There are several things to consider when choosing a color for your roof. Your roof affects the heating and cooling of your entire house. The color of your shingles can affect the temperature of your attic tremendously. This can make a big difference in the heating and cooling cost of your home.
Light colored shingles will deflect the suns rays and keep the temperature down in a hotter climate while darker shingles absorb the suns heat and help homes stay warmer in a cool climate.
Another thing to consider in choosing the color of your roof, look at the color of your house, the color of your trim and if you have brick or stucco. Try to make the color you choose for your roof compliment the colors that you have on the outside of your home. Keep in mind that darker colors make a house look smaller while lighter colors will make it look larger.
