Roofing is one of those things that goes through different trends over the decades. There are many different types of roofs that all offer similarly high levels of safety and insulation, so the roof that people choose to have installed will depend on their own personal taste and preference. One of the most popular roofing styles in the past several years has been terra cotta tiles, which have a nice brown color and offer a lovely look to any home or business. However, this has fallen out of favor as these tiles have become more expensive, and as people have realized that falling tiles pose quite a danger in a storm and are expensive to replace and repair.
As a result, people are returning to shingle roofs, but the technology has improved greatly, and many different kinds of roof are available for everybody. Another important trend to consider is that more and more people are getting solar panels installed on their roofs, and if you do this, then you want to choose a roof type that is amenable to having solar panels installed and will not clash visually with the dark metallic color of the panels.
