Updated: Nov 22, 2022
Yes, you can get different colored shingles, and there is a wide variety of colors to choose from. You can also get custom colors made if you so desire. Whether you want a solid color or a patterned one, you should be able to find what you're looking for. Just be sure to do your research and compare prices before making your final decision and don't forget to ask for some roof shingles samples so you can see how they would look in place.
Location matters! If you live in a hot climate, darker colors will absorb more heat and could make your home uncomfortably warm. If you live in a cold climate, lighter colors will reflect more sunlight and help keep your home warmer. Talk to Live Oak Roofing & Exteriors to see what they recommend for your particular situation.
How to choose a shingle roof colors?
The color of your roof shingles can have a big impact on the overall look of your home. If you're not sure what color to choose, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Consider the colors of your other exterior features. You want your roof to complement, not clash, with the rest of your home's exterior.
Think about the style of your home. A traditional home in Newnan might look best with classic black or grey shingles, while a more modern home could benefit from a different roof shingles color. Curb appeal and enjoyment go hand-in-hand! The perfect shade of shingle can make all the difference in how well people enjoy their time at home. From traditional blues, greens or browns; or something bolder like red - we've got just what every household needs to give them that extra edge when passing by on curb side (even if they're not actually selling).
The wrong shingle color can make a home look unappealing and disrupt the balance of other exterior colors. A house with different shades on each side looks out-of-place, as if it's just thrown together without much consideration for aesthetics or design elements such as rhythm from section to next door. The physical appearance is not only discordant but also cramped due to its lack in uniformity.
To get you started these are the most popular roof shingle colors at the moment:
Black –Brown –Grey –Green –Blue –Red -Burgundy - Tan - Beige - Cream - White
Take some shingle samples and move them around your home, prop it up by your brick, by your siding, your door, your trim, your garage door and by any exterior stonework you have. By using this simple method, you will know instantly whether the shingle color is right for your house. By eliminating the colors that don't work with your siding or brick, you’ll be able to choose which ones remain. Don’t forget to look at the samples in place during different times of the day as sunlight can make the shingle color look different.
