When it comes to farm living, life is a little more rugged and environmentally focused. Since most farmhouses are situated some distance away from the urban sprawl, their architectural aesthetic fits in nicely with their natural surroundings. When deciding on a roofing material for your farmhouse, it’s essential to choose something suitable to your environment, highly durable, and readily available.
These are some of the best roofing materials for your farmhouse:
Standing Seam Metal Roofing
Standing seam metal roofing is a leading roofing material for farmhouses everywhere. They offer home and farm owners exceptional strength and durability; they can be customised to suit both traditional and more modern farmhouse styles and are highly recyclable material.
They provide fantastic UV reflection, which helps cool your home during those hot summers on the farm. Standing seam metal roofing is available in smooth, ribbed and striated styles.
Green roofing is a fantastic choice for homeowners wanting to blend in with their natural environment. Green roofs are great for keeping homes cool; their raw texture is highly durable and weather-resistant; they also offer farmers extended space for vegetation growth.
Green roofing needs to be installed by a qualified roofing professional for you to reap the benefits of this roofing system.
Copper roofing adds a beautiful rustic element to any home, especially when accompanied by copper accents. They can be styled to suit the modern farmhouse and the traditional farmhouse style.
Copper is considered one of the strongest metals on the roofing market, with a lifespan of up to 50 years. The lightweight material is also resistant to fire, hail and mildew. However, copper is considered one of the most expensive roofing materials on the market.
Slate roofing is an excellent roofing material for farmhouse owners looking for long-term protection. Your slate roofing system can last up to 150 years, offering your home premium protection for multiple generations.
Slate roofing systems are excellent for creating modern aesthetics for your home, and they add tremendously to any home’s curb appeal. They are a more expensive roofing material and not always suitable for all home structures due to their weight. It’s therefore advisable to first inquire about the roofing material with your roofing company.
