Color and Style Recommendations Please

We are interested in Bellaforté Slate or DaVinci Slate tiles. We are sending pictures of our house. Could you please suggest colours in both styles of tiles.

Thank you very much.

Dear Ms. Goos,

Thank you for providing several images of you home. It made it easier for me to see the brick color on the back of the home and to get an idea of what was blocked by the landscaping in front.

My recommendation is to go with a warm brown slate on your home. I can see how the current color was probably chosen to carry the brick color onto the roof but it is a bit too red to blend in well with your surroundings. 

The color is also not showing your brick off as nicely as a color that blended with the warm tones but was more brown. I recommend either Brownstone or Cambridge.

I like the varied sizes of the Brownstone tiles but the Cambridge would be great too if you like a more uniform look of the Bellaforté product. I would not recommend Single-Width Valoré for your home because I think the size and pattern are too much like your brick and there needs to be more contrast in size and pattern to work well.

If you wanted to go a bit more colorful you could also go with the Aberdeen blend as it would work nicely, too.

I hope that helps you to select your color.
