Choosing the right look for your home…

Investing in a new shingle roof is the perfect opportunity to increase the value and curb appeal of your home. Your roof is one of the main attributes of your home’s exterior, so it should complement your home’s style, color scheme and landscaping.
As you browse through shingle choices, colors and styles, think about how the look of your new roof will impact your home’s exterior. Listed below are some tips to help you find the perfect shingle choice for your home.
  • What color should I choose? Consider the look of your home’s exterior. A new shingle color could bring the look of your home together. Or even inspire a new palette.

  • Take a look at the Asphalt granules… Most shingles get their coloring from a mixture of colored granules. You can use the colors of these granules to coordinate all of your home’s exterior elements, including the paint, siding, brick, stone etc.

  • Would you like to add more texture and dimension? If your home’s exterior lacks color dimension, consider adding shingles that appear thicker and give your roof a rich, textured look. If your home already has a detailed and multi-dimensional exterior, you could choose a more gentle and conservative look. You may also want to consider vented ridge capping on your roof, this product will add detail and compliment the unique ridges and peaks of your home.
