Shingles

Shingles

Asphalt shingles have been a popular roofing choice since the early 1900s. However, since then, several roofing innovations, including composite roof shingles, have been introduced.

Like asphalt, composite shingles are cost-effective and simple to install. But they also have a range of other benefits.

What are Composite Roof Shingles?
Materials like asphalt, slate, laminate, tar paper, wood and fiberglass make up
composite shingles. By mixing these materials together, composite shingles can outperform many single-material alternatives.

In addition, composite shingles can come from completely recycled material. They also can include additives that increase protection.

The Benefits
Here are six of composite roofing’s biggest benefits:

  1. Durability and Longevity: These shingles can last around 30 to 50  years. For comparison, asphalt shingles last around 15 to 20 years. In addition, composite shingles resist splitting, cracking, deterioration and color fading.
  2. Color Options: Like vinyl roofing shingles, composite shingles come in a
    variety of colors and styles. They can fit almost every aesthetic you want.
  3. Impact Rating: These shingles have a Class 4 impact rating, so they stand up to
    high winds, along with heavy rain and hail damage, well. They’re also fabricated
    to resist fires, moisture and pests.
  4. Lower Environmental Impacts: As mentioned, some composite roof shingles are made entirely from recycled materials. Additionally, the shingles themselves are often recyclable.
  5. Lightweight: Composite shingles weigh about as much as asphalt shingles do. They’re easy to handle and don’t require any extra roof bracing.
  6. Cost-Effectiveness: At face value, these shingles are more expensive than asphalt However, when you consider their long lifetime and low required
    maintenance, they’re often the most cost-effective long-term option.

These are just some of the reasons why homeowners consider composite roof shingles.
