder. You can still coordinate the look of your home with a bright shingle roof replacement. If you have white siding, consider red, for example. If you have dark brown siding, get something light in color. Contrast and get something bold that looks great and stands out, in a delightful way.

Tip 2: View In All Lights

When you are looking into shingle roof replacement, keep in mind that your roof will show at all hours of the day. Colors look different in the bright light of the sun versus on cloudy days. Keep a sample handy and make sure it always looks right with your siding. You can also check the color in the morning and afternoon; the position of the sun moves all day and can reflect light off your roof and siding in different ways.

Tip 3: Consider Practicality 

Lighter roofing is considered “cooler” than darker colors because the lighter shade reflects the heat of the sun. If your home doesn’t see much shade, you can maintain a higher level of energy efficiency within your home with light brown or tans.

Tip 4: Try It On

When you go out to buy clothing, you try things on. Shingle roof replacement is a lot bigger investment than a new pair of pants. Upload a photo of your home to your computer and look at different roofing styles and colors to see what fits the best. Take a ride around the neighborhood and look at houses like yours and the roofing they selected.

Tip 5: Upgrade Your Home

You know a new roof of any kind will upgrade your home’s value, but if you want to make the most of your investment, curb appeal is important as well. Ask for an expert and even friends’ opinions to get the best match.
