    Default What roof and trim color for this house (pics attached)

    What asphalt shingle product and color would you recommend for this mock tudor, and what color trim? The attached photos show the house and a close-up of the brick colors.

    I'm leaning toward a dark brown trim to go with the tudor style, and Tamko heritage vintage shingles in a dark brown or maybe charcoal (shown at the address below):

    Hi - Sorry but I really can't answer your question as you would like since the photos are small and difficult to really see all the colors.

    I will advise you of this. DO NOT use white on your house - not trim or anywhere - even the windows. There is too much of a contrast. Instead choose a soft color that will blend with the bricks. By looking at the bricks, I might suggest a tan. You need to also take the mortar into consideration.

    Remember also a very light tan may read white against the brick. Try some sample spots.

    The part that confuses me is that it seems there is gray stone also, but it could be just hard to tell.

    Try some sample paints and take your time deciding.

    Good luck,
    Ken
