Aesthetic appeal is an important consideration for homeowners. We all want to live in a house we love, and a roof plays a major role in how a house looks. One of the biggest concerns, then, for homeowners looking for metal roofs is the belief that metal roofs are ugly, plain, and can hurt property value, yet this could not be farther from the truth! Expertly designed metal roofing, such as those by Erie Metal Roofs, can actually improve resale value by 1% to 6%. What’s more, roofers offer a variety of appealing looks for metal roofs that can look and feel like traditional materials. Here are Erie’s top three designs for metal roofing.
1. Dimensional Shingles
If you’re truly committed to the look of traditional asphalt shingles, Erie offers a dimensional shingle style. Stone-coated steel panels look like traditional shingles without compromising the advantages of a metal roof. Looking at dimensional shingles, it’s hard to tell the difference between asphalt and metal.
Erie’s dimensional shingles come in Energy Star-approved colors for electric conservation, and provide a level of depth and shadow that near-perfectly imitates asphalt’s texture. Dimensional shingles are not just a mere adaptation of asphalt, they’re an upgrade.
2. Wood Shake
Wood shake roofs are a natural and beautiful style for any home. Unfortunately, however, wood is far from the sturdiest of materials. Luckily, Erie Metal Roofs has a wood shake inspired design for metal roofing. The look of a classic cedar shake can make any house the talk of the neighborhood but using real wood may be more trouble than it’s worth. That’s why a wood shake metal roof can provide the charm of wood, with all the strength of stone-coated steel.
3. Spanish Tile
Drawing inspiration from Mediterranean hand-cut clay tiles, Erie’s Spanish tile metal roofs give an old-world feel, with none of the hassle that comes with an actual clay roof. These flowing, graceful curved tiles look like traditional clay, but require none of the maintenance, while still offering the same protection as other metal options. A classic terra-cotta look can spice up your exterior and add major resale value to a home – plus the low-maintenance means it will last far longer than other materials.
All Erie roofs are guaranteed long-lasting and come with lifetime warranty. Metal roofs do not need to sacrifice look for protection. A wide variety of colors and styles mean that even a metal roof can be the highlight of your home and neighborhood.
