Spanning the Color Spectrum with Brown, Clay, and White Solar Reflective Shingles

Spanning the Color Spectrum with Brown, Clay, and White Solar Reflective Shingles

In bright, sunny climates, homeowners have been previously limited to clay tiled home designs or white coatings applied to asphalt shingles to combat the sun’s rays. Today, with the assistance of modern asphalt innovations, Malarkey can utilize specially engineered roofing granules for solar reflectivity to offer a wide variety of roofing shingle color options to match the home and help keep it cool.

In areas where the sun shines daily for most of the year, home siding and exteriors can be an array of colors and tones. Some evoke sandy, earthen tones to match to a dry landscape. While homes in other warm climates may accent lush vegetation with vivid and vibrant colors. Malarkey’s wide range of cool roofing shingle color options offer blends to unify a property.

Connecting Tones of Terra

Home design in bright climates often attempt to blend into the landscape. The color palettes and textures may seek to match with a dry and arid desert, echoing elements of crimson sandstone or chalky limestone. Malarkey’s Mesquite and Bronzed Mesa blends neutralize a property and allow other elements in the home design to draw attention. For instance, in both images below, the textured stonework intrigue the eye.

  

Beige Blends: A Bridge Between Colors

Soft, neutral exteriors can invite a roof to unify other elements of color in the property. To achieve this bridge between color components, the Tumbleweed and Willow Wood shingle color blends incorporate a diverse palette. This to expands the shingle’s ability to match a wider exterior color palette. In the Tumbleweed roofing shingle color, hues of tan, brown and beige are accented by greys and slate blues reminiscent of a rock and sand. The Willow Wood roofing shingle color also provides a textured appearance to create variation in the home’s presentation and draw interest with a muted tone similar to a Weathered Wood shingle.

  

Coordinating Contrast with White and Grey Hues

Not all home designs strive for neutrality and blending into the landscape, many seek to stand out and add character to the property. Malarkey’s lighter-colored shingle color offerings can be utilized to create a contrast. Dove White and Agave have cool, light grey and white tones while still delivering a slightly textured result. In the images below, bold, vibrant exterior siding colors pop against the light roof and trim. Likewise, these Frosted Granite color pair well with matching exterior while showcasing the surrounding verdant landscape and citrus plants.
