What Is Composite Roofing?
Because they can contain asphalt, many customers mistakenly conflate composite and asphalt shingles. However, asphalt shingles are generally made of two primary materials: a paper or fiberglass mat with asphalt layered on top. As the name implies, composite roofing is made from a blend of materials. Depending on the brand and type, your composite roofing may be comprised of asphalt, fiberglass, plastic, polyester, and even wood. These different materials are bonded together using resins or laminates.
Composite shingles can be made to mimic many different types of roofing, including:
- Cedar shake
- Wood shingles
Many customers are turning to composite roofing because of the versatility. You can accomplish virtually any style or look you want, since this roofing material comes in a variety of colors and styles. With composite roofing, the options are endless.
Benefits of Composite Roofing
We are often asked if composite roofing is better than other types of roofing. In many ways, yes, it is. The main area in which composite roofing performs better than other materials is in the durability. Composite roofs withstand severe weather better than many other roofing materials and can be more fire-resistant as well. This means that composite roofing can better protect your home from the elements.
Other benefits of composite roofing include:
- More extended warranties of 30-50 years over asphalt warranties of 20-25 years
- Greater versatility of style
- They are lighter weight than other roofing materials, thereby putting less stress on your home
- Made from recycled materials and are more environmentally friendly than other roofing materials
- Less expensive than materials like slate, tile, and shake
- Can help your HVAC system run more efficiently
Though composite roofing can cost more than traditional asphalt shingles to install, the savings throughout your roof's life is one of the main reasons customers are choosing composite over asphalt. To find out if this innovating roofing material is right for you, contact the Skagit Roofing LLC.
