Be Daring.. But Don’t Forget Resale Value
Exterior color choices are long-term decisions, so it’s important to find a balance between selecting a shingle color that fits your personality and taste, as well as considering if it is something you will enjoy ten, fifteen years down the road. At Duane Mainardi Builders, we think the shingle color selection is one of the most important decisions. We have no problem coming to your home, bringing different color full shingles and laying them out on your roof with you so that you can make the right decision.
Think About Your Entire Exterior Portfolio
The secret to finding the perfect shingle color for your home is to consider your overall exterior portfolio. Would you choose new kitchen counter tops without thinking about the overall accent and theme of your kitchen? I don’t think so. Similarly, your roof needs to match the rest of your home’s exterior so that it has a tenacious, attractive design.
Visualize Your Dream Home
Imagine if you could see EXACTLY what each roofing color and style will like on your home. Well, you’re in like my friends! The shingle selection process will be much easier when utilizing visualization tools like the Virtual Home Remodeler. Start exploring color combinations and create your dream home right from the comfort of your very own living room.
Take A Drive
Another great way to get a better feel for any of the type of shingles you like is to hop in your car and drive around your neighborhood. Look closely at the different roofs and see what styles and colors catch your eye. Better yet, if you are interested in seeing a specific color or colors, contact us and let us know. We want to make this a seamless and enjoyable experience for you, so we will be happy to provide you with near-by references in the color(s) you desire!
Listen To Your Gut
“Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out.”
While choosing your shingle color, keep in mind that this is YOUR roof. You will be the one looking at your roof every day. If you absolutely LOVE a specific shingle, or color, don’t settle for anything less and trust your gut instinct. You don’t have to break the bank to have your dream roof either; here at DMB we offer value options and work hand in hand with you to find the roof of your dreams within your personal budget.
