The latest roofing trends for eco-friendly homes
Incorporating the latest design trends is a staple for many home and business owners. While trends in the past have been focused around aesthetics, evolving technology and innovation have caused people to look for more sustainable material options to cut the cost and protect the planet. Be the envy of your neighbors by following the latest roofing trends:
Solar roofs use the energy produced from sunlight to help homeowners and business owners reduce their carbon footprints and build energy-efficient homes. Fortunately, the bulky solar panels we are all familiar with are no longer the standard. Instead, newer and sleeker options have been developed in the form of shingles or tiles that are aesthetically pleasing and fit seamlessly on the home. This is one of the best eco-friendly solutions for conserving energy and saving on your utility bill.
Cool roofs look similar in style to Phoenix shingle roofing or tiles but are made specifically to reflect sunlight and absorb less heat. These roofs use reflective paint, have a sheet covering and contain highly reflective tiles and shingles to combat the Arizona sun. Cool roofs help with cutting the cost of energy bills by cooling down the entire structure.
Metal roofs have become more popular over the last several years. These roofs last longer, require low maintenance and are available in a variety of styles. Following the eco-friendly and energy efficiency trend, metal roofs also use their cooling power to cut the cost of utility bills. Although they’re more expensive than the average shingled roof, a metal roof is an investment.
Silicone coatings are prevalent among homeowners who need re-roofing done on their home. Rather than pay for a total re-roof, homeowners are opting for a silicone roof coating instead. Its purpose is to create a long-lasting, waterproof membrane that is leak-resistant, heat-resistant, and durable. Silicone roof coatings are significantly more affordable than a completely new roof.
Synthetic roofs have quickly become one of the most highly sought-after materials for new roof and re-roofing projects across the Valley. They can be manufactured to mimic the appearance of shakes, shingles, clay tiles or slate, making it ideal for any home or business owner who wants a more durable version of a specific product. Synthetic roofing is typically polymer-based, and made from a mixture of plastic, rubber, fiberglass, clay, and recycled paper products. It’s low maintenance and high durability make it so popular.
