The benefits of roofing accents

The choice you make for your roof go beyond its function. There are also accents you can add to spruce up your space’s presentation, increase the value of your home and draw attention to surfaces for the right reasons.

What is a roof accent?

Roofing accents are often cosmetic enhancements. In some cases, a roofing accent will also serve a practical purpose — like improving ventilation, letting natural light into your space or guiding water in the right direction after rain. The ideal roofing accents will catch the eye and create some much-needed contrast near shingles and related materials.

Some of the most common roofing accents you might encounter include:

  • Solar panels: You might incorporate solar panels across your roof to generate power for indoor appliances. 
  • Chimney caps: These accessories tie the appearance of your chimney together while keeping inclement weather and wildlife out of your home.
  • Covers for bay windows: These accents are usually made from steel or copper. Bay window covers act like awnings in that they block snow, rain and ice from moving indoors.
  • Roof vents: Does your home feature an attic or upper storage level that gets hot in the summer? Roofing vents can encourage airflow to spaces prone to temperature spikes.

The practical advantages of roof accents

Incorporating roof accents gives you the opportunity to customize your installation and help your roof stand out. Curb appeal is a major benefit when it comes to the value of your home. Since roofing accents are subject to UV light and outdoor elements, manufacturers make them to last for the long haul.

The other benefits of roofing accents depend on the ones you choose. You can potentially make living spaces more energy efficient with accents focused on increasing airflow to upper levels or preventing moisture from coming in near windows, gutters and chimneys.
