Pros and Cons of Composite Roofing Shingles

Composite roofing shingles, also known as asphalt shingles, are a popular roofing material used on houses of any shape and style. This material is a cost effective and durable solution designed to last for endless years of function.
Composed of a high quality blend of materials, composite shingles are able to withstand a wide range of weather environments. This makes it a great solution for homes across the United States. Designed with such high quality additives, composite shingles offer homeowners a wide range of advantages.

Special additives are infused into each composite shingle to ensure that homes are protected against algae growth and surface damage. As a cost efficient solution, this roofing material is available in many colors to best match the style of each home. However, you are most likely to see composite shingles on single homes and houses with a sloped roof.

Another advantage of composite roofing material is its ease of installation. Joe Hall Roofing works hard to ensure that customer homes are roofed efficiently and effectively. Asphalt shingles are available in different textures and thickness for maximum durability and style.

There are two types of composite shinglesโ€”organic and non-organic. Organic shingles are comprised of paper with an asphalt coating. This method creates a waterproof protection. Non-organic shingles are most beneficial for fire protection. Both types of composite shingles have a protective resin coating for waterproofing and protection against other damages.

As an economic alternative to other roofing materials, composite shingles have a great return on investment. There are many style options to keep your home updated and the results last for many years to come.
