[fa icon="calendar"] 08/17/2021 / by Kaylee Beattie

A great way to add dimension, texture, and a little bit of flair to the exterior of your home or building is by adding metal accent roofing. Adding a metal accent can help transform the exterior of your home, and up its curb appeal. Here are a few different places you can utilize metal accent roofing to create a stunning exterior with some inspiring examples!

#1 Porches & Patios

One of the most popular ways to accentuate your home’s exterior is by adding a metal roof over your porch or patio. This simple accent can make a big statement, and make your home’s outdoor space even more comfortable. Patios and porches tend to have accent roofs that are visible from the ground, so they’re a great opportunity to use a color or finish that really pops and stands out. From Retro Red to Weathering Steel, these accent roofs can really help to transform your outdoor living space into something incredible.

#2 Entryways & Porticos

You can create an inviting and welcoming entryway by using metal accent roofing over your doors — especially your front door. You can use your accent roofing to really color coordinate and tie the finishes into your desired style. Plus, adding a roof over your entryway allows you to add more decor like planters and signs to really make it your own because it will be protected from the elements.

#3 Windows & Bay Windows

Whether you have a large bay window or a few regular windows you want to accent, using metal roofing over these adds such nice character to a home or building. Using accent metal roofing over your windows can help to highlight them even more, especially when you choose a unique color or finish.

Using accents over your windows can also help you achieve the style you want because they can utilize more color. For example, if you’re aiming for a farmhouse style and you have white siding, using a black metal roof over your windows can give it that extra push to reach that style. Or if you’re aiming for a rustic style, using Truten™ A606 can really take your exterior to the next level!
