When enhancing your home’s exterior, aim high! People are increasingly discovering that their roof can have a dramatic impact. The look of your roof can make or break your property’s curb appeal. It’s a good idea to be on top of today and tomorrow’s roofing trends. This is easier than ever since leading roofing expert BP Canada has just announced roofing directions for 2023 and beyond!.

Grey is the new black

Topping the list of on-trend roofing colours is grey, but not the standard one we’re used to. Think complex, nuanced grey-beige or “greige,” infused with a mix of nature-inspired tones instead. Although black roofing shingles have always been seen as a safe bet for consumers, softer neutral shades like grey are turning heads. Black is still the top-selling shingle colour at BP Canada, but grey shingles have increased in popularity over the past year.

In response to changing market preferences, BP Canada’s Chroma Colour Lab has developed a unique multi-toned pale grey shingle called Morning Mist. Part of the brand’s Mystique collection, Morning Mist is the first shingle colour of its kind. This mix of grey, white and brown offers consumers an alternative to the traditional solid grey options currently on the market.

A Balanced Exterior

Coming out of the pandemic, tastes are changing as consumers look for finishes that exude a sense of comfort, calm and security. People are craving balance in all aspects of life and this applies to their exterior design choices as well. They want the best of both worlds—a balance of traditional and contemporary, soothing and invigorating, understated and bold, and a style that asserts individual personality at the same time.

The new offering reflects the move toward more saturated, earthy shingle tones that are less uniform than traditional monochromatic colour schemes.

    • Pairing black, brown and grey

Paring shingles in shades of black, brown and grey with white vertical siding and dark accents to achieve contrast is a growing trend in new builds. Conversely, blending dark siding with pale finishes creates an equally harmonious contrast.

    • Warmer, deeper shingle colours

Complementing wood or stone exteriors with warmer, deeper shingle colours in shades inspired by nature, such as seaside pebbles or wheat, is also gaining popularity.

    • Mixing shapes, colours and textures

Using a mix of shapes, colours and textures on the home’s exterior is also a growing trend, such as combining wood, metal or stone finishes, round accents and multidimensional shingles.

A roof that will stand the test of time

Whatever style you prefer, it’s important to choose a roof that’s made to stand the test of time. New technologies make today’s high-performance shingles capable of withstanding hail the size of golf or billiard balls and Category 4 hurricane winds. A roof is half of a home’s exterior, so it’s wise to invest in shingles that provide the best aesthetic and functionality for the long term.
