Installing a new roof is no small feat. You’ll have to find a good residential roofing company, decide on a number of factors that affect its performance and, last but certainly not least, set aside a considerable budget to get it all done. With so many things at stake, it’s important to approach this project with as much information as possible.
One of the first things you’ll need to decide is about the material of your roof replacement. While shingles are still the number one choice of homeowners today, choosing the type of shingle to use can be a challenging task. This difficulty is apparent when it comes to shingle colors. Let our roofing specialists at Fortenberry Roofing give you a few pointers about how to properly choose colors for your roof.
If you’re undecided about what color you should go with for your roof replacement, it’s not a bad idea to take a cue from your neighbors. Take a walk or drive around your block to see the roof colors of your neighbors and use them as reference or inspiration for your own roof. In some areas, some homeowner's associations might even require the use of certain colors to keep everything relatively uniform.
Alternatively, you can also use the current color scheme of your home to determine possible colors for your shingles. Light neutral tones in your walls pair perfectly with darker roofs, while bright and bold walls and light-colored roofs are always a reliable combination.
The colors you choose for your shingles can also affect the energy efficiency of your roof. In colder climates, your residential roofing contractor might recommend darker shades for the roof to absorb more heat from the sun and help keep your home warm even during winter. On the other hand, lighter colors are the best choice for homes in areas that get large amounts of sun throughout the year.
