Of course, appearances are entirely subjective, and it may be that some households prefer a more traditional look — however, the freshness and creativity of modern metal roofing are undeniable.
Eschewing traditional shapes, designers who are inspired by metal as a material have created some intriguing geometric roof styles. Both subtle and striking, these can add an unobtrusive element of style to any home — all without losing any functionality.
That being said, using metal as a material gives your roof quite a modern look to begin with. As such, if you prefer a traditionally-shaped roof, you will still be getting a sleek and sophisticated look for your building that’s remarkably different to terracotta tile.
You also have lots of options with regards to colour, as metal is easily painted. You can achieve a modern effect this way, too.
Even though tile and concrete are moving to catch up in some ways — solar-enabled terracotta tiles are available in some instances now, and the breadth of technology available will only widen with time — if you’re looking for something that’s good-looking, easy to maintain and durable, then metal is likely to be your best bet.
It will give you the widest possible selection of colour options, along with a choice of specific metals — and you will also be making a selection which brings down your household bills over time and negates the need for expensive future repairs.
