2023 Residential Metal Roofing Color Trends
Residential Color Trends Overview
As we enter 2023, several residential metal roofing color trends are anticipated to continue and others to emerge in popularity. Trends often reflect a reaction in activity, behavior, or preferences in response to ongoing changes in the world around us. In today’s environment, change is rapid and characterized by an onslaught of constant new stimuli. This influences residential design, with evolving priorities of everyday life and a broad range of new inspirations to influence 2023 residential construction and remodeling trends. This blog will explore some of these metal roofing color trends and what makes them unique.
Color Trends: What We’re Seeing
GRAY, GRAY, AND MORE GRAY
The amount of gray metal variants on offer continues to expand. A popular hue due to its versatility for metal roofing, the diversity of grays on offer today enables homeowners to be selective as to which gray is perfect for their next metal project.
TAKE OUT THE GLOSS
Across the board, homeowners are seeking to reduce the gloss in their preferred metal roofing products. Reduced gloss can facilitate improved environmental integration or provide a more balanced interaction with light throughout the day. The trend toward matte (low-gloss) colors for metal roofing is driven by a desire for aesthetics and is expected to grow in popularity in the coming years.
DOES IT HAVE TO BE PVDF?
PVDF paint systems have long been regarded as the best performance paint system for metal roofing and siding. However, the gap between PVDF and more affordable alternatives such as SMP paint systems has narrowed in recent years. Continued availability issues for PVDF resins and a narrowed performance differential have recast project-specific evaluations if the added performance of PVDF is really needed.
BLACK IS STILL ON TOP
The popularity of black hues continues to grow at unprecedented levels. Most notable in metal roofing, black offers simplicity, neutrality, and depth. As a rich focal point or a contrast, black continues to be the most popular metal color across various segments, including residential, commercial, and architectural applications. Fortunately, modern paint technology allows for the selection of dark colors while still offering heat-reflective properties.
