Asphalt roofs are the most common form of roofing used on residential buildings. While they are durable and will protect your home, they can be lackluster. Is there a way to get some extra curb appeal when having a shingle roof installed, especially in a neighborhood filled with homes that have shingle roofs? In fact, yes! Roofers can install shingles using various methods and patterns to create a unique look that generates curb appeal.
Most asphalt shingle roofs are installed using three-tab shingles in a brick pattern. Roofers can avoid repeating this classic pattern by alternating tab sizes. They may use a ½ tab or a ¾ tab alongside a regular-sized tab to create a look that is less uniform. This look creates a pattern that differentiates these roofs from the others in your neighborhood.
Varying patterns is not the only way to give your roof a unique look. Using different colors can create this effect as well. Using different colors on your asphalt shingle roof can give it a more natural look and can replicate the look of more expensive roofing materials.
These are only a couple of ways you can generate curb appeal through your roof. Talk with a roofing professional to see what colors and patterns they offer as well as what options are right for you. A professional will be able to offer advice and help you find the best roof for your home while staying within your budget.
