Product: Bellaforté Slate – Castle Gray?


Dear Mr. Hengen,

The Bellaforté Slate is an excellent choice for the style and size of your home.

Gray looks like a nice complement to your stonework on your home. I think you can go with the Castle Gray that you selected but just make sure that from a distance the color of your stone and roof do not appear to look the same or both have a distinct pattern.

You want these two elements to have the same tones but you do not want them to look identical or very similar from a distance. You still want the two elements to stand on their own while coming together to create a cohesive look.

If you think the stone and Castle Gray are too close you could go with a color that has less pattern and more subtle color variations such as the Slate Gray-VariBlend or Smokey Gray-VariBlend. Either of these would also be a nice choice to top off your home.

I hope that gives you the information you need to make your final decision.
