Here Are the Popular Looks We’ve Seen So Far This Year!
Want to add curb appeal to your home but not sure where to start? At Dolan Roofing & Construction, we often find it’s helpful to turn to current trends for inspiration when coming up with a dream color palette and design for a home’s exterior. And the home exterior trends we’re seeing in 2022 definitely have plenty of exciting ideas to consider for your next home remodeling project!
Each year, the landscape of home exterior design shifts. Some preferred materials stick around, while others fall out of favor with new trends rising to take their place. Some trends reflect changes in homeowners’ values, such as turning toward more environmentally friendly materials. Others, on the other hand, are purely aesthetic. Here are some of the most interesting home exterior trends for 2022 so far.
Owens Corning Shingle Color of the Year: Bourbon
For each of the past six years, Owens Corning has chosen one shingle color from their TruDefinition Duration Designer Colors Collection as the Shingle Color of the Year. This collection of shingles features rich and saturated colors that can add a bold pop of color to any home.
This year, “Bourbon” is the Shingle Color of the Year, a blended shingle palette that includes dark blues and a variety of browns from caramel to leather to chocolate. It certainly helps a home make a strong statement while providing the reliable durability and protection that the industry leaders at Owens Corning are known for.
Not sure if Bourbon is the color for your home? Past Color of the Year selections are still very strong options. And thanks to our status as Preferred Contractors, you gain access to better roof warranties when you choose Dolan Roofing as your Owens Corning installer.
Metal roofing continues to be favored
While asphalt shingles will likely remain the most popular option in residential roofing for years to come, the word is beginning to spread about metal residential roofing. Long considered a staple of industrial and commercial roofing systems, metal continues to gain a foothold and must be mentioned as one of the top home exterior trends for 2022.
Why are homeowners choosing metal? Well, much of metal’s appeal in the commercial industry carries over to residential roofs, including its superior longevity compared to other roofing materials and its incredible durability. Metal roofing is also very environmentally friendly—many metal roofing products are made from 95% recycled materials, and most metals are 100% recyclable when they reach the end of their service life.
But metal roofing also offers great aesthetic options for homeowners interested in making a statement with their roof! Metal roofing is readily available in a wide palette of colors and a range of shapes to give homeowners the exact character they want for their roof.
Earth tones popular for siding and paints
Of course, while we specialize in roofing, your home’s exterior is much more than just your roof! One of the most interesting home exterior trends in 2022 is a preference for earth tones when it comes to siding and paint.
Rather than bright pastels, many homeowners are choosing subtler tones such as mossy greens and beige. These warmer, more nature-inspired colors certainly add character to a home. They also work well alongside wood accents, another popular choice as people opt to give their home’s exterior a new look.
