Eco-Friendly Roofing Trends
If you’re interested in making your home a little more eco-friendly, consider implementing some green roofing into your home. Figuratively green, of course. Metal roofing is especially popular among Calgary homeowners looking for greener roofing solutions. In addition to protecting your home, some metal roofs can harvest rainwater or generate solar power. They’re also easy to clean and have a longer lifespan than asphalt shingles. Metal roofs can even be retrofitted on top of your already existing Calgary roof for an easier installation and additional protection from the elements.
Slate Roofing Trends
Slate roofing is another roofing trend you may want to consider for your home. The subtle natural shades of slate roofing complement almost any home. It’s long-lasting and environmentally friendly. However, it’s also quite heavy and usually cost more than other roofing alternatives. If you’re considering slate roofing, book a free consultation from us and we can let you know if your roof is strong enough for this heavier alternative and can give you a price estimate.
Some homeowners have a negative perception of flat roofing, however, recent advancements have made flat roofing look minimal and chic. This trending roof style could be perfect if you’re looking for a sleek and smooth roofing option. Additionally, they’re available in many different colours.
