Choosing Roof Color Complimentary to Current Exterior Paint Colors

Hello all,

The time has come to spend thousands of dollars replacing our old roof, and I don't want to botch it by selecting the wrong color. I have narrowed it down, but just can't quite tell which one would be best. Please share which color of shingles you prefer. Thanks!

I think 4 is just too brown, kinda feel the same about 1. So it's between 2 and 3 for me. 2 looks a little charcoaly, but that could be the pic. That brings it to 3...

If yer buying from a dealer or installer...they may have samples you could take home?

I'd cross out #4 also but would like to see samples up against the siding before choosing from one of the other 3.
