Roofing trends rapidly come and go and sometimes come back again. Check out what is “in” for 2023.
The #1 Trend for 2023 is the Growing Popularity of Metal Roofing!
Metal roofing is becoming increasingly popular due to the durability of it. There is a slight downside to metal roofing. They can be louder. So, if you live in an area that endures a lot of storms, you can expect to have a lot more noise during the storm due to rain or hail hitting the roof panels. There are, however, some ways to help that issue. You can add insulation to the roof. This will in fact, help deaden the sound of the rain or hail hitting the metal panels. There is also a special underlayment that you can get that will help reduce the noise as well. So, with either of these solutions, you can definitely enjoy the benefits of a metal roof without being kept awake at night by the sounds of rain or hail hitting your roof.
The #2 Trend for 2023 is Solar Panels!
Solar panels are being installed way more often as a way to generate renewable energy. Solar panels are becoming an increasingly popular sight on roofs across the country. Not only are they a renewable energy source they also lower your energy bills. In fact, the average household can save about $1,500 a year just by adding solar panels to their home. One good thing is the cost of installing solar panels is starting to drop as well. If you are in the market to “Go Green,” then solar panels are the best place to start.
The #3 Trend for 2023 is “Green Roofing”!
If you have ever been on a roof on a hot summer day, you know better than anyone that a dark-colored roof can be extremely hot! That is for the simple fact that they absorb a lot more heat than a lighter-colored surface. The difference inside your home might not seem like that much, but this can, in fact, cost you a lot more energy consumption for air conditioning. Green Roofs can also improve the air quality in your home by absorbing pollutants and releasing oxygen. The more people are aware of the benefits of green roofs, the more increasingly popular they will become.
