Choosing shingles for your roof is a significant decision for a home owner. Roofing manufacturers come up with different shingle colors and the homeowners are having lot of choices. It is crucial to remember that the trim color, siding, and stone color must coordinate with the shingle color so your home can have an overall good appeal. Most of the manufacturers have an online catalog or smart phone applications where you can choose the colors and see how your house will look like with the options you choose.
Roofing contractors also face a challenge in deciding the roofing shingles colors. The following aspects must be considered before choosing the color of the shingles:
Grays and blacks are the popular choice for houses that are painted white, blue, red, or yellow. Brown color homes look good with brown shingles. You can choose from neutral colors or trendy colors depending on the statement you want to make and whether you want to make your home appear big or small. You can improve the architectural look of your home with the shingle colors.
Major manufacturers have their own tools to help homeowners decide their shingle colors. For example, IKO has the RoofViewer tool, where you can upload the picture of your home and select the shingle color, trim color, and stone color to see how your home will look. The tool also has standard home types to test the colors.
However, with all the choices available, homeowners must also check with the local home owners association before finalizing the shingle colors. Some associations have restrictions on the color, type, or manufacturer of the roofing shingles. Contact Olde Town Roofing at 3097385550 for the color catalogs available in your area.
