Composition Shingles Vs. Asphalt Shingles
Most closely resembling asphalt shingles, composition shingles are becoming a popular choice among homeowners seeking to install a durable, long-lasting roof at an affordable price. Because composition shingles are made up of a combination of materials, such as wood, slate, and laminate, they have greater strength and life expectancy than asphalt shingles. Composite roofing systems typically have a 30 to 50 year warranty.
Like asphalt shingles, composite shingles are composed of elements that help resists algae growth. They also have a protective coating that prevents sun damage that leads to fading and cracks. While asphalt shingles are generally one-third the cost of composition shingles, the latter is designed to last two to five times longer. Call RJ Roofing today to discuss whether composition shingles or asphalts shingles are right for you.
How to Make Your Composite Roof Last Longer
Roof replacement is one of those home improvement projects that you want to avoid as long as possible. Since installing a new roof costs thousands of dollars, it’s important to install a durable roofing system made from quality materials. When properly maintained, composite shingles can last up to 50 years and beyond.
To ensure that you get the most out of your composite roof, there are several maintenance tasks you can perform, including:
- Sweeping any debris off your roof
- Cleaning out your gutters
- Inspecting your roof for moss growth
- Getting rid of moss and algae
- Trimming over hanging branches
- Making necessary repairs asap
- Avoiding power-washing shingles
The first step in ensuring the maximum lifespan of your composition shingle roof is having it installed by a professional roofing contractor. Although it might seem like doing it yourself or hiring a handyman is a great way to save money, it can actually end up costing you more in repairs and premature replacement.
Mimic the Look of Other Roofing Materials for Less Cost
One of the greatest advantages of composition roofing is that it can be manufactured to look like other roofing materials that cost more. If you like the look of slate, wood, or ceramic roofing but can’t afford the higher price tag, you can purchase composite shingles that successfully mimic the look of your favorite material. Our team is ready to help you find and install the composite shingles that perfectly match your style preferences and best suit your home.
