Innovative Roofing Ideas

Most homes have a roof that is typically made of asphalt, metal, shingles, and so on. However, did you know that these are not the only options for your roof? New innovative ideas are changing the way we look at exterior home design.

  • “Green” Roofs

Although this is not more affordable than traditional roofing, the advances to green roofing are more valuable to some. The richness of vegetation, curb appeal, unmatched insulation, and storm-water management make this option an amazing alternative.

  • Thatch Roofs

Installers of thatch roofs say that this ancient material can last for over 50 years if installed correctly. In this day and age, these roofs are equipped with fire-resistant elements, and they are an extremely durable and affordable option. These are not used traditionally, but tropical climates get their money’s worth from thatch roofs.

  • Copper Roofs

Like a green roof, you will definitely pay a pretty penny to get this premium statement look on your home. Copper roofing is mostly for those looking to get the appearance factor, but it does have elements of longevity and durability.

  • Synthetic Tiles

By replacing traditional shingles or slate, you can create a less authentic, but reliable form of roofing with the use of synthetic tiles. These tiles are molded from rubber or plastic materials, and they come in numerous colors to match your preferred color palate. These tiles are gaining popularity because they look real, have ease of installation, and are very affordable.

  • Recycled Compost Shingles

These share similarities with synthetic tiles, but they are made from recycled materials.  Unfortunately, they can cost as much as an asphalt-based roof, but they are gaining popularity because of their environmentally friendly characteristics.
