As one of the largest visual components of your home, adding unique elements to your roof can help your house stand out and enhance its curb appeal. If your home has a sloped roof, you may be able to show off some of your personality to the neighborhood. There are several ways to make your roof stand out.
Who said you always have to stick by the standard roofing colors? Even with basic shingles, you still have a variety of colors, shapes, and textures to choose from. Let your personality shine and look into the plethora of shingle options for your next roof replacement or installation.
● Wood Shake
If you prefer a home with a historic, timeless appearance, consider installing wood shake shingles on your roof. Although this roofing type does require more consistent maintenance, it does provide the option to paint the shingles a color of your preference.
● Clay Tiles
Although you may find clay roofing more common in southern locations, that doesn’t mean you can’t have that same look on your own home here in the midwest. They can provide your home with a unique look while also providing a durable and longlasting roofing option. Clay tiles also come in a variety of colors so you can have some fun with sifting through options.
● Metal Roofing
You may think metal roofing is only appropriate for commercial buildings, however, that is not the case. Metal roofs are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners because of their unique appearance and high durability. Additionally, metal roofs also have an extremely long lifespan.
Metal roofs provide homeowners with a wide range of colors and sizes, which allows the roof to stand out among other homes. If you prefer your roof to have the appearance of clay or wood shake roof while still maintaining the lifespan and durability of a normal metal roof, you’re in luck. Metal roofs also come in a variety of textures and hues capable of mocking other common roof types.
As a homeowner, there are plenty of ways to let your personality shine through the exterior of your house. A sloped roof presents you with a number of opportunities to get creative and make your roof stand out.
