Roof replacement is a huge deal – it’s that one project where you’ll want to make sure you have all the bases covered. For example, aside from durability and energy performance, you should also take into account the color of your new asphalt shingles. Your new roof should contribute to increased curb appeal, after all. Here are some consideration when selecting new shingles.
Choose More of the Same
It’s not incredibly exciting, but getting new asphalt shingles that are the same color as your old ones does make for a safer decision. You’ve already seen for yourself this particular roof color works well with your home’s architectural style and exterior palette. Unless you’re also switching up the exterior color scheme of your home, it’s generally a good idea to stick to the same roof tone.
Consider the Climate in Your Area
Your choice of asphalt shingle color can affect the indoor temperature of your home, which can lead to higher energy bills if there’s no sufficient insulation. In a primarily hot and arid region like Texas, you might want to choose a lighter roof color to better reflect the sun and keep your home’s interior cooler and more comfortable. As one of the area’s trusted roofing contractors, Lankford Roofing & Construction LLC has earned the Owens Corning® Platinum Preferred certification. This means we have access to durable and high-quality composition shingles that come in a variety of colors. Choose from our Shasta White, Sierra Gray and Antique Silver – light-colored options that allow for better reflective performance.
Look at Your Home’s Exterior as a Guide
Your new roof color shouldn’t stand out too much, but you don’t want it to compete with your siding either. Strike a careful balance by considering the palette of your home’s exterior. A red brick home, for instance, looks better with dark brown, deep gray or black shingles. If your home has a neutral exterior – such as beige or cream – getting brown, warm gray or even colored shingles will be perfect.
