Roofing Color Advice


It's been 12 years looking at my old roof and finally it is time to replace it. My home has light grey vinyl siding and blue shutters. I am unsure what color roof to install that will make the house pop. I am open to replacing the shutters with a different color if necessary. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Please see attached photo of the house! Thank you!

Go on any major paint companys web site and look for the area where you can down load a picture of your house and change the colors.

Personally, I'd stick with something similar to what you have.
If you want something to "pop", I'd think about painting the door, trim, or shutters.
It would be a lot easier to change if you find you don't like it.

Edited to add: Do you really want to be known as the house with the purple roof?

A grey / black shingle would be great. But are you saying your roof is only 12 years old?

Just getting rid of those plan jane 3 tab shingles will make a big differance.
Also concider add a ridge vent instead of those gable vents.
