Color and Resale of Roofs

You don’t have to use color on your roof to put your home at risk. To make the best impression, you need to have a well-designed exterior color palette. This includes your roof. The best impression may not be beige and beige on the outside of the house, as it was in 1990.

Today, the safe may be gray on gray outside and inside, but I urge you to think about how adding a bit of color to your home can make it more interesting. It could transform your home from being safe into something striking. This applies to your roof, in a well-executed exterior color palette.

If you’re unsure about picking a dramatic roof color, but you need to have it replaced now because you know you won’t be living in the house for 5 years, I recommend choosing a color with a mass appeal so you can reach as many buyers as possible. Roofing shingles are available in a variety of colors, including gray shingles with multiple granule colors. This allows you to use different colors on your home’s exterior and in your overall design.

Here are some shingle colors in gray

  • Estate Gray
  • Colonial Slate
  • Sierra Gray
  • Slatestone

If you don’t have an immediate plan, I advise you to go ahead and do what is best for you, not for someone you haven’t met yet on a future date. You never know, you might end up choosing the most popular option for what you love.
