Your roof can comprise up to 50% of your home's exterior. As you can see from the "before and after" pictures below, what you do with that 50% can have a tremendous impact on the overall look of your home. With that in mind, you should approach your exterior color choices with the same care as you choose interior colors for your home.

Choose A Complementary Color

Owens Corning offers a wide array of distinctive shingle color blends you can use as a design tool to create your own unique exterior decor.

If you look closely at the shingle color blend you choose, you'll see a combination of different colors. For example, a seemingly gray shingle could actually be a blend of gray, green, brown or black granules. By "pulling out" individual granule color(s), and using this color for other exterior elements like siding, paint, trim, brick and entryways, your entire exterior will look coordinated and complementary. And your home's appeal from the street will dramatically increase.

Here are some tips regarding shingle color:

Complementary colors and shades -- highlight any architectural style, bringing out the beauty of brick, siding, exterior paint and trim.

Darker color blends -- provide contrasting color for accenting windows, doors and other architectural elements.

Lighter color blends -- simplify a home's lines and angles, making the home appear larger.

Shingle color isn't the only factor that affects the look of your house. The style of shingle you choose will also help to distinguish your home's exterior.

If you prefer a more consistent, smooth look to your roof, your best bets are Supreme®, Classic® or Prominence® Owens Corning three-tab shingles. Owens Corning Berkshire® Collection, WeatherGuard® HP, and Duration™ Premium dimensional shingles add more visual interest to your roof by giving it a three-dimensional appearance.

    "I am so pleased with the beautiful roof. Not only are the colors perfect, but the roof gives the house a great overall appearance. The way that Vern presented the complete information about the job was professional and impressive. Everything was completed in a timely and proper manner, from the presentation to the application of the shingles, to the clean up. I would highly recommend CS Roofing to everyone! "
