It’s amazing. Homeowners will go to great lengths to choose the color of their walls, carpeting, and furniture. But when it comes selecting the hue of their roof shingles, these same people often are surprisingly indifferent. Not that they’re committed to drab coloration for their rooftop. It’s just that most people think that the natural tone of rooftop shingles is something in the neighborhood of gray. But in today’s world, those limitations just don’t hold. A qualified Orange County roofing company can install shingles in a variety of colors. Yes, your rooftop can be something much more interesting than ho-hum.
Before deciding what type of shingles an Orange County roofer should install, consider the style of your home. Shingle coloration that works perfectly for a sleek contemporary showplace may be all wrong for a classic colonial. Know well in advance how your color choice fits the style of your current residence. Also important to know is how it will look from afar. In today’s real estate market, suitable curb appeal is critical. An appealingly-colored rooftop adds to your home’s street-view attractiveness – and therefore to its value in the marketplace. This is especially important if you’re planning to sell down the road.
If you’re not sure what colors work best, a neighborhood exploration could provide welcome insights. Journey through your community to get a sense of what works. You might, for instance, reside in Mission Viejo. Explore the local streets to see what grabs you. This will save time and energy when you finally enlist the services of a Mission Viejo roofer to install new shingles.

How True! My wife and I went for a drive this weekend focusing specifically on roof colors and textures and how they fit with the paint and finishes of the homes themselves. It was pretty amazing as there really were not a lot of homes we thought did a great job. We just never really gave this "new roof" tip much thought. Thanks for the tip!
Not only is it color, the textures and dimension of the texture is another facet of the look of a home. There are even asphalt shingles that now create dimension similar to larger tiles. It's really pretty cool what technology is bringing to the world of roofing.
Couldn't agree more Josh. There are so many roof types and color combinations today that roofs have truly become part of the design of the overall house and not just a way to keep the rain out.

Another consideration with regards to the roof color and look is what paint color you are planning for your house now or in the future. Choosing a roof color that doesn't clash with upcoming house colors might make a lot of sense.
