What Is a Composite Roof?
A composite roof, often referred to as a composite shingle roof, represents a sophisticated roofing system engineered to withstand the harshest weather conditions while providing aesthetic appeal. This roofing solution seamlessly integrates several layers of diverse materials to craft a robust and enduring roof covering.
The primary components of a composite roof include a base layer, typically composed of fiberglass or other reinforcing materials, and an asphalt mixture that serves as an adhesive and weather-resistant barrier. The combination of these layers fortifies the roof's structural integrity, making it resistant to cracks, leaks, and UV radiation.
One of the notable advantages of composite roofs is their remarkable durability. These roofs are engineered to endure the test of time, with a lifespan often exceeding 20 to 30 years, depending on maintenance and environmental factors. Their resilience extends to the ability to withstand extreme weather events, such as heavy rainfall, high winds, hail, and even fire, making them an ideal choice for homeowners in various climates. Proper installation also ensures that the roof remains energy-efficient, contributing to lower heating and cooling costs over time. Additionally, composite roofs often come with warranties that provide homeowners with added peace of mind.

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:
