    Roofer Question


    I live in a semi detached Bungalow and I am planning to have a new roof. My neighbours roof is antic brown and I will be having dark grey tiles. My roofer has suggested that I have brown ridge tiles between myside and theirs, as to have dark grey ones on the ridge might cause issues with the neighbour. I don't really know what this would look like as I can't visualize things very well. Is there anywhere I could see a picture of this type of thing?

    "Antique brown ridge tiles will look absolutely ridiculous with smooth grey tiles. I would re-consider your roofer as he has even suggested this. #bingsroofing."

    "If you Google the type of tile / slate you want to visualise it will show you. I also think there's a roofing app that will allow you to take a picture of your roof and change the style"

    "You are better off creating a line of ridges between yours and the neighbours house rather than putting brown this way your roofs are separated and no issue colour"
