If you are ready for a new roof on your Savannah home, you have several decisions to make before making the final step of major investment. While choosing the type and quality of the shingle is extremely important, your choice of color is a detail to be considered seriously. Choosing the “right” color will improve your satisfaction with a roofing job well done. After all, it will be a decision you will live with for years to come.
What Color Should My New Roof Be?
Consider these factors when picking the perfect shade for your new shingles:
- Our Climate in Savannah. The color of your roof has a direct impact on the temperature in your attic. In some cases, it could be a temperature difference of up to 40 degrees. Choosing a white or light colored shingle instead of a darker color will help reflect sunlight from your roof and keep your home cooler.
- Color Coordination with Existing Elements. Choose a color for your new roof that will not clash with the existing siding. Black or dark gray shingles go well with white, blue, or gray-colored homes. If your home is yellow, green or red, you could consider shingles in black or in shades of brown or gray.
- Curb Appeal. Consider the style of the roofs in your neighborhood. Your favorite color may not mesh and no one wants to be “that house” on the street. Choosing a neutral color such as tan, gray, cream, or brown may help maintain your home’s resale value and is a safe way to stay in favor with your neighbors.
