In our online continuing education course, The FRESH Approach to Choosing Exterior Color, we discuss how to choose a roofing product and color for a commercial or retail building. Blending in with the neighborhood is one of the main things to take into consideration, and for this retail building in the coastal town of Nags Head, NC the architect did just that by customizing a DaVinci Shake blend. Installed by Gallop Roofing out of Wanchese, NC, our multi-width shake alternative was customized using Slate Gray which is a color typically used in our slate line. Customizing a blend can be done when you choose any of our 49 standard colors and put together your own combination of colors (or in this case, single color) to create something we don't typically make. It can be done by requesting sample tiles or color chips, but many people choose to start with our color design tool. We can plug most combinations of colors into any product mold, like in the case of this project.
