One of the most popular residential roofing options is asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles come in a wide array of colors. By choosing the right color for your home you can boost your home’s curb appeal. You should choose a color that you like, but also one that complements the rest of your home’s exterior.
There are a few things you should consider when making your asphalt shingle color selection.
Location Your location and climate should be a consideration when selecting a roof color. Depending on your insulation, the temperature of your interior can be affected by the color of your shingles. Darker colors tend to absorb and retain more heat. However; lighter shingles will reflect more sunlight and help keep your home cool.
Exterior Color You should select a roof color that goes well with the rest of your home’s exterior. A brown or dark grey roof goes well with a beige or cream exterior. If your home has red siding, you might go with a dark brown roof. If you are also replacing your siding or painting your brick, you might consider an entirely new exterior color scheme. Texan Roofing Pros would love to help you choose a roof color that compliments well with your existing home colors or your new plan.
Neighborhood You also need to consider the colors of the other homes in your neighborhood. In most cases, you do not want your roof to look too different or stick out from the other houses in your area. If you live in a neighborhood with a property owners association you may have restrictions on colors or changes that are allowed to be made.
