COMPOSITE SHINGLE ROOFING
Impressive, Long Lasting and Value Adding
Composite roofs are made with modern technology often using a variety of materials, sometimes even recycled materials. This type can mimic slate, wood, or a variety of other materials, yet last 40-50 years with MAXIMUM durability, as they are instead made of materials that live really well in the temperate environment on top of your building. They are also rated super high for impact, which means hail stones will do minimal damage, if any at all – something that other types are susceptible to.
SHOULD I GET A COMPOSITE ROOF?
If they are in your range, then absolutely. Seeing a roof covered in slate, cedar shake, or clay tile is amazing and architecturally adds value to a home due to the unique appearance that is sure to wow. The added benefit of extreme durability puts composite leaps and bounds beyond older materials. They simply check the boxes for maximum benefit in all categories. This type is more fire resistant than cedar, lighter than slate, more damage resistant than asphalt and especially more than clay tile… there simply is not much an argument against composite!
