If you’re having a new roof installed, one design aspect to consider is the roof color. While the color of your new roof may not seem instrumental in the overall roof design, it will have a big impact on the overall look of your roof. The color of the roof needs to flatter the color of the rest of your home so that it appears harmonious and attractive.
Your Denver roofing contractor can help you select a color for your new roof. But, ultimately, the choice is yours to make. Here, we’ll discuss the process of choosing the color of your new roof before it’s installed.
Roof shingles come in a dizzying array of colors to satisfy a broad range of tastes and preferences. Homeowners can vary greatly in their aesthetic preferences, so roofing material manufacturers have developed a wide selection of shingle colors and styles. As a Denver homeowner, this is great news for you! While you’ll have many different shingle colors to compare, you’ll also have plenty of choices to match your aesthetic preferences.
The main color families that roof shingles are available in include:
There are many different shades and tones within each color family that you’ll have to choose from. You may be surprised at just how many different shades of gray roof shingles come in!

When choosing roof shingle colors, always start with the color of your home. Your roof should complement the rest of your home, not clash with it. Many people recommend that your roof be at least a shade darker than the rest of your home. However, so long as the colors of your roof and home are complementary, you can experiment with different pairings.
