Roofing trends 2022
Did You Know? It is recommended to check your roof after every winter to ensure that shingles, accessories such as plumbing vents and ventilators, and sealant are in good condition. There are many reasons to replace asphalt shingles on your roof, such as broken, wavy, brittle or cracked shingles. To avoid water leaks that may occur due to a damaged roof, perhaps you are planning to replace your roof in 2022. Before you choose your new roof, you should know that just like interior design, there are emerging trends for exterior design as well. And it’s safe to say that exterior design is reaching new heights in 2022 – literally!
Always at your service, we’ve compiled these 4 trends that are sure to make a splash in 2022:
Nature-inspired roof shingle colours
Since you probably spend more time at home now than you used to, you want a design that is relaxing, natural and reminiscent of the good old days. These decorating trends also translate to building materials such as the exterior of your home, as well as its roof. Trendy roof colours are deeper and richer than ever, inspired by stone, earth, sand, bark and seawater – all adaptable and timeless shades that enhance a home’s unique character while also evoking a sense of calm and blending into the surrounding environment. Natural gray and beige combinations, along with a touch of blue will be particularly popular, as will earthy gray tones reminiscent of aged wood.

Roofs that match the house’s materials
Clean lines, contrasts and textures will generate a wow effect for roofs in 2022. Asphalt shingles will act as a cohesive agent, unifying wood, stone, coloured fiber cement and ceramic steel elements into a harmonious whole. Shingles with tone-on-tone textures or a clever mix of colours will perfectly match the different finishing elements. They are designed to exude warmth and add a natural feel to your roof in addition to enhancing it.
Made-to-measure asphalt shingles
The wide range of colour and texture combinations this year means choosing a roof that matches your home’s personality and individual style is easier than ever. Rich brown earth tones with a natural stone texture, for example, lend themselves to a country look, while classic, timeless grey shingles offer a soft contrast to the multi-gabled roof of a contemporary home. For a more modern aesthetic, grey-brown shaded shingles work well with today’s popular dark brown and black exteriors.
