Choosing the right shingles color is a great way to update your home. A good contractor will walk you through choosing the colors you want for your new shingles. There are three main colors to choose from: white, cream, and tan. White and tan shingles have the most durability and can often last longer than other colors. When choosing the right colors, it is important to consider the longevity of your shingles. If you want to have your shingles last as long as possible, be sure to choose tan or white.
The most effective way to accent your roof in an update is to match the new roofing shingles with the other elements of your house. For instance, if you have light stucco siding you should choose light-colored shingles. You can also check shingle color samples with your previous roofing company for other color choices and then match those with your asphalt shingles and shutters to pick out the right shingle color.
The shingles you choose can also set the tone of your house. For example, if you live in a Victorian style home or an antique home, your choice of shingles will play an important part in your decor. Look for architectural style shingles that reflect the architecture of your house. For example, shingled cedar shakes that come in a rustic architectural style would look great alongside a classic house with period details.
