Residential Roofing Trends for 2018

The new year is officially here, so it is the perfect time to think about renovations for your home.  You should go around your home and inspect every area to decide which features need a well-needed upgrade.  If you want to renovate or change your current roofing structure, it will require serious planning and time.  Luckily, there are a few residential roofing trends you should follow to give you some inspiration for your upcoming project.

Flat Roofs

A growing trend in the roofing industry is the installation of flat roofs which are being more and more constructed out of asphalt.  Flat roofing is specifically popular in new home construction because millennial homeowners favor a minimalistic design.  Asphalt tiles are popular because they are simple and quick to install.  There are a wide range of materials that are used to create flat roofs including slate and concrete tile.

Solar Panels

While technically not a roofing material, solar panels are continuing to grow in popularity amongst homeowners with more than one million people having the structure installed on their roofs.  Solar panel technology is extremely effective in lowering energy bills and is a great way to make your family “green.”  Solar panels are wise investment especially if you plan on living in your home for many years because they will end up paying for themselves.  So think about making your home more environmentally friendly.

Light Colors Are In

When it comes to the look and presence of a home, families want their properties to look aesthetically pleasing.  So, homeowners put effort into the color of their living spaces, specifically their roofs.  People are shifting from dark, traditional colors to more bright, light colors.  You will begin to see more whites and blues on roofs.  Light roofing colors can also reduce energy bills costs because they can provide a cooler home in the summertime.
