I thought this list may help people who are not certain but also help roofers better help their customers decide.

1. For the average, traditional house, stay away from an overtly coloured roof. Here are some exceptions, notice they are very customized to the specific style of the home.

2. If the style of your home does not dictate choosing a colour choose a dark neutral. This is the one place where your roof colour should be neutral and not colourful. 

3. If you have a stone or brick house that will never change colour, that's when your roof colour should be very carefully chosen.

4. If you have brick or stone or both on your home, that's when the colour of your roof becomes the most important decision you will make regarding the exterior colours of your home. And that's when a custom colour will most likely be required over black or brown.

5. A general guideline to follow when choosing an asphalt roof is to choose a darker colour than the body of your house. There's something grounded and solid about the look that I think really works and reads more classic. Unless of course your house is a very dark colour or as we saw above, there's more roof than siding, then a lighter roof is necessary.

That is actually a nice lay out. I am going to print it up and use it myself because there are some picky people out there.

I just close my eyes and point at something.  It seems to always work and I can never decide anything.  I have a hard time deciding which Little Debbie's to eat every day.
