Top Five Exterior Trends of 2020
It’s 2020, what home improvements are on the horizon this year? Climate extremes have wreaked havoc and homeowners this year are looking at home improvements that not only add longer-lasting performance but getting more for their home improvement dollar. Below are five trends for the exterior of your home that are driving purchase decisions for today's homeowners.
Trend #1: Home Exterior - Columns
The exterior of the home is the first thing people see when they arrive at your home. The utilization of columns and using natural materials such as wood provide a fortress-like feel that shows off the resilience of the exterior of the home. The combination of columns and metal roofs helps achieve a natural look with low-maintenance upkeep and longer stability.
Trend #2: Custom Roofing
When you look down a street everyone seems to have the same roof. Make yours stand out with a one-of-a-kind, custom look. The use of copper accents and different styles and mediums allows your house to stand out over the rest. This adds not only curb appeal but added value to your home.
Trend #3: Energy Efficiency
Having an energy efficient home gives you the ability to save money and produce energy all while being more protected and durable. By installing a metal roof, you will obtain a more secure base for solar systems adding even more energy and cost savings. Metal roofs are designed to reduce impacts from the environment and stand up to many different climate extremes such as wildfires and damage from hail and high winds also makes them a better, long-term investment.
Trend #4: Bold Roof Colors
What better way to boost your curb appeal than by adding a bold metal roof color. Metal roofing has become the second most popular choice in roofing today. Today, homeowners are using bold metal colors to help boost the curb appeal of their homes and accentuate unique styles.
Trend #5: Natural Lighting
One of the major selling points in homes today is natural lighting. Skylights brighten spaces and help lower utility bills by providing natural light. You can install skylights on all types of roofing, even metal roofs. Note, it is important to plan ahead if considering installing skylights on a metal roof since they can’t be added after like with asphalt shingles.
