2024 Roofing Trends for Spring Roof Remodeling | DECRA Metal Roofing

Spring marks the start of home remodeling season, and if a roof remodel is on your agenda this year, you’ve come to the right place.  

Researching the latest trends before starting your roof remodel can inspire ideas and help you make an informed decision that caters to both personal tastes as well as broader market demands. 

Here’s what’s trending in 2024:

2024 Roofing Trend #1: Black Metal Roofing

Black metal roofs were a top trend in 2023, and the appeal of a modern black metal roof has only intensified in 2024. 

This trend is popular among homeowners looking for a sleek, modern look. The striking contrast of black or charcoal against a lighter exterior makes a bold statement that stands out in any neighborhood, such as the home below in Miramar Beach, Florida.

For example, DECRA stone-coated metal roofing was used on the contemporary home in Gray’s Lake, Illinois, on the right, and the French Country-style home in Dayton, Ohio, seen below.

2024 Roofing Trend #2: Energy-Efficient and Environmentally Friendly Roofing 

The trend toward energy-efficient and environmentally friendly roofing is evident In both residential roofing and commercial roofing. 

In the commercial sector, investments in energy-efficient upgrades increased by 14% last year, particularly in educational buildings, where 30% of energy consumption is unnecessarily or inefficiently used. 

Investments in energy-efficient upgrades also carried over to the residential roofing sector. For example, a 2023 report found that homeowners were willing to spend $50,000 over budget on energy-efficient and eco-friendly home upgrades. 

The residential sector is also seeing a continued surge in solar power, with the residential solar market growing 30% in the second quarter of 2023 over the same period in 2022. 

The demand for energy-efficient homes and buildings has amplified the popularity of metal roofing. Not only can a metal roof reduce energy costs by up to 40%, but it is also one of the best roofing materials to pair with solar panels. Metal roofs are one of only a few roofing materials that have a longer lifespan than solar panels. Additionally, metal roofs can support the weight of solar panels without compromising the structural integrity of the roof. 


2024 Roofing Trend #3: Weather-Resistant Roofs with Aesthetic Appeal 

In 2023 alone, the United States experienced 28 extreme weather events that caused at least 1 billion dollars in damage–the most ever recorded in a single calendar year. 

This has made demand for roofs that can withstand severe weather a top trend in 2024. 

“Expect to see increased interest in impact-resistant roofing material in 2024. Impact-resistant materials can better withstand damage from hail and wind, saving homeowners money in the long run.”

Just as the demand for energy-efficient roofing has amplified the popularity of metal roofing, the demand for more durable roofing materials has also created a surge in demand for metal roofing. 

Metal roofing is engineered to resist damage from hail, wind, fire, and nearly anything Mother Nature can throw at it. While metal is one of the strongest roofing materials on the market, you may have concerns about its industrial appearance.

With stone-coated metal roofing, the industrial-strength durability of metal roofing doesn’t come with industrial aesthetics. For example, stone-coated metal roofing is designed to replicate the look of traditional, less durable roofing materials and seamlessly align with any architectural style. 

For example, in Appleton, WI, the Hearthstone Historic House Museum's wood shake and asphalt shingle roof was rapidly deteriorating and desperately in need of repair. The historic building’s roof, with its steep pitches and multiple layers, required a roofing material capable of preserving the mansion’s Victorian-era architecture.


DECRA stone-coated metal roofing in Shingle XD met the museum’s needs for durability and aesthetics. DECRA’s line of metal shingle roofing products combines the deep texture and dimensionality of traditional asphalt shingles with the industrial-strength durability that only stone-coated steel can provide.
