Shingle Color for New Roof?


I am going to be replacing my roof and need some advice on the shingle color. I will be going with IKO Marathon AR 25 shingles. I have a brick house but the brick is painted white. It is an old house and has a very steep roof. I am deciding between the Harvard Slate color or Charcoal Gray. I think both will look good but any feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

It's tough to tell a complete stranger what color roof you should go with. It all depends on what colors you want to accent on your home. Obviously the gray shingle colors are neutral enough that they won't clash with the painted brick on your house. I agree that either color is acceptable. Maybe if you are thinking of changing the house color in the near future, you should consider other options.

IKO?


Well I will not slander againast the company in fear of a law suit, I would recommend you do a little research into that brand choice.


White matches everything. Good luck.
