When it comes to roofing, attention to detail is paramount. Roof trim—commonly known as drip edge or eave trim—not only provides functional benefits but also plays a crucial role in enhancing the aesthetic appeal of a building. In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift in the color and design trends surrounding drip edge and fascia. From classic white to modern black and every color in between, the options for roof trim have expanded, allowing homeowners, builders and contractors to personalize their exteriors like never before, and why many are turning to Quality Edge for the widest range of trim options.

The Classic White Drip Edge and Fascia

For decades, the classic white drip edge and fascia have been a staple in residential roofing. The contrasting white trim against dark shingles provides a timeless, clean look. This traditional approach has remained popular due to its versatility and ability to complement various architectural styles. Like a picture frame, white drip edge frames the roof, siding and key architectural elements, drawing attention to the colors and style of the home while remaining neutral and timeless.

Black Drip Edge Creates a Thicker, Architectural Roof Design

In recent years, black drip edge has gained significant popularity across the country. By matching the color of the drip edge to the shingles, the visual thickness of the roof is increased. In markets where flat, modern roofs are desired, but not functional, homeowners combine dark shingles and trim to draw inspiration to make their sloped roof look more substantial and architectural. This trend is particularly effective for roofs with lighter-colored shingles, where the contrast between the dark trim and light shingles creates a visually striking effect.

Siding-Matched Drip Edge, Fascia, and Soffit

To achieve a cohesive exterior appearance, homeowners and builders are now opting for siding-matched drip edge, fascia, and soffit. And this is not as easy as it sounds, because not all roof trim manufacturers offer matching colors for fascia, soffit, and siding. By selecting trim colors that harmonize with the siding, the entire exterior becomes an integrated, harmonious composition. This trend allows for a greater range of color options, enabling creativity and personalization in exterior design.

Quality Edge Infinity Drip Edge and Pre-Notch Drip Edge

Quality Edge, a leading manufacturer in the residential exterior industry, has introduced two drip edge options that provide even more versatility and color choices. Infinity Drip Edge from Quality Edge enables seamless integration with various roofing materials and colors and provides a clean finish by offering an infinite overlap with no notching needed. This innovative option reduces labor and meets any local building code requirements.

Pre-Notch Drip Edge by Quality Edge simplifies the installation process, allowing for faster and more efficient trim installation. This pre-engineered solution saves time and reduces the risk of errors, ensuring a professional finish.

Both Infinity and Pre-Notch Drip Edge are available in a range of colors to match Quality Edge Pre-Engineered Fascia and TruVent Hidden Vent Soffit. Quality Edge stands alone in offering a comprehensive trim program with colors to match, contrast and work together providing homeowners more options that anything on the market.


As roofing trends continue to evolve, the importance of drip edge and fascia in creating an aesthetically pleasing and functional roof cannot be understated. The shift from classic white trim to black drip edge, as well as the emergence of siding-matched options, showcases the desire for personalized exterior design.

With the introduction of innovative solutions like Quality Edge’s Infinity Drip Edge and Pre-Notch Drip Edge, the market now offers a wider range of colors and choices than ever before. Whether it’s achieving a timeless look, creating the illusion of thickness, or harmonizing with siding, homeowners and builders can now explore a multitude of options to achieve their desired roof trim aesthetics.

Investing in high-quality drip edge and fascia not only enhances the overall appearance of a building but also provides essential protection against water damage.
