Factors to Consider when Choosing the Color of Shingles

  1. 1. By GAF Timberline Shingles
  2. 2.  A leading shingles manufacturer, GAF has been recognized for its high quality shingles, including those in its Timberline product line. For many homeowners, GAF Timberline shingles are a stylish and practical roofing option. With so many different colors and styles of shingles available, some homeowners struggle with making a selection. Since the roof makes up such a large area of a home’s exterior, the type of shingles a homeowner chooses can have a drastic effect on the home’s overall appearance. In fact, about 30 percent of a home’s exterior is the roof. In order to make a good decision, there are a number of things a homeowner should keep in mind when evaluating different options for shingles.
  3. 3.  It’s a good idea to take a number of practical factors into account when choosing a shingles color. Lighter colored shingles will reflect heat, and are often a good decision for homes in hot areas. Darker colored shingles, on the other hand, absorb heat, and are therefore a popular option in colder climates. Additionally, consider the colors of the landscape surrounding the home. A roof that blends in with the surrounding area can create a seamless and appealing look. On the other hand, avoid selecting shingles that are the same color as the rest of the home’s exterior. Some contrast tends to greatly improve the home’s look.
