If you’re needing a new roof for your home, there’s never been a better time than now! Roofing materials have come a long way and there are more styles, colors, and options than ever before. Plus, most roofing materials today are both environmentally and budget friendly. Get inspired with the latest roofing trends we expect to see this year.
Cool roofs are more than hip and trendy, they actually reflect the sun’s rays and reduce the amount of heat on the surface of the roof. This allows the inside of a home or building to stay cooler and use less energy. Cool roofs are usually lighter in color and use a special type of reflective paint or gravel mixture.
Green or living roofs are easy to spot, because well, they are made of plants or vegetation. These types of roofs are made of multiple layers including a waterproof membrane, soil, special protective fabric and finally a layer of plants. They are good for the environment and offer some insulative properties for your home. However, this type of roof may not be HOA compliant.
This may be one of the most common types of roofs out there, but don’t let that fool you: there are many styles, colors and options available including ones that look like cedar shake. These specialty asphalt shingles are called architectural shingles and have gained popularity over the past few years. If you are looking for a roof that is both durable and stylish, this is an option for you!
Darker color shingles have traditionally been the go-to color choice for homeowners, but times are changing! Lighter colors like soft greens, white, beige and taupe are gaining popularity. Why? Lighter colors tend to reflect more heat and while they may not have the reflective properties of a cool roof lighter colors are still more environmentally friendly than their darker counterparts.
Your roof doesn’t have to be boring. Top roof manufactures today have more designs, styles, textures and colors than you could possibly imagine! Plus, with the added bonus of improved technology, you won’t have to sacrifice durability for style.
