What Is a Composition Roof (1)

What Is a Composition Roof?

A composition roof is a composite of multiple materials instead of being made from a single material such as metal or wood. This is why we use the term “composition” to describe them. Usually, a composition roof is made from a mixture of laminate, fiberglass, wood, and slate. 

Types of Composition Roofs

There are three main types of composition roofs:

3 Tab Shingles

These types of composition roofs are the easiest to maintain and are the least expensive. They are composed of three individual tabs (hence the name) each of which has a width of 1 foot. 

Laminate shingles 

They have an additional layer fused at their base. This layering leads to increased thickness and consequently allows for more durability. 

Architectural shingles 

These are larger in size as compared to the laminated and 3-tab shingles. Architectural shingles have additional coatings for advanced features such as water resistance, moss resistance, and corrosion resistance. 

Why use a composition roof?

There are many benefits to using a composition roof. Here we will briefly take a look at some of them.

1. Impressive Life Span

Longevity is one of the best things about a composition roof. A typical composition roof usually lasts from 15 to 20 years. Well-made composition roofs can last for 40 to 50 years. If you search hard enough, you may even find composition roofs that can last a lifetime. Their enhanced durability grants them a longer life than other roofing options.

2. Cost-Effective

Although the composition roofs are a bit more expensive than some of the other roofing options, their long life spans justify their price. They provide amazing value for money and if you look at it from this perspective then you will find that the composition roofs are intact the most financially viable option.

3. Aesthetic and Customizable

As explained earlier, composite roofs have different types and are made from a variety of materials. This allows you to choose from a plethora of different styles and colors. Having such a high degree of customizability enables you to be very creative with the exterior appearance of your home. The roof plays a major role in the overall aesthetic appeal of your home and hence it requires your deep consideration. If you go with a composition roof then you will be able to choose any style or color you want and this will allow you to give a unique visual appeal to your home.

4. Easy to Replace

Composition roofs are very durable and can endure extreme weather, however, there may come a time when a small part of your composition roof may get damaged. Thanks to the layered structure of the composition roofs, you can easily replace one or more sections of the roof without any hassle.
