A new set of shingles can certainly add a regal flair to your home—plus, of course, protect it from the elements. But when it comes to such renovations, who says you shouldn’t have a little fun?

Get Green Roofing to Make the Neighbors Green With Envy

Starting this post off with a bang—it’s green! Though we admit it’s not the first choice on the radar of many Minnesotan homeowners, its unique pizazz can create some show-stopping exterior designs. Pair it with deeper, more natural siding tones to create that perfect cottage-in-the-woods feel.

Now's your chance; gray shingles will play the perfect harmony. Trust us; as a siding contractor and a roofing company, we’d know.
