22+ Popular Shingle Colors for Virginia Homes

Is there any sight more breathtaking than a drive through the Virginia countryside in fall with all of the lovely homes and rooftops peppered against a backdrop of autumn leaves? But as any Virginian knows, our beautiful state boasts some of the most incredible landscapes throughout the year. As a homeowner, almost any roof you choose is going to look fantastic against such a backdrop, which is part of the reason it can be so tough to make a decision!

In this post from Just Roofing in Virginia Beach, we’re breaking down some of the most popular shingle colors for Virginia homes and offering design inspiration to help. Are you thinking of replacing your roof? Give us a call to check out our many shingle designs and samples from Owens Corning, GAF, and Certainteed.

Types of Roofing Shingles

Before we get into shingle colors, it’s important to understand the types of roofing shingles available for Virginia homes. Many homeowners don’t realize how many options they’ve got on the table until they sit down to start making a decision. These days, the range of shingle options is practically limitless.

Although flat roofs, cedar roofs, slate, and tile roofs can be found throughout Virginia, most residential roofs are either made from three-tab shingles or architectural shingles. Think of three-tab shingles as a basic but beautiful option. Many homeowners prefer three-tab shingles because of their affordability and clean, uniform look.

Think of architectural shingles as more of a premium roof design. Architectural shingles create a more dimensional look and are available in a wide range of styles and designs that often mimic traditional wood shingle looks.

Consider Your Siding

One of the most common considerations when choosing a new roof is what will go well with the existing siding. Although more homeowners and design teams are starting to venture out, many choose to go with the “safe” choices that have dominated the housing market for years or even decades.

These are some of the most common combinations according to siding design:

Vinyl Siding: can vary depending on siding color.

Brick Siding: dark gray, charcoal, or black shingles.

Natural Wood Siding: grays, browns, and black shingles.

Check Out Your Area

Although there’s no single roofing color that dominates the Virginia Beach area, it’s always a good idea to base your roof design on what seems to work in your neighborhood. Take a drive around your block armed with a notebook and a phone, and be sure to (respectfully) snap pictures of any roof and siding combinations you’re interested in trying out for your home.
