We’ve made it a month into the new year, and we’re already starting to see plenty of 2022 roofing trends unveil themselves over the heads of countless homeowners. If your roof has suffered extensive damage or is simply old and tired from decades of wear and tear, now may be a good time to replace your roof.
New trends in roofing design can give your home a new edge of modern freshness, but these trends are far from simply being “trendy.” These sustainable roofing options are bound to last with durability and timeless sophistication. Your “Goodfriends” are here with the deets on 2022 roofing trends that you may want to consider for your roof replacement.
Metal Roofing Will Shine
While metal is certainly not a new material, it is more popular than ever with incredible durability that lasts much longer than most traditional shingles. They can withstand a beating from the elements, come in an array of colors and finishes, provide an elegant and upscale look, and can’t absorb water- goodbye mold!
If you are on a tight budget, metal roofing may not be the best option for you, as it can be quite expensive. However, if you decide to make the investment, you will definitely get the bang for your buck. This energy efficient roofing material can reduce your cooling costs by up to 25%! Many metal roofs are coated with reflective pigments that can further reduce heat gain in your home. In our blistering Florida summers, we think this is well worth it.

Asphalt Shingles Remain a Driving Force
Asphalt remains one of the most common roofing materials, and this is unlikely to change any time soon. Although asphalt shingles aren’t as durable as metal, they still stand up well against heavy storms. They are also significantly easier to produce and install than metal roofing, so they are substantially less expensive.
With designers becoming more creative, there are plenty of colors, textures, and finishes of asphalt shingling to select from in order to create a trendy aesthetic that matches the vibe of your home. Your home can still pop out into the foreground of the neighborhood!
With roofing designers constantly growing in creativity, there are countless textures, finishes, tones, and patterns for styling your choice of material.
Eco-Friendly Will Protect Your Home and the Planet
With the growing need to sustain resources after decades of misuse, several eco-friendly roofing alternatives can help you be more mindful of the footprint you leave on the Earth. Roofing materials made out of recycled rubber or plastic can be a much more eco-conscious option for your home and can still look incredibly tasteful, trendy, and clean. Consider choosing a white colored material to keep your home cool and reduce cooling costs in the summer.
You can even incorporate an energy-efficient green roof on top of your home over a base made from shingles or tiles. This is a vegetated roof cover with growing plant media that can keep your home well-insulated during both the summer and winter and can even be used as additional gardening space, purifying the air around your home.
