Are you planning to reroof your Minnesota home in the coming year? Before you automatically choose a new version of the existing roof, why not consider changing the shingle color? The right shingle color and siding combination can transform the look of your home’s exterior, adding value and curb appeal.

In this post from The Construction Group, our roofing replacement contractors are breaking down some of the most popular shingle colors for Twin Cities homes.

Follow these tips to choose the right shingles for your home:

1.      Consider dimensional shingle options.

2.      Check out other homes in your area for inspiration.

3.      Look for siding and roof color combination ideas around town, in home design magazines, and on the web.

4.      Create a home design mood board to generate ideas.

5.      Don’t be afraid to think outside the box with high-contrast color designs.

6.      Ask for and test a shingle color at several points throughout the day to understand how lighting will affect your exterior color design.
