With a new year upon us, it’s important to consider where technology will take our industry in the upcoming year. In this post, we’ll take a look at some of the roofing material and technology changes that Buffalo residents can expect to see in the roofing industry.

2024 Innovative Roofing Materials and Technologies:

With the economic downturn, the market has seen a strong shift back to materials that are more durable and long-lasting over aesthetic appearance. In many situations this is synthetic or hybrid materials that deliver a range of benefits, including guides to improve installation consistency and slip resistance.

Though these materials often come at a higher initial cost, they also have much stronger long-term benefits, including increased longevity that decreases the need for replacement and durability over their lifespan against severe weather conditions, decreasing the need for as many repairs. 

However, that doesn’t mean that aesthetics are completely out. The trend for weathered wood and driftwood appearances, being deep brown with accents of either clay red and paler browns, or cooler grays, has held over from the 2023 trends. 

Technological changes include the use of drones for inspections and precision measurements, while augmented reality provides homeowners and business owners to view 3D renderings of roofing projects, making it easier to see what they’ll look like at the end of the project. Digital project management allows workers to review plans or receive checklists on their smartphones, making it easy to keep up with any changes on the go.

By keeping an eye on the changes that are taking place in roofing materials and technology in 2024, Buffalo residents can enjoy the best benefits that these innovations can bring to their homes and businesses – benefits that deliver strong returns for many years to come.
