The Shingle Color of the Year is announced annually by Owens Corning, our shingle supplier.
Professionals who are knowledgeable about color, its significance, and how it affects our lives make the selection.
We present to you the 2023 Shingle Color in recognition of the fact that for some of our customers, the choice of color is one that is made carefully and with great significance, as well as how it harmonizes with the house's walls and other architectural features. In addition, we'd like to highlight a few colors from past seasons to serve as inspiration and help you decide which one is right for you and your family.

Introducing the 2023 color: MIDNIGHT PLUM

The intensely blue universe changes into deep purples as one day ends and another begins, filling the night sky with magic and mystery. It is Midnight Plum's power. The 2023 Color of the Year is seductive and enigmatic, conjuring the enchanted hues that appear at sunset. This new color is a distinctive but also adaptable option for your home, with regal violet tones and elegant silver accents. With its patented SureNail® technology, this TruDefinition® Duration® shingle offers cutting-edge performance while being robust enough to withstand the weather all year long.

Creating color

The goal when developing Midnight Plum, the 2023 Shingle Color of the Year, was to create a color that was distinctive enough to be used on contemporary homes while remaining adaptable enough to go well with classic facades. Our design team combined granules in the colors brick red, cornflower blue, silver, and bronze to create an intense and alluring night sky purple. The blend's various colors work together to create a distinctive amethyst tone that doesn't actually contain any purple granules.

Before and after Midnight Plum

A color that improves the aesthetics of your house and, thanks to the combination of pigments, transforms it into a starry night sky.

How can it be combined?

The Midnight Plum color offers a wide range of possibilities for pairing with the styles, details, and colors of your home because of the combination of the pigments' shades that we previously mentioned. Here are a few instances. Look at a few illustrations.

Shingle Color of the Year of previous years

Here are some colors from previous years to aid you in choosing the one that best suits your way of life, residence, and family.

2022 Shingle Color: Bourbon

Chilled blues mingle with toasty notes of gold in our signature Bourbon color blend. Layered hues entice the eye with soothing shades of sea and sky against the earthy warmth of caramel, leather and chocolate. The full-bodied depth of this color mix gives Bourbon its greatest strengths—versatility and an enduringly beautiful finish. All TruDefinition® Duration® Designer Colors Collection shingles come with the advanced performance of patented SureNail® Technology, tough enough to weather the elements, year round.

Just like feeling the calm, quietness of a walk in the woods, Aged Copper is a peaceful blend of colors that instantly remind you of nature's expansive beauty. Earthly elements of deep orange, sage green, and brown granules mix together to create a warm, welcoming look. You'll be pleasantly surprised by the wide range of exterior palettes that will be complemented by Aged Copper. Bring the beauty of nature to your home and enjoy the scenery you'll see from the curb.

2021 Shingle Color: Aged Copper

2020 Shingle Color: Pacific Wave

Calm and peaceful yet strong and impressive, Pacific Wave is a color you will unexpectedly love. It was inspired by the color movement of the deep and powerful Pacific Ocean, and it takes a regular gray shingle to a whole new level. Pale blue mixed with dark and light gray granules will help these shingles look great on a beach cottage at the coast or on a classic Colonial brick home away from water. And best of all, Pacific Wave can pair with a wide range of accent colors, so you can let your personality shine.

A timeless color that masters richness and depth using granules of classic black with gray, umber brown and a hint of sable. Dark and mysterious, TruDefinition® Duration® Designer shingles in Black Sable are the definition of fierce sophistication and dangerous beauty.

2019 Shingle Color: Black Sable

2018 Shingle Color: Sand Dune

As the waves roll in and the breeze blows, sit back, deep exhale and let the sunshine warm your toes in the sand. The color Sand Dune helps create a sense of natural grandeur with a relaxed versatile medley of coastal hues. It combines elements of bisque beige, driftwood, shale and charcoal with a touch of light sky blue that paints a canvas of effortless elegance with a range of exterior palettes. Sand Dune is light and airy and very approachable—leave your cares behind and enjoy the view.

As a nod to the gravitational and tactile quality of wood which makes us want to touch it as well as the calming influence of blue in our lives, we are excited to name Sedona Canyon, of our Duration® Designer Colors Collection shingles, as the Owens Corning Roofing 2017 SHINGLE COLOR OF THE YEAR. It is a color that both grounds us and allows us to have greater versatility in color choice, no matter what the season.
