Simple Tips for Selecting the Right Roof

CertainTeed’s Integrity Roof System™ approach answers all your questions about buying a new roof.

Maybe you’re not quite sure where to start? Or maybe you have reroofed your home before, but you need to brush up on some of the latest products and procedures?

Your decision to reroof your home may have been the result of seeing a neighbor reroof their home. Or maybe you’ve been experiencing some roofing problems which can no longer be ignored. Then again, maybe you’ve decided just to give your home a face lift and a new roof would really enhance the look. Whatever the reason, you don’t want to make any costly mistakes!

Here are some simple tips to follow:

1.    Think big – View a full-sized shingle, not just a swatch or sample.

2.     Be real – Look at actual houses where the house and roof color combinations are similar to what you’re considering.

3.    Watch the light – As you look, notice how colors appear under changing light conditions and at various times of day.

4.    Consider the pitch – Look for roofs with a similar pitch to your own.  A roof’s pitch affects the way you see its color.

5.    Ask your contractor – They might be able to point you to a home where they’ve installed a roof of your style and color.
