Choosing Multiple Materials Helps Your Roof System Stand Out

Many Charlottesville homes have a roof system that uses multiple types of roofing materials to add dimension and character. When it’s time to fix or replace your roof, you may be torn between shingles, aluminum, slate, or another material choice.

Combine Metal & Shingle Roofing For Eye-Catching Contrast

What we see roofing clients request most often with this combination is that the homes’ main structures use asphalt shingles while their porchessunrooms or other standalone portions use metal roofing.

Here are some compelling reasons to consider a mixed-material roof:

  • It’s Cost-Effective. Metal roofs tends to be more expensive than its asphalt counterpart (although metal is longer-lasting). Incorporating metal into a smaller portion of the project allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds. It’s also common and cost-effective to add a metal feature to a new addition when your home’s roof isn’t quite ready for a full replacement.
  • It’s Visually Interesting. Mixing materials adds depth, texture and interest to your home’s exterior, creating a layered look that enhances its curb appeal.
  • It Draws Attention To Standalone Features. Adding a metal roof to a sunroom or porch highlights those areas and accentuates their presence.
