Making the choice on your roof comes down to what it is made of and color.

Materials can range from asphalt, clay, slate, wood, metal and impact-resistant shingles, each with their own advantage. Asphalt shingles are the most common because they are easy to install and cost the least. Metal Roofs offer style, colors and longevity.

Shingle colors should depend on a couple of factors, including climate, resale value and neighborhood rules. If you live in very sunny, warm areas you may want to consider lighter shingles that reflect more light than they absorb. The opposite is true for colder climates, where dark shingles are good absorbers of light and heat.

You will also want to consider the style of your shingles and whether they will increase the value of your home. This will depend on the type of home, but generally, more neutral-colored shingles are safest.

It’s almost important to see how your house fits in with surrounding houses, and if your neighborhood association has any rules concerning house aesthetics.
