Need Help Finding Alternative to All Black Roof…


I've asked Crystal to come up with some alternatives to an all-black roof.

Thanks – Bob

Hi Bob,

A black roof could certainly work on your home but I can understand why you would prefer something a little different to set your home apart. I would still recommend that you stay in the black/gray range of colors but there are other options.

I think Slate Gray could be a nice choice in Multi-Width Slate. The color would blend nicely with your brick and shake as well as pick up on the black trim around the windows and on your door.

Another gray such as combination of Dark and Medium Gray could also work. I like the warmer/brown gray tones slightly better than the cooler/bluish grays based on the photos. Look at the samples of the colors outside your home to determine which color will look best.

Once you decide on your roof gray, I would suggest changing the blue paint on the stairs and porch to a gray that blends with the roof color to give the exterior a cohesive look. 

You have a lovely home and I hope this helps you to pick the perfect roof color.
