Selecting the color of the shingle for your home roof replacement project is one of the most important aspects of the job and the one that will be the most obvious to you and your neighbors for many years.

Some people have an easy time making a color selection while others can feel a bit overwhelmed with the idea but we have a couple of tips that can go a long way to simplifying the process.

The easiest way to start the process of choosing your new roof is to make sure you are dealing with a contractor who you feel comfortable with and who listens to your needs and desires and how you feel about the different options. With that little bit of information you will probably be able to eliminate about half of the roofing material and color options. 

Here is where your budget starts to work in your favor. Since most folks are working within a budget, you will be able to throw out the roofing materials and styles that are beyond what you have allotted for the new roof, leaving you with a short list of possibilities you think will work for you.

Now it is time to go out and see some real life roofs on real homes so you can see what the roofs look like in real life. We provide our clients with about eight pages of roofing installation addresses we have performed making it easy to go down the list for your area and  see your options outside and in natural light. All roofing materials will look different on different roof angles and depending on how the light hits it. By the way, the best time to look at roofs is during the middle part of the day with the sun overhead. If you go out too early in the morning or too late in the evening all of the different roofs start to look grayish in color and it is hard to detect the true texture some of the materials have.

A lot of people prefer to stay within the neutral color palate for something the size of a roof which can be between 10% and 60% of what someone sees when they look at your home. This can also be of benefit when it comes to choosing paint colors or if you know you may be selling your home at some point in the future.

Below are a couple of roof replacements we completed in Palo Alto using neutral charcoal colored fiberglass shingles that were chosen to compliment the unique charm of these homes without being overwhelming.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about the different roofing material and color options at (408) 957-0531 or you can see additional pictures on our website at http://www.bay101roofinginc.com .

We recently replaced the roof on this downtown San Jose bungalow. The tar and gravel original design was modified to allow for a traditionally hung gutter and downspout drainage system. We also installed the GAF Timberline HD shingle in the Weathered Wood color including the proper ventilation. This simple, quality roofing system will provide the owner many years of stress free protection.
