What Color Shingles for Your Next Roof?
Believe it or not deciding on what color shingles for your next roof is up to you!
I asked Josh, Exterior Project Manager at JM, about some helpful tips when it comes to roofing. He informed me that one of the questions he gets often in regards to roofs is about what color shingles a home owner should use. Light or dark? Read what Josh had to say about the subject below.
recommended R-value of insulation in our homes in R-49, that's nearly two feet of insulation! That's over 3 times what it used to be 20+ years ago! The insulation acts as a buffer between the heat or COLD in your attic and the living space in your home. Proper intake and exhaust ventilation will circulate the hot or cold moist air in and out of your attic keeping it dry. So when deciding what color shingle, don't sweat the heat. As long as your insulation and ventilation are up to today's standards, the choice in color shingle relies solely on your preference. Chose what works for the house and what works for you. - Josh[/quote]
