After a shutdown year of pandemic restrictions, 2021 marked the return to some normal activities and for some folks, that included researching the most popular shingle color for their new homes! We were kept busy this year as people finally got around to those exterior home improvement projects that they had put off in 2020.
Before we get to our “Most Popular Shingle Color of 2021,” here’s a little more about it. It is made by GAF, one of the shingle brands we proudly offer roofing customers here at Pro-Home Services. We have trusted GAF for years. We know that when we put GAF Timberline® shingles on our customer’s roofs we are using a product made by a company that stands behind what they make. The brand has won many awards for innovation and is also highly rated by homebuilders because of its dependability and warranty. In fact, a 2019 survey of 380 real estate agents and certified appraisers of single-family homes showed that upgrading a roof using GAF Timberline® shingles can increase the value of a home by 10%!
And now, presenting our most popular shingle color of the year…(drumroll please)..
This seemed to be the color on everybody’s list this year and with good reason. With an appearance that resembles weathered cedar shake and a neutral color that goes with almost anything, GAF’s weathered wood shingles add a touch of pizazz to any roof.
The main color of the Weathered Wood shingle can be described as brown or beige. However, it subtly sports hints of a deeper, grayish tone as well. For some, the color combination creates more versatility for coordinating with various siding and brick colors than some of the shingle line’s closest competing colors, like the deeper hued Mission Brown or reddish-tinged Hickory.
One of the hallmarks of GAF’s Timberline® HDZ shingles is their architectural design, which adds visible dimension and interest to their shingles. With a built-in shadowing effect, this shingle is not only one of the best ones for appearance, but also for wear and durability of materials.
