This is going to be a big decision because the choices you make will be on your home for many years to come. Take a sneak peek at your options below…


There are literally thousands of color options to choose from when selecting the shingles for your roof.

A good place to start is to check with your homeowner’s association or community organization to see if they have regulations color schemes and layouts. To narrow your options down a little further, look for shingle colors that will complement your siding, brick, or other exterior colors.

Lighter colors tend to make a your home seem larger and more contemporary, while darker choices can create a traditional and cozy feeling. We have a lot of experience with roof design, so don’t be afraid to call us up and ask what colors would best match your home and neighborhood.


Shingles come in a larger variety of styles than you would think. Depending on your budget and taste, styles can completely change the look of your roof.

Since they can be layered to add depth to your roof’s surface, strip roof shingles can also provide a visual texture that is very appealing.
