Getting a new roof for your home is one of the most important decisions you can make. It adds value to your home and increases its curb appeal, but it also increases your home’s energy savings while protecting your home and its occupants from the weather. When it’s time to choose your new roof, it’s important to make the best decision possible.

At J&J Roofing in Roseville, Michigan, our residential roofing contractors offer CertainTeed Select ShingleMaster service. With more than a century of excellence in roofing, CertainTeed represents the very best of what the roofing industry has to offer. We’ve put together this guide to help you make the best decision when it comes to choosing which roofing shingles are right for your home.

1.      Decide on the right color.

There are a number of considerations to take into account when choosing the color of your asphalt roofing shingles. Ideally, the color of your asphalt shingles should coordinate with or complement another color in your home’s exterior.

For example, a red brick home with gray accents would look best with a dark gray roof. Certain colors go also better together than others. Warm colors like brown look better with cream-colored roofs, while gray houses look best with dark gray or black roofs.

2.      Consider the climate.

The color of your shingles can also impact your annual energy costs. A dark roof will absorb more heat, which means you can expect the temperature in your attic to be a little warmer than it would be with a lighter roof. Darker roofs work well in cooler climates with harsher winters and can keep a home a little warmer through a long, cold winter.

3.      Choose the right architectural style for your home.

Choosing the best architectural style for your home and neighborhood can have a powerful impact on its curb appeal. For some homes, the authentic look of slate offered by Belmont is the perfect match for a sharp exterior look.

For many older homes, the classic look of real cedar shake offered by our Landmark series creates a bold and timeless look that will be the envy of the neighbors. With a wide range of colors and styles to choose from and durability to stand up to any weather, the Landmark series is our highest performing shingle.
