A metal roof can completely transform the aesthetics of your home. Homeowners do their best to find the perfect color to complement their siding. Following the trends in metal roofing can help you out! We are expecting to see earth-tone color palettes incorporated into roofing. Unless you are planning to renovate the entire exterior of your home, we recommend working with your current siding color. To begin, look at the undertone of your siding. Colors like red, yellow, and beige carry a warm undertone. Colors such as gray, blue, and green carry a cool undertone. Here are the trending Sherwin Williams WeatherXL™ colors that will complement each undertone.

    • Old Town Gray
    • Taupe
  • Trending WeatherXL™ Warm Undertone Colors
    • Buckskin
    • Light Stone

The second trend we can expect to see in 2021 is texture on metal roofing panels. Homeowners are beginning to incorporate texture in both interior and exterior design. Sherwin Williams has created a crinkle finish paint to coat on metal roofing panels. The crinkle finish creates a unique visual, adds some depth, and will camouflage potential blemishes. Metal roofs tend to be reflective of the sun, and not every homeowner enjoys the reflective appearance. The crinkle finish does not create a completely matte finish, but it takes away much of the reflective properties. Be prepared to see more customers choosing a crinkle finish for their metal roofs in 2021!

Homeowners across America are becoming motivated to reduce their carbon footprint on this earth. Environmentally conscious decisions are being made from one home to the next. In 2021 we can expect to see more homeowners making the switch to a metal roof. The metal roofing system on its own is incredibly environmentally friendly. A metal roof will be 100% recyclable by the end of its lifetime. They are incredibly energy efficient as well. Metal panels reflect approximately 80% of sun rays back into the sky; therefore, saving up to 40% on energy costs. To add to the environmentally conscious decisions, homeowners can choose to add solar panels as well. Trends come and go, and some remain timeless. Homeowners certainly have their own style, but sometimes it is inspiring to see what’s trending from one year to the next. Will you incorporate these trends within your home during 2021?
