Decision Time

Our big project this summer is to get the house roofed and painted. When I last discussed our roofing situation, I was debating an asphalt product that looked like scalloped slate.

Chris read that blog post and immediately nixed the idea. He said he had "his heart set on using synthetic slate". Fair enough.
With that decision made we're really excited to get started, but there's a bit of a chicken and the egg situation going on. Before we can paint, we need to have the new roof put on. Before we can choose a roof color, we need to have an idea of what we want the new house color to be.
So I've practically covered my entire house in different house paint colors. We're still working on that decision, but confident that we're in the ballpark. Close enough to base our roofing color decision on anyway.
The sample board our roofer brought over was pretty useless in determining the color selections.
I don't think it was intended to select a color from, but rather to show how realistic synthetic slate looks, so Chris called EcoStar and they promptly sent us a Majestic Slate roofing tile fan deck.

We want it to look like slate and we want it to be dark. But not too dark...I don't want it to look like black rubber. Midnight Gray is the perfect choice.
Now we just need to make a quick call to our roofer with our decision and ask him to order the materials. Jeeze, let's get this project started already!
