That is a tough call. The shingle color does play a big part in the overall look and feel of the home. If you were going with this exterior paint color, a grey roof would make the house feel dramatically different. I would encourage you to get good size samples of all that you're considering and lay them out in the sun light before making a decision...

That is exactly what I've been trying to do. Unfortunately, there aren't any homes in my area with GAF Camelot II shingles except one w/ "Charcoal" shingles.
Something in warm tones is my preference but I've been advised to go with a medium grey ("Antique Slate"). If you look through pictures on houzz - in my opinion - that is supported by grey tone roofing. I've seen alot of contrasting cool roof tones w/warm exterior finishes.
Initially I was drawn to brown tone shingle with our exterior finishes but was advised to go with greys. If I can't see samples in the combinations (our exterior finish: cream tone brick w/warm red-brown undertones, "chestnut bronze" window frames and gutters), I may go with a neutral grey-brown mix called "Weathered Wood".

The roofing supplier gave me the names of homes a few hours away from where we live. But, the concern I have is most of these homes were built 1980s-2006 so thus the reason for my question to you about trends. Thanks again for your prespective.

Unfortunately, I do not.... Shed dormer roof on the back to help provide the best headroom possible for the rooms on the back. I typically leave 1 - 2' on each eave to achieve the best architectural look from the sides and back of the house. Hope this helps....

Tough to say. The roof color of "barkwood" works really well with the chocolate brown, aluminum soffit and fascia. I think that it would dramatically change the look to go with a light gray roofing. Would not be my first choice of a roofing color. (just my opinion for what that is worth). Best wishes with your project!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Plan around the elements that are hardest to change. Unless you're doing a complete renovation, surfaces such as roof shingles or tiles, stonework, pathways and driveways will remain in place. Take these into consideration as you select exterior colors. Look for undertones between them that might inform your palette. Are they warm (beige, khaki, brown and rust) or cool (gray, blue and black)? Consider paint colors that will tie these fixed elements together in a harmonious way.
Becky Harris added this to Houzz Call: Show Us Your Paint Makeovers
One of the most dramatic before and afters often happens on the exterior of a home. I'm stuck trying to commit to a palette at the moment myself. When you get the exterior palette right, it makes your house completely shiny and new to you.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to 8 Homes With Exterior Paint Colors Done Right
Here is a basic cottage-style home with a combination of shingles and vertical siding. The main field color is Copley Gray HC-104 by Benjamin Moore. The trim is Elephant Tusk OC-8, also by Benjamin Moore. Note the garage door is also painted the main field color.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Where Did Your House Get Its Look?
2. Shingle. With some reference to classical detailing, the shingle style began to appear under the Victorian umbrella of design in the late 19th century. It ironically stems from medieval architecture — that is, the period of building between the end of ancient classical and the beginning of Renaissance classical. Original shingle was a style before its time; shingle designs emphasized a more open floor plan, a feature so popular today. On this house there are also elements of stick style (note the gable over the entrance porch) and Tudor (note the steep roof formations and varying window shapes). Shingle style is currently very popular in the southeastern United States but can be found in all areas of the country.
