When you decide to change your roof shingles most often people tell us to use the same color they had. But there are a ton of options out on the market today.


Some things to consider when selecting the right color for your home.

What style is your home?

If your home is a more modern design you will want to consider modern colors. Black and white often prove popular. Modern homes typically use bold colors that complement the rest of the building. Often modern homes have metal siding and coordinating colors is important.

If you have an older colonial style home you will want to consider some of the more traditional colors like Barn Red, or Weathered Wood from GAF. These colors match more traditional building materials like brick and stucco.


Where is your home located?

If you live in a warmer climate like the south, or out west, you will want to go with a lighter color shingle that will help to reflect some of that hot summer sun away from your building. White shingles are popular in these areas for that reason.
If you live up north where it is colder for a large portion of the year, you will want to go with a darker color which may help to retain heat in the winter and serve to melt snow faster. Because these areas typically have more rainfall and lower temperatures don’t dry everything as quickly darker colors will help to hide algae and mildew growth.
