How to choose a shingle color
When choosing the color of your roof’s shingles, there’s usually two categories you can fall into: blending or contrasting. Both of these options really just depend on your personal taste. Do you want your home to blend in with its surroundings? Or, do you want to stand out a bit more? Do you want your roof to blend with the color of your brick or siding? Or, do you want your roof to contrast with your brick/siding? Whichever option you choose, ask your roofing expert for advice and samples.
