Metal roofing has quickly grown as a popular choice for residential builds and reroofing projects across the country. With a growth rate of 14% per year, customers are turning to metal as the best choice for a sustainable and cost-effective solution. This growth has brought out a series of popular exterior home designs that clients are choosing to pair with their metal roofs.
Aesthetically, metal roofing can be paired with a variety of architectural designs, color and texture palettes. Metal roofing gives homeowners an opportunity to customize their homes to their personal preferences and can be used to emphasize various aspects of a home’s exterior. Depending on the architectural style of a home, metal roofing can change or amplify the overall appeal of the property.
Craftsman-style homes appeal to a more rustic and earthy aesthetic, sticking to a color palette based in browns, grays and muted blues. Metal roofing complements this style by contrasting the common textures found in craftsman homes like wood and stone.
While metal roofing may seem like an unconventional choice for this classic and traditional style home, it can also add a defining pop of texture to the overall look of the property. With steep pitches being a common feature of this home style, metal roofing in dark tones such as deep browns and greys will make the brickwork and paint of the exterior look even brighter.
With low-pitched roofs and muted color palettes being a key feature of this architectural style, modern homes look sharp and clean with metal roofing. Adding a dark roof to a white or grey modern home provides a stark contrast, making the home incredibly eye-catching and sleek.
The ways metal roofing can be used to amplify the best features of different architectural styles are endless, from modern farmhouse to colonial. No matter the structure of a home, metal roofing can be utilized in clever ways to make a home look fresh and appealing.
