Black Shingles


A friend is in the process of changing the exterior of his house. He is looking for the blackest looking asphalt shingles he can find (that are of good quality hopefully). Any suggestions of brand/color? He is looking to paint his house a bright white. (this will look pretty cool when he is done)

Thanks in advance for your help

Black Shingles


darker colored shingles translates into more heat from the sun.

Black Shingles


Dark colored shingles "Without" proper balanced ventilation translates into an approximate 40* attic temperature increase as compared to white shingles.

With a properly balanced ventilation system in place, the difference is aroud 10*.

Getting away from pure black or pure white, decreases the temperature gap considerably.

For a 3-tab shingle, probably "Sparkling Black".

For an architectural shingle, probably Certainteeds Landmark "Moire Black".

It still would be best to get samples and view them up front and personal to determine what he likes best.

Black Shingles


they don`t make the celotex "sparkly black" anymore,that was like sequins,do the roof white and paint the house black,just do the doors white also,so you don`t walk into walls at night !
