Tiles or shingles, whatever you want on your roof, always sample test them before making a final decision. For example, never choose the color of tiles online because the color may differ online. Instead, bring a small sample of the roof material at home and test it during day and night time in a different light.
This technique will help in finding the right shade color for your roof. You will observe that the sample of the color that looks good online is not what you prefer in person.
Light color roofing:
Light color roofing helps keep the house cool. If you choose light color shingles for your roof, they will keep your house cool in hot weather. Light color shingles also prevent the growth of algae or any fungus.
Dark color roofing:
The dark color absorbs heat. Dark color roofing is good only in countries that have freezing weather. A combination of dark colors grey brown-green will help.
Color selection according to environment codes:
A professional can guide you on the color code for your roof according to your area. For example, if you are in countries that require 24 hours ventilation, light color shingles will suit you. Light colors are available in a variety of shades. In California-like areas, dark color shingles suit.
