Shingle colors???

12 years ago

I'm getting the roof fixed in the farm house that I am purchasing. But I am having a hard time trying to get a good color match due to the vinyl siding. I do not want black shingles as they get hotter than lighter colored ones, and the heat can lower the lifespan of the shingles.

So, I need ideas for this color house


The seller is paying for the repairs on everything per my inspection today. But I get the wonderful task of picking shingle colors. White is out of the question lol

And any difference in getting 3-tab shingles or architect shingles? Which is better? I have that choice too.
