One of the most exciting things about getting a new asphalt roof is choosing the color! There are so many options to choose from, this may be one of the most complex decisions. What are the new color trends for 2023, and what are the most popular colors to choose from in Great Falls?
In October 2022 Owens Corning introduced Midnight Plum as the Shingle Color of the Year (SCOTY). According to businesswire.com, “This gorgeous shade of gray with rich purple undertones is a first-of-a-kind for shingle color palettes,” said Sue Burkett, strategic marketing leader and senior color expert at Owens Corning.
Owens Corning states “When one day finishes and another begins, inky blues deepen into rich purples, filling the night sky with a sense of wonder and possibility. That’s the power of Midnight Plum. With regal violet shades and elegant touches of silver, this new hue is a distinctive yet versatile choice for homeowners.”
