  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


What Are the Characteristics of the Modern Home Style?

The modern home style emerged in the early 20th century. Featuring no-nonsense materials such as steel, glass, and concrete, this style was a counter to the elaborate ornamentation that characterized the Victorian era.

Read on to learn more about the characteristics of modern homes from Universal Roofing & Exteriors, a top local residential roofing contractor.

What Makes a Home Style “Modern”?

Modern homes often feature black and white exteriors. However, you don’t have to stick with these colors. Warm wood siding works well for modern homes located in rustic areas. This design can help your home blend in with your surroundings while still retaining a modern aesthetic.

Modern homes have a boxy structure, often featuring a flat roof, gridless windows, and industrial elements. The exteriors are usually made of concrete, stone or wood siding, or some combination of those materials. Expect to see windows with black sashes and no shutters as well as linear stairs and fences.

Achieving This Style

Therma-Tru’s Pulse® doors are the perfect addition to modern homes. Make a good first impression on your guests with these sleek door and sidelite styles. This collection is designed to be fun and easy to mix and match.
