Roofing Trends in 2019

As times keep on changing, so do roof materials. Have you considered your options for roofing your residential or commercial property?

Just like our vehicles, clothing, or appliances get affected by trends, so does our home exteriors and roofing. Here are some of the coolest trends when it comes to roofing.

Some of the latest trends in roofing focus on sustainable and energy conservation, Eco-friendly roof materials, and products seem to be in the consumer's mind when deciding what's best.

Roofing Trends

Cool Roofs

A new market for cool roofs came up while researchers studied the reflective properties of roofing materials and colors. Remember mom's old, old phrase: Wear white when it is hot and avoid dark colors? Manufacturer's applied this law on roof systems. They revealed that cool materials reflect sunlight and therefore, heat is rejected thanks to the reflective paint and light color.

A cool roof reflects the sun's heat to the sky, keeping your home or commercial building fresh. We recommend that you do your research and make an educated decision. Some cooling roof product cost is comparable to other roofing materials; you might find some that are more expensive. However, the difference will return in energy savings.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing was considered unappealing for residential purposes for a long time. It is one of the longest-lasting roofs: it withstands rain, wind, fire, snow. One of the metal roof attributes is its reflective properties. It is one of the most popular roofing solutions for homes.

Solar Panels

Although solar panels have been on the market for a while, Tesla, which has been a leading company in the solar development launched solar tiles that have the same look that a conventional roofing tile does. You will notice excellent savings on your energy bill.

Tesla's new solar roofing materials come in different styles: "Slate Glass Tile," Tuscan Glass Tile," "Texture glass "and "smooth Glass Tile."All of these tiles are made up of quartz glass embedded with solar cells. They can generate enough energy to power your household, and the power is designed to be kept in battery units so you can always have a backup.
