If your roof is older than twenty years, or has suffered storm damage, it’s time to consider what the replacement will look like. Take a drive in both your neighborhood and the newer areas, looking for similar homes. Notice which roofs catch your eye. The team at Coastal Roofing can also help guide your choices.
Fashionable Colors This Year
Overall, top roof color trends for 2022 will be high contrast black, gray, silver, and bronze combinations for many house styles and designs. Popular lower contrast color options include:
- Light brown hues like sand, taupe, khaki
- Darker brown hues— rustic brown, tree bark, weathered wood
- Cooler denim, navy, sky, forest, moss, hunter
These colors will never go out of style, adding a classic look to your home’s exterior. For more texture, use shingles that combine a few colors for a speckled look that can accent many colors at once.
Asphalt Shingles Are Always Popular
Still the most widely used roofing material, they presently cover one-half or more of American homes. They are affordable, available with more colors and designs than in the past. They withstand weather conditions and last up to 20 years with proper maintenance.
Always a durable, long-lasting and stylish option, metal roofs continue to shine. In recent years, new technology has allowed it to become more silent than ever. Along with becoming quieter, it’s also available both larger sheets and smaller shingle sized options. Metal roofs are good insulators and reflect the UV rays of the sun. Lastly, metal is recyclable which cuts waste and benefits the environment.
When winter weather hits, ice and snow simply slide off onto the ground. They can withstand high winds and make the home look great.
Synthetic Roofing Materials and Greener Options
Another trend in roofing is synthetic materials. Polyurethane is a very durable, lightweight material and will hold up in the harshest of environments.
Instead of harvesting new materials like oil and metal to create these roofing shingles, some manufacturers use recycled materials to create shingles from rubber and plastic. This green option offers more looks and lower material costs. Another choice is a “cool roof” made with UV reflecting material that helps to reduce the heat absorbed by your home.
Invest in Quality Roof Materials and Professional Installation
The average roof lasts 20 years; some of the better materials last years longer. Every homeowner should invest in the best roofing they can afford and the best roofing installation professionals. But, cheap, badly installed roofing starts to deteriorate and develop problems much sooner. Installation by a top-quality roofing crew will give you an even longer lifespan.
