2016 Latest Roofing Trends And Options

The main goal of roofing options is to provide users adequate roof protection they need. In the past, homeowners had only few options, but today the roof trends are growing and changing all the time. Of course, some of them are accepted and soon become standard roofs while others are replaced with other options after a while. When we are talking about the latest roof trends, it is good to mention that nature serves as inspiration in most cases. The roofing industry has finally realized how important green building and sustainable materials are and that’s why the big players in this industry are trying to implement green technology when upgrading, changing and repairing residential buildings.

If we take a close look at the structure of homeowners today, we will notice that the vast majority of them belong to the so-called baby boom generation. They have the time and means to invest in redecoration and upgrade their own homes. This is something that could not be expected from older generations. So, the latest roof trends are reflecting the needs and desires of this specific category of homeowners.

Roof Color Options

Grey Roof

When it comes to roofing trends, we must first mention the trendy colors. First and foremost, gray color which was once quite popular has returned. Gray shades are stylish and trendy. Choose a specific kind of gray from the color palette to make sure that your roof looks elegant and stylish. Without any doubt, gray is a beautiful and modern color, but what is even better is that this color covers the dirt that accumulates on the roof overtime which is another great advantage because not all homeowners can wash the roof regularly.

Warm Neutral Roof

Of course, gray is not the only trending roof color today. For example, many exterior experts recommend warm neutral colors. People should select a style and color that should be trendy in the near future too. Selecting something else than warm neutral colors and gray color brings certain level of risk and you may have to be prepared for some changes in the future. Finally, green color especially deep and dark green color is another modern color because as we have already mentioned, people are looking for more natural appearance. It would be best to find a shade that will look good with the surrounding. In case you are having a dilemma, consult an expert in this field.

Arches and Curved Roofs

Furthermore, many experts advise the use of arches and curves because they can emphasize the finishing textures. Experts in the field of roofing and architects are well-aware of the requirements of relatively young, average clients and their desire to invest in roofing that is trendy and stylish, but provides sufficient space too.

Green Roof

Green materials are growing roofing trend too. Some of these green materials include cedar shingles, cedar shakes, laminated asphalt, roofing tiles and other similar materials. Finally, solar roofs are becoming more and more popular too as well as cool roofs coatings.

Rock Solid sent Joe to my house 1day after the devastating windstorm several weeks ago. Due to how busy they were, Joe didn't make it to our house until the sun was setting. We thought we'd have to reschedule, but Joe got a ladder and a flash light and headed up onto our roof. He immediately identified the worst spots, and though it was getting dark, he still made sure that those parts were tarped. Joe met with our insurance adjuster, gave us shingle samples and helped us pick the right shingle for our house. Jeremy and his crew installed our new roof. They were professional and courteous. They paid great attention to detail and did a thorough clean up. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the work and the look of our home. Thank you!read more

Levi (Owner of Rock Solid) and I have been very close friends for 25 years, so naturally he was the very first person I called when I saw shingles scattered across my lawn during Michigan’s 2nd biggest wind storm in history. He said he would have someone at my house tomorrow to assess the situation, and he’ll personally call me with the results. The following day I had someone on my roof while I was at work, and Levi called me later that afternoon to let me know temporary coverage was applied and that he’ll have someone out at my house about 2-weeks to repair the damage. He was honest with me over phone, describing to me that he needs to focus his resources on those homes in which temporary covering would not suffice and roof replacement was mandatory. Well exactly 15 days later I get a text from Levi letting me know that someone would be out to repair my roof. I was extremely pleased how timely the roof repair was done, accurate to the dates he provided up front. I mentioned in the beginning that I’m friends with Levi as I want to share with you the morals in which I know he stands for. He’s honest, hard-working, kind, fair, and trust worthy and during this situation I got to see all those ethics applied from Levi as a business owner. I would highly recommend Rock Solid Exteriors to any of my family or friends!!!!!read more

I needed a new roof and wanted to look a little more into this company because I had a friend use them, and she had nothing but good things to say about the company. I notice that Joe Minauro's name was mentioned in one of the past clients reviews so when I called I had requested him,, Joe promptly responded and scheduled a appointment with us, then after we started going over everything with him you would have thought we were Joe's only customers , but I knew this not to be true his phone was ringing none stop. Joe has been very attentive and we felt taken care of through the whole process. Thanks Joe!read more

Kudos to this company and the crew! They took my tired looking mobile home and made it look like new. I had siding and gutters replaced. What a great experience from the initial visit with the sales representative to the installation crew. Very professional, when the job was done they put everything back in my flower bed, my grill back and even my trash cans. Then I noticed they fixed a loose board on my steps. I highly recommend them.read more
