  • Energy efficient roofs. Everyone nowadays is looking to save money and reduce their carbon footprint. With energy efficient roofing, you can do both. The latest trend in energy efficient roofing is cool roofs. Cool roofs have a cooling effect on your home’s roof. Usually, roofs absorb heat from the sun, making it more expensive to cool your home in the summer months. With cool roofs, the sun’s rays are reflected and/or absorbed, which reduces utility costs. Cool metal is the latest addition to the energy efficient roofing scene. These metal roofs are made of reflective material in order to reflect the sun’s rays. PRN Roofing in Tuscaloosa supports the implementation of energy efficient roofs.
  • Green roofs. Who doesn’t like a nice green yard in the summer months? Well, if you want your home to match, consider installing grass on your roof. This slows down rain when it falls, easing pressure on the stormwater system. Green roofs absorb the sun’s rays, cooling your home in the hot summer months. Green roofs promote wildlife who may decide to make your roof their home.
  • Concrete roofs. This roofing material is making a comeback in 2019. Concrete is easily malleable and can be shaped to resemble traditional shingles or tiles. Yet, concrete is much more durable, weather-resistant, studier, and heavier, providing a more sound roof over your head. Add in the fact that concrete itself is one of the cheapest building materials out there, and concrete is a more affordable option than pricier metals, such as copper or slate roofs that are similar in durability and longevity.
  • Lighter colors. As consumers always want something different and in a quest to be more energy-conscious, lighter colored roofs are in for 2019. You’ll begin to see more beige, tan, white, soft blues and greens, and even taupe roofs in your neighborhood. These colors not only reflect the sun’s rays, helping with cooling in the summer, but they also open up a huge range of color choices for consumers for the exterior of their homes as well. PRN Roofing in Tuscaloosa offers many roofing colors to choose from for your new roof installation.
  • Designer roofs. Designer roofs refer to the style of your roof. Most of the roofs around are practical and are in a style that is easy to build, such as traditional gable roofs, a hip roof, or a mansard roof. Now, consumers want to mix this up and create a design that once again will stand out from the crowd. Mostly this consists of roofing designs that interplay the current styles in different outlays and patterns to create a unique, eye-catching design.
