Help me pick shingle color


My siding is a darker brown and gutters are brown. What color roof should I put on? Do you think weathered wood or shenandoah will work? Suggestions?
Tks

When in doubt, go with the darker one.

Many shingle manufacturers have a tool that allows you to upload a picture of your home and compare shingle colors with siding,trim and other building materials.

Personally I prefer shenandoah. It is all personal preference. Get 4 sample shingles of each and place them in and out of the shade and see which you prefer.
