Composite Shingles And 3 Things To Know About Them


Commercial business owners know that one of the most important things about their building is the roof. Even with proper maintenance, there will come a time for the roof to get replaced. When it's time to replace the roof, there are many kinds of commercial roofing from which to choose. Replacing the roof with composite shingles is a good option.

Composite shingles are made from synthetic materials instead of natural ones. This type of shingle is usually made with either organic felt materials or fiberglass.

Here are three things to know about composite shingles.

1. Know the Cost

Business owners understand the importance of staying within budget. This is especially true when it comes to remodeling projects, as they can get expensive quite quickly. This is why one of the first things business owners will need to know about roof replacement is how much it will cost.

This cost is usually affected by the location of the building and the style of roof. On average, the cost to replace a roof with composite shingles is anywhere from $4.00 to $5.55 per square foot

2. Know the Benefits

Commercial building owners will be glad to know there are many benefits of having a roof with composite shingles. Some of these benefits include:

  • Since composite shingles are made with synthetic materials, they are more durable.
  • Composite shingles are highly resistant to wind and can withstand winds up to 110 mph.
  • It's possible for roofs made with composite shingles to attain a Class A fire rating, which makes them more resistant to fire.
  • Unlike roofs made with natural materials, roofs made with composite shingles won't fade in the sun.

Because roofs made with composite shingles are less likely to be damaged by wind and fire, they will have a stronger warranty than other types of roofing materials.

3. Know How the Roof Will Look

The exterior of a building is the first thing customers see. This is why it's important for the roof to look nice. Commercial building owners will be glad to know that composite shingles come in a variety of colors and styles. This makes it possible to achieve just the right look for the roof of any type of building, which is especially important when wanting to make a great first impression.

Composite shingles are long and rectangular-shaped, but when installed correctly, the roof will look just as attractive as roofs made with other types of materials.
