When it comes to the hottest roofing trends in 2015, inspiration comes from nature. The industry has come to understand the importance of making use of green building materials and green technology when updating and repairing residential architecture.
Since most of today’s homeowners are from the baby boom generation, it is they who spend their time redecorating and updating their homes, unlike previous generations who are now older people. Roofing trends in 2015 will naturally be driven by this generation of homeowners.
Gray is back
This year, gray tones will be a trend for ceiling colors. Go for a certain type of gray within the color palette to ensure a modern yet sophisticated look. Not only is gray a popular color scheme, but it doesn’t show dirt that easily either. Sounds like a win-win for homeowners.
Other color-focused roofing trends in 2015 are warm neutrals. Homeowners should choose a color or style that will be popular for years to come. Choosing something other than warm neutrals and grays can be a bit risky and go against a timeless investment.
As with warm neutrals, the dark green color palette is also a reflection of earthy materials. With the focus on nature, the color scheme should blend in with the immediate surroundings. The location of the home will determine the most suitable color scheme. Fortunately, consulting specialists will be able to help advise you on the perfect fit for your residential roof.
Curves and arcs
Roof styles featuring curves and arches allow more room for architectural finishing textures. Roofing architects and professionals understand the needs of young, working-class buyers to invest in a sleek, modern product that leaves plenty of room for individuality.
Popular building materials
“Green” materials are at the forefront of home decorations and repairs. That is why materials such as laminated asphalt, cedar slats, shingles and shingles will be trending this year.
Sunroofs and frescoes on the horizon
With the focus on sustainable energy, rooftop solar panels are becoming more and more popular. Homeowners are increasingly interested in the topic of renewable energy. Cold roof coatings, which include silicone, polyurethane, and acrylic, use reflective and energy-efficient materials to reduce heat build-up. They are ideal in places with hot summers where the energy of natural reflections can be used.
