Are you in the market for a new roof? If you’re considering different roofing options, you may be surprised to learn about many of the latest trends taking place in the roofing world. From solar roofing to different colored roofing materials, there’s truly something for everyone.

As you research your options, here are some of the most current roofing trends of 2020:

Solar Roofing

Whether you’re committed to helping the environment or simply want to save on energy costs, solar roofing panels are a great option for any homeowner looking for a new and improved roofing system. In addition to being modern and sleek in appearance, solar panels are energy efficient and can save you a significant amount of money over a lifetime. Solar panels also extend the life of a roof, serving as a protectant from the elements of rain, sleet and snow.

Lighter Colors

While darker roofs used to be most prevalent, many homeowners are opting for lighter color roofs instead of dark gray and black shingles. There are many lighter roofing colors rising in popularity, such as soft blues, taupe and off white. Many people choose a color that complements the style of their home’s exterior. Another benefit to a lighter roofing color is that it keeps your home cooler by reflecting the sun’s UV rays, absorbing less heat during the warmest hours of the day. 

Silicone Roof Coatings

In terms of roofing materials, silicone roof coatings have become more appealing for many reasons. As a coating applied directly over an existing roof system, silicone is applied directly over an existing roof, eliminating the need to remove the old roof. A silicone coating can also be helpful in extending the life of a current roof, protecting it from the elements. Furthermore, because of its quick and easy installation, silicone roofing requires far less labor and time than other materials.
