The roof of your house is so much more than just quality shingles or a competitive price – you want the exterior of your home to reflect who you are. And when you match Owens Corning shingles with Pantone fashion colors, you’ll create a home that is as unique as you and your family!
Color does so much more than create an aesthetic quality — it can provide the mood and personality of your home. Think about the colorful art deco palette of Miami’s South Beach or the classic baby pink, mint green and turquoise-colored kitchen appliances of the 1950s. You immediately get a vivid sense of the mood that those particular colors create.
Before settling on a color for your roof shingles, consider these tips:
Color theme of your neighborhood - Keep in mind the overall colors of your neighborhood. While you don't have to match your neighbors, you may want to choose colors that work well with the area.
Architecture of your home - Think about the style of your home. A sleek, modern house will dictate different color needs than a quaint Victorian home.
Landscaping of your house - Depending on whether your landscaping is conservative or wild, you may want to coordinate your shingle (as well as house) colors with that.
Color of your front door or siding - Consider shingle colors that will complement the current color of both the siding and the front door. It's important to make sure these colors looks great together!
Each season, the Pantone Fashion Color Report is paired with Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration Series Shingles to offer homeowners a “fashion-forward foundation” to help you discover an exterior for your house that represents your family’s unique style.
“Every Owens Corning shingle color is the result of a meticulous formulation process. Pantone's team of color specialists creates unique blends of colored granules designed to pair beautifully with a wide range of exterior colors.”
Here are some recommendations from Pantone for colors based on the shingle’s granule:
2017 Shingle Color of the Year: Sedona Canyon
“Inspired by nature, Owens Corning Sedona Canyon is warm and reminiscent of real wood shake shingles, but much more nuanced. Burnt umber, chestnut and butterscotch hues mingle with a twist of calming blue to deliver a color experience that is both grounded and versatile, no matter the season.”
Spring 2016: Fiesta & Merlot
TruDefinition Duration Designer Shingles
“Strong and fiery, the vivid Fiesta is a yellow-based red that provides a high-energy contrast to this season’s palette. Merlot shingles, featuring rich burgundy and hints of blue and cool charcoal, are the perfect companion.”
“Color connects us to our surroundings and influences how we feel. The talk of color is heightened each season as the latest fashion color trends are unveiled by the Pantone Color Institute. These fashion colors can be used to express yourself on the exterior of your home, too. Let our roof and fashion color pairings inspire you to bring your own style to life.”
Fall 2016: Warm Taupe & Sand Dune
TruDefinition Duration Designer Shingles
“Warm Taupe is a hearty, pleasing and approachable neutral that pairs well with other Fall 2016 season colors. It suggests reassurance and stability; it is a timeless, trusted, organic and grounded color. This pairs well with the tan, taupe and pale blue tones of Sand Dune shingles for a relaxing combination.”
“Fashion colors can flow through our lives with relative ease — they may become our next trench coat, couch pillows or bedroom paint colors. We believe your favorite fashion colors can also migrate to the exterior of your home and coexist with your shingle color.”
When it comes to transforming a house into a home, it’s the details that count. Owens Corning shingles come in a variety of colors, from bold to neutral to trendy, which means that you'll always find the perfect color pairing for your family's home.
