How to Pick the Right Color for Your Brand-New Shingles

The act of picking a color for brand-new shingles can be overwhelming. Because there are so many colors to choose from, you could easily waste hours navigating the landscape. There is a better way. If you follow these steps, you’ll save a lot of time.

What You Should Do

When to comes to color selection, it’s important to get it right the first time. Here’s what you’ll need to do to stay on the right path.

Use Resources

This is a very easy strategy. It all starts with a roofing contractor. In most cases, if you mention color resources to a roofing contractor, he should be able to help you. Some contractors could even provide a swatch pad or a swatch book.  

Pursue Samples

If a contractor is unable to help you move forward, you can find samples elsewhere. A photo gallery is a great place to start. If you’re not a fan of photo galleries, you could review a physical sample board in your area.  

Get Recommendations

Once you’re found a few potential color candidates, it’s time to get a second opinion, and a roofing contractor is qualified for this job. If you work with a seasoned roofer, he will know which color is best for your home.


After you’ve selected a color and a contractor, ask the contractor about his previous projects, and target any homes that were updated with your favorite shingle color. Then, go view the shingles in their natural habitat. Pay attention to the lighting because it’s a major factor. Some colors will look completely different in certain environments.  

What You Should Not Do

Color is the most important aspect of a home because it creates curb appeal. However, all colors are not created equal. In the world of roofing, contrast is what matters the most. For this reason, you should never pick a shingle color that’s the same color as your siding. If you make this mistake, your home will appear bland.
