Selecting a roof color is a crucial decision. The hue of your roof can also affect your home’s overall appeal and value. Asphalt, today’s most popular roofing option, comes in a wide range of colors to complement every home.
How Asphalt Shingle Colors Are Created
Asphalt shingles are made of multi-colored granules, ensuring you have a wide selection of color options. The granules are created from durable igneous rock, which has been coated with a clay silicate mixture for color. They are coated with a highly durable ceramic and surface treated for long-term adhesion before application.
Asphalt Roofing Color Trends
If you have a bold-colored home exterior, then go for a neutral roof. This roof color will accentuate your siding’s hue. More architects and homeowners are choosing dark exterior colors. Instead of beige, consider darker roof colors that complement deep blues, greens and browns for added character.
Tips for Choosing a Roof Color
Go for an asphalt shingle color that complements the rest of the homes in your neighborhood. You can ask your roofing contractor for different shingle color options. It would also help to consult a roofing manufacturer to review various sample boards. Online, you can use tools to help you visualize how different roof colors would look on your home once installed.
