Trend #1: The Trending Color

Owens Corning 2024 Shingle Color of the Year: Williamsburg Gray

color of the year from Owens Corning is Williamsburg Gray

The 2024 asphalt shingle color of the year from Owens Corning is Williamsburg Gray. This color is naturally inspired by touches of river-washed rocks and granite cliffs. It is a modern look that uses slate grays, volcanic blacks, and earthy browns to produce a unique and timeless effect. You may like this color for a brown, white, or gray house. Even houses that are painted colors such as yellow or blue can look spectacular with Williamsburg Gray shingle.

Black Metal

Black metal roofs are also trending. These are perfect for someone who wants the benefits of metal combined with a look that is sleek and modern. The striking contrast of black or charcoal against a lighter exterior makes a bold statement.

Your roof is an integral component in the overall architectural design of your home. Unique roof shapes with intricate patterns made with unconventional materials are trending. These new shingles are eye-catching and aesthetically pleasing. This trend displays the potential for roofs to be artistic expressions that add value and character to buildings.

Trend #2: Energy-Efficiency and Environmentally Friendly

Colors that Keep Your Home Cool

Colors that Keep Your Home Cool

Besides the number one color trend by Owens Corning, some other colors are popular for roofs. If you live in an area that gets hot for many months of the year, you may want to look at cooler, lighter colors. Lighter colors reflect sunlight and help you stay comfortable in the heat. Such colors as pastels, earth tones, or white shades can increase a building’s energy efficiency. According to the Department of Energy, a white roof can reflect up to 90 percent of the sun’s rays, while a pastel roof can reflect up to 60 percent of the sun’s light.

Eco-Friendly Roof Shingles

Eco-Friendly Roof Shingles

Having a focus on eco-friendliness or sustainability is a big roofing trend that is gaining more traction. An eco-friendly roof can be several things including green roofs (that were very trendy a few years ago) to roofs with solar panels or solar reflective shingles. Eco-friendly roofs may be made from recycled materials such as recycled asphalt shingles. You can expect to see increased demand for environmentally friendly roofing materials as the public continues to seek ways to decrease the size of their footprints.

Recycled and Upcycled Roofing Materials

Recycled and Upcycled Roofing Materials

Sustainability is at the top of many customers’ minds. This quality extends to the use of recycled and upcycled roofing materials, the ability to reduce waste, and the promotion of circular economy principles. Recycled shingles, reclaimed wood, and repurposed metal sheets are gaining popularity for their eco-friendly, sustainable attributes and their appeal.

Weather-Resistant Roofs

Trend #3: Weather-Resistant Roofs

Withstanding Severe Weather

Storms and severe weather continue to increase each year, it seems. In 2023, 23 separate natural disasters occurred across the country that caused $57 billion in property damage. As these types of weather events become more common, people will be looking for materials that can withstand prolonged exposure to winds, hail, and rain. Impact-resistant materials will be increasingly popular because of their ability to withstand damage from hail and wind which will save homeowners money.

Resilient Roofing Materials

People are looking for roofing materials that are resilient due to the extreme weather events that are occurring more frequently. Advances in synthetics have created lighter and more durable roofing materials than before. Impact-resistant shingles and metal roofing systems are engineered to withstand harsh weather conditions, providing homeowners with enhanced protection and durability.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofs are gaining popularity and will be a huge trend going forward. They have weather and impact resistance that people want. They are reflective and can provide the benefits of a cool roof. Additionally, they are made from recycled metal and are recycled at the end of their life, so they are renewable and sustainable, making them eco-friendly. And, metal roofing is available in a wide range of colors and styles.
