Installing a new roof can be a very exciting project, from designing the shape or the style of it to deciding which roofing material to use or which color to choose.
Deciding on the right color for your roofing system isn’t as easy as it seems, there is quite a bit of thought and processing that goes 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.
Today, modern homeowners are spoilt for choice when it comes down to picking out a color for their roofing systems. Shingle brands offer thousands of different color shades and hues for your home’s shingle roofing. You’re able to make your roof as neutral or as flamboyant as you desire.

Let’s break down the elements you need to consider when choosing a roof shingle color.
The Color of Your Home
It’s essential to consider the color of your home before settling on a shingle color. You don’t want to buy your roofing shingles, install them and then realize that there’s significant color clashing taking place. Before you purchase any shingle colors, take some samples home and match them with the various color hues around your home to ensure that they all match with one another. Customers can use color visualizing tools, like those found on the Owens Corning website, to get a better idea 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 drastically alter the temperature in your attic. Homes in warm environments will do better with lighter colored shingles as they help to reflect UV rays, keeping your attic and your home cooler. Homes in colder climates do better with darker shades as they absorb the sun’s rays and increase your home’s temperatures.
The architectural aesthetic of your home may be the deciding factor for which shingle color you need to opt for. Some older, historic homes tend to be better suited with darker and more dramatic shingle colors, whereas homes in coastal regions would be better suited with something lighter with softer hues. You wouldn’t want to ruin your home’s aesthetics with a mismatched roof color.
