Help! Overwhelmed by Color Choices…

We are looking to replace the weathered cedar shakes on the front of our home and like the weathered grey look which matches our home best. The back roof is asphalt roofing since it does not show at all.

It is a little overwhelming to choose a color and whether we should use 2 different colors etc. Based on the website and our current roofing the different width shakes look the best.

Dear Ms. Loggins,

From what I can tell from your picture, I think the Bellaforté Verona blend is most similar to the look you have now and say that you like. Your roof would have a similar but refreshed look with this color blend.

Another option that I think would go well with the other colors of your home and landscaping is the Bellaforté Espresso blend. This is a blend of warm brown tones and would give your home a look that would stay looking as good as it does on day 1 for the long life of the roof.

You might consider doing the entire roof in the same color since it will add to the value of your home to have it all the same.

Attached is an image of the two colors I have recommended next to your home. I hope this helps you in making a decision about the color for your roof.
