Need help picking roof shingle color...

mammenspJuly 14, 2013
So, we have the opportunity to get a new roof on the house we're purchasing and we're down to 2 options... brown and brown (burnt sienna and heatherblend). We want a cottage/cozy look and we have a lot of tree coverage that cast shadows on the roof most of the time so we were thinking about a dark brown roof. The trim is brown too... What's your take on the 2 color options attached? Kinda paranoid about "pulling the trim color" in... anyways, your opinion is most appreciated!

The second one seems more earthy and natural looking. Beautiful home!

Thanks! By the "second one" do you mean Heatherblend? Which one do you think is darker in your opinion? I've been surprised at how friends have described these colors.

They are both basically brown, but the heatherblend has more nuance to it so it adds a subtle texture. Either one will work though.
