Picking the right color for your roof isn’t as easy as it sounds, as there is quite a bit of thought that needs to go into it.
There are many different factors such as the color of your home, the color of your shutters, window frames and doors, the rules of your homeowner’s association, and much more.

Let’s break down the factors you need to consider when choosing a roof shingle color.
The Color of Your Home
It’s important to consider the color of your home before deciding on a shingle color. You don’t want to buy your roofing shingles, install it and then realize that there’s major color clashing taking place. Before you purchase any shingles, take some samples home and match it with the various colors around your home to ensure that it all goes with one another. Customers can use color visualizing tools, like those found on the Owens Corning website, to get a better picture of how their home would look with specific roof shingle colors.
Depending on the climate that you live in, the color of your shingles can significantly affect the temperature of your attic. Homes in warm climates will do better with lighter colored shingles as they help to reflect the sun’s rays, keeping your attic and ultimately your home a lot cooler. Homes in colder climates do better with darker shades as they absorb the sun’s rays and increase the temperature in your home.
The architectural style of your home may dictate which shingle color you need to go for. Some older, historic homes may be better suited with darker and more dramatic shingle colors, whereas beachfront homes would be better suited with something more light and comforting. You do not wish to ruin your home’s aesthetics with a mismatched roof color.
