Roofing in general for homes has come a long way in the recent years. A good, quality roof has always been important in terms of the longevity and perceived strength of a house, but recently we’ve seen designs and materials enter the market that make the roof as much a part of the curb appeal as the landscaping or paint color. Metal roofs in particular are seeing a swell in popularity, and we frankly can’t blame homeowners for wanting to incorporate this fantastic material into their home design!
As the farmhouse look has become the aesthetic du jour in current home design trends, metal roofs are popping up everywhere. From modern ranch homes to sleek business parks, many developers are calling in the durable, heat-reflecting material to serve as the cherry on top of their builds.
In the past, metal roofing was largely disguised to look like shingles so that consumers could enjoy all the benefits of the material–such as a life expectancy over 50 years, eco-friendliness, and resilience against storms and weather damage–without opting for the industrial look. But these days, designers are embracing the bold seams and sleek lines to create a true “look” for their properties.
Metal Roofing is Everywhere
Looking through Pinterest, home design magazines, and even flipping through home and garden channels on TV, you’ll see beautiful examples of metal roofs integrated into an overall curb appeal that is clean, timeless, and has a charm all its own. As home buyers are becoming increasingly concerned with the way a home looks and functions, the investment in a metal roof to create the “wow” factor can go a long way!
