Composite roofing is becoming more and more popular as more homeowners learn the value and benefits of this superior product. While we offer asphalt shingles, metal roofing and wood or slate, we know this is a big investment and we want you to be an informed consumer. Here is some vital information and some benefits of composite shingles.
What are composite shingles? Composite shingles are made from 2 different processes depending on which manufacturer you purchase from. One type of composite shingles are made from recycled rubber and plastic materials. The second option is made by DaVinci Roofing. Their composite shingles are made from an engineered polymer instead of recycled materials. Both offer the most eco-friendly roofing option with the longest warranties in the industry.
Composite shingles are made specifically to mimic the look of slate or wood. Even roofing experts can’t always tell the difference simply from appearance between composite and the real thing. Composite shingles offer a much more durable and longer lasting product than actual slate or wood shingles. When shopping for any type of roofing, you’ll want to learn about impact ratings. DaVinci’s composite shingles have a Class 4 impact rating! That’s the highest ranking a roofing material can achieve. You can hit a DaVinci shingle with a hammer and not see any damage! Hail would have very little impact if any on this type of material.
Composite shingles also offer some of the longest warranties in the roofing industry. There are two types of warranties. Our warranty at First Choice Gutters & Siding which covers our workmanship and quality. The second warranty comes from the manufacturer and offers a warranty anywhere from 40-50 years depending on which type of composite shingles you choose.
The biggest benefit after durability of composite shingles is how lightweight they are. If you were wanting slate roofing on your home, you would have to build it or frame it specifically for slate, to withstand the weight of a slate product. Composite shingles do not need specific build outs or framing. Composite shingles offer the most durable, most lightweight, most eco-friendly and best warrantied product in the roofing industry.
