Roofing Trends for 2019

May 20, 2019

An exterior offers the “first impression” of a home and that includes the roof. Other than curb appeal, the roof also provides for the ultimate protection of the entire structure.  Homeowners are becoming more knowledgeable of the value the right roof can add to the property value. Here are the materials that have gained popularity and the reasons why.

Metal Roofing

Whether it is standing seam metal or metal shingles, this roofing material continues to grow in popularity among home and business owners.

There are many reasons for this but the main one is the durability. Metal Construction News reports “Devastating climate events ranging from wildfires to monster hurricanes, destructive hailstorms and thunderstorms reinforced the need for U.S. and Canadian homeowners to take action to better protect their homes against extremes. The need for improved building standards and practices literally hit home this past year, with metal roofing in the spotlight not only for long-lasting performance, but for being able to withstand severe conditions.”

Metal roofing comes in a variety of colors and styles, offering lifetime protection.

Energy Efficient Roofing

Cool or reflective roofing continues to grow in popularity for obvious reasons. The return on investment is greater in areas where high temperatures are more prevalent the majority of the year but benefits can be gained throughout the country.

Reflective roofing does not mean you have to settle on a white or light colored roof. Learn more here.
