I'm not hopeful, BUT:

Can shingle color be changed without reroofing? We found a perfect house with a bad color scheme. It could be fixed by changing the color of the shutters, but unfortunately, they were designed to match the roof, which is a maroon color.

It seems wasteful to reroof for color. Can anything be done to make the roof dark brown?

Hi TomA,

These days, ANYTHING can be painted. (Assuming you're talking about asphalt/fiberglass shingles ...) If you paint your roof, and it begins to peel (which I guarantee it will), it will look worst.

Hey, it's hard these days to buy the 'perfect house'. You are prepared for the worst it seems, so if the roof is in good shape, let it wear out and then re-shingle. LIke you said, a good roof isn't worth throwing $$$ at when it's in good shape. Save the $$$, or spend it on something that needs fixin'.

My best to ya and hope this helps.
