When the time comes for you to replace your shingles it’s important that you are choosing a color that matches the style of your home and something that may provide you with advantages to your roofing lifespan. Here are some of the top factors to consider when choosing the right shingle color
Asking Your Neighbor
Your neighborhood may have guidelines regarding the shingle colors that you can use. If you’re in a condo association or you are in a specialty community, you might have just a few different options for your shingles.
Check The Current Shingles
If you like the look of your house currently, you might want to consider colors that are roughly the same. Consider other options that could mesh well with your current exterior colors. Replacing your shingles and then having to repaint your home could be a costly expense so think about complementary colors.
The Curb Appeal
Just because you like a specific color of shingle, it doesn’t mean that a future owner would appreciate it. Consider a shingle color that is popular and that can be fairly neutral for the look of your home. Although you may not be looking to sell your home, shingles can last a long time and it is always important to consider resale when you are considering shingles for replacement.
Ask a Professional
There are certain advantages towards going with lighter colored shingles and trends based on the latest roofing materials on the market. Consulting a roofer to get more information on the right type of shingle color that would suit your home, can make sure you end up with something that’s functional as well as dynamic. Making an informed decision will present you with all of the advantages of choosing a specific color and roofing material.
