How To Pick Out The Right Colored Shingles



It's hard enough to figure out what people should use in order to roof their homes because there are a lot of different kinds of shingles out there made by a lot of different manufacturers, so it can be tough to choose what sort of material to use. However, another tough decision people are faced with other than deciding whether to go with metal or concrete shingles is what color of shingles to buy from a store like Lowes or Home Depot or from manufacturers like CertainTeed or GAF Timberline. Picking out the right roofing shingles colors can be tough, however, this article will try to help out.
First off, it's important to look at the home and see what colors are going to match the home. For example, a house that is getting a roof put on it probably already has the doors, the door handles and possibly even shutters on it already, which means that the colors of those items need to be taken into consideration as well as the color of the entire house. It's important to go with either the color of the shudders or the color of the house.

The benefit of picking out shingles that are the color of the house is that they will obviously match real well. For example, if the house is blue then getting blue shingles that are of the same blue shade would match really well with no problem at all. The house would have a contrast of color since the shutters would definitely have to be a different color. However, the only problem with doing it this way is that it may be too much of one color because the exterior walls of a home cover much more area than the shutters.

In order to get the best possible match when it comes to roofing shingles colors it's best for people to get shingles that match the color of their shutters or any other smaller part of the exterior of the home. Make sure, though, to bring in an example of a smaller part of the exterior of the home when ordering the shingles in order to make sure that the colors will match exactly. Hopefully this article has been beneficial to those wondering what colored shingles they should get for their home.
