shingle color

kak112208March 26, 2011

Looking for opinions on what color shingles to use with countrylane red siding. We are going with Owens Corning shingles and are considering driftwood or sanddune? Do you think this will look good or is there another we should consider?

Do you have a pick of the siding?

driftwood looks good with almost anything though it has more blue than tamkos weathered wood.

sanddune is more brown.

What color are your windows and doors. Are you using any other colors or brick or stone?

I was freaking out about my roof color, went back and forth between driftwood and teakwood. Chose driftwood then was really worried because it looked blue against the white house wrap. All and all, I think the driftwood works. Drive around and look at roofs. Pics online aren't always true.

Thank you....we are leaning towards the driftwood. Our windows are going to be white along with the trim. I think we are going to do the LP smartside and paint it a barn red or country red color. We also have stone on the front of the house that has tan/grey/and red hues in it. What do you think?

Here's a pic of my house. The brick is mainly red(boral western sunset) The stone is grey/tan with red. The shake is darker than I wanted but it looked the best with the brick(had freakout moment when the did the soffit over my garage-they did DH's garage first and didn't look that dark)
Just remember all monitors are different.
