Happy New Year to all! We are absolutely ready to leave behind the wreckage of 2020 and kick off a fresh new year. What better way to do so than to start off 2021 with a strong roof? That doesn’t necessarily mean getting a brand new roof, but it does mean making sure your roof is in its best shape so that it will last another year. If you are looking to replace your roof, or if you just want to keep up on the latest 2021 roofing trends, here are a few tips on what is currently popular in the roofing world.
Although not a new trend, traditional asphalt roofs are still a strong choice for roof replacements because of their durability, dependability, and curb appeal. You will be sure to find an asphalt shingle that will perfectly complement the rest of your home. They are also a safe choice when trying to distinguish your house while keeping it cohesive with the rest of the neighborhood.
Metal roofing continues to grow in popularity for both residential and commercial roofs. It’s a sustainable option that can last over 50 years if properly taken care of. In the past, metal roofing hasn’t had too many options in terms of design and patterns. But nowadays, you can find metal roofs of all different colors, shapes, and textures. Homeowners no longer need to worry about choosing between function and aesthetic when considering a metal roof!
Backyards patios and decks have become a prominent trend as a result of the worldwide pandemic. They are a great amenity for that extra “staycation” flair and offer another area of the home to enjoy. Roofs have also been a crucial addition to any outdoor area to maximize year-round enjoyment of these outside living spaces.
In the past few years, homeowners have been less shy about adding colors to the interiors of their home, and now we are seeing the same enthusiasm for home exteriors, too! For roofs specifically, lighter grays and colors have been the new go-to over darker shades of gray and black. More companies offer a variety of colors in different materials, including red, green, and even blue. Of course, just because certain colors are trending doesn’t mean they will be the right one for your home. Make sure to consider the other colors and materials of the rest of your home when choosing a color of your roof.
