Hi - I’m hoping you can help me regarding color as I am extremely confused! Which is the darker Certainteed Landmark shingle - Charcoal or Moire Black? I went to a local distributer and they said Charcoal was the darkest and showed me sample boards, which indeed showed Charcoal as darkest. I then got several addresses of local homes that had both types of shingles. I drove around and Moire Black looked so much darker!!! It was almost flat black with no color variation! All of the Charcoal roofs seemed to incorporate some gray color and looked more patchwork (which is the look I am going for). I am so worried to pull the trigger because I don’t want a solid black roof, I would like a lighter black with variation…so which is the darkest black shingle, Charcoal or Moire Black?
My runner up shingle is the GAF Charcoal. On the sample board it appears lighter than both Certainteed options, yet on a home it looked darker?!?
Can anyone clarify this for me? Also suggestions as to which is the better shingle - Certainteed vs GAF. And is it worth the up-charge for the Pro or Ultra HD line? I need to make a decision ASAP. Also, we are siding our home with Certainteed Granite Gray Monogram Vinyl siding and we have black shutters.
Thanks in advance!
