These Top 3 Curb Appeal Trends are Captivating Homeowners in 2023
What are the current curb appeal trends for the new year? According to the Metal Roofing Alliance (MRA), 2023 is all about combining aesthetics with practicality, emphasizing that beauty is not just skin-deep. MRA’s top three residential metal roofing trends for 2023 are:
1. Homeowners are drawn to the dark and dramatic look.
The allure of the dark and dramatic Homeowners are increasingly drawn to the bold and mysterious look of homes with deep shades of gray bordering on black for their metal roofs. To fully embrace this trend, some homeowners are even using metal cladding on their walls. Despite the dark color, quality metal roofing with advanced coatings can still provide significant energy savings and better solar emissivity, resulting in cooler interiors and lower utility bills. Metal roofing is also an excellent choice for homes in wildfire-prone areas. Pairing this look with brightly colored accents like a front door or garden decor creates a striking and modern aesthetic that’s sure to impress in 2023.
2. The allure of anodized metal is the highlight of this year’s trend.
The second trend for curb appeal style in the new year is all about the allure of anodized aluminum. Homeowners seeking a bold and unique look for their metal roof should consider anodized aluminum, which showcases the natural metallic depth and sheen of the organic aluminum alloy while minimizing color variations. This process creates a rich, dimensional hue that sets it apart from standard roofing options.
The beauty of anodized aluminum extends beyond its appearance. Unlike coatings, anodized aluminum is created through an electro-chemical process that converts the aluminum into aluminum oxide, resulting in exceptional strength, durability, and resistance to damage. Anodized aluminum offers superior protection against corrosion and rust, as well as resistance to nicks and scratches, making it one of the most durable surface finishes available. This makes it an ideal choice for coastal regions where corrosion can wreak havoc on other materials, even those with coatings.
3. Say goodbye to boring rooftops because mixing and matching different combinations of metal roofing is captivating homeowners.
The third trend for curb appeal style in the new year is all about mixing and matching different combinations of stamped, stone-coated, and various patterned, shaped, and colored metal roofing options. Metal roofing provides an extensive range of shades, patterns, and designs, making it easy for homeowners to combine different looks and styles to highlight unique architectural features such as turrets, dormers, porches, and outbuildings. For those interested in pricier alloys such as copper, using it as an accent with other metals is an excellent way to showcase special rooftop features without exceeding the budget.
More and more homeowners are recognizing the untapped potential of their rooftops. Instead of opting for a mundane roof, homeowners are seizing the opportunity to improve both performance and style points by utilizing metal roofing’s versatility. With the help of a skilled and experienced installer, quality material, and a vision for design, the possibilities for creating an aesthetically pleasing and functional metal roof are endless. According to Renee Ramey, Executive Director of the MRA, homeowners can elevate their homes’ style and performance to new heights by choosing metal roofing.
