Advice From The Experts

A successful exterior design project depends on a tasteful color combination. Here are some simple suggestions for making the best shingle selection:

Observe how much of your roof is visible from the street or common view.

A larger roof looks best in neutral tones. If the roof angle is normal or slight, you can use more colorful shingles or interesting patterns.

Use colors in the same color family as the body of your house for a simple, non-accented combination.

An example is a gray roof on a gray house, whether light or dark gray. Trim in white or black will keep it understated.

Use bright or more colorful colors to make a design statement.

For example, a green roof on a red brick house or a red roof on a gray house.

Avoid using a heavily patterned roof on a home with several different colors in a brick or stone pattern.

This will appear too "busy".

And remember, follow your instinct.

Choose the color and style that make you comfortable. After all, you’re the one looking at it every time you come home!—Patricia Verlodt 


Choosing the best shingle style for your roof can seem overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be if you keep these few tips in mind:

Don’t compromise style for function.

Most homeowners have two roofs in mind—the “dream”roof that fulfills their desire for a specific look, and the “practical” roof that is durable and cost-efficient. GAF’s state-of-the-art shingles satisfy both the heart and the head, offering a variety of colors and styles while providing peace of mind with a Lifetime ltd.warranty.

Choose a shingle that complements your home’s architectural style.

For example, for a Colonial home, select a shingle with a clean line that complements the home’s design. A Victorian house could take on a more colorful or complex design.

The use of colors and textures can create a comfortable feel for your residence.

For example, if focusing on the exterior of a Shingle Style home, adding color and textured design elements make the home much more approachable.
