Metal roofing styles for contemporary homes

No other alternative roofing option complements the characteristics of a contemporary home quite as well as a metal roof. Modern aesthetics, unmatched durability and environmental benefits make metal roofing the perfect solution for just about any type of contemporary house. So if you’re looking for a change in home decor that will impress your neighbors while ensuring that your home is protected from the elements, look no further than metal roofing.

Consider standing seam metal roofing
Standing seam metal roofing is an excellent option for contemporary homes due to its customizability and architectural design. These roofs are designed to act as a runoff for rainwater, so they are often built with a steeper slope that allows rain to fall off. Architectural residential is one type of standing seam roofing that is specifically intended to work as a water shedder, so the angle of its slope is particularly important.

Structural residential standing seam roofing, however, can be installed on homes with slopes as low as 1/2 inch. Structural residential is an ideal standing seam option for homes in areas prone to high wind speeds. In terms of aesthetics, standing seam metal roofing is available in over 35 Energy Star rated colors. With a 50 year lifetime warranty and the highest wind rating of any roof, standing seam is one of the best types of metal roofing New Jersey contractors have to offer.

Embrace the modern qualities of GTech E-shingles
If you’re partial to the look of asphalt roofing, you may want to look into having GTech E-shingles installed. These shingles were created with the purpose of competing with asphalt roofing. Unlike asphalt, E-shingles will not warp, corrode or become stained. Additionally, E-shingles are highly energy-efficient – they reflect the sun’s rays rather than absorbing them, as asphalt roofs do. After replacing your asphalt panels with E-shingles, you won’t have to worry about heat transfer causing your attic to reach 120 degree temperatures anymore.The Energy Star rating of these shingles is evident of the cost-saving opportunities they provide. And with cleanly-designed modern aesthetics, GTech E-shingles are one of the most beautiful selections in metal roofing, ideal for any contemporary home owner.

Innovate your roof with ATAS Advanta Metal Shingles
If your home decor borders between contemporary and traditional styles, ATAS Advanta Metal Shingles may be the perfect metal roofing option for you. These shingles offer all the common benefits of a metal roof – energy efficiency, weatherproofing technology, corrosion resistance – but their look is unique in that it mimics the style of traditional shingles with a contemporary twist. Advanta Shingles can be matched with a complete line of ATAS trims that complement the color and finish of the shingles.

The roofing of your home can be a key feature in defining its overall decor. So if your home has a contemporary look, be sure to give it a roofing style that suits it. Call a New Jersey metal roof contractor to help get started.
