From green roofs to curved roofs, you’ve got choices when it comes to roof design. Below are five design ideas for your roof that will add character and curb appeal.

Green roofs

Green roofs are stunning, and a great way to add unique curb appeal to your home. You could choose to add small trees and shrubs to your green roof or a variety of grasses, flowers and plants. Green roofs are also energy-efficient and long-lasting. And they can even help lower atmospheric CO2.

Metal Roofs

We love the contemporary look of metal roofing. But not only does it work on a variety of home types, it’s also extremely durable. In fact, metal roofs can last up to 50 years with regular maintenance. They also provide wind and extreme weather resistance. And they are also energy-efficient.  

Reflective Roofs

It used to be that reflective roofing was popular in warmer climates, but they’re gaining in popularity everywhere. These roofs utilize roofing materials that reflect the sun’s energy back and away from the home. This type of roof works best with homes a very low or flat slope.

Curved roofs

Looking for something truly unique? Consider a curved roof. Made possible with metal roofing materials, curved roofs are incredibly unique looking, and they can help create more living space in your home.

Flat roofs

More and more builders are choosing flat roofing for residential homes, especially those that are modern and contemporary in design. These roofs, like curved roofs, can give you more space. Don’t be fooled by the name, however. Most flat roofs are actually slightly pitched to let water drain off.
