How To Choose the Best Shingle Color for Your Roof Replacement!

Replacing roof on your home is a big deal! After all, most roofs have a guaranteed lifespan of 20-60 years! That means the roof you put on your home now could be the same roof you have on your home for the rest of your life!

There are multiple options for the type of shingles you can put on your home and even MORE options for color! But, how do you choose the best color for your home? Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to help you with today!

  • Consider any rules in your neighborhood.

If you live in an HOA, there might be strict rules on what type of roof you can install and the options you have for colors. An easy way to check these rules is to contact your HOA president directly or refer to your HOA handbook. And, if all else fails, installing a roof of the same color that you had before is always a safe bet!

  • Think outside of the box!

Believe it or not, not every roof has to be black or brown! Most shingles are available in multiple color options including a variety of grays, blacks, browns, blues, and greens. Many higher-grade architectural shingle options also have shingle options where the color varies from shingle to shingle offering depth and dimension.  So, don’t feel like you have to stick with a plain shingle.  In fact, choosing a shingle with a little bit of color variation can add some serious curb appeal to your home!

  • Consider your surroundings.

In Frisco, Texas the sun shines bright and the temperatures can get rather warm throughout the year! For that reason, choosing a lighter colored roof can be a great idea.  Popular roof colors in Frisco include light gray variations and light browns!

  • Compliment the color of your home.

One of the best ways to choose a shingle color for your roof replacement is to consider the color of your home.  Here are a few rules that can help you decide.

If your siding is brown…choose shingles that are light brown, charcoal gray, green, black, or blue.

If your siding is beige…choose shingles that are dark green, dark blue, brown, or black.

If your siding is gray…choose shingles that are charcoal gray, dark blue, dark brown, or black.

If your siding is white…You can choose any color shingle you like!
