Trends in the Roofing Industry


The roof is one of the home’s most important features because it protects everything underneath it. While a properly installed roof can last for several decades with the appropriate care and maintenance, eventually, it will need to be replaced.

Top Roofing Trends of 2020

With 2020 now in full swing, there’s no better time to review the latest roofing trends, so you know what’s available if you’re in the market for a new roof. Here are seven of the top trends in roofing for the new year.

Cool Roofing

Cool roofing is a technique that aims to reduce the amount of heat transfer from the roof, thereby keeping the home’s interior cooler. It accomplishes this by reflecting the heat received from the sun. One of the best things about this new technique is that it can be applied to just about any type of roofing material, so you aren’t restricted as far as what materials, colors, or designs you can consider.

Solar Roofing

Solar roofing has evolved a lot since the days of large, blocky solar panels. Today, homeowners can have solar shingles installed that actually look like traditional roofing materials. Modern solar roofing is streamlined and stylish, so if you have always wanted solar but weren’t thrilled with the prospect of having a huge solar array installed on your roof, you have a lot of alternative options to pick from.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing isn’t new, but it is seeing a resurgence in popularity because it is one of the longest-lasting types of roofing materials available. It’s also available in an array of colors and it does wonders for a home’s market value.

Concrete Roofing

You might not think of concrete when you think about roofing, but concrete roofing tiles are very popular this year. Concrete roofing tiles are exceptionally durable and versatile, making them an investment worth considering.

Living Rooftop

In the U.K., it’s not uncommon to see old homes with green-covered roofs, and this is a trend that is finally emerging stateside. With the home protected by a layer of natural material, a professionally grown and cultivated “green” roof makes for a very energy-efficient and well-insulated roof.

Synthetic Roofing

The use of synthetic roofing materials represents one of the hottest trends in roofing. Made from recycled plastic and rubber, synthetic shingles offer incredible durability and energy efficiency at a fraction of the cost of other types of roofing.

Designer Roofing Options

Another popular roofing trend comes in the form of designer roofs. This is a roof that is built with specific qualities, such as improved storm protection or fire resistance. Designer roofing offers the very highest levels of customization and sustainability.
