Picking The Right Shingles

I am sure there are a lot more fun things you would like to be doing than thinking about your shingles. Whether metal, slate, or asphalt shingles there are a lot of choices. For each color choice available, there is a multitude of shades and color combinations.Your Fort Collins roofing provider can help you with a few tips to consider.


  • Dark Vs. Light Roof Colors

    • The only thing to consider here is picking a color that you can live with long term. Don’t pick something based on emotion but rather practicality.

  • Pick A Color Based On The Color Of Your Brick

    • When choosing a roofing color, remember that paint colors and shutters can be changed, but bricks are permanent. Start by comparing samples to the bricks then move to siding and paint colors.

  • Compare Exterior Colors

    • If you are planning to make a change to the color of the outside of your home, compare the new paint color to the shingles or roofing samples. Go to your local hardware store with a board painted the new color and put it next to the shingles.

  • Complementary Choices Add Dimension

    • Some of the worst roof color mistakes are when a homeowner chooses a hue that almost matches the exterior and brick perfectly. It winds up being monotone, boring, lifeless color scheme. Always try to complement your colors rather than matching them
