Design & Inspiration Resources For Your Home’s New Metal Roof

Some of us just love to plan home renovation projects, scrolling through Pinterest from the comfort of our couch, and imagining what the house would look like with a new pool, new landscaping, or a new addition over the garage.

When it comes time to replace the roof, choosing the profile and color can have a big impact on the style of your home. And if you’re considering investing in a metal roof, it’s even more important to understand all the options available to you.

But with metal roofs taking off in popularity only in the last decade or two, it can be hard to find good collections of images to help you in your journey. Here are some of our favorite resources for exploring the beauty and versatility of metal roofs.

Roof Visualization Tools

Each of the major shingle manufacturing companies has developed their own roofing visualization tool, where you can play around with different styles and colors of roofing, brick, paints, and trims. These are:

All three programs have sample photos of many different house styles — but even better, you can upload a photo of your own home!

Naturally, these tools are limited to each company’s own products, which are typically composition shingle. Nevertheless, it’s a great way to try on new roof styles and colors, as well as seeing how a simple lick of paint can change the whole character of your house.

The website of the Metal Roofing Alliance has a superb gallery which can be sorted by color, roof style, and roof material. This massive collection of photos is the best place to get a handle on just how many choices there are in the world of metal roofing.

The MRA also maintains good Pinterest and Instagram accounts with hundreds of beautiful photos perfect for scrolling through. You’ll see a wide variety of home styles, with plenty of different roof profiles and colors to spark your imagination.


MetalRoofing.Systems doesn’t have a dedicated gallery, but it’s just chock-full of excellent information. This site’s detailed posts will answer just about any question you might have about metal roofing on your home, and there are plenty of pictures scattered throughout to provide visual inspiration.

What our Clients are Saying

  • Rusty, Plano

    All I can say is – dealing with Aaron Lenhart and Designer Roofing of Texas was excellent. Aaron and his people were professional, knowledgeable and nice to work with every step of the way.

    I felt their price was fair and they delivered exactly as promised. What more can you ask for in the real world? They started on time, ended on time and the house looks great with the new style of tile. I have referred a few friends to them since then and so far, everyone has been pleased!

  • Rob Paul

    The roof is fantastic and I really appreciate Designer Roofing’s hard work and professionalism throughout the process. It was absolutely the right decision for my project. Feel free to hand out my information as a reference for your company should anyone ask, I am happy to help.

  • Kumar, Frisco

    I was impressed throughout with Designer Roofing’s professionalism, experience and knowledge of the business. As my agent, you worked with my insurance company to get their approval, and I was delighted to see that you ordered specialized pictures of the house to make it easier for the insurance company to assess the damage and approve.

    Your team was experienced and they worked with a good work ethic to get the job done very quickly. This was key since you did not use novices to install the specialized Gerard stone coated steel roof. Your team was well trained: they covered the pool and daily used a magnet to clear the home premises of any metallic materials.

    You had no hesitation in ensuring my complete satisfaction, and sent in the experts to fix a couple of minor things that I wanted changed. Please accept my gratitude and congratulations for a job well done and a super service!! I shall be happy to recommend you and your company to anyone without hesitation.

    Pam and Rick, Frisco

    We just wanted to drop you note and tell you how much we enjoy the new roof. The style we chose with your help looks great. More importantly, the service of you and your team was outstanding. Your crew was attentive to the details and cleaned up well each and every day. And, to top it off, you started and finished when you said you would. Job well done!

  • composite roofing by designer roofing

    Bing and Rachel, Plano

    We were battered by the windstorm of April 2008, which tore down our entire fence, a beautiful 10-year old tree, and a huge section of our composition roof.

    Designer Roofing came to our rescue and immediately patched the roof to prevent further weather damage. Despite a heavy workload brought on by the storm, Designer Roofing proceeded to replace our entire roof as soon as was possible. They replaced all fixtures and chimney flashings to perfectly match our new roof color, too.

    Designer Roofing was very professional throughout the job, helping us understand the re-roofing process, eagerly answering our every question, and giving us the greatest value for our insurance coverage and out-of-pocket costs. If we ever need a new roof again, Designer Roofing will be #1 on our list, and we would gladly recommend them to friends and family alike!
