2019 is finally here, and many locals are already on the lookout for a Cedar Park roofer.
A new year marks a new start, and it’s not surprising many homeowners have decided to call a Cedar Park roofer. A strong roof leads to a healthy home, whether in snowy or rainy seasons.
We stand by the belief that most homeowners save money and achieve peace of mind when they get their roofs inspected professionally at least once every two years. This keeps problems with the roof from growing out of control. It’s best to catch issues when they are still easy to fix!
Of course, roof repairs aren’t the only reason people ask for a good Cedar Park roofer.
Many of our customers have reached out with questions about big roofing trends in 2019.
Here’s how we see it:
Metal Roofing Will Continue to Be Popular
Metal roofing has become one of the biggest breakthroughs in the roofing world in years.
Once limited to “functional” buildings such as barns, modern metal roofing is stylish and high-performance. More homes and businesses in the Austin area are sporting the snazzy metal roofs.
An experienced Cedar Park roofer will tell you that metal roofing keeps your home cooler as it reflects solar radiation away from the roof. It also protects you from fire, hail, mold, mildew and more.
We expect metal roofing to remain enticing to Cedar Park businesses and homeowners.
New Shingle Roofing Varieties Bust Out
Although metal is on the rise, shingle roofing is still seen on the majority of Cedar Park homes.
One concern many people have had about shingle roofing is the relatively limited selections of color. Browns, grays, and “greige” are the prestige colors of shingle roofing. They are also said to raise a home’s value by blending in with similar roofs in a neighborhood.
However, roofing customers have been clamoring for more options that reflect their own style.
High quality dimensional shingles from top manufacturers are fueling new decorating trends. Just check the shingle selection from GAF, which incorporates bold and classic shingle colors.
The Owens Corning Shingle Color of 2019 is Black Sable, speaking to the impulse for luxury and sophistication in modern shingle roofs. It’s a contrast to last year’s selection, Sand Dune.
Insulation Will Become Cool Again (Literally)
Hot summers are a fact of life in the Austin area. Homeowners who want to enjoy climate comfort at a lower price have been searching for better ways to make their homes more efficient.
Greater energy efficiency in a home helps you stay cool in summer and warm in winter. While a brand new metal roof is the #1 solution, more modest tweaks can also lead to serious savings.
Eroded or insufficient insulation turns your attic into a heat sink. In turn this causes your AC to run harder and longer to achieve basic results. For a good Cedar Park roofer, this is an easy fix.
