New shingles can give your home a facelift.

Whether you are preparing your house for sale, or just improving the look of your home for your own enjoyment, new shingles can have a big impact on the curb appeal of your home.

Colors have different effects.

Different roof shingle colors can evoke different moods.  According to GAF’s style guide, greens and blues emulate the colors of the sky and your home’s natural surroundings. Golds can add warmth and a luxury effect, while browns can enhance the other colors of the house. Grays are the most neutral and flexible, while black is the classic color. Explore the entire GAF style guide for their color analysis and images of the roof shingle colors available.

Complement the elements of your roof.

Use the color of your shingles as an accent to the entire look of the home. Consider not just the color of the siding, but also the trim and other details such as brick and stucco. You may want to use a subtle color to make the other elements “pop” …or you may want a bold look so that the overall home makes a statement.

Consider the practical side of the roof shingle color.

The curb appeal and pleasing visual impact is the first thing we think of, but don’t forget to consider other aspects of the shingle color.  In general, the darker colors will absorb more heat, and the lighter colors will remain a bit cooler. This may even affect the heating and cooling of your home.
