Slate and clay tiles have long been revered for their unique beauty in roofing, but they also come with a high price tag. As a cost-effective alternative, asphalt shingles have become the preferred roofing material in North America. However, what if there was an option that combined the durability and beauty of slate or cedar shake, but at a more affordable cost? Enter synthetic shingles.
Composite roofing material, technically a polymer-based composition, blends rubber and plastic to create a versatile product. The composition may vary slightly to achieve proprietary blends, allowing for proper branding. Molds are used to shape the material into slate or shingle forms, replicating the appearance of natural materials. From a distance, it is virtually indistinguishable, and only a discerning eye may notice slight differences upon close inspection.
While a wide range of colors is technically possible with composite slate and shake roofing, manufacturers often limit the color choices to mimic natural materials. However, Royal Roofscapes can accommodate homeowners’ desires for atypical colors, including combinations or multi-color roofs, replicating the non-uniform look of natural cedar shake.
Composite roofing offers advantages beyond its aesthetic appeal. It is lightweight and quick to install, making the roofing process more efficient. It is resistant to mold, mildew, and fungus, ensuring a durable and low-maintenance solution. Additionally, the polymer design grants the material the ability to withstand hail, extreme temperatures, and high winds. As an added benefit, composite roofs are recyclable, promoting an eco-friendly approach to roofing projects.
With its combination of beauty, durability, and affordability, composite roofing stands as an enticing option for various roofing projects.
