Composite roof replacement
When looking at replacing your current roof, you will find that there are many options in design and ingredients of the shingle. To help make this overwhelming decision process easier for you, here are 5 reasons why using a high-quality composition roofing product may be the best option for you.
Roof replacements are a process that most homeowners wouldn’t like to undergo more often than necessary. To ensure the longevity of your roof’s life, it is important that you choose the right materials. Composition roofing materials are designed to be more durable and longstanding than many alternatives. The average life expectancy of composition roofs ranges from 20-35 years. The newer technology of SBS-modified asphalt actually rubberizes the shingle’s asphalt consequently holding onto the granules longer keeping the UV protection intact. This creates less opportunity for the shingle to crack due to it’s UV stable rubberized properties, again, creating a longer life.
- Wind Resistance
The safety of your home begins with the structural integrity of its roof. Composite roofs can be rated to withstand winds of up to 130 MPH. with the proper nailing and ventilation.
- Impact resistance
Branches, hail, and other debris can cause damage to your roof. That’s why choosing high impact-resistant roofing materials can save you a lot of money in potential repairs. Certain synthetic roofs such as the SBS modified shingles can provide up to a class-4 impact resistance rating which can help better protect your home from some of nature’s unavoidable impacts such as hail and tree debris.
Most composition roofs can be recycled when their useful life is over. Whether made from recycled materials or recycled after their useful life, this is a much greener alternative to other roofing materials. Unfortunately, in the Portland market, we’ve recently lost our ability to recycle asphalt shingles to the only site we had available. DEQ and Metro had a hand in closing this for no known reason and this information given to me straight from the owner of the recycle center. We’re hopeful it will again be re-established and recycling asphalt shingles will be the new future rather than the landfill and into our water supply.
Using natural roofing materials, such as slate or shakes, are old practices that often come with a greater cost. Due to being made from lighter weight, often recycled materials, composite roofs are often the most cost-effective alternative for most residential projects.
