Try a free, online visualizer tool called ColorView® by CertainTeed. ColorView® lets you upload a picture of your home to see how shingles styles and colors will look on your roof.

It seems from your choices that the pewter gray would work extremely well with a light or dark blue home. The only other real choice, which is on trend right now, is a black shingle. But we felt it just would not fit with the style of our 1950s home. They are quite striking on a white home recently built across the street from us. And might look very nice with your light blue home.
This stunning home is definitely a sight for sore eyes! The classic White House with a Black Roof is trendy, yet timeless. The shingles used on this home are CertainTeed Landmark, in the color Driftwood. The shingles on this roof are CertainTeed Landmark Dimensional shingles in Driftwood.
Honestly, I wouldn’t worry about doing a different roof color than your neighbor when your siding and stone will be different than theirs. I promise nobody is going to look at the two houses and think, “Oh look, they have the same color of roof…” Trying to decide on something from the CertainTeed Landmark Shingle line southeast color selections. Would Cobblestone Gray would work for this house – why or why not?
I simply wanted a medium grey roof, as close to one color as possible. I kept asking the roofer, don’t you have any grey? And he politely said “Ma’am, this is how roof shingles are now, they have shading, to make them look more like a thatched roof”. This Normal IL house uses dark brown roof and trim to pull richer blue tones out of the siding.

I personally like both the Weathered Wood and the Driftwood with a creamy painted brick. I think the Driftwood goes more gray so it would be the best of both worlds for you.
Follow this link to see what color options GAF has available in your market. Consider the style of the home and what was on original roof. If an original roof might have been wood choose a color that incorporates both browns and greys to reflect the color of a weathered powerfit massager wood. If the original roof might have been a Spanish tile, the red or green close to the tile color would look appropriate on your home. This applies especially if you are in a community with roof colors that reflect ordinal color palette of the homes.
We removed multiple layers of old shingles, repaired plywood as necessary and installed new Certainteed Landmark PRO in “Granite Gray” with Mountain Ridge high profile ridge shingles. Infinity Roofing offers a wide array of shingle color options so you can find the perfect match for your home. Filter by color options and hover over a tile to see an image of that shingle on an actual roof. To further complicate our shingle comparisons, both Certainteed and GAF offer multiple options with their architectural shingles. Both manufacturers offer what is basically a good, better and best shingle option. The difference in shingle options is listed below.
Additionally, they have a 5-year, 60-mph wind-resistance warranty, which is helpful in our storm-prone area. On top of it all, there is a 25-year limited transferable warranty so you can be sure your roof performs its job well for years to come. With Classic Colors, choose from a selection of charming greys, elegant reds and earth tones to create a roof that complements your home’s unique style. Just like GAF, Certainteed’s Lifetime shingle has a wind warranty only for the first 15 years of the product’s life. One major difference between Timbeline and Landmark shingles is that the wind warranty for Landmark’s is only 110 mph compared to Timberline’s 130 mph. So, instead of withstanding the ravishes of a category 3, you are only covered up to a category 2 storm.
