Choosing an Asphalt Roof Color
Choosing the right roofing shingle makes all the difference when it comes to your property’s appearance and curb appeal. While personal preference certainly plays a role, other property owners want to match an existing shingle or need to abide by homeowner’s association rules for asphalt roof color. Here, we review your top considerations when it comes to making the best pick for your home or office location in the Tampa area.
Selling or Staying?
Some homeowners and business owners are in their dream location and plan on staying put. If this is the case, you may have more flexibility when choosing your roof’s color and can get creative when it comes to different palettes and shingle styles to suit your personal preferences.
However, if you’re planning on selling, you may consider sticking with a more neutral-toned asphalt roof. These conventional options are easier to work with when it comes to updating siding and trim, and will appeal to a larger range of buyers when your property is on the market.
Complement Your Architecture
You may consider your structure’s particular style when deciding on an asphalt roof color. If you have a contemporary home with lighter colors, you can go for a darker or more dramatic roof. If you have an office location in a more traditional style or one with brick siding, you can opt for lighter grays, browns or greens. Houses or buildings with white siding can pair well with virtually any roof color, while houses with wood siding often look best with darker browns, blacks or greens.
