Choosing the right color for your shingle roof can have a significant impact on the over-
all look of your home. Here are some tips to help you determine the best color for your
shingle roof based on your house color:
Consider the style of your home:
The color of your shingle roof should complement the style of your home. For example, if you have a traditional style home, you may want to consider neutral colors such as black, gray, or brown. If you have a more modern or contemporary home, you may want to consider bolder colors such as blue, green, or even red.
Look at the undertones of your house color:
Every color has an undertone that can influence the colors that work well with it. For example, a house with a warm undertone may look better with warm-colored shingles such as brown or red, while a house with a cool undertone may look better with cool-colored shingles such as gray or blue.
Take into account the color of your home’s features:
The color of your roof should also complement the color of your home’s features such as the windows, doors, and trim. If you have white trim, for example, a gray roof may complement it well.
Consider the Climate:
The climate in your area can also influence the color of your shingle roof. In hot and sunny climates, lighter colored shingles may be more energy efficient and help keep your home cooler, while in colder climates, darker colored shingles may absorb more heat and help keep your home warmer. Since ProFormance Roofing is based in Florida we recommend a lighter colored shingle to help keep your home cool.
Once you have a few colors in mind, get samples from your roofing contractor and compare them against your home’s exterior. This will give you a better idea of how the colors look in different lighting conditions and against your home’s color palette.
By taking these factors into account and working with ProFormance Roofing, you can choose the right color for your shingle roof that complements your home’s style, color palette, and features.
