Metal roofing is the only type of roofing material that comes in virtually any color, which means you can choose whatever color is currently trending. Here’s a look at this year’s metal roofing trends.
Weathered and Reclaimed
Homeowners are looking for colors that look weathered. Rich colors such as aged bronze and weathered zinc are best examples of this color trend. Others go for the “lived-in” look reminiscent of barn and shed roofing. To achieve an authentic look, consider materials like copper, instead of the typical galvanized steel. Copper doesn’t require paint or coating, doesn’t corrode and grows a beautiful green patina over time. You can even choose to have matching copper gutters installed.
White or light-colored roofing has been trending for the past few years, and we see no sign of it slowing down any time soon. This is because light-colored roofs reflect sunlight, helping reduce the heat absorbed through the roof. Owners of commercial properties with flat roofing that feature single-ply roofing are already reaping the benefits of their roof’s reflective properties. Less heat means lower indoor cooling requirements, which means more energy savings during cold season.
Rich and dramatic colors are poised to take over neutral and dark colors in terms of popularity. Homeowners want homes that stand out; choosing a dramatic roof color is a good way to start. Colors like barn red or deep blues have stood the test of time and go well with most siding colors. When picking roof colors, try to obtain samples, and view them outside at different times of the day and night. Regardless of its visual punch, your roof color should look great regardless of the time of the day.
