Selecting the perfect shingle color for your home is no easy task. Shingle colors should enhance the overall beauty of the home, increase the home’s value, improve curb appeal, and showcase the homeowner’s personal style. At TAMKO Building Products LLC, we know that selecting the right shingle color can be quite the challenge. By thoroughly researching all available options for roof shingle colors, you can craft a roof that perfectly complements your home and your own unique sense of style.

Research TAMKO Shingles Colors Online

If you’re interested in adding warmth and dimension to the roof of your home, the first step in the selection process is visiting to perform color and performance research. From here, you can navigate the website to discover your personal favorite color and style from our wide array of impressive TAMKO shingles colors and types.

For example, TAMKO’s popular Heritage® shingle series offers homeowners the opportunity to choose from a variety of vivid colors and textures sure to enhance their roof. Utilizing a unique granule mix, distinct color drops, and blended shadowtone, the shingle color comes together to produce impressive color blends with a variety of amazing options. It’s important to note that not all colors may be available in all regions of the country, so make sure to consult with a contractor in your area to confirm.

Our Heritage shingle series features two popular color collections to meet the need of any homeowner style:

    America’s Natural Colors: Inspired by the natural beauty of the land we love, America’s Natural Colors features bold highlights and dramatic contrast that offers homeowners the chance to explore woodsy browns, stormy greys, and a variety of lively tones discovered in nature.

    Classic Colors Selection: Offering an assortment of classic colors that deliver a harmonized, clean look, these traditional shades are subtle and sophisticated and deliver the perfect rustic hues and earth tones to make yours the most charming home on the block

Visualize Your Project with TAMKO

Once you have selected a few of your favorite TAMKO® shingle colors, you can visualize your project by using an online tool where you can customize a sample home that resembles the look of your home. You can then choose from a wide assortment of TAMKO shingle types, styles, and colors to create a sample version of the roof that perfectly represents your unique style. It’s important to note that the rendering also allows you to choose the type of wall that exists on your home (brick, siding, stone) to complement your color selection. Better yet, use a brand new TAMKO visualizer tool that allows homeowners to customize a photo of their home with the TAMKO shingles of their choice.

If you’re not blown away by your own customization, you can go a step further and reach out to our talented team of designers for a realistic visualization of your home with the color and style of TAMKO shingles being considered.

See the Real Thing

Customizing a sample home can help you narrow down your selection to the perfect color and shingle style; however, before making that critical final choice, we encourage homeowners to visit an actual roof of the same shingle color and style. Furthermore, you should make sure that the finished product came from the same manufacturing plant that will source the shingles your roofing contractor will be using for your home. By leveraging the experience of a TAMKO® Pro certified contractor, you can gain critical insight into your final shingle color options and they can even show you some real-life examples of their finished work. After selecting the perfect shingle color for your roof, we recommend you also have your contractor open a bundle for you to view the shingle color prior to installation to ensure it’s your desired color.
