Color and Product Help

We are considering Multi-Width Slate in Castle Gray, Brownstone or European. In Multi-Width Shake, options seem to be Weathered Gray or custom colors. Bellaforté Shake: Weather Gray-VariBlend or Tahoe-VariBlend.

Need help. Please see attached pics. What product do you think works best on our home and what color? Big decision.

Dear Mr. Stertzer,

My recommendation would be either the Brownstone-VariBlend or Slate Gray-VariBlend. You mentioned you were considering Castle Gray-VariBlend, which could also work but I like the slightly darker color Slate Gray against the body of your home a bit more.

Both Brownstone or Slate Gray will work equally well with your style and color of your home. I like the warmth of tones in the Brownstone with your brick. I have attached an image of another home with this roof so you can see what I mean since it is difficult to see it in the small swatch.

On the other hand the Slate Gray is a classic choice that matches your home stately appearance. You just have to choose which color appeals to you more since you won’t go wrong with either choice.
