3 Upcoming Residential Roofing Trends
It’s 2018, and the latest residential roofing trends are on their way! We’ve been in the industry for years, and have to follow trends closely to know what our homeowner clients might be looking for.
Color plays a large role in roof brand and material selection. The path to purchase for a roof is certainly a lengthier one than for a new toothbrush or headphones, but the same influences are at play. Many contractors can agree that one of homeowners’ top priorities in selecting a new roof is the aesthetics, and more specifically – the color.
That’s why we offer you a variety of shingle styles and color options to choose from, including a number of top brands like Owens Corning, Tamko and more.
2. Energy-Efficient Options
Roofing color – and a number of other options – can play an important role in energy efficiency. Certain types of asphalt shingles can be very energy efficient, as can ENERGY STAR® metal roofing, which can come as panels or tiles. Shake roofs can also be very energy efficient, and are probably the most popular, along with asphalt shingles.
3. Premium Shingles
We’re also continuing to see popularity growth in high-end, modern looks for homes, created with premium shingles.
These higher-end products are popular among homeowners because they can get the desired look and curb appeal of cedar shakes or natural slate tile without the associated maintenance worries and expense.
