HELP! Roof shingle/exterior stain colors 80s cedar contemp colonial

2 years ago

Have a northeast 80's vertical cedar contemporary colonial home that's seen better days. Selected a roofer, though now need to choose a Timberline HD shingle color - We're planning on staining the exterior a dark brown/grey following the roofing work, so focused on the brown family of colors ( Barkwood, Driftwood, Hickory, or Weathered Wood) for the shingles - the current tan color is just too light for us, even though it seems to match perfectly. Sadly, we're NOT good at this part (largely why its taken us over 4 years to commit to doing this work!), though Houzz has given us so many great ideas over the years, we figured why note publish a post and see what you guys think. We're incredibly appreciative of any advice/suggestions you're willing to offer. Thanks so much in advance!
