Are you looking to have composition working done? If so, you’ve come to the right place because composition roofing happens to be one of our specialties.
Composition roofing, or composite roofing, combines a mix of common roofing materials to create a somewhat superior shingle. Many of the asphalt shingles installed now are composite roofing. Composite roofing materials were created due to the ban on using asbestos fibers, which had previously been found in most asphalt shingles. Composite shingles are rapidly growing in popularity due to a number of benefits that come with them.

What is Composition Roofing?
Composition roofs have basically taken out the asbestos fibers, and added other materials to create a strong and durable shingle. In the center of the shingle is a mat that is made of fiberglass, which makes composite shingles fire resistant. Many companies offer composite shingles with other benefits, such as mold resistant, or a high percentage of recycled material within the shingle.
Benefits of Composition Roofing
Composition shingles are more durable than your standard asphalt shingles. They are lighter in weight, making them easier to install. Composition tiles are also a popular choice because they are hard to damage. They don’t split, warp, rot, or crack. They also don’t have moisture problems, making them stay free of mold and algae. If there is a repair to be done, they can individually be replaced. Also, due to their inclusion of fiberglass, they are fire-resistant, which can be a big deciding factor on material when you live in an area prone to wildfires. They can withstand high winds and other elements of nature.
Being Friendly To The Environment
Many people who are trying to be “green” find composite shingles to be a great option. All composite shingles are made with some recycled materials. Some roofing companies offer composite shingles with a high percentage of recycled materials, as well as other eco-friendly benefits. Composite roofs also last longer than standard asphalt roofs, saving our landfills from the debris that comes with a roof replacement. Composite shingles last on average 30-50 years, while standard asphalt shingles last an average of 15-20 years.
Copy A Variety of Styles
Because composite materials can be made with a variety of materials, they can be made to copycat a variety of looks and styles. They come in an array of colors and designs and can mimic styles of other roofs, giving you an ability to make a more custom looking roof. Composite shingles can imitate the look of cedar shakes and shingles, tile, slate and other roofing options. It can help give you the look of a cedar shake roof, at one-third of the cost, as well as less maintenance.
