A shingle roof used to leave you with relatively few choices, but the extensive palette available today gives you a range of options. Pastel pinks, blues and greens create a lively contrast with neutral white or gray and pay homage to South Florida’s love of color. You might prefer to keep your shingle roofing neutral instead, saving vivid color for your stucco or siding. Because you probably won’t replace your shingle roofing before you repaint, neutral hues will give you more versatility.
If you’re going with neutrals, select hues that blend well with your favorite colors. Do sunny yellows, tangy oranges and rich reds make you happy? Pick complementary warm hues such as warm French gray or tan for your shingle roofing. Keep things cool by pairing blues and purples with shingle roofing in pale gray. Sandstone and taupe hues are true neutrals that incorporate flecks of warm and cool colors in their grit, making them a good choice with any shade of paint.
