Composite roofing scores durability, affordability points

Composite roofing picture

Composite roofing earns its name from the composite--or combination--of materials used in its construction. These materials can include shake, slate, wood or laminate. Eco-conscious homeowners can source brands made from post-consumer recycled materials.

Known for their high quality and durability, composite roofs typically last between 30 and 50 years, compared to the 15- to 20-year life of some competing materials. Composite shingles come in a wide range of color combinations, allowing you seemingly endless design possibilities.

The hallmark of this material is its resistance to blistering, splitting, cracking, peeling or warping. Engineering additives infused in the creation process can help the roof resist UV degradation and algae/moss growth. Pricing for composite ranges between $100 and $300 per square, which is the equivalent of 100 square feet. An average roof should use about 20 squares of roofing materials. Labor costs could include the stripping and disposal of your old roof.

    My husband and I have been looking into a roof similar to this one. We both agree that it is the best roofing for rain. We live in an area where it rains a lot. We really would like to have a roof that is capable of resisting water. I hope we are able to find it in our price range. http://www.metalroofoutlet.com/ServiceAreas/KitchenerWaterloo.aspx
