Top Roof Improvement Trends in Roanoke

Is your roof in need of some work and you’re wondering what your options are? Here are some of the top roof improvement trends we have been seeing in the Roanoke area this year.

Lighter Colors 

Lighter colored roofing materials have been gaining popularity this year, and that popularity doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Lighter colors are available in almost all roofing materials, including shingles, metal and tile. Some of the most popular color selections are soft greens, warm blues, taupes, beiges, and off-whites. A lighter colored roof helps create a softer exterior, and may help keep your home cooler by reflecting the Sun’s UV rays back into the atmosphere rather than absorbing the heat. 


Metal is another trend that is continuing to gain traction in the roof improvement area. Metal roofs are sleek, aesthetically pleasing, durable, and last for years. Homeowners are particularly drawn to the fact that metal roofs are the only roofing material on the market that remains 100% non-combustible throughout its entire lifespan. Metal roofs are able to withstand all of the crazy weather phenomena Virginia throws at them, and are a great choice for homeowners. 

Solar Panels 

Finally, solar panels are a popular roofing trend in the Roanoke area. Homeowners turn to solar panels to generate energy for their home, which hopefully reduces their reliance on the grid and ultimately lowers the heating costs for their home. Solar panels can be a great option for roofs in good condition because they sit atop of whatever materials are already in place.
