Shingle Roof Color Ideas for Minnesota Homes

Shingle Roof Color Ideas for Minnesota Homes

June 2023 by Heartland Roofing Siding and Windows

Are you looking to replace your old shingle roof in Minnesota? If so, you want to explore a variety of color options that will complement your home’s exterior. Whether you recently repainted your house or simply want to enhance its appeal, let’s delve into some shingle roof color ideas specifically tailored for Minnesota homes.

The Importance of Shingle Color
The roof comprises a significant portion of your property’s visual exterior, accounting for nearly half of its overall appearance. It’s the first thing you, your neighbors, and passersby notice. Therefore, selecting the right shingle color is crucial for achieving outstanding curbside appeal.

Considering Geographic Location and Shingle Colors
The way light interacts with your roof greatly influences the choice of shingle color. As the sun hits at different angles across the country, geographic location plays a vital role in determining the most suitable color.

If you reside closer to the equator, where the sun’s angle is more overhead, you may want to opt for lighter shingles like gray or white. These colors can complement the unique filter of light in such regions while reflecting some of the heat away from your home.

In Minnesota, however, the sun’s angle is distinct. This region experiences half a year of cold weather, and during clear, bitterly cold days, you may want to maximize the sun’s warmth. Darker colors such as black, brown, or dark blue absorb heat, helping to keep your home warmer. Yet, it’s important to note that summers in Minnesota can still get quite hot, so if you choose a dark color, it might absorb unwanted heat during a fraction of the year.

Understanding Shingle Color’s Impact on Your Home
Here’s a brief overview of how shingle color can affect your home:

  1. Lighter-Colored Shingles:
    Light gray or white shingles reflect light and help reduce heat inside the house. They are commonly recommended for climates with year-round sunshine or higher temperatures, but they may not be as prevalent in Minnesota.
  2. Darker-Colored Shingles:
    Black, blue, and brown shingles retain heat and are less reflective, resulting in a warmer interior. They are a suitable option for colder climates like Minnesota, especially when winter temperatures are a concern. However, it’s worth noting that lighter colored roofs can also be beneficial in the region’s hot summers.

Consider Your Home’s Style
When selecting a shingle color, it’s essential to consider the architectural style of your Minnesota home. Does it feature a sturdy foundation of bricks with varying hues of red, or is it adorned with luxurious wood siding? The style and era of your home play a significant role in choosing a color that complements its overall aesthetics.

For example, if your home boasts beautiful red brick, darker colors like black and dark gray can perfectly enhance its cool tone. On the other hand, if you have recently installed beige-toned fiber cement siding, a light brown shingle would provide a perfect accent to the soft neutral color.

Partner with Heartland Roofing Siding and Solar for Your Roofing Needs
Once you’ve determined the ideal shingle color for your roof, you’ll need the expertise of certified professionals for a hassle-free installation. If you require assistance in selecting the right style and color for your shingle roof, we can help you make the best choice for your house.
