Architectural shingles or tin roof in considering resale value ? I added a photo of my home.


We are having to think about putting a new roof on our home in the not too distant future. Around these parts, tin roofs are popular as they are less expensive and last a long time, plus add so much character too. However, the architectural shingles are lovely in design and best quality. We have a steep pitch roof on our home, but I have been thinking of a red brick color tin roof to match the red brick that is on our home. What colors do you suggest? I do love hearing the rain on the roof too. Can you help me decide? The classic black is always lovely too in architectural shingles.

    Hi Sha, Thank you! I should have used an up close photo. Great suggestions! My husband had knee surgery and we have 10 brick steps to the front of the house. Just thinking about our old age LOL. If we stay, may go with the tin, but not if we move.

    Hi Jackie,Yes, we have friends who have a lovely log cabin style home with a red roof, and it looks so lovely. Our home may not look right with the red tin roof though, is what I am trying to figure out LOL. I may need to stay classic with it. Ran ou

    Hi MizB, That red sounds perfect. We need to borrow billybuc's goats. We don't have a riding mower. My husband just had knee surgery. It's not that large of a hill, actually, just where I stood down at the bottom makes it look larger. Thank you!

    Thanks for correction Bob! I'm going fm "spiritual" questions to "carnal" questions & I should not mix the 2! Home better on hill water drains downhill! I agree, lawn mowing is chore but one must pay for pleasures one way or another!

    Come on down, dear Paula! Woo, I can gobble up some pasta salad. That is our large front garage there, attached to the home, and my husband has his big separate man garage in the back to the right of our home, not shown here. True, may tire of red.

    Thank you, Norine, for such encouragement and insight into this decision. A lot to think about, but I do love the character of the tin roof, and there are so many colors to choose from too. Appreciate you!
