Asphalt remains the most commonly used material for residential homes, with its popularity based on its affordability and versatility when it comes to aesthetics and design. Asphalt shingles also boast a broad color palette compared to its contemporaries.
Here are the most popular color trends for asphalt roofs.
Deep, strong colors are a popular color trend for asphalt shingles. Specifically, strong neutral colors that contrast with the equally strong body color of the house. The effect, while eye-catching, is rather straightforward: the two-tone effect on the house showcases the house and gives a nice contrast between the roof and the exterior walls.
Warm and Earthy
Another popular color trend is brown and red asphalt shingles. This color combination exudes a warm and earthy glow that persists well after sunrise, giving the house a cheerful aura that’s as warm as it is inviting. A warm color palette makes the roof less susceptible to heating compared to darker colors.
Homeowners looking for a darker colored asphalt roof have an alternative in gray. Gray-colored shingles are “lighter” than a solid black roof, which means they aren’t as susceptible to heating. From the curb, the gray-colored roof also gives a nice contrast to a house with a light-colored body.
