Your roof can comprise up to 50% of your home's exterior. What you do with that 50% can have a tremendous impact on the overall look and value of your home. With that in mind, you should approach your exterior color choices with the same care as you choose interior colors for your home.

Choose a Complementary Color

Shingle manufacturers off a wide array of distinctive shingle color blends you can use as a design tool to create your own unique exterior decor.

If you look closely at the shingle color blend you choose, you'll see a combination of different colors. For example, a seemingly gray shingle could actually be a blend of gray, green, brown, or black granules. By "pulling out" individual granule color(s), and using this color for other exterior elements like siding, paint, trim, brick, and entryways, your entire exterior will look coordinated and complementary. And your home's appeal from the street will dramatically increase.

Here are some tips regarding shingle color:

  • Complementary colors and shades - highlight any architechural style, bringing out the beauty of brick, siding, exterior paint, and trim.
  • Darker color blends - provide contrasting color for accenting widows, doors, and other architectural elements.
  • Lighter color blends - simplify a home's lines and angles, making the home appear larger.
