Choosing a Shingle Color

When it comes to roofs and shingles, it can be tough to pick out the right one. There are quite a few options, and if you’re not an expert or have previous knowledge of what works or doesn’t work for your house, you can have a difficult experience throughout the process. 

Your roof is something that protects your home from a multitude of things. Choosing the right materials doesn’t have to mean choosing the most expensive material. However,  if the materials you’re looking to purchase are incredibly cheap, it’s worth taking another look at the product and asking for a second opinion.

Besides pricing, styles and colors play a huge role in your decision process. If you’re in the process of planning to replace the shingles on your roof, or will be in the future, there are a few things you should consider before making a commitment or investing in a new roof.

For example, what kind of roof does your home currently have? Is it steep pitched? If the answer is yes, then you’ll likely see more of the roof from the outside. This type of roof can play a part in your shingle choice.

Shingle Styles

The most common choices are three-tab shingles or architectural shingles. Depending on what was in use before, either can have a completely different look for your home.


There are a variety of materials to choose from; this can range from classic shingles all the way to a full metal roof. The material used can be dependent upon where you’re located and if you have an HOA. 


Choosing a color is a choice that may not come as easily as you’d expect. There are so many options available in today’s market that it can make picking just one difficult. The color you choose will last you for many years, you want to ensure that you’re confident in your decision. 

Things you’ll want to take into consideration during the selection process are your neighbors’ homes as well as the homes in your area to see what the common color would be. You’ll also want to make sure that any selection is validated with your HOA. With these in mind you may decide you want your home to look similar, or you may want your home to stand out.


While price shouldn’t be the only deciding factor in buying shingles, it is a part of it. Some homeowners simply don’t have the means to buy certain materials for their home or invest in their home like they’d like to. When it comes down to price, search around and compare other materials and companies.
