Your roof is one of the most important aspects of your home’s exterior, and selecting the best color for your shingles will ensure that your house looks beautiful.
Choose a color that complements the color of your home. Our Skysail Mabati can be used to contrast with your siding materials or to blend in with the rest of your home’s design elements.
Stick with gray, brown, or black shingles if you want to go the traditional route. Choose reddish-orange or lighter tan shades for a contrasting pop of color.
You can also use a color combination, such as gray and black or tan.
Use your mabati to highlight the architectural style of your home. Drive around a few neighborhoods to get a sense of what color roofing would look best on your house. Look for houses that are similar in size, shape, and color to yours.
Install a “cool roof” to increase the energy efficiency of your home. Choosing an energy-efficient roof can reduce the temperature of your attic by 20-40 degrees.
If you live in a residential neighborhood, check the rules regarding shingle colors. Read the rules of your local homeowners association carefully to ensure that your choice of roofing color does not violate any regulations.
Inquire about the mabati with a certified roofer or contractor. Send photos of your home’s exterior to a certified roofer or contractor. Browse catalog options or bring shingle samples home to see them in person.
