How can you choose the best roof shingle color for your home or business? Some roofing contractors will tell you that there is no difference – that all colors are the same. But that’s simply not true. The color of your roof can have a significant impact on the overall look of your property, and it’s important to choose a color that compliments the style of your home or business. Let’s dive into the most popular roof shingle colors for a Panama City roof.

So what are the most popular roof shingle colors for 2023? We’ve put together a list of the top colors, based on our experience working with residential and commercial clients (note: these exact colors are the names of the GAF shingles. These may vary in other brands):

  • Charcoal– this really pops on white houses!
  • Slate Gray
  • Pewter Gray
  • Shakewood—sand, taupe, desert
  • Barkwood—autumnal brown, tree bark, weathered wood

If you’re not sure which color is right for your property, we recommend getting a quote from a reputable roofer. They will be able to give you an estimate based on the size and style of your home or business and help you choose a color that will complement your property.

The Impact of Dark Roof Colors on Your Utility Bills

If you’re considering whether to install a dark roof, it’s important to factor in utility costs. A dark roof can increase your utility prices, as it absorbs more heat than a lighter-colored roof. As a result, your air conditioning costs may be higher in the summer. You may be able to offset these additional costs by installing solar panels. Be sure to get a quote from a qualified roofer before making a final decision.

Roof Color Regulations in Your Neighborhood

If you live in Panama City, it’s important to find out if there are any regulations on roof colors from your HOA or neighborhood. The best way to do this is to contact a trusted roofing contractor in the area. They will be able to tell you what the best roofing options are for your home.

Drive Around and See How Different Colors Look

When deciding on a new roof, it’s important to take into account the climate and geographic location of your home. For example, if you live in Panama City, you’ll want to consider how the intense sunlight will affect the color of your shingles. Drive around your neighborhood and look at the different roofing colors to get an idea of how yours will look in this geographic location and in the sunlight. Be sure to consult with a trusted roofing contractor to get the best results for your home.
