Roof Color Question

Hi everyone,

I am a first time buyer. The seller needed to replace the roof as part of the inspection. My expectation was the new roof would have the same color as the 'old' roof. I found that the new roof color is dramatically different and does not match the siding color.

Is there something I could do about this. Walk through is a week away. Any help would be appreciated.

Unless the contract specified that the roof would be replaced with the same color, it is doubtful that there is anything that can be done at this point. What colors are the siding and the roof?

If the new roof satisfies the terms of the home inspection and the color wasn't specified in writing in advance then I'd say it appears you have no recourse. That's a shame since, as you mentioned, the expectation would be to coordinate the shingle color with the rest of the house.
