Changing color of roof shingles

Posted by S in Colorado on September 26th, 1999 09:01 AM

I had to buy a home in a hurry last winter (in a great
neighborhood) and am currently stripping tan paint
off of bricks. I am about half-way done with this
horrible job. Now I have found a nice solid color
stain for the plywood siding above the stripped brick
which was a difficult color match. My problem is that
the house has an ugly light brown asphalt shingle roof.
The roof is in good shape and I would like to avoid
reshingling it just to fix the color scheme. I am
considering painting it to get by until it needs
reshingling. I know this is not the best solution but
probably the most affordable one for now. I was
thinking about applying dark paint with some sort of
tool or sponge to speckle the shingles and give the
appearance of a normal shingle. I just need to get by
for another 5 years or so. Anyone with experience
related to this?
