You’ve done it before. You’ve driven by a mostly gorgeous home and thought to yourself, “There’s something I just don’t like about that house.” You then realize the roof color just seems “off.” It just doesn’t go with the style and colors of the rest of the house. You determine to never make the same mistake that homeowner did on your own home. But, the day comes when it’s time to choose a new shingle for your roof and the color choices seem daunting. How do you know which will be best?
There are a couple of general guidelines to use when choosing the right roof shingle color for you, because choosing the wrong color is like wrapping a gift and putting the wrong color bow on the top.
- Coordinating colors- Dark gray or black work well with a gray or blue house. Brown or mix of cream and brown roofing shingles work well if you have a brown, cream or tan colored house. Dark gray or black on your white house will give it a traditional look. Use brown, gray or black on green, red or yellow-painted homes.
- Neighborhood- Check with your neighborhood association, if you have one, to make sure your choice of roofing color does not violate any neighborhood rules or covenants. If you don’t have a Home Owner’s Association, this about how your roof will look alongside your neighbor’s house. Try not to duplicate their roof unless that is the norm in your neighborhood. Also, make sure it doesn’t clash.
