The Rise of Composite Shingles in Roof Design

Composite shingles, also referred to as synthetic shingles, are composed of the best roofing materials to create one strong, durable, and visually beautiful tile.

Benefits of Composite Shingles
Composite roofing shingles are designed to replace most other traditional roofing materials. Therefore, they come in all shapes and sizes, and they mimic the look and appearance of other roofing materials and styles. The appearance of asphalt, slate, and cedar roofing can all be recreated using composite roofing materials.
Lightweight design makes composite shingles easier to transport and easier to install. Easier transportation cuts down on the carbon footprint associated with transportation costs, and the ease of installation cuts down on the time commitment for a new roofing installation.
Warranty and Lifespan of Composite Shingles
Finally, the lifespan and warranty for composite shingles tend to be longer than all other materials. When you use composite roofing materials for a new roof, the chance of needing to re-roof is slim to none. Some composite roofing materials may even carry a lifetime warranty.
