Your roof is a little like clothing. While its main function is to protect what’s underneath, it can also act as a canvas for your best design ideas. Want to redefine what your guests see when they pull up to your home? Maybe it’s time to take a second look at what’s on top.
Different roofing colors and materials can change the entire aesthetic of your home, and your options are nearly endless: simple shingles, modern corrugated roofing, eye-catching terra cotta, and more, each in a wide range of colors. Whatever your architecture style, there’s a roofing material that will fit just right.
Want to stand out? A bright metal roof might be just the ticket. For a more traditional look, try classic asphalt shingles. New composite materials combine flexible styles with high-tech features like superior fire safety and impact resistance.
There’s one final set of elements to consider: embellishments like copper accents, cupolas, and even gutters can add a bit of style to this often ignored area of the house.
So pick a material, pick a color palette, pick a texture, and pick your accessories. It’s just like picking an outfit for your home to show off to the world.
