7 Durable & Stylish GAF Shingle Colors to Consider in 2024

Written by

Believe it or not, choosing the right color of roof shingles for your home is important. The right shingle color can decrease your roof’s surface temperature by up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit and make or break your home’s overall curb appeal.

While the color of your roof shingles isn’t necessarily as important as roof shingle quality, it is something you’ll want to take the time to consider. There are a lot of options available to homeowners today, and those shingles are going to be with you for roughly 25 years — which is a considerable commitment.

When it comes to quality, GAF roofing materials are known to be among the best roof material manufacturers, which includes Owen Cornings. So it isn’t a question of whether or not you want to invest in one of the many GAF shingle styles — it’s which GAF shingle colors you’ll be choosing from.

Ready to install a new roof with quality products?

Below we’ll walk you through the seven most stylish GAF shingle colors of 2024.

1. Weathered Wood

Weathered Wood just so happens to be one of the most popular shingles colors by GAF on the market today and will continue to reign in its popularity throughout 2024.

Here’s what you need to know about GAF’s weathered wood shingles:

  • The Weathered Wood takes on a grayish-brown hue that balances both cool and warm tones. This makes it a neutral choice with a natural aesthetic. 
  • Weather Wood’s natural aesthetic is suited for all home exterior styles and color schemes. It especially meshes well with landscaping.
  • These asphalt shingles come from the company’s Timberline HDZ line, which makes them architectural shingles — and quite durable.

2. Charcoal

GAF’s Charcoal asphalt shingles can be found throughout their various lines of 3-tab shingles. They take on a dark gray appearance that can look black in the shade. Charcoal-colored shingles have always maintained their popularity among homeowners throughout the years — and for several good reasons:

  • Charcoal creates a timeless and classic aesthetic by taking on a darker hue.
  • Charcoal is also versatile. As the sun shifts, it produces varying shades, which adds depth to the 3 tab shingles.
  • The darker shade of charcoal matches virtually every style of home and siding color, and that’s in addition to landscaping.
  • The Charcoal shingle color is also considered a “safe” choice as it blends in seamlessly with most aesthetics while providing high-end curb appeal.

3. Hickory

The Hickory color shingles by GAF are considered a standard option, just like charcoal, as they provide a choice for homeowners that matches virtually all aesthetics. 

Homeowners should consider GAF’s Hickory shingles if:

  • They want a roof with a fresh visual appeal as these shingles have a rich, dark brown color with reddish undertones that add depth.
  • They have white siding or light-colored siding, as the hickory coloring will allow a contrast that pops.
  • They are interested in a modern aesthetic while maintaining their home’s curb appeal.

4. Shakewood

Shakewood is also part of the Timberline shingles offering, making them architectural shingles. Shakewood shingles have several color variations including:

  • Light brown
  • Tan
  • Taupe
  • Beige

All of these neutral shingle colors come together to provide a neutral look. Homeowners looking for asphalt shingles that provide a subtle contract between their new roof and siding usually turn to the shakewood shingle color. It’s peaceful and meshes well with white, cream, and brown-colored siding. 

5. Biscayne Blue

When it comes to uniqueness, the Biscayne blue shingle color offers something that’s bold, elegant, and inviting. Biscayne Blue offers a deep blue that’s incredibly popular among homeowners and business owners alike. 

The Biscayne Blue shingles are available under GAF’s Ultra HD Collection. These asphalt shingles integrate an additional protective layer to the granules that protect against fading and discoloration, maintaining that blue hue throughout time.

6. Hunter Green

The Hunter Green shingles were designed to promote harmony with nature and give off a sense of sustainability and renewal. GAF’s Hunter Green shingles take on a deep, dark green color that mimics that of summer tree leaves with a vibrancy that will last. 

Hunter Green may not seem like a first choice, but it’s incredibly popular among homeowners that:

  • Have light-colored siding, especially light blues, white, and even light gray. 
  • Are looking to brighten up their home’s exterior.
  • Want an aesthetic that blends in with the tree tops and remains vibrant throughout the fall and winter seasons.

7. Patriot Red

Patriot Red is considered GAF’s most exciting shingle color option as it can provide a bold, modern, or classic aesthetic. This shingle color goes beyond the traditional offerings to bring homeowners a way to add flair to their roofline that catches the eye without being too overwhelming.

Patriot Red shingles are especially striking when installed on homes with white siding. However, softer gray, tan, full yellow, and cream siding colors also work well with this deep, ruby red shingle color.

Which Shingle Color Options Are Right For You?

GAF offers plenty of different shingle colors aside from the above-listed shingle colors that are increasing in popularity into 2024. Of course, as you narrow down your color options, you want to choose the shingle color based on the following criteria (rather than popularity):

  • The color of your home’s siding. The color of your home’s siding should complement the color of your new roof and vice versa. 
  • The color of your home’s trim. You’ll also want to consider the color of your window shutters, trims, and other exterior accents, as these should also complement the designer shingles.
  • The surroundings of your home. It’s also a good idea to consider the look of the other homes in your neighborhood as well as your landscaping. Think about how the various shingle color options will blend, pop against, or clash with the trees, buildings, and other elements.
  • Your home’s style. There are plenty of different home styles, but the right-colored roofing shingles should exemplify that style, whether it be contemporary or traditional. For example, a Victorian-style home wouldn’t do well with GAF’s Patriot Red shingles!

There’s a lot to consider when choosing a new shingle color for your next roofing project. Of course, if you’re having trouble, it’s best to consult with the roofing experts at Whitt’s Quality Roofing.
