The top 3 roofing fads

AccuLynx Top 3 Roofing Fads
April 6, 2024 at 6:00 a.m.

By Hannah Henkel, AccuLynx. 

Roofing trends come and go, but these three are here to stay.  

Homeowner priorities have shifted over the years, and contractors need to be aware of the latest fads. Read on to learn about residential home trends spurred on by the past few years. 

More customers will turn to solar 

66.5% of homeowners are interested in adding solar panels to their home, according to a survey from Rocket Homes. If you aren’t offering this type of roofing add-on, you could be missing out on additional revenue and turning away eager customers. Plus, solar roofing is typically more expensive, averaging between $60,000-$75,000 for a fully solar roof, compared to a traditional roof replacement that averages just $8,000. That’s a significant difference that could positively impact your bottom line. 

While solar may seem out of reach for many of your customers, by offering financing you can help more homeowners afford this option. This way, you’re able to present the cost of the project as low monthly payments as compared to an expensive one-time cost. Roofing software with built-in financing tools helps make this easy. AccuFi by AccuLynx provides homeowners with multiple competitive loan offers.  

Unique roofing colors 

Owens Corning named Midnight Plum the 2023 roofing shingle color of the year, but we’ve also seen an interest in more unique color choices including blues, greens and off-whites. If you’re wondering what goes with these modern twists on traditional color choices, SRS Distribution Inc. offers “smart” color and product recommendations based on your ordering history. 

You can also use AccuLynx to run a report on what materials are popular in your service area. You’re then able to share this information with the homeowner so they can see what options are trending nearby. Once you have your product choices selected, you can easily order materials through SRS Distribution, ABC Supply and Beacon. 

Contractors are relying more on tech 

Roofing contractors have moved away from using pen and paper to run their business. Roofing technology, especially roofing business management software, is designed to help contractors streamline their daily operations. Contractors are relying on tools like automated texting, digital document creation and eSign, and online payment processing to better serve their customers. Though there are many one-off software solutions with these components, roofing contractors are turning to business management software because it offers an all-in-one solution. Together, these features give them the opportunity to save time, win more jobs, and better manage their teams.
