1. One of the coolest trends in specialized custom roofing today is the new approach to solar-paneled roofing. Say goodbye to the clunky, enormous solar panels and hello to the new solar panel roofing tiles. Tesla was one of the first manufacturers to create solar panels in the same shape and functionality as roofing tiles. These roofs look like regular asphalt tiled roofs, but upon closer examination, one can see that the tiles are solar panels. While the construction can vary from roof to roof, the trend is hot, and many people are jumping on the solar panel bandwagon.
2. The close second to those solar panels is an oldie but a serious goodie, slate. Slate has made a significant comeback in the last few years, especially with the advent of social media mediums like Instagram. As more slate artisans are sharing their artistic creations with the world, the uninformed roof buyer can quickly become a slate roof connoisseur. We are seeing more and more eclectic, slate roofs hitting Instagram land. The funkier the last slate roof to appear on that trendy custom home builders page looked, the funkier and cooler the next client wants to go with their slate roof. Think about how incredible slate roofing is to start with, and then consider its wonderful functionality. It’s no wonder why it has garnered such a following.
3. Last but certainly not least is metal roofing. Metal roofing is another big trend in specialized custom roofing. Forget about how amazingly durable and versatile metal roofing is, let’s talk about how stylish metal roofing can be. Even people with classic not so trendy roofing materials are mixing in some beautiful metal roofing accents. Keep your eyes open next time you pass by a beautiful house. Even if the home has classic roofing materials, the chances are high that it will have have a cupola or two made of copper or maybe even a gutter system with polished metal roofing materials. Metal is so versatile and comes in such an array of colors that it is hard for many people to pass it up.
