2018 is almost upon us, so what does that mean for roofing trends? There are some really interesting developments out there for roofing, especially if you have a sense of adventure. The roof is starting to have more function than just keeping the contents of your house safe and dry. People are finding some really unique ways to use that space—and also some great ways to increase their home value—with these 2018 roofing trends.
Solar roofing panels aren't going away anytime soon. They have been increasing in popularity for years, and over one million people in the United States have solar panels in their home!
Flat roofing is increasing in popularity in new home construction as millennials tend to select a more basic open, minimal design for their homes. Keep in mind that flat roofs can be less expensive to install but might require more maintenance.
It's not uncommon to find a garden on those flat rooftops. That's one of the reasons that they are becoming more and more popular. If you live in the city or a suburban neighborhood with minimal space, a rooftop garden can keep your space green and provide veggies for you and your family.
For years, it was just assumed that your roof needed to be a dark color—usually black, green or brown. But light colors not only look great, they can reduce utility expenses in the summertime by providing a cooler home.
